Year 7 maths students are studying maps, scale and bearings over the next couple of weeks. They have created their own map of Treasure Island, showing a clear and accurate compass rose and realistic scale. Next they will write their own directions from the point of disembarking on the island to where the treasure is buried, using distance and true bearings. Students will be assessed using a rubric, created using Rubistar.
