In this 11-plus Maths quiz on position you'll get a chance to see what you remember about the coordinate plane and the compass. Did you know that the coordinate plane is also called the Cartesian plane?
Did you know that map directions are given using bearings? Some people use a 'thumb compass' when reading maps. These are very basic compasses that normally only show magnetic north. They are used in orienteering. But if a compass is held over a map, how can people read what is underneath the map? Can you figure it out? It's easy really - the compasses are transparent so that the map-readers can see right through!
There are lots of other types of compasses too, but let's concentrate on this quiz for now and see if you can get all ten questions correct. Good luck!
