As students solve problems related to time, they discover patterns and build understanding of the relationships among seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and years. Reasoning about time also strengthens concepts related to estimation, orders of magnitude, common multiples, ratios, and operations with numbers that are based on grouping by sixty instead of by ten.
