Category Description for Life of Fred:

Life of Fred (LOF) is an unconventional series of math texts that seem accessible and friendly, especially for students who dislike traditional programs. According to Dr. Schmidt, the author, this series is designed to teach you the math you need to know without repetition, redundancy, and a multitude of problems to work. LOF follows the storyline of Fred's life while incorporating solid math concepts and skills. Motivated or independent students will appreciate this series, as well as gifted math students who might need a challenge. Written to the student and intended to be self-teaching, the author prefers that students use these with very little help from you, so they can learn to study and understand on their own. Even the solutions (found in the text) are addressed to the student. In fact, there's a lot of actual instruction in the solutions, which students should read after trying to solve problems on their own. Math in a story context can sometimes make more sense to students than stand-alone math concepts - especially if it's an entertaining story! Students do two books per year up through pre-algebra; beginning with algebra, one book per year.

These are the best math books on the market for self learners who enjoy reading! Great books in our home school circle. Students often read the book over one weekend(obviously not doing the problems). The author has given us a source for DELIGHTFUL learning!

The reviews on it sounded like it was engaging and well-rounded for my senior daughter.

My homeschooler is not a fan of math and after the struggles we had last year with Algebra, I knew I needed something more engaging or this was going to be a very tough math year. I had heard about the Life of Fred math series making math fun so I thought I'd give it a try.

Is this 'independent study' friendly? It says answers are provided but not the solution? This is being considered for independent coursework.
A shopper on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Solutions are provided for all the lessons, but only answers for the tests.

Very happy with one caution.
My 18 year old has benefited greatly from this course. He said it is usable, enjoyable, and easy to understand. However, he has come across two inappropriate things in the book that i wish were not there. One is a pencil drawing of the back of a nude woman. It is as tasteful as it can be, but I would rather not have it at all in my teenager's math book. The other is a question in the one of the stories about exchanging money for sex. It seems like the book would have taught statistics just as well without these two items being included in the book. Other than those two items, we are very happy with the book.
