Reminiscent of primordial grid designs used in different print mediums, Basic Maths is one of the most elegant, and smartly-designed themes we’ve ever seen. We are thrilled to have it now available for WordPress.com sites as a Premium Theme.
Apart from a thoughtful design, Basic Maths also offers some cool features, including the possibility to choose custom colors for links and other visual elements, helping you make this theme feel more personal to your site. If you want to make a statement about how important your content is, Basic Maths could be the answer.

I’d love to see how the custom header fits on this.
Don’t like it. :(
Wow, I look forward to seeing this theme around the web! Very sharp! (I’d consider it for one of my blogs if not for the $$).
Very clean. Makes for easy focus on content.
Wow, this theme looks very professional. Reminds me of a clean, modern newspaper layout. With the support, clearly worth the $75. I’m not sure I have a blog that’s worthy of this theme right now, but I hope to be able to use it in the future.
Don’t like basic themes, hate paying money for making custom CSS :(
Need more colors
Too clean but very ordered.
Looks clean! If I had a blog about Math or Computer Science maybe I’d use it… that being said I blog about Economics, so given the nature of the field maybe its not such a stretch… smooth looks and the color customization is a must!
This one is too busy for my liking, and I don’t really get a math vibe from it.
I don’t like it either. (It’s very boring.)
Simply amazing. I love it!
This has to be my favorite theme so far, but I don’t get enough traffic to justify the purchase. Will there ever be a free ‘stripped down’ version of this? At least, until I can convince my wife of the “investment opportunities” of going premium? :)
Excellent theme. Would have used it were it not for the 75$ fee.
What a very simple and awesome theme. Thank you WP! Keep the themes coming. We like that.
Way too basic, or better said, simple.
I love how the selected text appears in blue. Blue is so calming.
I’m really digging the grid — makes the info very clear and accessible.
“Basic” Math sounds great. If it said University Math I would be hesitant. :)
It’s awesome what we can do with this theme… the customization is really nice, and with cool typography the result could be just great!
Nice theme—please make more free themes, too. Like Vigilance.
I don’t like it very much, but it’s clean and simple.
Very neat! But almost too neat… Great job though! :)
Beautifully clean. You should get Allan’s Autofocus theme on here, that’s stunning too.
Yes, I agree with ‘john hayden': it’s obviously a modern newspaper layout, and looks cool and ideal. I hope to use it in the future.
Not sure I ‘get’ this one. It’ll be interesting to see how it’s used.
Ooh, love the custom colors for links!
A little pricey.
Too much use of grid lines, makes it look dated or awkward. Yes, I know some people LOVE Excel and this would be totally for them. But that’s not a design feature, that’s doing mathematical calculations and being able to read all the dense, fine numbers.
Well, I still like Grid Focus, though. :)
Nice theme. :) However, I’ve just moved to Choco… and my visitors just love it. :) Thanks a ton.
Clean as a whistle. Nice!
I don’t really care for it. I like more fun, feminine but customizable designs. What is up with all these paid designs lately? I guess it would be okay if they were flashy, but there is nothing exciting about them.
It has a lot going for navigation. Great for displaying your stats and archives, but I don’t think it would meet my needs.
Clean and smart, just how I like em. Nicely done WP. :)
Very nice. Another one to try.
I am not too sure I like all the Premium Themes coming out lately.
The biggest thing that attracted me to WP.com was that the themes at least were free. While I understand that WP.com has to make money, I personally contribute by paying for a hosting upgrade.
I would also like to know whether the Theme Team is planning to come up with special mobile friendly themes (flexible width!!!) in the future, considering that in the future, the Internet will be mostly accessed by mobile devices ?
I didn’t like it.
Wow…. good idea, it just like the name of it, kind of sistematical desgin.. more text than image. good work!
I can’t stand too much blank spaces. Not good for your eyes.
Nice, different.. I like it! :)
Simple and elegant, yet a bit serious.
I simply love this design simplicity. Beautiful!
Really like the theme I am using now and looked very long to find and settle for it, but this one is very tempting…
I love it… Good job… Thanks
Seems to look nice. Now if you could turn off the iPad theme on the showcase I might even be able to have a closer look at it….
Love the ‘Asmodeus’ category…
Loved this theme. :-)
Fantastic! It’s elegant and neat. A great theme! Well done!
Yes, it’s a lovely new theme.
This is fresh! Thanks. :)
Why is it every blogger loves every new theme as if its the best thing in the world. For once I would like to see someone say they dont like it or the designer did a bad job. I’m not saying this one is done badly but its not very appealing to the eye. I think why Rusty Grunge for example, was so good was the colors. If your gonna show something off show it with color. I know you can customize and add color but you should show it with color. And the name ‘Basic Maths’ it reminds me too much off school, better yet math which is my least favorite subject. Seriously dude where do you get these name? Shouldn’t they be more like the actual theme?
Interesting theme… It’s really unique and simple but growing up, I despise math with a passion so this is out of my style, haha.
I like it; it’s got a newspaper feel to it… too bad it would not look that good on my site.
Cool, but I’ll stick to my current theme :)
Simple and cool.
Absolutely math :D Nice, good job :)
Nice theme! :-)
As a maths junky, I’m loving it!!
I hate maths but I liked Basic Maths :D
Now “Basic” doesn’t mean basic… it’s more than enhanced.
Good name “Basic Math”. It reminds me of my Calculus Professor Mr. Harper. Very clean, organized and professional
I think the theme is great, and it will be, if it’s fully flexible and customisable. :)
Cool theme! I will try it, thanks!
Oh gosh, I don’t like this one at all, sorry WP Team! I hate math too, maybe that’s why? Just too many lines, and too much going on all over the place here. That’s ok though, can’t win ‘em all. :) A for Effort?
Really cool… I always love light themes. :)
Nice and clean. And, while not for me personally, it is another great addition. Thanks.
Hmm. The first new theme I am not liking. But doesn’t matter! ;) I already love my recent theme :D
It is cool, but it is also overpriced.
Too simple and plain.
Very nice this theme, thanks for sharing!
One of the more intriguing designs in a while! It doesn’t fit my site’s scheme, but it’s pretty cool! Thank you!
This is the best theme I have seen yet. It is simply stunning. I will start a new blog just to use it!
Whoa, Math. It makes me chill. (Way back in my former course in college.) This theme is good!
Too busy for me. I’d be afraid it would turn viewers away because of cognitive overload.
I’m not too keen on this theme but with so many wonderful WordPress bloggers I know someone will like this! Keep ‘em coming.
Well, Its fine but its seems confusing to get around and stuff.
Nice clean design and one I would love to have on my blog, but $75 for something only a few people read. Not for me yet!
Need more colors and WordPress magic.
I LOVE this!
Nice. If only it were for free…
Nice. Been waiting for this theme to be available… Subtraction.
We need more themes with dark content area and light text as these are easier on the eyes than white space. Why are only a few WP themes like this? I changed my blog theme recently and I only found one that I liked: Modularity Llte, with black content area. There should be some other options for the color of the content area. For example, I would like to change a WP website theme to a blue content area.
I wish I could afford this unfortunately I can’t. It’d be nice to see some free themes :D I know they are a lot… :D but still :D
Looks kind’a dumb to me.
Love this! But are there options for the home page of the blog? I have featured images for many posts, and like there to only be a preview on the front page vs having the entire post show up. I adore how each post looks, but would need to know just how may options there are for customizing the front page before even considering laying out the purchase price on this one.
Cool theme, but costly.
Wow, looks really great.
Exelllent job, bro. :) I love it.
Oh, I like it! Very clean and easy to read. Definitely considering switching.
I really like it. It reminds me of a newspaper layout. Good job WP.
Don’t like it. Way too basic for me.
