# Learn to read, tell the time and write the time from analogue  (Page 4/4)

 Page 4 / 4

When we add or subtract time, remember that we are working with hours, minutes and seconds.

60 seconds = 1 minute

60 minutes = 1 hour

Example: 1h 45min.+ 2h 36min. You will think of your own way to do this.

One way might be:

1h 45min. +2h 36min. = 3h 81min. (Notice: there is 1h hidden in those minutes.)

= 4h 21min.

7.1 53 min. and 48 sec. + 14 min. and 34 sec

7.2 14 h 25 min. － 7 h 36 min.

Activity 4:

To describe and illustrate ways of measuring and representing time in different cultures throughout history [LO 4.4]

ASSIGNMENT (RESEARCH-BASED)

Your educator will help you to find reference books or take you to the library when you need information in this Assignment.

People in the Ancient World did not have clocks and watches as we know them, but they did try to measure time. Some of their instruments for measuring time included: a sun dial; a water clock; a candle clock; burning oil and an hour-glass. Some of them were not very accurate.

2. Look up information in reference books or on the computer to find out what these instruments looked like and how they worked. Also try to find out which people used them and where they lived.

3. Choose four of the instruments named in number 1. Draw them and label each drawing clearly.

4. Explain how any two of them worked.

5. Make either a water clock or a candle clock (or one of the others) and show it to the class. Explain to the class how it works.

6. In the table below write down which people used each of the clocks you have drawn and where they lived:

 Name of clock People who used it Where they lived

7. Explain why these ancient instruments were not always very accurate. Write your answer below.

8. Try to think of a link between one of them and a modern instrument which we use. Write down your answer .

## Assessment

 LO 4 measurementThe learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts. We know this when the learner: 4.1 reads, tells and writes analogue, digital and 24-hour time to at least the nearest minute and second; 4.2 solves problems involving calculation and conversion between appropriate time units including seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years; 4.3 uses time-measuring instruments to appropriate levels of precision, including watches and clocks; 4.4 describes and illustrates ways of measuring and representing time in different cultures throughout history; 4.5 estimates, measures, records, compares and orders two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using S.I. units with appropriate precision for: mass using grams (g) and kilograms (kg); capacity using millilitres (ml) and litres (l); length using millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) and kilometres (km); 4.6 solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating appropriate context for Technology and Natural Sciences; 4.7 uses appropriate measuring instruments (with understanding of their limitations) to appropriate levels of precision including: bathroom scales, kitchen scales and balances to measure mass; measuring jugs to measure capacity; rulers, metre sticks, tape measures and trundle wheels to measure length; 4.8 investigates and approximates (alone and/or as a member of a group or team): perimeter, using rulers or measuring tapes.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
