10-6.

To the right is a diagram of the standard compass directions. Another way to describe direction is the use of bearings, which are angles measured clockwise from due north. For example, due west has a bearing of $270°$, and northeast has a bearing of $45°$.

1. What bearing is due east? Draw a diagram to illustrate.

Due North is $0º$.

2. What bearing is southwest? Draw a diagram to illustrate.

3. I head off toward my aunt's house at a direction which is $10°$ east of due south. What is my bearing? Draw a diagram to illustrate.

1. Record the definition of bearing in your Tool Kit along with a few diagrams to illustrate the concept.
