    For this section, you will need the following materials:

    ● Protractor, a round protractor is preferred.

    ● Pencil.

    Let’s first practice drawing strike and dip symbols.

    1. Draw the map symbol for a rock unit having a strike and dip of N65E, 30 SE.
    2. Draw the map symbol for a rock unit having a strike and dip of N80W, 55 NE.
    3. Draw the map symbol for a rock unit having a strike and dip of 125°, 25 NW.
    4. Draw the map symbol for a rock unit having a strike and dip of 235°, 30 SE.
