Calculating with Time

Submitted by Karen Foot on Tue, 2015-03-03 17:17

Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

I wanted to create a resource to enable my students to practise calculating with time.

Most of the students work in Wiltshire, but live in Yorkshire, so I thought it would be fun if they explored different travel methods to Yorkshire to see which was the fastest. The travel distances and times were from the Internet and I created this resource differentiated for Levels 1 and 2.

Editor’s note
Clever differentiation.

Murder at the Grange parts 2 and 3

Submitted by Ruth Read on Fri, 2013-12-06 09:05

Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

This is an adaptation of Murder at the Grange, which my students have always enjoyed.

I wanted to extend the work on calculating with time, so learners have to use and extend timetables and calculate multi-stage journey times. I also thought it would be good to have some female characters!

There’s a version for L1-2 and one for E2-3, although there is some overlap. In the L1-2 version I have used 24-hour times.
