What is the difference between an initial side and a terminal side of an oriented angle?

As its name suggests, in an oriented angle, the direction of the rotation is important. We imagine the angle being swept out starting from an initial side and ending at a terminal side, as shown below. When the rotation is counter-clockwise from initial side to terminal side, we say that the angle is positive; when the rotation is clockwise, we say the angle is negative.
