Ruth Beechick, An Easy Start in Arithmetic

The number chart at ABCYa allows you to use different colors to create your chart, and then print a copy.

There are many ways to use a hundred number chart:

  • Skip count by 10s, 5s, 2s, or 3s by coloring in the appropriate corresponding squares.
  • Use the chart for simple addition; for example, when calculating 9+3=, add 3 to 9 by finding 9 and counting forward 3 squares.
  • Count backward by 10s, 5s, or 2s.
  • Learn simple subtraction; for example, when calculating 9-3=, begin at 9 and count backward 3 squares.
  • Look for patterns. For example, try adding 9 to any number.
  • Play a game (see resources below).
  • Find the number. Think of a number and as in 20 questions, have the student ask questions to identify the number.
  • Generate a list of prime numbers by using the Sieve of Eratosthenes.

The options are nearly endless.
