Today we are consolidating our learning from Wednesday and beginning to solve more problems involving converting times.

The tutorial recaps how to convert between minutes and hours and then how to solve problems using these skills. 



 Just to let you know. The beginning of the video is a recap of converting minutes and hours. If you are confident with this then move the video to 9 minutes 30 seconds. I will then make it clear where to play and stop the video for each challenge.

Next you can choose your challenge below:

Green- converting between minutes and hours and solving problems

Orange- converting between minutes and seconds involving fractions and solving problems

Red- converting between minutes and seconds involving fractions and solving problems involving decimals

Extension: Reasoning problems involving converting between units of time
