# Maths Pyramids for Mental Maths Practice

Recently updated! Mental Maths practice is fun especially when you do your addition and subtraction up and down pyramids!

How do these pyramids 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 a higher number of values or more numbers in each row.
• Place each sheet in a plastic protector and let your children use a dry wipe pen.

Hi the link to your maths pyramid worksheet doesn’t work. I can get the answer sheets but the actual worksheets link is broken. Could you please email it to me maybe? I’d love it for my kids while homeschooling right now. Thanks so much.
