Competency: C. Understand and Use Numbers

### C2. Manage time

C2.2 Make low-level inferences to calculate using time

Competency C: **Understand and Use Numbers**

Task Group C2: **Manage time**

Level: **2**

At this level, learners: **Make low-level inferences to calculate using time**

**Performance Descriptors**

The learner:

- Calculates using numbers expressed as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percentages
- Interprets and applies rates (e.g. $/hr, km/hr, cooking time/pound)
- Converts between units of time (e.g. millennia, centuries, decades, years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds)
- Makes simple estimates
- Interprets, represents, and converts time using whole numbers, decimals, percentages, ratios, and simple, common fractions (e.g. ½, ¼)
- Chooses and performs required operation(s); may make inferences to identify required operation(s)
- Selects appropriate steps to reach solutions
- Understands and converts time between 12- and 24-hour clocks
- Converts time between time zones
- Uses strategies to check accuracy (e.g. estimating, using a calculator, repeating a calculation, using the reverse operation)

**Task Descriptors**

- Scope of task is clearly defined
- May include unfamiliar elements (e.g. context, content)
- Requires the use of rates, or requires two or more operations, where operations are easily inferred
- Requires up to a few steps to complete
- May be completed in more than one way
- May involve one document (e.g. table, schedule)
- May require converting between whole numbers, decimals, fractions, ratios, and percentages
