2 How do I work with this book? Dear student! On this page we show you how your textbook for geography and economics is structured. It has four chapters. Each chapter is in a specific color (1). Two opposite pages (2) deal with a topic. Almost all double pages have a colored section on the left with informational texts. If you search for the letters A, B or C on the left edge of the book, you will find these information texts. The heading after the letters A, B or C gives you some initial information about the content. You can always find the tasks at the bottom left. Photos, drawings and maps serve as pictorial supplements to the information texts. Have fun and good luck working with this book!

The time here and elsewhere Sebastian's parents have been in New York for a week. You are there on a business trip and will not be returning to Austria for two weeks. The separation from his parents is not easy for Sebastian. For the first time, he's been apart from them for so long. During this time he stays with his grandma. Last night his grandmother's bitch had three puppies. Sebastian can call his parents today. At seven o'clock sharp in the morning he dials his mother's number. She sounds very sleepy and worried at the same time. Sebastian is surprised that his parents are still asleep at this time. The division into time zones The earth is divided into 24 time zones. There is an hour difference from one time zone to the next. The starting point of the time of the world clock is at the prime meridian in Greenwich (London). The date line is at 180 degrees longitude. For example, a new day begins on the date line when it is noon in Greenwich. The north-south lines of the time zones run over seas and sparsely populated areas mostly straight along meridians. On the mainland, the time zones are often adapted to national borders. With the specified time zones, any time difference between two locations can be calculated. Eastern European Time is one hour after Central European Time (CET). West European Time (GMT) is one hour ahead of CET. A B 1 Sebastian with the dog grandma You know ... They say that an "internal clock" is ticking in our body.

In map 4 all time zones of the earth are visible. 2. In the lower bar a you can read the time at the respective locations. For example: If it is 12:00 in Vienna, it is 11:00 in London. The time difference is one hour. 3. In the top bar b you can see the time difference. For example: the time difference between Vienna and London is -1 (minus one hour). 4. Some states are not in a specific time zone. These states have a special time c that differs from their time zone. It's already 7:00 a.m. I have to hurry with breakfast or I'll be late for school.
