Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning to tell the time using clocks with Roman Numerals. 

 

Here are two clocks.

 

clock          clock

 

One has normal numbers, the other has Roman Numerals.

They both show the same time.

 

The long blue hand is pointing close to the 9 or IX, which is halfway round the clock, so the time will be:

Quarter to

or

__:45

 

The short red hand is pointing close to the or the IV, so the time is:

Quarter to four

or 

3:45

 

Let's try an example question together.

 

Example

What time does this clock show?

clock                    clock

Answer

The long blue hand is pointing to the 3 or III, which is a quarter of the way round the clock, so the time will be:

Quarter-past

or

__:15.

 

The short red hand is pointing halfway between the and the 3 or the II and the III, so the time is:

Quarter-past two

or 

2:15

 

Now you've seen Roman numeral clocks in action, it's time to try out your skills on some questions.
