###### Topic Notes

In this lesson, we will learn:

- A review on saying times of the exact hours (o’clock) and parts of the days (in the morning, afternoon, evening or at night)
- How to say the time by: naming the number of hours and minutes (reading left to right), naming the minutes after the hour, or naming the minutes until the next hour
- The special ways of saying half and quarter hours: quarter past, quarter to, and half past

__Notes:__- There are
__many ways__to say the**time.** - The simplest way to tell time is when the clock is on an
__exact hour__(i.e. 12:00, 3:00; minute hand is on 12) you can simply call it as the number**o’clock**(ex. 12 o’clock, three o’clock) - We can also say
**AM**and**PM**as the__part of the day__instead: - “in the morning” for 6AM to 11:59AM
- “noon” for 12:00PM
- “in the afternoon” for 12:01PM to 5:00PM
- “in the evening” for 5:01PM to 8:00PM
- “at night” for 8:01PM to 5:59AM
- “midnight” for 12:00AM
- Saying the hour is easy—the focus on the minutes.
**Three**ways to tell time are by writing:
$\qquad \qquad$ 1. # hours # minutes
- Ex. 1:35 can be said as (1) one thirty-five, (2) thirty-five minutes after one, or (3) twenty-five minutes to two
- There are
__special__ways to say**half or quarter hours** - When the minutes are :15 we say “
**quarter after**” the hour - When the minutes are :30 we say “
**half past**” the hour - When the minutes are :45 we say “
**quarter to**” the next hour - Ex. (9:15 is quarter past nine), (6:30 is half past 6), (7:45 is quarter to eight)
- Although there are many ways to tell the time, there is usually one way that is said more commonly than the rest.
- The most common way to tell times is summarized in the figure below for the positions of the minute hand on the clock.
- If the minutes are :01 $\,$→$\,$ :30 it’s common to say the
__minutes after the hour__ - If the minutes are :31 $\,$→$\,$ :59 it’s common to say the
__minutes to the next hour__

$\qquad \qquad$ 2. # minutes after/past the hour

$\qquad \qquad$ 3. # minutes until/to the next hour
