Our family is crazy about LOF I purchased Fractions because my son was struggling with fractions using Math-U-See Three months later he is a fraction whiz and asking when the decimal book will be in There is little teacher prep: pre-reading the entertaining lessons and grading the Bridges Most of the lessons are self-taught Children are encouraged to be independent and not rely on the instructor or parent in order to learn Of all the money I have spent on math curriculums LOF has been the BEST investment

Better than a textbook
My daughters love Life of Fred! In each book, you learn a bit about Fred and all his adventures as he explains math concepts. The math is explained and applied in the story so you understand the point of learning it. The tests are short but not without a challenge. It proves that you don't need to drill with 100 problems just to learn a math concept.

Fantastic!
We LOVE Fred! The reason we learn math in school (or homeschool) is for the everyday application of math. Fred is full of that. There is no more "When will I ever USE this?!"

My 6th grade daughter requested using the Decimals and Percents and Pre-Algebra 0 over the summer, after a friend lent us Fractions last summer. She did around three lessons a day last time because she was eager to read the story. I got both books just in case she wanted to work quickly, or continue with Fred in the Fall. I think she would otherwise be unwilling to do math over the summer break.

love fred.. kids love it too.. fun and real life experiences make it easy to remember.

My daughter is more than half-way done with Life of Fred Fractions and she loves this series. I'm buying the rest of it so she can continue at her own pace. She is very motivated to do her best on the bridges and be able to move forward.

next book in our curriculum
KELLY O on Jan 20, 2017
My children did okay with this, but it is not comprehensive.
Ashley P on Jan 6, 2017
We chose this for its interesting format. The boys love it. However, in the high school years I went in with LofF but felt I needed to switch to Saxon because it was difficult to find the issue when my son got stuck and I tried to go back through the material with him to figure it out.

"Life of Fred has worked amazingly well as a math curriculum to help my son enjoy and understand math"
Chaun M on Nov 30, 2016
Life of Fred is a great way for those who love to read to learn to enjoy math.
Rais C on Nov 18, 2016
My kids love Life of Fred and his funny adventures. They fly through the "Your turn to play" questions and hardly realize they are doing math!
Jennifer V on Sep 19, 2016
highly recommended by fellow homeschool family
Melanie T on Jul 11, 2016
I like the story elements in Fred which make it more thought-provoking than many other math curriculums we've tried.

My daughter enjoyed the story that goes along with the math in Life of Fred: Fractions, so I am purchasing the next book for her continued enjoyment/learning as a supplement to Singapore math.
Alyssa G on Feb 10, 2016
math has been a struggle for my children and the LOF series seems to work well for them
Natalie W on Feb 4, 2016
We have done all the LOF books starting at Apples. We are almost done with Fractions so it's time to move on to Decimals and Percents. We love Fred :)

The purchase of this book is to continue with the Life of Fred book series.

rebecca l on Nov 29, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed using the previous 5 Life of Fred books and want to continue on. Life of Fred: Fractions is the book after Life of Fred: Mineshaft and this book is after Fractions. We hope to use Life of Fred all of the way through high school or until we complete all of the books.
