Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: studying for LSAT

This isn't about the LSAT, but I was thinking the other day about a different idea for a clock-reading invention. (I can read both digital and face clocks.) I was thinking that when someone with that 'clock problem' wants to figure out something, like the time for test that you're talking about, or maybe when to leave home to be someplace on time, that it might help to have the hours color coded. This should be 'programable', just like an alarm clock is programable. My idea is that, rather than having a normal 'timer',... here it's easier if I write an 'example'. Say, you have three hours for a test. The first 'hour' should be 'green', the second 'yellow', and the third 'red'. There just has to be a more user friendly way for dyscalculics with the 'clock problem' to be able to tell time and to pace themselves. It shouldn't be rocket science for someone to make a cute, user-friendly clock that can be easily consulted without having to do math every time the person looks at it. - jus'
That works for the hour, but not the minutes. I can guess the hour so long as the hand isn't right in the middle, then I get confused because I have to judge by where the minute hand is. It's the minute hand that confuses me.
