Lesson List


 

Learn to tell how much time has passed (elapsed) in minutes.

Look at the two clocks below.

Clock.gif (2888 bytes)

The clock above reads 8:15.

Clock.gif (3036 bytes)

The clock above reads 8:30.

 

The difference between 8:15 and 8:30 is 15 minutes.

From 8:15 to 8:30 is 15 minutes because 30 -15 = 15.  Because the hours are the same, you only need to subtract the minutes to find the difference.

 

Look at the two clocks below.

Clock.gif (5915 bytes)

The clock above reads 1:24.

Clock.gif (5855 bytes)

The clock above reads 1:49.

 

To find the difference (the minutes that passed) between 1:49 and 1:24 you need to subtract the minutes.

49 - 24 = 25.

There is a 25 minute difference between 1:24 and 1:49.

 

When the hours are different, you need to subtract and add.  Look at the clocks below.

Clock.gif (5995 bytes)

The clock above reads 4:33.

Clock.gif (5896 bytes)

The clock above reads 5:11.

 

You will need to do this problem in two steps.

First, find how many minutes it is until 5:00.  To do this, subtract 33 minutes from 60 minutes.

60 - 33 = 27.

Next, add the 11 minutes past 5:00.  This is the difference between 5:00 and 5:11.

27 + 11 = 38

The difference between 4:33 and 5:11 is 38 minutes.

 

Complete the problems below.
