Pyramath Review

Memorizing Math facts has always been a bit of a challenge for Paul. He knows the concept but because the facts aren't memorized he can't recall them quickly. We have worked on addition and subtraction facts for a couple of years now and continue to review them regularly. Now we add in our multiplication and division facts for almost daily review. We have used flash cards, various computer games and just simply saying the facts over and over. Now we have added Pyramath to our repertoire of tools to review math facts with.


PyraMath Decks Include:

  • 54 Math Learning Cards
  • Each card clearly numbered
  • Each card clearly labeled with 4 mathematical symbols
    addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
  • Each card clearly marked with English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Roman, and French numerical translation and symbols.

At only $6.95 a deck this is a great value and can be used for many years and for multiple children, making it an even better deal.

Paul and I really enjoy this game and play it often. We have taken along with us to play while waiting for the other two to do gymnastics. We played it often the weeks that we didn't do as much school because of Molly's tonsillectomy and it is a regular visitor to his workboxes on a normal school day. It has helped him sharpen his math facts while having fun at the same time. It is definitely a game that will be used often for years to come! There are many different ways to play the game and Paul even played it alone a couple of times.

The company, Brainy Attic, that makes Pyramath also makes many other great card games for kids that help with Math and Language skills. I know we will be purchasing the Fraction game soon! There are also some online games that you can try. We haven't tried them since I try to limit the kids computer time but I have heard great things about the games online. Don't forget to take a look at reviews from other TOS crew members here.
