Online Math Activity - Converting Units of Time

Get ready to practice converting units of time with your third grade class! Students will practice converting days to weeks, hours to days, minutes to hours, and so on in this digital math game. Here are a few sample math questions your students may be expected to answer in this telling time activity:

  • "Drag and drop the symbol that makes the number sentence true. 300 minutes is [greater than, less than, or equal to] 3 hours."
  • "Dayton's baby sister is six weeks old. How many days are in six weeks?"
  • "Convert from minutes to hours. [Blank] minutes equals 9 hours."
  • "How many minutes are in 2 hours?"
  • "Cyrus slept for eight hours last night. How many minutes are in eight hours?"

As students work their way through the math activity, they can count on plenty of handy features to help them make the most out of their math practice session:

  • Hint Button - When children get stuck on a question and need a little help, they can click on the Hint Button. The hint consists of a written or pictorial clue that will point children in the right direction without giving away the answer.
  • Explanation Page - Students are bound to get an answer wrong every now and then. When they do, a detailed explanation page pops up on the practice screen to show them the correct answer, accompanied by an easy-to-understand explanation to help them learn from mistakes.
  • Progress-Tracker - Students can check out the progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of their practice screen to see how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math activity.
  • Score-Tracker - Children can view the score-tracker beneath the progress-tracker to see how many points they have earned for correct solutions.
  • Speaker Icon - To hear the math question read out loud in a clear voice, students can click on the speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen. This feature is a great option for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.

All of these features have been carefully designed to help your third grade students achieve more in their online math practice.
