Students learn how to draw and measure bearings and how to use the angle properties of parallel lines to calculate back bearings. As learning progresses students are challenged to solve orientating problems using scale drawings.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to measure the bearing from one point to another.
- Most students should be able to create a sketch map and accurate construction to scale using bearings.
- Some students should be able to prove a ‘back bearing’ using the properties of angles in parallel lines.
