This numeracy unit addresses telling time to the minute, the relationship between units of time, converting between units of time and using ‘am’ and ‘pm’ notation to solve simple time problems.
It consists of 9 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.
The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.
An assessment task for monitoring student understanding of the unit objectives is included and will require an additional lesson.
