# Topic 11 Year 8 Mathematics

 Mathematics Topic Bearings No of lessons 8 When is it happening Term 3 Year 8 What will students learn The introduction of bearings is another chance to apply and practice concepts involving angles that have been taught in year 7. The first part of this unit introduces the conventions for measuring, drawing and recording bearings. Once these conventions have been established, students then engage with a series of problems involving the angles rules that have been introduced up to this point. The problems that students encounter in these lessons also provide an opportunity to practice applying the conventions for rounding and applying scales when measuring lengths. Key Knowledge that students should know at the end of 'Topic' This is the knowledge that students will meet for the first time in this topic Introduce conventions for drawing and measuring bearings • Plot and measure the position of an object on a given bearing and distance from a specified point • Solve problems involving bearings using angle rules from previous units This is knowledge that students may have met before but will need to deepen their understanding Review angles including angles in parallel and perpendicular lines. Key Skills that students should be able to demonstrate at the end of 'Topic' This is the skills  that students will meet for the first time in this topic using a protractor This is skills that students may have met before but will need to develop Drawing a reflex angle Key vocabulary that students should know and understand Three figure bearing, north line, bearing The Big Question What are bearings? Key questions that students should be able to answer at the end of the 'Topic' Where are bearings measured from? How do I find bearings? Can I measure bearings? Can I use isometric paper to measure bearings?
