Polygon: Notation and Terminology
Both the vertices and the sizes of the internal angles of those vertices are frequently referred to by the same symbol.
Thus the size of the internal angle at vertex $A$ is called angle $A$ and denoted $\angle A$.
This is considered by some to be an abuse of notation, but its convenience outweighs its disadvantages.
