Maths KS2: Using timetables and the 24 hour clock
Pizza delivery boy Ambrose’s boss wants him to fill in a timetable so that he knows how long each journey takes.
The pizza parlour clock reads quarter past four for the start time but the boss gives Ambrose a phone that reads 16:15.
Ambrose makes four deliveries, counting on and filling in part of the timetable. Will he get to all four places before the pizzas get cold?
This is from the series: Let's Do Maths
At the end of the clip, students could be given a copy of Ambrose's timetable and the details he has managed to fill in so far.
Students could complete his timetable and work out if he managed to deliver all the pizzas in time.
Students could create their own timetable for a day out including start and finish times and durations.
They could explore other timetables such as train, bus or cinema timetables to plan their excursions.
Students could also consider such things as walking times between places.
To provide an additional challenge, students could be set a budget for their day out.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Maths at KS2 in England and Wales, Second Level in Scotland and KS1 and KS2 in Northern Ireland.
