A **hundred chart** (or hundred board) is a great resource for all levels of math. For Delaney, I cover up numbers with colored tiles and she tells me which numbers are hiding. Both girls have used the hundred chart to circle skip counting patterns, too. I thought I would share a few **hundred chart activities and resources** that we have been using lately:

Natalie is loving the hundred board logic problems at Mathwire *(pictured above)*. She completed all three problems, and I need to spend some time creating more like them. Mathwire has other hundred board activities too, including hundred board puzzles and missing numbers.

Let’s Play Math has a collection of 20+ Things To Do With a Hundred Chart – from simple number pattern activities to more complicated multiplication and fraction work. Lots of great ideas!

Give the Dog a Bone online game – find 10 numbers on a blank hundred chart in one minute.

Tip of the Day: Need a hundred chart? Find a printable hundred chart at The Math Worksheet Site (you can print one from 1-100 or from 0-99). Print it on cardstock, laminate it, and then you can use it for games, solving problems, finding patterns, etc.

*I would love to hear how you are using a hundred chart to practice math skills!*

Thanks so much! I just did some things with skip counting and prime numbers (sieve of Eratosthenes) and have been looking for more activities with the hundred chart. My son will LOVE the logic problem above and similar.

This is a great idea, I can see how this will really help! Karen

Hi-

I love your math ideas. My daughter is in kindergarten and is having trouble with coins, mainly adding up their values. Do you have any fun ideas for math with coins?

Thanks,

Jeni

What great timing! I just discovered how helpful a hundred chart can be. We’re using ours to practice strategies to find one of the parts when the whole equals 100. For example is you have 36 and you need to know what to add to it to get 100, you can cover up 3 rows of 10 and 6 ones, starting from the bottom and the answer reveals itself. Also you can start at 36, count up ones to 40 and then count 10s to 100.

I was looking up math games to add to my BUILD system of Daily 5 Math plus teach my students how to use the tools in their Math Toolkit. I am starting with the 100 chart and saw the Give the Dog a Bone and thought how I could adapt that for my special needs students. I have some magnetic squares that has mulipicaiton drills for each number 0-12 THe answer is on one side so I thought I will take those and make a large on the board 100 chart (the board can handle magnets) and put ten bones covering the 2 x 2 part, give students a copy of the 100 chart in their Math Toolkit and set up different activities like If I have 0 and I skip count by 2 what will be my next number? Student points to their answer, if I turn over the same number and it has a bone on it then the class gets a point on the Scoreboard, if wrong then I as the teacher gets a point on the Scoreboard. This all ties in with the Whold Brain teaching I will be using this school year. So I made me some bones and will tape on the side with the mulipcaiton sentennce and develop 10 different math probelms….covering skip counting, count on count back addition subtration. It seems like a fun way to help kids understand how to use the 100 chart to do math.
