Time Zones is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Geometry and Measurement, and subtopic Spherical Geometry. A time zone is a region that has a ‘local time’. They are calculated by their positive or negative difference away from the Greenwich Meridian. The most important information to note for this topic is:
- 15° of longitude = 1 hour time difference
This is used to determine travel times of journeys that cross two or more time zones from departure and arrival times.
