Martin Van Buren High School

Aim: How do we determine the time at different cities?
• Do Now: In your notes, explain why our local time is different in other parts of the world.
• HW: Read and be familiar with pages 32-35 in your UPCO book.
Question-
• Who can tell me the current time in Chicago, Illinois?
• Miami, Florida?
• Houston, Texas?
• Los Angeles, California?
• Honolulu, Hawaii?
• London, England?
How do we determine the different times around the world?
• If you have the following:
• Green review book-read pages 13-14- solar time and clock time
• Answer the following in your notes:
• What is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)?
• How many degrees does the Earth rotate per hour?
• How is this determined?
Solar time- the time of day at a specific longitude.
• You can find your local time based on the current solar time at Greenwich, England (GMT).
• Any location west of the Prime Meridian (GMT or UTC) is behind.
• Any location east of the Prime Meridian (GMT or UTC) is ahead.
• 360 degrees/24 hours=?
• Now you try to find the times at different cities.
• Lines of longitude are 15 degrees apart.
