Bearings and Map Scales

These 9 worksheets provide an introduction to measuring and drawing three figure bearings beginning by looking at the 8 points of the compass. The practical uses of bearings in the real world are emphasised by requiring students to work through word problems with varying levels of support.

There is a lot of opportunity for practising measuring and drawing angles up to 360°. Revise angle vocabulary and apply basic angle facts.

As an additional feature sone of the examples also require diagrams to be measured so the map scale can be used to find the actual real life distance.
