Learning About Time

Last week our maths topic was time.

Our learning intentions focussed on:

  • Identifying times on analogue and digital clocks
  • Recognising times that are important to us
  • Using 12 hour and 24 hour time
  • Calculating elapsed time.

We used this interactive clock to practise telling the time.

Everyone enjoyed matching the digital and analogue times with these Stop the Clock games.

In this game, players need to match the digital clock with the time displayed.

For one task, students viewed the Geelong to Melbourne VLine train timetable on their netbooks. They had to calculate the elapsed time for distances travelled between a variety of train stations.
