Skip counting by 50 and 100

Sep 6, 2014 12:35pm

I am confused that whether the skip counting by 50 should be like 50, 100, 150 or it can also be in form of 48, 98, 148. Any more details would be much appreciated. Thank you!

      In general when using any kind of counting method like by 5's, 10's, etc it implies using the numbers in its name (counting by 5's uses 5, counting by 10 uses to, etc) but it is certainly a fun way to extend and explore the idea more for students who understand the concept. I would start simple and move from there for some good discussion and conceptual understanding.
