Be able to:
Determine elevation using a map
Example- Foursquare Church
Use a compass to determine bearing
Example- bearing from LAHS to Mazepa
Use a map scale to determine distance between 2 points on a map (for example if a scale
is 1:24,000 and you measure 6 inches between 2 points, how many miles is that?
Use Latitude location to determine distance from Equator
Lewisburg is located at about 41 degrees North Latitude.
Distance to equator?
To North Pole?

Calculate Percent Error
You estimate a container to have 50ml of water, it actually has 47ml
