In this middle school Math 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!
