Q:

# What Information Is Included in a Chart of Numbers?

A:

A number chart is a table of numbers used to train students to count numbers. Typically, a number chart starts with either 0 or 1 and counts up one whole number at a time. A common number to stop at is a multiple of 10 such as 10, 20, 50 or 100. Some number charts have other counting intervals such as 2s, 3s, or 5s. Number charts with blanks can be good exercises for kids to fill in the blanks.

## Keep Learning

Number charts can be found in elementary school textbooks, worksheets and online. Online, there are interactive number charts where students can play games where often they can generate different-sized number charts on which they can put counters or colors on any box with numbers.

Aside from counting, number charts can used for other teaching purposes by allowing students to shade in the boxes. Students can learn to count backwards or identify special numbers such as age, shoe size, primes or the number of siblings.

Other examples include identifying primes, composite numbers, even or odd numbers, ranges of numbers, or factors of numbers. A number chart with numbers in random order can also be used to play games such as bingo.
