What does degress measure?

Not at all sure what degress mesures.

Degrees, on the other hand, are used to measure many things. Amongst them are:

  • academic achievement,
  • angles (at an elementary level; the mathematically advanced unit is radians),
  • temperature (although the absolute scale is Kelvin, not degrees Kelvin),
  • the seriousness or intensity of some things (first degree murder, third degree burns),
  • the complexity of some mathematical concepts (degree of polynomial, differential equations: the word "order" is also used in this context).
