### What is a Hundreds Chart?

What is a hundreds chart, and how do you use it? In this video, Skylar and Henry are exploring! They decide to use a map to help them explore and find a hundreds number chart on the back! They use the map and the chart on the back to see if they can find treasure. Take a look below to learn more about math hundreds chart.

#### How to Use a Hundreds Chart

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 hundreds chart patterns 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.

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.

#### Interactive Hundreds Chart - 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!
