Great!
This is my daughter's first time using LOF. Very interesting method of teaching math, we are enjoying it!

We Love Life of Fred!
The Life of Fred Pre-Algebra set my favorite so far. (We have used all of the LOF math books up to this point as well.) Combining pre-algebra with other subjects is a great idea, not only because it makes it more of a real-life application, but because the student learns so much about the other subject of the book, all while practicing the foundational math to be solidly ready for algebra and beyond. I have been impressed with all three LOF pre-algebra books.

I like so many others have been skeptical of LOF How can a math book be so thin? How can a student get enough practice from 5 or 6 problems at the end of the lesson? So I tested it My son who is not particularly math inclined (his strengths lie in the humanities) after having finished Singapore's 6B switched to the pre-algebra LOF series He has completed all 3 books usually without any help from me Even though he seemed to be progressing well I wanted to test it So I had an old Saxon Algebra 1/2 (pre-algebra) test booklet and I proceeded to give him the tests- two per week- without any help or explaining He has passed each test with at least 90% accuracy (many tests he has aced!) My conclusion: LOF works as a complete math program!

We've started with Pre-Algebra 1 and are continuing with Pre-Algebra 2 and we have Beginning Algebra These books are wonderfully motivating to use although it's easy for my girl to get lost in the story and ignore the math Fortunately he wakes her up with the Bridge sections I believe that if you've used the previous books mathematically you don't need both pre-algebra books

My three older children all used Teaching Textbooks - which I love. However, because Life of Fred has such great reviews, I thought I would try them with my youngest son. Middle school math is so redundant, I wanted to try something enjoyable.

My son just finished the Pre-Algebra 0 Physics and absolutely loved it. I'm buying the rest of this series for Pre-Algebra!

My 12yo is almost finished with the previous volume, so had to order this so he doesn't have a math vacation;). Of course, he doesn't want one with these books!

My daughters enjoy using Life of Fred for their math curriculum. It's the only math series that they approve of! My oldest daughter is 14 and has been working through the pre-algebra books independently. She loves them!

We have just finished another LOF book, so we are continuing with the series

We take the summers off but this year we are going to stay refreshed with "Life of Fred". looks like the Pre-Algebra with Economics has some great things I would like to have my kids learn while staying fresh with math over the summer....

My son needed a shift from traditional math. This seemed to fit the bill.
Jacqueline M on Mar 12, 2016
My kids use Saxon, but we supplement with Life of Fred for additional information, extra practice and understand, and those times when we can't do a full math lesson, but don't want to completely skip math. This week is Thanksgiving, for example, and I needed them to still do math on Monday and Tuesday, but I couldn't help, because I was baking and preparing for the holiday. So, Life of Fred it is!
