Maths

Maths WALA hours, minutes and seconds.

During this lesson you will be applying lots of skills you have previously been taught throughout this academic year, such as calculating fractions of amounts, using known multiplication facts and making values ten times bigger using Place Value.

Key information to support you.

60 minutes = 1 hour

30 minutes = half an hour OR 1/2 an hour OR 0.5 of an hour THEY ARE ALL EQUIVALENT TO 30 MINUTES

15 minutes = quarter of an hour OR 1/4 of an hour OR 0.25 of an hour THEY ARE ALL EQUIVALENT TO 15 MINUTES

If you are asked to find 1/5 of an hour (60 minutes) then you must divide 60 by the denominator and then multiply your answer by the numerator.

60 minutes ÷ 5 = 12 minutes

12 minutes x 1 = 12 minutes

therefore 1/5 of 60 minutes = 12 minutes
