We experimentally investigate three methods, utilizing different atomic observables and entangled states, to increase the sensitivity of rotation angle measurements beyond the "standard quantum limit" for nonentangled states. All methods use a form of quantum mechanical "squeezing." In a system of two entangled trapped 9Be+ ions we observe a reduction in uncertainty of rotation angle below the standard quantum limit for all three methods including all sources of noise. As an application, we demonstrate an increase in precision of frequency measurement in a Ramsey spectroscopy experiment.
