Millions of Minutes By Sasha Johnson Mr. King’s Class
The question By graduation in 2020, WILL we have gone to school for 1,000,000( one million) minutes?
Minutes per Day We go to school 6 hours per day. One hour is equal to 60 minutes. So if we multiply 6 x 60= 360 We go to school 360 minutes per day!
Minutes per Week We go to school 5 days per week. To get the minutes per week we need to multiply the days by the minutes per day. 5 x 360 =1800 We go to school 1800 minutes per week!
Minutes per year We go to 36 weeks per year To get the minutes per year we will need to multiply the minutes per week(1800) by the number of weeks we go to school x 36 = 64,800 Wow we go to school for 64,800 minutes per year!!!!!
2020 By our graduation in 2020 we will have gone to school for 13 years. To figure out how many minutes we need to multiply the years(13) by the minutes per year(64,800) 13 x 64,800 = 842,400 minutes By our graduation we would have gone to school for 842,400 minutes
