Unit 2, Lesson 4# Solve problems involving time intervals by counting backward and forward using number lines and clocks

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students begin measuring time intervals in minutes within 1 hour to solve word problems. They reinforce their understanding of time as a continuous unit of measurement by counting forward and backward using the number line and the clock. For example, they might solve problems such as, "Beth leaves her house at 8:05 a.m. and arrives at school at 8:27 a.m. How many minutes does Beth spend traveling to school?"
