These pages contain some resources for teaching how to tell the time on an analogue clock. To access the applets only click here.

Telling the time on an analogue clock creates the mathematical landscape that learners can build on to establish an understanding of angles, factors, fractions, polygons and all things related to circles such as circle geometry and circular functions. From the secondary school math teacher’s perspective, familiarity with the analogue clock is tremendously valuable.

A particularly useful tool is the applet below created by Duane Habecker.
