Number Pyramid Number Pyramid is a game designed to help KS1 students learn basic addition and subtraction skills. The player has to help Molly get out of the pyramid. To do this they must answer five maths question.

Molly comes towards a stone door, with two armed statues on either side. If you get the question right, by either selecting the right number of sign, the statues will bang their weapons on the ground and the door will open. If you don't, then the statues will put their weapons in the way and Molly's friend Max will pop up and inform the player about the mistake. Once the player has correctly answered all five questions, Molly is able to leave the pyramid.

The game has three difficulty modes: medium, hard and really hard. Medium has basic addition questions. Hard adds subtraction, uses bigger numbers and has symbol based questions where the player decides if it is an addition or subtraction question. Really Hard adds three digit numbers and has subtraction and symbol based question like in the hard round. [source:mobygames]
