Later the compass rose was applied to our problem set, where we had to determine a distance from two points and acquire the true and magnetic bearings that go along with it. Lastly, we applied all of the knowledge above into common scenarios where navigation would be necessary. Furthermore, time zones were insinuated to help us understand the changes in hemispheres and around the globe.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
