Bearings are a very special and useful case of angles. You will remember that an angle is formed when two lines intersect – in bearings, one of those lines is always a line pointing to north. The second line points to an object, or in the direction we want to travel. Bearings are always measured clockwise starting from north, and stated as a 3-digit number. Check out how well you know your bearing facts in this GCSE Maths quiz.

Bearings have been an essential aid to navigation for many hundreds of years, ever since the discovery of the magnetic compass. Early compasses were based around the four cardinal points: north, south, east and west. Further divisions between each of these form the ordinal directions, such as southwest. You need to know where each of the compass points are, which mnemonic do you use? Popular ones include ‘Never Eat Sea Weed’ and ‘Naughty Elephants Squirt Water’.
