This investigation explores using different shapes as the hands of
the clock. What things occur as the the hands move.
During the third hour after midnight the hands on a clock point in
the same direction (so one hand is over the top of the other). At
what time, to the nearest second, does this happen?
How many times in twelve hours do the hands of a clock form a right
angle? Use the interactivity to check your answers.
