    What situation would be best to use Radian measure? What situation would be best for Degree Measure?

    Radians are unit circle measure, can help with nonacute angles, more generalized. Degrees are used in triangles mainly.

    Ah, radians help with nonacute angles, are a bit more annoying to use as they are not exact numbers degrees are more intuitive but then limited

    How would degrees be limited? I'm understanding it, but just missing a few of the aspects...

    Only radians work in calculus.

    Ah, radians are most commonly used, but degrees are limited because even thogh degrees are used to express directionality and angle size, degrees aren't techincally numbers, we can only use numbers in math. They are not a proper measure, say, when graphing a function
