Speed, Distance, Time

Learn the following time/speed patterns

– There are 2 periods of 30 minutes in an hour

– There are 3 periods of 20 minutes in an hour

– There are 4 periods of 15 minutes in an hour

– There are 5 periods of 12 minutes in an hour

– There are 6 periods of 10 minutes in an hour

– There are 10 periods of 6 minutes in an hour

– There are 12 periods of 5 minutes in an hour

– There are 15 periods of 4 minutes in an hour

– There are 20 periods of 3 minutes in an hour

– There are 30 periods of 2 minutes in an hour

– At 60mph, you travel one mile, every minute

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An easy way to remember the distance, speed and time equations is to put the letters into a triangle.

triangle_speed_distance_time

 

Now work your way through the examples to calculate DISTANCE, SPEED and TIME  and then try the Distance, Speed and Time Test. ‘It is important that, for all of these calculations, the UNITS used correspond with each other.’
