# Max Maths, Year 5, Try it, Word problems (2)

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 5 mathematics problem, students are asked to calculate the duration of time that Toby slept before waking up for the second time. To solve this, the problem suggests drawing a timeline as a visual aid. The timeline would show key times throughout the night, starting from 23:00 and marking each hour until 03:00. By adding the time intervals between each hour, students can determine the total amount of time that has elapsed before Toby's second awakening. This practical approach to solving time-related word problems helps students understand the concept of duration and the addition of time periods.

The 'Let's Practise' section offers further word problems to reinforce the students' skills in dealing with time. The first problem involves Jade, who surfs the internet for 35 minutes each day, and students must calculate her total internet usage over one week and then over four weeks. The second problem returns to Toby, who accompanies his mother to the market. With departure and return times provided, students are tasked with figuring out the total time he spent away from home. These exercises are designed to build competency in calculating time intervals, an essential skill for real-world applications. Students are directed to workbook pages 131 to 133 for additional practice and to solidify their understanding.
