Pyramath with Powers Game

Pyramath using Powers


This is a variation on standard game, but adds the addition on powers to the normal plays of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This is easy to show by example.



2 and 3 side by side


The normal plays would be 1 (3-2), 5 (3+2), and 6 (2 x 3). By adding powers to the mix you also add the plays 9 (3^2) and 8 (2^3). This also opens up an entire host of plays when a 0 is played (1^0 = 1, 2^0 = 1, 3^0 = 1, etc...). It is also a great introduction to the concept of powers. Now if I could just remember 6^7 off the top of my head... (oh yea, 279936)
