# G14d – Time

This is the students’ version of the page. Log in above for the teachers’ version.

Prerequisites
• A knowledge of the four operations from lessons N2aN2b and N2c is assumed.

# Key facts

• There are 60 seconds in 1 minute.
• There are 60 minutes in 1 hour.
• There are 24 hours in 1 day.
• There are 7 days in 1 week. The number of days in each month varies: there are 31 days in January, March, May, July, August, October, and December; 30 days in April, June, September and November; and 28 days in February—except in leap years, when there are 29 days in February.
• There are therefore 365 days in a year, except in leap years, when there are 366 days.
• Leap years normally occur every 4 years, handily when the year numbers are divisible by 4. So, the next ones will be 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032, and so on—with a few exceptions. For example, 2100 will not be a leap year, but 2104, 2108, 2112 and so on will be leap years.
• There are 10 years in 1 decade and 100 years in 1 century.

#### Interactive GeoGebra activity
