Getting your bearings

Year 9 students have been using their feet to improve their understanding of trigonometry.

The students headed to the IGS rooftop with their teacher Cassandra Church, for a lesson on bearings.

Four students stood at North, East, South and West, while the others walked out paths based on bearings provided by their classmates.

Upon returning to the classroom, students found it easier to apply what they had learned and to solve problems using trigonometry and bearings.
