Product Description
Teaching bearings used to be a nightmare (lessons were spent running from one student to another to measure their bearings to see if they'd been drawn correctly). There had to be an easier way!

So I came up with this task. I now use it every time I teach bearings.

Students are told that new trees, statues, fountains and other features are to be placed in a park. Their job is to pinpoint the precise locations of these using the information given.

1) pinpointing an object's exact location on a map when given its distance and bearing from another point.
The distances are given in metres (1cm = 25m).

2) pinpointing an object's exact location when told its bearing from two other points.

One of the advantages of this task is that you can check students' answers very easily. The map is actually a grid with letters along the bottom and numbers up the side. When students have pinpointed the objects' locations they note the grid references (e.g M7) and record these in the answer tables provided. All answers are included.
