Graduation RiddleScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
I am a unit of measurement. I am rather confused however, because I am used to measure different things. Physicists use me to measure temperature. In that case, I come in 3 different types, named after a German, A British lord, and a Swedish astronomer. In America, they prefer one type, but in Europe they like another. Scientists don't particularly like either of these. In Geography, I am divided into minutes, but I am not used to measure time. And just for good measure, I am not used at all by mathematicians who like to use Calculus. What am I?
HintIf you get the answer to this riddle, you will graduate.

Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin for temperature and
1/360 of a revolution in angular measure, but in Calculus, radian measure is used for angles.
