Making Math Meaningful: Time


Time is often one of the most tricky concepts for students to master, especially elapsed time (the duration of time between activities). While most number systems students are familiar with are base 10, time is base 60. Analog clocks help to reinforce this distinction, where digital ones look and feel more like our base 10 system. However, there are many ways parents and families can support the development of these concepts. Here are a few to implement in your homes. As always, these are just general recommendations for grade level bands- feel free to level up or down as needed!
