There are 168 hours in a week and kids have trouble managing that time. This activity is designed with several objectives in mind.
1) It can help students realize how and where they spend their time. This can be the springboard for time management conversations.
2) In this activity students are asked to calculate the percent of time they spend doing activities and to translate that into degrees of central angles.
3) This activity reinforces the use of a protractor, ratios, proportions, and percents.
Included in the student handout are: a template with formulas, student reflection questions, an example of what the circle graph may look like, and a circle template. There is also an Excel rubric imbedded in the file so the teacher can just type in the points earned for each item and the total will be provided for you.
