Calendar dates

In this lesson, we will learn:

  • How to write calendar dates in written form (words, ordinals, and numbers)
  • How to write calendar dates in metric notation (numbers only, in the format: yyyy/mm/dd)
  • Writing calendar dates using numbers in a variety of formats (mm/dd/yyyy OR mm/dd/yy OR dd/mm/yy)

Notes:

  • Calendars and dates keep track of time! A date is a reference to a specific day in time, and we can tell how much time passes between two dates.
    • Calendar dates use the units of time for: month, day, and year
Basics of Coordinate Plane

  • The written form of a calendar date is in the format: [month] [day]ordinal, [year]
    • Ex. December 25th, 2020
Basics of Coordinate Plane

  • The metric notation of a calendar date is in the order: year / month / date
    • i.e. yyyy / mm / dd (sometimes it is seen with dashes or spaces instead)
    • this orders the time units from longest to shortest durations
    • Ex. 2020 / 12 / 25 is December 25th, 2020
Basics of Coordinate Plane
    • *A special exception is that February has 29 days (instead of 28 days) during a leap year (every 4 years).

  • Dates in metric notation are used often when filling in paperwork!
    • There are other formats of writing out the date using numbers:
      • mm/dd/yyyy (different order)
      • mm/dd/yy (only the last 2 digits of the year)
      • dd/mm/yy (different order)
