How to tell time

How to Tell Time

Ms. Leonard’s Class

October 27, 2009


What a clock looks like

What a Clock Looks Like

  • 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.


What do the numerals mean

What Do the Numerals Mean?

  • 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.


Past or to the hour

Past or to the 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).


How the clock works

How the Clock Works

  • 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

How the Clock Works Continued

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

Lets Look at Some Examples…

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.

Examples Cont.

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.


Examples cont2

Examples Cont.

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.


Final example

Final Example

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.
