Skip Counting

Clip to ScrapBook #1

My son is in second grade and had a math sheet for homework tonight. There is one question that has thrown me for a loop, sad, I know.
Anyway, there was a 100s chart in which he was to follow these directions:
1. Finish coloring the skip counts by 10s. (So he colored the row of #s you would say when counting by 10s.)

2. Circle skip counts by 3s. (He started at 3 and circled the #s said when counting by 3s.)

3. What patterns do you see with skip counts by 10s and 3s?

That is the million dollar question. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I would say that the pattern with 10's is that it goes down the column in a straight line. With 3's it forms diagonal lines downward to the left

Are they asking him to notice the pattern created when the box is colored twice (once because it is a multiple of 3 and again because it is a multiple of 10)? example: 30, 60, 90?
