What is the elapsed time from 11.30pm to 2.08am?
So I begin at 11.30pm —— I JUMP to the nearest hour which is Midnight (+ 30 mins)
I then jump in hour increments towards 2am. (+ 120 mins OR 2 hours). Why? It’s easier to learn to calculate elapsed time when you are on the o’clock!
I am now on 2am. I need to finish at 2.08am. (+ 8 mins).
Ready to solve the problem? Add up all your ‘jumps’ (30 mins + 2 hours + 8 mins = 2 hours and 38 minutes).
Would you calculate the elapsed time for this problem in another way? If so, post your thinking to this page for the problem above!
Here are six problems to complete in your workbook.
3.21am to 5.06am =
12.34pm to 5.19pm =
6.48am to 11.23am =
10.56am to 2.07pm =
10.32pm to 4.18am =
11.58pm to 1.18am =
