A hundreds chart can be used in many different ways to build number literacy, practice addition and subtraction skills, learn skip counting, and more. A hundreds chart is a useful companion to multiplication charts for learning the four arithmetic operations, and you should consider having both of these on hand when you start out teaching basic math facts.
The printable number charts here come in variations for 100 and 120 with versions of filled and blank hundreds charts that kids can also use as worksheets.
While many exercises were often performed with a basic 100s chart, you'll find often that kids fail to make the place value leap once they go over 100, and you'll get bizarre answers to questions like, 'What comes after 100?' including values like 200 or 110 or similar. Practicing with a 120s chart in these situations can help, and any of the exercises you'll perform with a typical hundreds chart will apply with a 120s chart as well.
You can use a hundreds chart to make kids comfortable with adding, subtracting, and even multiplying! For starters, just having kids count and identify the numbers on the chart is a great activity that helps them see and visualize the numbers. You may check our printable hundreds chart with words and numbers where underneath each number, is the number written in words. For example ’30’ and ‘thirty’.
One way to help establish that the numbers are a continuous sequence is to trim one edge of the number chart and roll it up, twisting it slightly so that the numbers from the previous row flow into the following ones, like this…
Not only is playing with a number tube fun, but it also shows how the numbers progress continuously and that they're not just arbitrary groups of 10 or rows on the chart.
Another great activity is to use these printable hundred chart window tools…
By understanding how moving up or down a hundreds chart involves adding or subtracting ten, and moving left or right involves adding or subtracting 1, kids can develop a great understanding of place value concepts. You can cut out those tools so that they either show only the number in the center or cut the horizontal and vertical flaps so that the students can pull them back to reveal the related numbers.
Another great hundreds chart activity is to cut up the chart into various odd shapes and let the kids put the chart back together again. It's an interactive way to explore how the numbers on the chart go together and reinforces the visual nature of the chart and how it relates to the pattern of numbers.
The rounding charts are another great way a hundreds chart can be a resource for a sometimes confusing math topic. The rounding charts have a dividing line between the four and the five, and a large pair of arrows at the top that tell which way to round a number. The chart has the 'zeroes' place duplicated in the first and last column to make it clear which number you wind up with, so you can't use these charts in quite the same way as a traditional hundreds chart, but for learning how to round numbers these charts can be a lifesaver.
Beyond basic counting, you will notice that the hundreds chart has patterns and relationships especially when skip counting. I created a set of skip counting worksheets where students will be asked to skip count and fill in the chart. Worksheets with multiple-choice questions for skip counting are also available.
I also added multiplication worksheets that shows how a hundreds chart and multiplication are connected. A hundreds chart is a grid of numbers from 1 to 100, arranged in rows and columns. Multiplication, on the other hand, is a mathematical operation that combines two numbers to find their product. This set of worksheets will let students solve each multiplication problem using a hundreds chart.
The hundreds chart also plays a vital role in mastering addition and subtraction, so I created a set of worksheets for this too! Students can solve the equations by counting forward or backward on the chart. As students engage with the chart, they learn to recognize the relationships between numbers and develop mental math strategies. Addition becomes a seamless process as students count forward on the chart, while subtraction becomes an exercise in counting backward.
Finally, and perhaps the most fun, I've built a whole series of puzzles and riddles that students can use to get familiar with the hundreds chart. The first set of worksheets includes puzzles with hidden pictures that are revealed when students find specific numbers on the hundred charts and color them according to the instructions for each picture.
The second set of worksheets will ask students to figure out and write the missing numbers from the puzzles.
And the last set, riddles! No matter how young or old you are, you will enjoy the cognitive challenge this brain teaser worksheet gives.
