TITLE : Unit 03: Time to the Hour SUGGESTED DURATION : 5 days

Unit Overview

Introduction
This unit bundles student expectations that address telling time to the hour using analog and digital clocks. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, a problem-solving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this Unit
Students have had no experience with telling time according to the Kindergarten standards.

During this Unit
Students are introduced to the measurement attribute of time and determine time to the hour using both analog and digital clocks. Students explore the parts of an analog clock, including the hour hand, the minute hand, the speed of the hands, the face of the clock as a circular number line, and what the minute hand means when pointing “exactly” to the 12. Students explore the parts of a digital clock, including the number to the left of the colon, the number right of the colon, and the purpose of the colon. Students experience reading, writing, and stating time in words as “o’clock” as well as reading and writing time numerically as “:00”. Students examine the relationship between time displayed on an analog clock and the same time displayed on a digital clock.

After this Unit
In Unit 12, students will revisit telling time to the hour and examine time to the half hour on both analog and digital clocks. Students will explore the relationship between fractions and time to the half hour, including associating the fractional language of time such as “one-thirty is half past one.”

Additional Notes
In Grade 1, telling time to the hour using analog and digital clocks is identified as a Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points (TxRCFP): Grade Level Connection which reinforces previous learning and/or provides development for future learning. This unit is supporting the development of the Texas College and Career Readiness Standards (TxCCRS): IV.A. Measurement Reasoning – Measurement involving physical and natural attributes, IX. Communication and Representation, and X. Connections.

Research
According to Van de Walle (2006), “Learning to tell time has little to do with time measurement and more to do with the skills of learning to read a dial-type instrument” (p. 243). Sherman, Richardson, and Yard (2009) also discuss the challenge students face in learning to tell time due to the abstract nature of this measurement attribute and the need to work with indirect measurement scales. They conclude that students must be given numerous hands-on opportunities to practice reading clocks as they begin to understand the relationship between the hands and the numerals on a clock.
