We know that Daniel is skip counting. We need to work out which skip count he’s using and which digit changes each time. We can use our place value chart to help. Let’s say all of the numbers in Daniel’s skip count, 202, 302, 402, 502, 602. The hundreds digit changed each time. The other digits stayed the same.

The hundreds digit changes each time. It increases by 100. What will the next three numbers in the sequence be? Let’s start at 202 and skip count by hundreds to help us find the next three numbers in the sequence, 202, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 902. Daniel is skip counting by hundreds.
