1 Navigation I

2 Nav 1_1: Maps, Scale and Distance

3 Learning Intention: To familiarise you with the main features of an Ordnance Survey map.

4 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone should be able to: Explain the purpose of a map; Describe the basic layout and features of an Ordnance Survey map; Show which way is North on an OS Map; Calculate distances on a 1:50 000 OS map. Some of you may be able to: Describe the difference between True North, Grid North and Magnetic North.

5 Activities: 1.Brainstorm: What is a map? 2.Introduction to the 1:50k Landranger 3.Scale & Calculating Distances

6 Nav 1_2: OS Map Symbols

7 Learning Intention: To familiarise you with the main OS map symbols relevant to mountain navigation.

8 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone should be able to: Locate and use the key panel on an OS map; Identify 12-24 OS map symbols relevant to mountain navigation. Some of you may be able to: Identify 25+ OS map symbols relevant to mountain navigation.

9 Activities: 1.Presentation. What are map symbols for? 2.Symbol Recognition 3.Feedback & Key Points

10 Nav 1_3: Grid References

11 Learning Intention: To enable you to use 6-figure grid references to locate and give the location of features on an OS map.

12 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone should be able to: Locate a point on an OS map using a 6-figure grip reference; Give the location of a point on an OS map using a 6-figure grid reference. Some of you may be able to: Explain the OS National Grid system and find the 2-letter code for a map section.

13 Activities: 1.Presentation: Grid References. 2.Group task, Handbook p. 21 3.Feedback & Key Points

14 Nav 1_4: Contours

15 Learning Intention: To enable you to understand and interpret contour lines on an OS map.

16 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone should be able to: Identify and state the purpose of contour lines on an OS map; Use contour lines to calculate the height of any given point. Some of you may be able to: Interpret the profile of a contoured feature and identify common geographical features from their contours/profiles.

17 Activities: 1.Presentation/Discussion: Hills of Braemar 2.Calculating Heights 3.Contour Interpretation

18 Nav 1_5: Basic Compass Skills

19 Learning Intention: To enable you to use a Silva Mk 4 compass to aid map navigation.

20 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone should be able to: Describe the key features of a Silva Mk. 4 compass; Use a compass to set a map to Magnetic North. Some of you may be able to: Describe common problems when using a compass.

21 Activities: 1.IMPORTANT REMINDER 2.Presentation: Key Features of the Silva Mk. 4 Compass 3.Practical: Which way is North? 4.Practical: Setting a map

22 Nav 1_6: Assessment

23 Learning Intention: To enable you to demonstrate your competence in basic map & compass skills.

24 Success Criteria: By the end of this session everyone MUST be able to: Use a compass to set a map to Magnetic North; Locate a point on an OS map using a 6-figure grid reference; Give the location of a point on an OS map using a 6-figure grid reference; Use your understanding of maps, symbols and contours to describe a route between two points on an OS map.

25 Activities: 1.Instructions 2.Individual Task 3.Group Task
