QCE Together Year 12 General Maths: Latitude and Longitude

Latitude and Longitude

The Earth’s surface is divided into parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude. Latitude is the angle north or south of the equator, that runs horizontally across the earth (a helpful tip to remember this is “lat is flat”) and longitude goes from east to east, running vertically across the earth. This post will help you understand answer questions commonly given in the QCE General Maths Course.
