If the calculator is in degree mode, the ^{r} (radian) symbol converts a radian angle to degrees.

*angle*^{r}

Press:

- 2nd ANGLE to access the angle menu.
- 3 to select
^{r}, or use arrows and ENTER.

Normally, when the calculator is in degree mode, the trigonometric functions only return values calculated in degrees. With the ` ^{r}` symbol you can have the angle evaluated as if in radian mode because it converts the angle into degrees.

One full rotation around a circle is 2π radians, which is equal to 360°. To convert an angle in radians to degrees you multiply by 180/π, and to convert from degrees to radians multiply by π/180.

In degree mode:

```
sin(π) \\sine of Pi degrees
.0548036651
sin(π^^r)
0
```

In radian mode:

```
sin(π)
0
sin(π^^r)
0 \\There's no difference when in radians
```

# Optimization

When you only call the trig function once in a program and want it calculated in radians, instead of changing the mode you can just use `°` to save one-byte (the newline from using the command `Radian`)

```
:Radian
:sin(X)
can be
:sin(X^^r)
```
