In my last post I describe how we could get information about distances from a map using a scale. In this post we will look at how we can use the idea of a scale to draw a map of our own
Think of the following question : Source, my own imagination but I have seen similar questions in Exam papers
My local park is 150m long and 120m wide. We need to plan the park to have one football pitch (100m by 60m), a play area for younger children (20m by 20m) and places to plant 5 trees. Each tree should be at least 10m from the edge of the park and 20m from the football pitch. There should be 10m at least between each item.
We are given a sheet of paper measuring 25cm by 20cm.
See if you can have a go. The answer will be posted tomorrow.
