Product Description

Life of Fred is a unique, complete (not supplemental!), math program that uses a highly engaging narrative to teach math without fear and with enjoyment. Students follow the life of Fred Gauss (a math professor who grows up to the age of six), who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures over the course of the curriculum. Math becomes relevant and important because the need for math occurs in Fred's life (and he sees math EVERYWHERE). Witty and truly entertaining, these books will engage students in a way unlike any other math program - --while also instilling a solid understanding of the principles of mathematics without an abundance of repetitive drills. This series is perfect for inquisitive students who struggle with the relevance of math, or anyone looking for a creative approach to mathematic thinking!

Apples is the first book in the Life of Fred Elementary Series, which is designed for students in grades 1-4. Students are ready to jump into this text if they can count, add, and subtract with numbers up to 10; it's recommended that all students who are new to Life of Fred (up through the 4th grade) should start with Apples.

Each chapter is approximately six pages, and ends with a "Your Turn to Play" segment with three or four questions. Answers are provided on the next page for students to go over themselves after attempting to solve the problems.

Apples covers: Numbers that Add to 7, Circles, Ellipses, Reading 6:00 on a Clock, 5 + ? = 7, Days of the Week, Leap Years, Spelling February, Dressing for Cold Weather, 15 Degrees Below Zero (-15:), Deciduous Trees, Deciduous Teeth, Counting by Fives, 3x + 4x = 7x, Archimedes 287 B.C. Wrote The Sand Reckoner and Got Killed Being Rude, ante meridiem (a.m.), Donner and Blitz in German, One Million, Euclid Wrote The Elements, Squares, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Whales Are Not Fish, The "There Are Zero . . ." Game, Sets, the Popularity of Zero, Why Boats Are Cheaper to Rent in the Winter, Triangles, Herbivores and Carnivores, the Colors of the Rainbow, a King in Checkmate, the Story of the Titanic, =? (not equal), x + 4 = 7, One Thousand, Counting by Hundreds, Reading 3:05 on a Clock, Rectangles.

128 pages, hardcover, non-consumable textbook with Smyth-sewn binding; students write their answers on separate paper. Answers are also included in the text and are written directly to the student.

    LOF exceeds my expectations!! I am so glad we decided to grab this series for a summer class. The confidence boost in our daughter is priceless. The publishers description is accurate from our experience.

    A MUST-HAVE if Math is any issue!

    I had heard people talk about LOF for a good long while before actually purchasing Apples.. I wished I hadn't waited so long because it has really helped my oldest son, who was having issues with Math. And.. since you do not write in the books, you can use them with younger children. We are now going onto Farming and going strong!

    I do want to add that we use LOF in addition to Horizons Math for homeschooling. I am not quite sure it would be considered enough by itself.

    Quirky and Entertaining, yet only Supplemental

    Introducing my young son to Fred and Kingie has been a delightful experience and he looks forward to his weekly adventures with the quirky duo. However, as I said, we only utilize Life of Fred once per week as a supplemental and fun aid to our normal routine/curriculum. It is not a stand-alone curriculum and in my opinion, earns its best benefit from intermittent visits to gain different mathematical perspectives and/or review. It helps relate math to daily life which I think is very important for young learners.

    My son loves this book! We laugh together at the silly things Fred and Kingie do, and we like how learning math concepts becomes fun. He looks forward to each new chapter, and is grateful that we get to leave the drill & kill math in the dust!

    I ordered this to see what its all about, reading good reviews about it previously. My 6 and 8 yr old boys love it! This book is fairly easy so far, (we're about half way through). But I can see how it is slowly building upon concepts and have no doubt it will get harder. It is an approach to math we have not encountered until now. Concepts are taught in story form, and very entertaining. There is not a lot of practice questions, so we use this as a supplement to our other math. But well worth the price, and we will be ordering more. What makes it different is that my boys dont even recognize that they are learning while they read, even I find it entertaining. Really fun way to teach math!
