Today we are going to look at another way of telling the time. We have used the analogue clock to tell the time, a digital clock and now we are going to use a 24hr clock. Watch the video below to find out more!
Let’s practise converting 12hour digital time to 24 hour time. Use the PowerPoint to help you work it out. The trick is to add 12hrs on to your digital time to work out what it would be in 24hr time ! Remember, only do this if it is a time that is 1 o’clock in the afternoon or later. It does not work for morning (AM) times these simply stay the same.
Today we are looking at the duration of an event, this means how long something took. For example if I went to bed at 11pm and woke up at 7am I would have got 8hours sleep. So the duration is 8hours. You must count how many hours and minutes have passed since the start time.
Try working out the duration for these:
3pm - 5pm
8am - 11am
4pm - 10pm
9pm - 3am
6pm - 1am
Have a go at estimating how long the duration would be for each of these tasks:
Now put them in order from activities that take the longest in duration to tasks that take the shortest duration.
