# Degree Symbol

Sometimes students or those who deal with mathematics, physics or various kinds of calculations may need to type a **degree sign**,
but we do not have one directly on our keyboard. *Degree symbol* can be used in case if we're dealing with angles,
or when we need to operate with temperature and use Celsius degree. It is also a common *coordinate degree sign*.
Actually, there are a few ways to make a **degree symbol**.
You can either copy paste, or use the degree code in your document. See some examples below:

html degree decimal

html degree hex

html degree named

...*Copies degree symbol from website*

The ℃ symbol (where "℃" is a single Unicode character) is a compatibility character designed for use with Chinese or Japanese (e.g. so it can occupy a single block, for example, in vertical text). But the Unicode standard explicitly discourages the use of this character (and ℉ too). Just so you know.

On the Mac, option-0 does NOT make a degree sign!!

Option-0 is the masculine ordinal operator.

The correct key combo for the degree sign is SHIFT-OPTION-8.
