# Location

This week for Miss White maths we learned about how to find and describe the location of something on a map using grid references.

What is a grid? A grid is a map put into squares. Grid references are used to help find things. This used to be used for maps to help people travel to different areas. We always say the X axis first and Y axis next.

First, we had to discuss in Miss White whole group, what location is. Location is an actual place or natural setting in which a film or broadcast is made, as distinct from a simulation in a studio.

Next, we had to make a copy of a google slide that is about auckland zoo. In the google slide we had to have a look at the questions and answer them also by using what are some places you can see, what are their coordinates, and how do we read coordinates. How to read coordinates is that you have to use the 1-10 numbers on the left side and the letters 1-12 on the bottom. For example: your looking for a animal in the zoo and you can’t found it so you use the map to find it. It would be B5.

Lastly, we had to be in pairs and make another copy of a document to draw a map and get your partner to find objects/places.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at making a copy of the task. I need to improve on adding more details into the document.
