This varies depending on the design of the airplane, the weight of the airplane, and the weather conditions encountered during the takeoff, but is typically from 9 - 20 degrees nose up for jets.

Do large planes need to take off at smaller or greater degree then the smaller planes?

It all depends on how much power is in the engines that can enable an airplane to take off at a steeper or shallower angle. Airplanes used for air shows and fighter jets are able to take off at a steep angle. Bush planes can also take off at a steep angle. A heavily loaded Air Bus, on the other hand, needs more clearance to be able to take to the air and thus may take off at a more shallower angle than a typical CF-18 Hornet would!
