Azimuth and Distance Module

Hello Everyone!,

About the Project

This project is geared more for the high school level math student.

The premise of the project is that of introduction and practice but in a way that subtly provides the student with a potential real-world scenario. I mean… Have you ever heard or asked the question yourself… “Why do I have to learn this? Where could I ever use this?” This module will apply the Pythagorean Theorem as a means of calculating the straight line distance between two points on a map and will use a trigonometric function called the Tangent as a way of calculating the degree of travel known as the azimuth. Basic land navigation courses might require you to determine the straight line walking distance to each of the waypoints on your route and what azimuth you would need to follow with your compass.
