Higher math = Life of Frustration
This series is meant to be The Teacher and would be effective to that end providing your student is a self starter and is motivated to dig a little until he finally gets the concepts (himself). Mine wasnt. Algebra I challenged him (us), and the instructions as laid out were insufficient and left too many questions. Teen hormones and high levels of frustration left us with many long sessions ...and tears. One of my huge problems with this text was that the answers were right there!! Way too much time was spent taping blank pages over the adjacent solutions. Three lessons into Algebra II made it abundantly clear that this is not the path for us to continue in my son's math lessons - he needs an instructor.
We loved LOF for his middle school years, but I would have to say it is not OUR preference for higher math. I hope to return Alg II.

We LOVE Fred!
Life of Fred is a great program! My son and daughter have regained their confidence in math after using this program when another program made them feel like they couldn't do well in math. I love that there is practice from previous lessons in every lesson without having a lot of problems to weigh the student down.

I love Life of Fred. It works for my reluctant mathmetician as well as my advanced mathmetician. It covers content thoroughly and in deeper depth than many other programs. It can be tricky to transition to LoF from other programs because your student will have gaps that need to be filled in, but it is well-worth it.

Life of Fred Algebra
We love Life of Fred Math! Our daughter started with Fred in her 5th grade year, she is now in 9th grade. She started before his Elementary Series were written. She has completed Fractions, Decimals & Percents, Pre-Algebra 1 & 2, Beginning Algebra and she is finishing up Advanced Algebra this year. "Fred's" teaching approach is a perfect fit for her. They are "thinking books" though, not "math memorization" books. They also are student driven books, not mom taught. Both the Life of Fred Algebra books are advanced material. I have found online resources that are college level that cover the same thing as in Life of Fred Beginning Algebra and Advanced Algebra.

My son loves Life of Fred!

Excellent to learn concepts and understand the why. Easy for kids and they learn mostly by themselves because it is interesting for kids.

This series claims to explain the "why" of math. I hope this will help my son understand the importance of math and stop claiming that he will "never use any of this again."

While we don't need this book at the moment, we will in the near future so I purchased it along with my order. My children really enjoy the Life of Fred books & we're going strong all the way though high school!

This series has helped my daughter understand math, its not outrageously priced. This book makes math time easier for us.
Amy L on Sep 20, 2018
I've done a lot of research on this program and thought I'd give it a try since I wasn't having to invest a lot of cost to see how the Life of Fred program works for my students. It sounds like a lot of fun and math certainly could use more fun.
Bethany P on Aug 15, 2018
My daughter completed all the pre-algebra and beginning algebra books and is looking forward to continuing with the advanced material. Being an independent study student, we find LOF books a perfect complement to her education.
Toni D on Jul 25, 2018
We used Life of Fred Algebra and my daughter self taught through that book. It's also cheaper than a video and she liked it as far as math books go. Wanted to continue using this as a math curriculum.

Fun math
Neicha M on Mar 27, 2018
as reading material to supplement our current Algebra/Trig Book
Rozana K on Feb 18, 2018
I am always impressed with the depth and breadth of this curriculum. Don't let the fun nature and low count of problem sets scare or put you off. The author understands how children learn and remember things, and he uses that knowledge to teach math in the most creative way. We started L.O.F. when my daughter first started high school. We started with Kidneys and for all the books she was to complete two lessons/day. LOF has helped us to catch up and there are no more tears in our home.

My daughter struggled with Saxon and thought we'd try something new.

Continuing Life of Fred series for high school
Jeanette C on Jun 13, 2016
We are new to homeschooling starting our son his sophomore year, we have already purchased the Life of Fred Chemistry and language arts books and our son was very interested in going through the math books as well. He is interested in engineering so will need to go through calculus and physics.
Deborah H on Apr 24, 2016
My children have used this math for years.
