Italian Language 1

word for today: Goniometro

my son's assignment: "comprare un goniometro a meta"

i have to confess in all my years here, this is the first time i see this word.
i searched for it right away. i don't want myself to be embarassed when i'm at the school supply store.

goniometro - il goniometro o disco goniometrico รจ uno strumento per la misurazione di angoli.

the goniometer or goniometric disc is a tool for measuring angles.

in geometry, a protractor is a circular or semicircular tool for measuring an angle or a circle.

oh, i see.
i used this thing during my junior high school in geometry. and my son's using in third grade!

i'm still learning...
