Digital Math Game - Elapsed Time

Practice calculating elapsed time with your third grade students in this digital math activity from iKnowIt.com. Children will become familiar with calculating elapsed time as they work through their online math lesson. Here are a few examples of the types of math questions your students may encounter in this telling time game:

  • "Find the elapsed time. Start: 2:30 p.m. End: 3:55 p.m."
  • "Find the elapsed time. Use the number line to help. Start: 8:25 a.m. End: 12:10 p.m."
  • "Pedro starts school at 8:25 a.m. He eats lunch at 11:50 a.m. How long is Pedro at school before he eats lunch?"
  • "Mr. Howard's flight from Kansas City, Missouri to Nashville, Tennessee was 1 hour and 25 minutes. If his flight left Kansas City at 2:40 p.m., what time did Mr. Howard arrive in Nashville?"
  • "Find the elapsed time. Start: 6:20 p.m. End: 9:35 p.m."

Questions in the math activity are presented in multiple-choice format and fill-in-the-blank format. As children work through their math practice session, they can count on plenty of handy tools to help them make the most out of their practice time:

  • Read-Aloud Feature - In the upper-left corner of the practice screen, the speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Children can click on this button to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great feature for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.
  • Progress-Tracker - Opposite the speaker icon, the progress-tracker shows students how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math lesson.
  • Score-Tracker - The score-tracker, located beneath the progress-tracker, displays the number of questions students have answered correctly in the practice session so far.
  • Hint Button - When students get stuck on a question, they can click on the hint button. The hint consists of a written or pictorial clue that points children in the right direction without making the solution too obvious.
  • Explanation Page - When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page pops up on the practice screen, showing them the correct answer, accompanied by an easy-to-understand explanation. This helps students learn from prior mistakes and improve accuracy.
  • Mul>

    All of these features have been carefully developed to help your third grade students achieve more in each math practice session.
