AngularJS Angular $scopes


Angular uses a tree of scopes to bind the logic (from controllers, directives, etc) to the view and are the primary mechanism behind change detection in AngularJS. A more detailed reference for scopes can be found at

The root of the tree is accessible as via inject-able service $rootScope. All child $scopes inherit the methods and properties of their parent $scope, allowing children access to methods without the use of Angular Services.
