you don't say es las tres y media because es is singular.

Es is used for es la una.-It is one o'clock.

Where son is plural of es and is used with all other hours, e.g. son las tres y media.-It is 3:30.

In 1.11, they give you a conjugation of ser. 1st person singular: soy plural: somos 2nd person singular: eres plural: sois 3rd person singular: es plural: son

Also you should watch lesson 1.8 again.
