Basics on the topic Telling Time from Analog and Digital Clocks
Content
What do you learn about telling time from a digital to analog clock?
When telling time from a digital to analog clock, you can use what you know about analog clocks to help you.
First, find the hour on the digital clock. Point the hour hand, or arrow to this number on the analog clock.
Next, identify the minute displayed and count forward that amount on the analog clock. Make sure to put the minute hand, or arrow, where you counted forward.
Finally check the times on both clocks to make sure they match.
Transcript Telling Time from Analog and Digital Clocks
Zuri and Freddie are completing their very first escape room. : "Woah, what's that stone?" They need to match the time from the digital clocks to the analog clocks in order to win the escape room. : "Look Zuri a digital clock!" : "It's the last task for this room, too!" : "Now we just need to put it on the analog clock!" : "Telling Time from Analog and Digital Clocks" Zuri and Freddie have found the time twelve o' five. They need to represent this on the analog clock. When representing time from a digital clock to an analog clock... start by looking at the hour displayed on the clock (...) this is where we need to point the hour hand to. On a digital clock, the hour is displayed on the LEFT of the colon. What hour is displayed on this digital clock? The hour displayed here is twelve. Zuri needs to put the SMALLER hour hand pointing towards twelve. Next, identify the minute. You can find the minute by looking at the digits to the right of the colon on the digital clock. What minute is displayed here? The minute here is five. The minute hand should point to the exact minute. We can count forward by ones to find the exact minute. The final step is to check the digital time to make sure it matches. The hour on the clock is twelve, which matches the hour hand... and the minute on the clock is five, which matches the minute hand : "Woohoo! We got the first clock matched!" : "Woah, look at that Zuri, a key popped out of the clock!" : "I bet if we solve the other clocks we'll get keys and escape and win!" Zuri and Freddie have just found their next clue and need to match it to the analog clock. If their next clue is the digital time three o' seven, how can they match it to the analog clock? Start by looking at the hour displayed on the clock, this is where we need to point the hour hand to. What is the hour displayed on the digital clock? The hour displayed is three. Zuri and Freddie should point their hour hand to the number three. Next, identify the minute. What minute is displayed here? The minute is seven, so, Zuri and Freddie need to count forward to seven on the analog clock. Then we can put the minute arrow there. Finally, they need to check the digital time to make sure that it matches the time on the analog clock. We can do this by making sure the hour and minute are THE SAME on both clocks. : "We got another clock done!" : "I'm starting to feel like we've got a hang of this!" Freddie and Zuri have found the last clue! If their next clock displays the time six ten, how can they display this on their analog clock? The first step is to find the hour and put it on the analog clock. The second step is to identify the minute and count forward to put the minute hand. Finally, the last step is to check to make sure the analog and digital clock match. Before we see if Zuri and Freddie won the escape room, let's summarize. When telling time from analog and digital clocks... start by looking at the hour displayed on the digital clock and point the hour hand to this number. Then, identify the minute displayed and count forward that amount on the analog clock. Put the minute hand where you counted forward. Finally check the times on both clocks to make sure they match. Now, let's see how Zuri and Freddie are doing. : "We did it Freddie, we won!"
Telling Time from Analog and Digital Clocks exercise

What's the time?
HintsRemember the hour hand is the shorter hand and is to the left of the colon.
The minute hand is the longer hand and is to the right of the colon.
You can count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, to find the minutes.
SolutionThe hour to the left of the colon is 7. The shorter (hour) hand is on 7.
The minutes to the right of the colon is 05. The minute (longer) hand is on 1. If you count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, you will get 5.

Which clock shows the correct time?
HintsRemember the hour hand is the shorter hand and is to the left of the colon.
The minute hand is the longer hand and is to the right of the colon.
You can count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, to find the minutes.
SolutionThis was the correct analog clock showing 10:03.
The shorter hour hand is pointing to the 10.
If you count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer minute hand, you will get 3.

What time is it?
HintsRemember the hour hand is the shorter hand and is to the left of the colon.
The minute hand is the longer hand and is to the right of the colon.
You can count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, to find the minutes.
SolutionFor 3:08
 The hour to the left of the colon is 3. The shorter (hour) hand is on 3.
 The minutes to the right of the colon is 08. If you count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, you will get 8.
 The hour to the left of the colon is 8. The shorter (hour) hand is on 8.
 The minutes to the right of the colon is 05. If you count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, you will get 5.

Match the same times.
HintsRemember the hour hand is the shorter hand.
The minute hand is the longer hand.
To find the minutes you need to count by ones.
SolutionFor the first clock:
 The hour to the left of the colon is 4. The shorter (hour) hand is on 4.
 The minutes to the right of the colon is 08. If you count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, you will get 8.
 The hour hand is the shorter hand and is to the left of the colon.
 The minute hand is the longer hand and is to the right of the colon. You can count forward by ones, starting at 12 and ending at the longer hand, to find the minutes.

Label the parts of the clock.
HintsFor a digital clock, the hour is read first.
For an analog clock you need to count by ones or fives to read the minutes.
SolutionThe hour on both clocks is 7 and the minutes on both clocks are 06.
On a digital clock, to the left of the colon shows the hour and to the right of the colon shows the minutes.
On an analog clock, the shorter hand shows the hour and the longer hand shows the minutes.
