Subject: How much time for math?

I am a middle school math teacher feeling like the issue of time is never considered as a need by all children. I would like to gather information on time allotted for math for students in grades 5 - 8. I would like to see if there is a wide range, and exactly how other teachers view the amount of time students spend in a math classroom where exploration and communication is promoted due to a sufficient time. How long is your math class? Do you work in a block schedule setting? If so, what impact do you feel it has on studnet learning? Thanks!
