**Skip counting** is a way of counting ahead by numbers other than 1. To skip count, we hold adding the same number each time to the earlier number.

For example, the skip counting by 3 given here, starting at 0, the next number will be 0 + 3 = 3, then, 3 + 3 = 6, then 6 + 3 = 9, then 9 + 3 = 12, and then, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 and so on.

## Skip counting on a number line.

Here, we are show **skip counting by 3** on a **number line**. So, starting at 0, the next number will be 0 + 3 = 3, then, 3 + 3 = 6, then 6 + 3 = 9, then 9 + 3 = 12, and then, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 and so on.
