## Description

This example showcases a reflex angle of 270 degrees on a polar coordinate grid. The angle is highlighted in red and its position is shown relative to the cardinal directions. Students are asked to identify the angle, with the solution explaining that it is a reflex angle because its measure is greater than 180 degrees.

As part of a comprehensive series on angle measures, this example helps students understand the significance of a 270-degree angle. The use of a polar coordinate system allows students to visualize how this angle relates to a full rotation and its importance in various fields.

Presenting multiple examples of reflex angles with different measures helps students develop a nuanced understanding of the concept. This repetition is crucial for building confidence in angle identification and classification.

Teacher Script: "Now, class, let's look at this 270-degree angle. What's special about this particular reflex angle? How does it relate to the cardinal directions? Can anyone think of real-world applications where a 270-degree angle might be important?"
