# Maths Pyramids Worksheets

### How do these work?

1. Add the 2 numbers next to each other in a row and write the answer in the circle above those 2 numbers.
2. Add all neighbouring numbers in every row.
3. Fill in the answers until the row above is full.
4. Now add those numbers until you fill all the rows and reach the top of the pyramid.
5. Where the numbers start at the top, subtract the number below it to find the missing ‘neighbouring’ number.

## Note:

• Some pyramids work from the bottom up – addition , while others work from the top down – subtraction.One pyramid involves several addition or subtraction sums per pyramid = lots of practice!
• Each sheet has several pyramids = loads of practice
• There are 2 pages for each level = plenty of practice
• And we all know that maths practice = mastery
• The next level has higher number values or more numbers in each row.
• Place each sheet in a plastic protector and let your children use a dry wipe pen.

Enjoy 🙂

These are great I always love all your math worksheets. You have some great ideas and I’m so glad you love to share:) I have a question on the 1st few pages your example has 2,1,3 on the bottom so shouldn’t the next row be 3,4 and then the final number be 7? Is it just too early for me or is the example wrong?
Thanks,
Heather

2. I don’t get it. IN the first example that you give.
how does 3 and 1 give you three?

If I follow what the arrows are telling me I should get a total of seven, not six.

if you could explain that better I would appreciate it.

okay…. didn’t see the previous comments… got it now! 🙂
