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.

reading reviews seems to be a good fit for kids who enjoy humor but not school. For kids older than 4th grade it is recommended to start with Ice Cream and work up to get us to books.

Daughter and husband love the Life of Fred series. I bring a book every trip we take. It’s very portable.

My son loves the story of "Fred" that teaches him math. He was struggling with math when we left public school to start homeschooling. With LOF the struggle, pain, tantrums and tears are gone. Now they are replaced with laughs, smiles, and positive self-esteem. He's excelling, has caught up and is ahead of where he would be if he were still in P.S.!

Gave mine to a friend and needed to replace it. LOF is one of the best non conventional math curriculums on the market that makes math fun for my kids.

So easy to use and the kids love to learn from these books.

Great choice for out of the box thinkers or gifted kids

I bought Edgewood at Memphis HS Fair several years ago. Finally used it this year w/youngest who needed another math approach. Fred and Math are now his best friends.

We own the ones that lead up to this one and wanted to continue the series.

Math U See was no longer working for us. I felt my kids were getting behind, spending an entire year on one concept. This has such a variety of concepts and they are presented in a funny manner. I can't say my kids are math lovers, but it has become less of a struggle to get them to do math.

We finished the elementary series. It was so fun and gave us the "why" behind math

We started using LOF at age 6. The result is....we LOVE math! If you have a "natural" reader who would rather read a story (or be painting/drawing/crafting, etc) and cringes at worksheets, this program is fantastic, in my opinion. My now 4th grade student is handling division into 4-digit numbers with joy. If you order, definitely start with Apples as the story builds on itself.

Needed to fill out our elementary collection of Life of Fred books.

My son is dyslexic and traditional math curricula are torture to him. He understands the concepts but the procedures are hard to remember, and therefore quite frustrating. I have high hopes for Life of Fred.
