Given a clock or calendar, students will be able to solve
There are twelve numbers that represent each hour.
There are 60 tick marks that represent each minute.
A clock has two hands, a long hand and a short hand.
The short hand represents the hour, and the long hand
represents the minutes.
For example, 1:30 : the short would be pointing to the one
on the clock and the long hand would be pointing to the 6,
which represents 30 minutes.
When determining minutes, the large numbers represent multiples of
1 = 5 minutes 7 = 35 minutes
2 = 10 minutes 8 = 40 minutes
3 = 15 minutes 9 = 45 minutes
4 = 20 minutes 10 = 50 minutes
5 = 25 minutes 11 = 55 minutes
6 = 30 minutes 12 = 0 minutes, or one hour
For example, if the short hand (hour hand) is on two, and the long
hand (minute hand) is on two, the time is 2:10, because two times
five is ten.
