#TBT: Bearings and the RAF

In this bearings activity students work as the Operations Team for a Royal Air Force Squadron. They are presented with a series of imaginary scenarios, and have to plan and review routes for a number of aircraft facing different crises.

Defence Dynamics is a collection of resources from the Ministry of Defence (MOD), a range of lessons that draw on exciting and interesting examples of the MOD's work.

The lesson aims to help the development of a range of different skills such as varying scale maps, distances, bearings and aircraft speeds. Other resources in the series cover construction, graphs, reasoning and proof, sampling, data and bias and checking strategies.
