Life of Fred
Life of Fred books reach students like no other math books we’ve ever seen.
They feature the character Fred, who discovers all sorts of useful facts and
real-life examples, to demonstrate to the student how what they are using will
be a part of their everyday lives. For students who really excel at the
humanities (such as history, language arts, art and culture), but who struggle
with mathematics, this series is perfect! Life of Fred books use examples drawn
from the humanities to help teach concepts in a way that connects better with
these learners. But they're still fantastic for students who love math as well!
Each book is self-teaching, and the books are top quality hardcovers. A student
will not write in it - you’ll use and reuse these wonderful books! They are
comprehensive and later courses are written at the college level. Some books
have a “Home Companion,” which divides the books into daily assignments,
provides a full answer key, and additional practice for those who need it. Other
books have a “City Answers” answer key. What we love about these books is how
they use stories from the humanities (history, culture or adventures) to teach
mathematical concepts! But above all they are just a delight! Here’s what some
. . . On Saturday, my friend lent me her copy of “Life of Fred: Fractions.” That
evening after supper, I started to read it and giggled so much my [11-year-old]
daughter came and sat beside me to see what I was reading. . . . We got a piece
of paper and a pencil, and she wouldn’t stop until we had read five lessons. . .
. She said: “This is the funniest math book I have ever seen.”
. . . From the time I was in 2nd grade, I cried my way through math. . . Now,
here I am with your book. . . giggling over the story lines, working out
problems and actually “getting it” for the first time in my life!!!! :) And
that’s a very good thing since I am now a homeschool mother of 5. . . .
. . . Even my 7 and 6 year olds are BEGGING me to read the story of Fred to
them!!!! Enough so that they’re grabbing paper and pencils attempting to answer
the questions with their sibling so I’ll read more!!! It seems too good to be
