## Hundreds Charts – Definition

What is a hundreds number chart, and how do you use it? In this text we explore how to use a hundreds chart in math.

A hundreds chart is a tool to see patterns, count, and even add or subtract. A one hundreds chart has the numbers one to one hundred organized into columns and rows.

Looking at the squares, you see they count forward by one (...) in rows of ten. When we read a hundreds chart we read it the same way that we read a book, from left to right. Like reading, when we get to the last number on the right we go down to the next row and start from the left again. You might notice patterns in hundreds charts if you look at the columns. You can see that all of the numbers in the ones place of this column have the number two… and that the other columns and rows follow similar patterns.

## Hundred Charts – Missing Numbers

What happens when you find a hundreds chart with missing numbers? When there is a missing number on a hundreds chart, you can use counting on a hundreds chart and patterns to help fill in the hundreds chart. You can use what you know about place value to help figure out where the missing number will go.

## Hundreds Charts – Practice

Let’s practice finding the missing number using the example below! Skylar and Henry have the number thirty-four and need to figure out where it goes on the chart! Thirty-four has a three in the tens place, so we can find the other numbers that start with three. Then we can count starting from the first number with a three in the tens place to find where thirty-four goes. Thirty-four comes after thirty-three and before thirty-five!

• ### Can you complete the hundreds chart?

Hints

Look at the numbers around the missing number.

• What do the numbers in that row begin with?
• What do the numbers in that column end with?

Look at the number before the missing number, what comes next?

For example, here we can see that 14 comes before the missing number. One more than 14 is 15.

Solution

Here is the complete hundred square.

• ### Match the parts of the hundreds square.

Hints

Look at the numbers around the missing number.

• What do the numbers in that row begin with? What number is in the tens place?
• What do the numbers in that column end with? What number is in the ones place?

For example, here we can see that the numbers in the row have a 3 in the tens place and the numbers in the column have a 7 in the ones place, so the missing number is 37.

Look at the number before the missing number, what comes next?

Solution

Here are the correct missing numbers.

• ### Can you fill in the missing numbers?

Hints

Look at the other numbers in the row, what will the missing number have in the tens place?

Look at the other numbers in the column, what will the missing number have in the ones place?

Remember, you read a hundred square like a book so when you get to the end of a row, the next number comes at the beginning of the next row.

Solution

Here is the completed hundreds chart with the numbers that were missing highlighted.

• ### Can you order the numbers?

Hints

Find the smallest number in each set to start with and then find this number on the hundreds chart. What comes next?

Do the numbers that you are ordering start with the same number? Find the row with those numbers on to help you order.

Remember, you read a hundreds chart like a book, so once you get to the end of one row you go to the left of the next row to continue reading.

You need to use one of the columns to help you order the final sequence.
