Navigating Our World
Head over to Dynamic Earth Online to have a go at our brand new online workshop: Navigating Our World.
Looking at the maths in the world around us, this workshop will cover how we navigate around the world, both historically and in modern times!
It features topic videos and activity resources to have a go at yourself in the classroom or at home, requiring no specialist equipment beyond a compass and a tape measure!
We look at what navigation is, latitude & longitude, what Edinburgh's One O'clock Gun is for, how SatNavs work, and a timeline of navigation from pre-history to now!
Designed to complement aspects of the Curriculum for Excellence in maths, science (physics), and geography, or to be used in informal education settings as activities to reinforce learning, workshop's educators' page has a full list of curriculum links.
