|Making Math Fun|
Pyramath, available from I See Cards for $6.95, comes complete with everything you need to start having lots more fun with math. The deck of cards, numbered 0-9, instruction booklet detailing various uses and several games, and access to online play. Another thing I like about the cards is that they each display the numerals in standard, Roman numeral, Arabic and Chinese. The number words are also written out in English, Spanish, French, Arabic and Chinese. Languages being another subject I would like to incorporate more into our learning program.

I put together a “carschool” bag this year, as we are frequently on the go, and the Pyramath cards are right in there with the audio books and the field guides. We frequently use the game as a warmup for our math lesson, but my son likes to work ahead as much as he can also, so after correcting the day’s math work, if we have a few extra moments, we will take out the Pyramath cards for a few games.
For the same price as other educational card games on the market, this one stands alone in bringing new enthusiasm to math teachers and students, at least at the homestead school! Although you can play for free online at the website, we highly recommend buying the game for one on one play. It’s a barrel of laughs!
