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.

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

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

Life of Fred is a phenomenal program. If you have any reluctant learners that dread and believe that they "can't do math", I highly recommend you try this program. The books are hilarious! The light -hearted approach the book follows has done wonders for dealing with math anxiety. There is something to be said when you hear laughter instead of complaints! My previously resistant student no longer is dragged into studying math, but instead looks forward to it.

My son is enjoying Life of Fred's pre-algebra series.

My kids are loving life of Fred, and although they may not work through all the intermediate books, they want to be darn sure they don't miss any of Fred's adventures. It's a weird reason to be buying math books, I know.

My son loved all of the Life of Fred math books prior to this one, so...

Life of Fred teaches more than just math. The author includes a variety of subjects relating to real life in a humorous way. My kids all enjoy every book he has written.

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 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 son just finished the Pre-Algebra 0 Physics and absolutely loved it. I'm buying the rest of this series for Pre-Algebra!
Emily W on Jan 25, 2017
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.

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!

What grade level is the life of Fred pre- algebra 2 with economics? Trying to get understanding of a child placed with me education level by the textbooks she has! Thx everyone

BEST ANSWER: Pre-Algebra in public school is regular 8th grade math. However, it's 7th grade math for gifted program and 6th grade math for advance gifted. My daughter completed LoF Pre-Algebra series while home schooling in 6th grade before entering public school in 7th grade advanced gifted math. I was deathly worried that LoF wouldn't have prepared her for the public school's rigorous advanced gifted program. She maintains a high A and is one of the top students. Because ,ath topics aren't taught in the same order as in public school, make sure to do the entire series in the LoF pre-algebra. LoF is not a perfect program, but an excellent one as a whole. My daughter breezed through LoF pre-algebra, mostly independently, with smiles and giggles. LoF prepared her well for public school's advanced gifted Algebra and because LoF introduced her to advanced level topics such as physics and economics, she participates in higher level conversations with her high school brother and me. Love this program and I'd highly recommend.
