  • that there are 24 different timezones in the world

  • how to calculate elapsed time.


  • that different places around the world are located in different timezones.

Time Zones

The Earth is a spherical shape, so the sun only shines on one part of the Earth while the other part of the world is in darkness.

As the Earth rotates different parts of the world will receive sunlight.

Depending on what part of the Earth you are on, you will have a different time compared to other places around the world.
