What is Step Counting of Numbers?

Step counting of numbers involves counting by a predetermined increment or step size, skipping or adding a specific value to reach the next number in the sequence. It provides an efficient method for counting large numbers or organizing numbers in a pattern.

For example, counting by twos involves starting with a number and then adding 2 to it to determine the next number. The sequence would be 2, 4, 6, 8 and so on. Similarly, counting by fives would involve adding five to each number in the sequence: 5, 10, 15, 20 and so forth.

Forward-Step Counting of Numbers

Forward-step counting involves counting numbers by skipping a specific value in the positive direction. When skipping rope, kids count the number of jumps they make. They increment the count by twos, fives or tens to challenge themselves and keep track of their progress. For example, 5, 10, 15 and so on.

Step Counting by 2

Step counting by 2 is like hopping on a number line. Instead of taking one small step at a time, we leap ahead, skipping every other number. This step-counting method helps us quickly identify and explore the world of even numbers.

For example, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and so on.

Step Counting by 3

Step counting by 3 is a marvellous mathematical dance. With each stride, we skip two numbers and leap into the realm of triplets. It's like unlocking a secret code, where we embrace the delightful patterns and multiples that await us on this captivating numerical journey.

For example, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18….

Step Counting by 5

If you want to count in steps of 5, you can start from a specific number and add 5 to it each time. Here's an example of counting by 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on.

For example, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25….

Step Counting by 10

Step counting by 10 involves adding 10 to a starting number and continuing the pattern. Each subsequent number is obtained by adding 10 and counting up in steps of 10.

Backward-Step Counting of Numbers

Backward counting means counting down or going in reverse order. Instead of increasing numbers, you decrease them one by one until you reach the desired count. It's like taking steps backward instead of forward.

Backward-step Counting by 2

Backward-step counting by 2 involves subtracting 2 from a starting number and continuing the pattern in reverse. Each subsequent number is obtained by subtracting 2, counting down in steps of 2 until the desired count is reached.

For example, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10…..

Backward-step Counting by 3

Backward-step counting by 3 involves subtracting 3 from a starting number and continuing the pattern in reverse. Each subsequent number is obtained by subtracting 3, counting down in steps of 3 until the desired count is reached.

For example, 30, 27, 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, 3….

Backward-step Counting by 5

Counting backward in steps of 5 involves subtracting 5 from a starting number and continuing the pattern in reverse. You keep subtracting 5 from the previous number to get the next one, counting down in intervals of 5 until you reach the desired count.

For example, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30….

Backward-step Counting by 10

Backstep counting by 10 involves subtracting 10 from a starting number and continuing the pattern. Each subsequent number is obtained by subtracting 10, counting down in steps of 10.
