    To get from math to history, you go 1 block south and 4 blocks west. 

     

    When you leave history, you first go 3 blocks east, reversing the last 3 blocks you earlier traveled westward. So at that point you're 1 block south and 1 block west of the math building. 

     

    The chemistry building is another block south, so it's 2 blocks south and 1 block west of the math building.
