SUMMARY OF A PAPER ON THE PLACE OF NAVIGATION IN THE COLLEGE CURRICULUM

Bart J. Bok

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: A general one-term course in navigation should be a part of the regular offerings in every liberal arts college. In a typical thireen-week course (with three weekly lectures of one hour each), the first six weeks can be devoted effectively to an introduction to marine navigation (aids to navigation, the compass, piloting, dead reckoning, tides and currents), the next four weeks to celestial navigation (celestial sphere, noon sight, line of position methods), and the final three weeks to aerial navigation (pilotage, dead reckoning, wind problems, and computers).
