Unit 7 Time to the Hour and Half Hour

In Unit 7 students will:

  •  Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the whole halves, fourths and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of.  Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.

  • How can we tell time to the hour and half-hour on a digital or analog clock?
  • How can we differentiate A.M. from P.M.?
