Time management is critical to students' college- and career-readiness and future workplace success. This lesson introduces important mathematical building blocks of conversion in a practical, student-relevant manner.
At the end of this lesson, students will be able to:
demonstrate proficiency in converting units of measure via time (hours, minutes, seconds)
create a time management plan for themselves with time quantities expressed in hours, minutes, and seconds
Student Target
"I can convert time among hours, minutes, and seconds to create a time management plan for my success."
CCR Focus Standards
Number and Ratios - Level C
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. [NOTE: A “standard algorithm” might be any accepted algorithm that fits the experience and needs of the students.]
Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.
Supporting Standards
Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
