Millions of minutes By Kaylee Reiman Mrs. Graffin’ s class Mrs. Graffin’ s class2011-2012

The Question  By our 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.  6 hours x60 minutes=360 minutes  We go to school 360 minutes per day!

Minutes per week  We go to school 5 days per week.  If we take 360 minutes per day and multiply by 5 days per week  360x5=1,800  Wow, we go to school 1,800 mintues per week

Minutes per Year  We go to school 36 weeks per year.  We know we go to school 1,800 minutes per week so to get the minutes per year we will need to mulitply.  36x1,800 =minutes per day!

By 2020  We graduate in 2020 and by that time we will have gone to school 13 years.  To figure out the total minutes by 2020 we will need to multiply.  64,800 x 13 = 842,400  Wow! We have gone to school 842,400 minutes!!!!☻

Conclusion  By our graduation in 2020 we will not have gone to school for one million minutes. Instead we would have only gone for 842,400 minutes
