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.
Thank you to children from Knaphill School who
sent lots of solutions to this problem. Kevin described very
carefully how to get to each of the places:
Jack from Eastwood Primary School described
visiting all the places in one journey. This is what he wrote:
Well done, Jack, that's a very efficient
way of visiting each place in turn.
Thank you to everyone else who sent us their
detailed description. Unfortunately there isn't space to publish
