Refactor out `_calculateAngle` method #260
This is a first-timers-only issue. This means we've worked to make it more legible to folks who either haven't contributed to our codebase before, or even folks who haven't contributed to open source before.
If that's you, we're interested in helping you take the first step and can answer questions and help you out as you do. Note that we're especially interested in contributions from people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software!
We know that the process of creating a pull request is the biggest barrier for new contributors. This issue is for you
If you have contributed before, consider leaving this one for someone new, and looking through our general help wanted issues. Thanks!

Hello @sashadev-sky ! Love the description. I am looking to make my first contribution to an open source project and the documentation you've provided on how to do so is really helpful. I feel so overwhelmed whenever I try and contribute but this is clear and concise. Unfortunately... Both first timer issues I've found through this project appear to have been claimed. And this one in particular was assigned, causing me to wonder if there is some list you are pulling from of people who have expressed interest in contributing? Unfortunately I am not from an underrepresented group, but I am still very interested in contributing to open source!
@dannomayer Hey, welcome to PL! You do not have to be from an underrepresented group to join!! Navigating PL takes a minute to get used to so i'll explain a little bit.
The most active repo currently is plots2, which is the source code for PL's website publiclab.org. There we have a pinned issue where we keep a list of users in need of FTOs and assign them out.
The FTO you receive will not necessarily be for plots2. I post a bunch for this repo there. You can feel free to comment there, so we'll add your name to the list and you'll be randomly assigned to an FTO shortly. If you want one in this repo specifically you can skip that and I'm glad to just make you one!
