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

Reading Momma2 Stars Out Of 5Good Book, but didn't need "Marijuana Farming" referenceJanuary 20, 2017Reading MommaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1This is an very unique way of teaching math, and I applaud the author's creativity. I have children who love to read, and love to ask questions. Fortunately, I read this book first. My 1st & 4th graders would be asking lots of questions about what is "farming marijuana" on page 99. The answer as to what the drawback to this occupation is "It's illegal." Unfortunately, not anymore, in all states. I have many more reasons why my children shouldn't aspire to this occupation, but don't want to explain at this age. I wish the author had kept the age/maturity of his audience in mind.
Kijabemama5 Stars Out Of 5We love Life of FredOctober 30, 2015KijabemamaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been homeschooling my children for several years. We've tried many math curriculums. When it came time for math it was always a battle...until we discovered Life of Fred. Now my children actually enjoy it and have commented more than once that things actually make sense.
