The idea of measure of rotation as a method of understanding the concept of angle is applied with moving the mouse shape clockwise. This method and definition of an angle as a measure of rotation is understood while creating the angle by the rotational movement. Two mice are folded-one to take home and the other for the next lesson on the subject of angle.
