Perceptions of Time

In this activity, students will explore human perception of time through the exploration of different calendars. Using philosophical questioning regarding the idea of time, and its measurement, they will be encouraged to research and compare the solar (Gregorian) and the lunar (Hijri) calendars, as well as other calendars used by different traditions and civilizations. In addition, students are likely be challenged to use mathematical skills and problem solving to convert dates using these different calendars, and lead to discuss the notion and idea of time in theoretical terms, as well as its contemporary relevance.
