One Reason Why I love Using the Hundred Board and Why You Should Too if You Have a Reluctant Math Student

How I Used the Hundreds Board with a Reluctant Student

  • Numeracy and Place Value using the 0 to 99 board
  • Ratio & Proportion — using a 1 to 100 board instead of 0 to 99. I made students visualize a dollar as a hundred board. Then I made them visualize a penny as one small box of the board. Then I let them cut a hundred board by 5s, 10s and 25s to visualize nickels, dimes and quarters.
  • Multiplication — I let them color the board to show multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 10
  • Years later, I saw Peter in a district-wide event. He still do not talk that much but he gave me a wide grin of recognition. He is happier and I am grateful to be a small part of his learning journey.
