Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to match the times shown on different clock faces.


Clocks have an hour hand and a minute hand (and sometimes a second hand)


clock showing 9.25



The hour hand is shown in red.  It is shorter.

The minute hand is shown in green.  It is longer.


The hour hand uses the numbers shown on the clock face.  

It is pointing to between 9 and 10, so we know it is after 9 o'clock but before 10 o'clock.


The minute hand does not use the numbers on the clock face.  

We must multiply them by 5 to get the minutes.

It is pointing to 5 which is really 5 x 5 = 25 minutes.


So the time shown is    25 minutes past 9 or 9:25
