I guess understanding the measurements of time isn't a major focus of the standardized tests they make students focus on nowadays.

Did you explain to the student that they should go find out what a minute was? I mean - before it's time to be a grownup? I just. I mean. Isn't this the sort of thing you're taught by the time you're maybe six or seven? Isn't the number of seconds in a minute something a person ought to absorb just because they've been alive and around other people, and had to know what time it was? Digital clocks are the norm nowadays, and they make it extremely obvious, don't they?

Has your student never used a clock?
