Navigation Tables

Tables designed for solving common Time-Speed-Distance navigation problems are used by many teams to stay on-time. You can

- design your own tables, using a spreadsheet or computer program,
- purchase a book of tables listed in the Bibliography, or
- go to the pages listed below and print the ones you want on your own printer.

- Experiment with the font settings in your browser before printing. Many browsers use the font you use to view pages to control the size of the font used to print pages.
- Several versions of each table are provided: plain text vs Netscape table-based, and versions with different spacing. Try printing a sample of each of the versions of a simple table before commiting to printing all the tables.
- The Netscape versions of the tables adjust their size as you change the width of your browser window. Just resize you browser till you get a format you like.
- If you
*really*want to reformat the table and are handy with HTML, you can download the HTML source, edit it on your machine, and view the modified page locally.

Formula: ___ seconds x 1.6666 => cents

Formula: cents x 0.60 => seconds

Formula: 60 ------- => Rate Speed

- Look up the time to cover the whole miles in the table
- Look up the time to cover the tenths,
*moving the decimal place one position to the left* - Look up the time to cover the hundredths, moving the decimal place
*two*positions to the left - Add the three numbers together to get the perfect time

2 . 7 3 v v v | | | 3.077 Time to cover 2 miles <----------- / / at 39 MPH / / + 1.077 Time to cover 7 miles is 10.77, <----- / then move decimal 1 place / + 0.046 Time to cover 3 miles is 4.61, <------- then move decimal 2 places ------ 4.200 = Time to cover 2.73 miles at 39 MPH.This table can be also be used for kilometers and kph.

Formula: DISTANCE-in-miles x 60 ---------------------- => TIME-in-minutes SPEED-in-mphNote: You may want to switch your printer to Landscape mode to print these tables.
