### #Educational Analog Clock
It is time to talk about “time” in mathematics, using the educational clock model with three hands. By default, the clock measures 120 mm in diameter. The three hands can be easily snapped on or off.
Of course, this is not a “working” clock, in the sense that the hands are NOT mechanically related to each other. Then, there are some advantages, too, especially when we want to think proportionally about the clock dial.
For example, how should we position the three hands so that it reads “3:45” ? What might be a wrong way to position the three hands?
STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
