A bearing is an angle, measured clockwise from the north direction. Bearings are often used to describe direction (North, East, South, West), and a real-life example of this is ships using bearings to navigate around the ocean. In this lesson students will learn how to describe and draw bearings and finally use their knowledge of bearing to find missing angles.
