Pyramath

We recently received a deck of Pyramath cards from I See Cards. This simple deck of cards is a fun way to teach and learn math facts (especially for reluctant math learners,) while completing a pyramid with your cards.

Each deck includes 54 cards with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division symbols on the back as well as English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Roman and French numerical translations and symbols on the front.

Players practice their math skills by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing to try to be the first to complete their pyramid.

Because of the simplicity of the rules, it is easy to jump right in and start playing, and once you get the hang of it, this game is addicting. In fact, our family is in the throws of a Pyramath tournament -- all ages are competing together.

One of my homeschooling goals is to incorporate more math into our schedule and to make it more fun. I don't want my boys to look at math as drudgery or as an afterthought, so Pyramath is a welcome addition to my bag of tricks.

The Pyramath website also has a free online version you can play.
