If you thought you could never become addicted to a math product, you would be mistaken. I used to think that too before we received Pyramath from I See Cards. You see, math is one of those things I view as a necessary evil. I have never really liked math. However, I have a child who loves it and is quite good at it. So you can imagine if *I* am addicted to a math game, how bad it must be for my son.
Pyramath is a card game comprised of 56 cards. The game can be played by one or two players, or even teams if everyone wants in on the action. The game is designed to increase mathematical skills within a fun filled framework. There are four basic mathematical symbols on the back of each brightly colored card: plus sign, minus sign, times sign and a division sign. On the front of the card, a number is displayed along with the written out and translated number in English, Spanish, Chinese, Roman and Arabic. How cool is that?!
The object is to then add, subtract, multiply or divide your way to finish your pyramid first. It is a great way to practice your math facts and speed. We have had a great time playing these cards in our home. It is one of those things that is so fun, that your kids don’t mind that they are learning and improving skills at the same time.
The Pyramath cards are rather inexpensive for a card game. At only $6.95 a pack, it would be reasonable to add to your homeschool for a fun learning game. I am even thinking ahead for Christmas and think this would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for anyone. I might have to get a couple of more decks so we can each have our own. It is really that great!
