A compass (so called by people in the USA, Canada, Australia, India, some people in the UK) or pair of compasses (so called by some people in the UK) is a technical drawing instrument that can be used for inscribing circles or arcs. They can also be used as a tool to measure distances, in particular on maps. Compasses can be used for mathematics, drafting, navigation, and other purposes.

Compasses are usually made of metal, and consist of two parts connected by a hinge which can be adjusted. Typically one part has a spike at its end, and the other part a pencil, or sometimes a pen. Circles can be made by fastening one leg of the compasses into the paper with the spike, putting the pencil on the paper, and moving the pencil around while keeping the hinge on the same angle. The radius of the circle can be adjusted by changing the angle of the hinge.

I was always taught that the correct term was ‘a pair of compasses’ as opposed to a ‘compass’ which shows you the direction of North.
