How to Tell Time

Ms. Leonard’s Class

October 27, 2009

- Clocks have two hands, a big hand and a small hand.
- The big hand tells time in minutes.
- The small hand tells time in hours.

- A clock has twelve numerals, 1-12.
- Each one represents five minutes.
- Twelve numerals x 5 minutes means that there are 60 minutes in one hour.

- If the minute hand is in the red region, it means that time is being told past the hour (the hour just started).
- If the minute hand is in the green region, time is being told to the hour (a new hour is approaching).

- The clock can be split into quarters and halves.
- If the big hand points at the 6, 30 minutes has passed (half of 60).
- If the big hand points at the 3, 15 minutes has passed (half of 30).

30 minutes has passed

15 minutes has passed

- If the big hand is at the 9, 45 minutes has passed (30 minutes + 15 more since it’s another quarter hour).

This youtube clip walks you through how to tell time and has many examples. Check it out!

Example 1:

The big hand is pointing at the 1, meaning 5 minutes has passed. The little hand is on the 12 meaning the hour is 12 o’clock. The time is then 12:05.

Example 2:

The big hand is pointing at the 12 meaning it is on the hour, 0 minutes have passed. The little hand is on the 2, meaning the hour 2 o’clock. The time is 2:00.

Example 3:

The big hand is just about on the 1 meaning a little under 5 minutes has passed. The small hand is on the 5 meaning the hour is 5 o’clock. The time is roughly 5:04.

Example 4:

The big hand is on the 5 meaning that 25 minutes has passed (count by 5’s until you reach numeral 5). The little hand is on 10 meaning the hour is 10 o’clock. The time is 10:25.

Example 5:

The big hand is just a little past the 5 meaning a little more than 25 minutes has passed (count by 5’s until you reach numeral 5). The little hand is on the 9 meaning the hour is 9 o’clock. The time is roughly 9:26.

- M.UN.01.03 Tell time on a twelve-hour clock face to the hour and half-hour.
- M.UN.02.05 Using both A.M. and P.M., tell and write time from the clock face in 5 minute intervals and from digital clocks to the minute; include reading time: 9:15 as nine-fifteen and 9:50 as nine-fifty. Interpret time both as minutes after the hour and minutes before the next hour, e.g., 8:50 as eight-fifty and ten to nine. Show times by drawing hands on clock face.
