This worksheet consists of time-related word problems for eighth-grade students, incorporating various scenarios that require calculating durations, understanding time zones, and determining speeds. The problems involve situations like determining the travel time of a high-speed train, the duration of a meeting, the local time of flight arrival considering time zones, and the average pace in a half marathon. Students must also calculate cooking times, work breaks, train schedules, and the finish time for watching a movie and a race.
The worksheet aims to enhance students’ ability to work with time in a practical context, improving their skills in calculating durations, converting time across different time zones, and understanding rates of speed. It helps students to apply mathematical operations to everyday situations, fostering problem-solving skills and an appreciation for the importance of time management. Additionally, this worksheet is designed to prepare students for more complex mathematical concepts in high school while making them aware of how time influences various aspects of daily life and global interactions.
