Review

An hour has 60 minutes.

15 minutes make a quarter hour.

For 15 minutes after an hour we can say quarter past the hour.

4. For 45 minutes after an hour we can say quarter till the next hour.

5. For 30 minutes after an hour we can say half past the hour.

6. A circle has 360Â°.

7. Each minute on a clock represents 6Â° on the circumference of a circle.

8. A triangle has three sides.

9. A right triangle has one 90Â° angle.

10. An isosceles triangle has two equal sides and two equal angles.

11. An equilateral triangle has three equal sides and three 60Â° angles.

12. Geometry is everywhere. Just look for it!
