##### Exercise Telling TimeTrain TimetablesMore Time Activities

This is a map of the central part of the London Underground system. The numbers show the number of minutes it would take to walk between two adjacent stations.

 1. How many minutes does it take to walk from Green Park to Picadilly Circus? 2. How many minutes longer does it take to walk from Lancaster Gate to Marble Arch than to walk from Leicester Square to Charing Cross? 3. If I set out from Westminster at 4:15pm and walked directly to St James's Park Tube station, what time would I arrive? 4. If I set out from South Kensington at 6:58pm and walked directly to Sloane Square, what time would I arrive? 5. I want to arrive at Westminster at exactly 4:53pm. What time should I leave the coffee shop at Green Park Tube station? 6. I want to arrive at Regent's Park Tube station at exactly 1:05pm. What time should I leave Oxford Circus Tube station? 7. I walk from Covent Garden to Russell Square via Holborn the back to Covent Garden along the same route. If I leave Covent Garden at 10:45pm, what time will my walk end? 8. I set out from Oxford Circus at 11:12am and walk to the next Tube station. I get there at 11:19am. What is the name of that station? 9. What is the average walking time (in minutes) between pairs of adjacent stations on the Piccadilly line between South Kensington and Covent Garden? 10.

"A Maths colleague introduced me to your web site and I love to use it. The questions are so varied I can use them with all of my classes, I even let year 13 have a go at some of them. I like being able to access the whole month so I can use favourites with classes I see at different times of the week. Thanks."

"My year 8's absolutely loved the "Separated Twins" starter. I set it as an optional piece of work for my year 11's over a weekend and one girl came up with 3 independant solutions."

## Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths page is an alphabetical list of free activities designed for students in Secondary/High school.

"Did you know a standard scientific calculator can be used to work out time calculations similar to the ones required in the exercise above? You can type a time into the calculator using this button:

The following calculation was used to find out the time 27 minutes after 3:55pm:

3°55° + 0°27°

You can see a demonstration of using this calculator key on the Calculator Workout page. "
