Other Comments:
I absolutely love this math game! Telling time is so hard to teach because there aren't many ways to really break it down for students. They tend to get it or not. But I think this game would be absolutely wonderful to help students practice telling time.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
How to tell time
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
Basic keyboarding skills
What extra things must be done to make it work?
None
How hard was it for you to learn?
Easy
Explanation:
Although this game is great, it will never take the place of good teaching. Students will need to be taught how to tell time before they attempt it on their own. The teacher may use it for demonstration but then, she must show the children how to play the game.

The students learned how to match the time on an analog clock to the time on a digital clock. They were able to explore how the hands were related to the numbers on the digital clock.
What did students do with the resource?
Tried to tell time on the analog clock and then create that same time on a digital clock by adding hours and minutes.
