A hundred charts are believed to help children to count from one to one hundred. By using a chart, children are expected to be able to find patterns of numbers to complete basic mathematics such as addition and multiplication. A hundred charts contain sequential numbers. The chart contains 100 boxes arranged in multiples of 10. The sequence of numbers on hundreds of charts usually starts from left to right. Example: (first horizontal line, 1 ... 10) then (second horizontal line 2 .... 20) and so on until number 100.
Learning to count can sometimes be tiring. Especially if the numbers calculated are large. But, you can make tricks to make it easier. A shortcut to skip counting! Sounds interesting, right? When you look at the hundred charts, you will find a pattern. That after 1 to 10, the row below it has the same back number as the first row. You just need to sort the numbers in front of it like counting 1-10. Remember, a hundred charts are rows of numbers with multiples of 10. So the keyword is multiples of 10.
The basic concept that can be taught by using a hundred grid charts is the value of a number. You can do a comparison of numbers using the hundred grid chart. For example, number 1 is smaller than number 10. In another way, the number 10 is greater than the number 1. You can practice it and continue to prepare to learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, and also division. Because they already understand the basics of numbers when using a hundred grid chart.
To create a hundred grid charts, you can use Excel or Word. In the same way, look for tabs in both Excel and Word. Then type the word “table”. You will be asked to fill in the number of columns and rows you want to make in the table. Write 10 in the column and 10 in the line. Easy right? But in both Excel and Word, you have to make a few changes to the size of the hundred grid charts that are ready. Because usually, the size of Excel or Word is very small. You can search for more attractive templates on the internet. Apart from the size on the internet, it is the ideal size for children to fill a hundred charts, the design is more interesting and varied.
