In constructions and scale drawings students learn how to construct triangles and elevation drawings to scale. As learning progresses they explore how to bisect lines and angles as in introduction to Constructing Loci at GCSE. Later, students solve problems involving bearings using scale drawings. This topic takes place in Term 5 of Year 8.
