    Hi Steve!

    I first “met” you during Christina Tondevold’s Virtual Math Summit, and have been happily reading and downloading since! Thank you for sharing such wonderful ideas and insights for teachers to expand students’ understanding and thinking about math!
    I am wondering if you have plans to flip your 100’s chart maze with the recent discussions about having the 100 at the top rather than the bottom?

      Hi, Heidi. I’ve considered posted several variations including flipping the hundreds chart. If I post that one I’ll leave the original on there so there would be options for anyone who finds it useful both ways. It sounds like you would be interested in having that copy?

    Hello! I watched the video and love this maze hundreds chart however I am unable to use it the way that the video showed it (highlighting numbers as to where the students can start counting etc for example). It is downloaded as a power point so how can I convert this file into an interactive one? Thank you so much!

      Hi, Andrea. The maze hundreds chart – unfortunately – is only interactive in PowerPoint. I haven’t yet figured out a combination of animations that will work in Google Slides. If you have powerpoint, be sure to go to slide show then view show and it will work.

    HI Steve
    I’ve made an adaptation of this using the multiplication table instead and find it fascinating. I plan to talk about it on my blog, along with your original hundreds chart. Is that ok with you?

      Certainly!

    SO I discovered your Blog and your Maze Hundreds chart last week as I was looking for your Esti-mysteries and absolutely LOVE it! I think I spent 5 hours of my winter weather day off of school just exploring all the amazing things you offer! Would you ever consider making that chart into a 120’s chart? The second grade group I work with would really appreciate it! Thank you for considering it!

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on February 20, 2019 at 8:20 pm

      Yes, I actually have a copy of the interactive 120 chart. I think I need to post it now.

        Woo-hoo! You are AMAZING!

        • stevewyborney@gmail.com on February 23, 2019 at 9:14 am

          Thank you for your kind words, Tara!

    Steve, any thoughts on making an interactive bottom up 120 chart?!

  6. Mona Viteri Harutunian on November 30, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    Thank you for sharing this amazing tool. I can’t wait to use it with my students.

      You’re welcome, Mona! You may well find that the more you use the Maze Hundreds Chart, the more types of questions you are able to ask. It feels like the chart itself leads to a discovery journey. Enjoy!

    Can’t wait to try!

    • stevewyborney@gmail.com on October 9, 2016 at 10:59 pm

      Excellent! Thanks, Margaret! I would love to see pictures of your screen showing the patterns that you create!
