Section C: Practice Problems Time on the Clock
In this section, we learned to read clocks to tell and write time to the nearest 5 minutes. By counting by 5 starting at the number 1, we can tell the time in hours and minutes. We can also use half past, quarter past, or quarter till to tell time when the minute hand is in certain positions. To show the time of day, we use a.m. and p.m. when we tell and write time.
Problem 1 (Lesson 11)
Write the time shown on the clocks using the words half past, quarter past, or quarter till.
Draw hands on the clock face to show half past 5.
