Time is a measure but it is a different from the other measures in that it cannot be seen or touched. However, we are surrounded by the effect of time passing, for example, day to night and one season to another. There are two aspects of time students must develop:
 time as an instant which can be named, for example, 6:15
 time as a duration which describes an amount of time that has passed, for example, a minute, the afternoon, the year.
