In Mathematics, the students in Five White are learning about time. Without time we wouldn’t be able to have meetings, meet up with friends or even organise a party!
Take a look at the following time facts.
60 seconds = 1 minute
30 minutes = half an hour
60 minutes = 1 hour
24 hours = 1 day
7 days = 1 week
14 days (2 weeks) = 1 fortnight
28-31 days = 1 month
12 months = 1 year
365 days = 1 year
366 days = 1 leap year
10 years = 1 decade
Every four years = a leap year
100 years = 1 century
Can you think of examples of when the above time facts are important?
For example: we need to know when a year has passed to know how old we are!
