Alanna and Kevin enter the noisy workshop and find an excited, hammer-waving Uncle Norm. He’s tinkering with what could be a lopsided clock covered with weird wires and gizmos. Secretive at first, he finally admits that his “hush hush” invention is a time machine with a practical purpose: even with several alarm clocks, he’s always late, especially in the morning. A machine that goes back in time may be his only way to finally get to those early appointments! Understanding more about “time management” machines ─ otherwise known as clocks ─ could help. Kevin knows someone who schedules lots of things everyday – a radio DJ. “This ya gottasee!”
The Gist: In this episode, both analogue and digital clocks are introduced as instruments for measuring time; and minutes and fractions of the hour are introduced as units for describing measurements of time. In the curriculum, children are asked to tell and write time to the quarter-hour, using demonstration digital and analogue clocks (e.g. “My clock shows the time recess will start [10:00], and my friend’s clock shows the time recess will end [10:15].”). Children are also required to read time using analogue clocks, to the nearest five minutes, use digital clocks (e.g., 1:23 means twenty-three minutes after one o’clock), and represent time in 12-hour notation.
