The lesson starts with covering basic prerequisite clock skills such as counting the minutes by 5 around the clock and counting the quarter hours. Students are encouraged to clap out the pattern of 15, 30, 45, 60 for the quarter hours and also move the hands on a clock as they say the pattern. Students then practice adding quarter hours. Next, they practice multiplying and dividing by 60 in advance to learning the strategy to convert minutes to hours. Step-by-step instruction and practice follow. The lesson concludes with several problem-solving activities. Circling back to the beginning, the movie runtimes are converted to solve the problem of picking a movie that is less than two hours.
