#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we'll be looking at some timetables and finding out what the information included is telling us.

Let's have a think about when we might use a timetable:

- to find out when we can get a bus, train, aeroplane to go somewhere.  Also, to find out what time we will arrive at a destination.

- we often have a timetable at school to let us know what time each lesson is and when it's time for lunch!

- at cinemas so we know what films are on and when they start.

These are just a few examples - you might be able to think of lots more.

Let's have a look at an example.

Here is a bus timetable showing the times that buses leave the bus stops on their route.

Example 1

What time does bus B leave Didcot?

If we look where bus B and Didcot meet, we can see that the time is 10:45.

Example 2

How long does it take for bus E to travel from Oxford to Didcot?

First, find bus E, then look at the time between Oxford (11:00) and Didot (11:30)

The difference is 30 minutes.

It takes 30 minutes for bus E to travel from Oxford to Didcot.

Top Tip:

Read the question and the information in the table carefully.
