I have a child that struggles in math but excels in critical & logical thinking. When enquiring with other homeschooling families this program was recommended the most. So we are trying it.

Our family absolutely loves Life of Fred. It has been especially fun for our son who enjoys literature and story more than math. The series is fun and yet still very serious about teaching the concepts well. The only thing that has been frustrating at times is that the answers are frequently on the same page as the problems and so to be honest our children have to very actively cover them up while working. That's a bit hard. Great series though - we have used 6-7 different books.

My oldest student struggled his way through Geometry last year, and never was able to complete it. I have LoF Algebra and it is such an easier way to learn math, without the teacher needing to be a math major.

My oldest daughter has used Life of Fred Math for 4 years now and learns very well from it. We look forward to another year of Life of Fred Math.

My daughter loves Life of Fred and has used this as her sole math program since LOF Kidneys.
Christi D on Jul 24, 2018
My son has decided he loves Life of Fred books, so we are continuing with this one.

We love Life of Fred. Can't wait to see how Joe reacts to geometry proofs!
Suzette P on Apr 10, 2018
These math books were the key to my teenager to finally "Get" math. She actually enjoys learning math for the first time since starting H.S. She has worked her way up to the Geometry from Decimals. All of them are amazing, I started with Apples with my younger daughter and she tells me all the time," please do not make me switch to a different math, I love Life Of Fred!" lol

Following the math sequence for my 9th grader.

We love Life of Fred's math series. It is fun, teaches beyond just a test question, and engaging. We have enjoyed several years of Fred and look forward to the next part of the story.

Looking for a short Geometry course

My son needed a geometry and we needed something to keep his interest so we chose this.
Michaele K on Sep 29, 2017
Have used LOF series for years. Its the best program and my son & I both really like it.
Heather M on Sep 13, 2017
I hope it helps us get through Geometry.

review geometry for my son

My son requested this curriculum. He loves LOF books--they are interesting and make application to real life situations come alive.

While home schooling, we used several of the Life of Fred books for math and language arts. My grandson decided to go to a public school for his high school experience. He is scheduled for Advanced Geometry next fall but asked me to get the Life of Fred: Geometry for him for this summer. When my teenager asks for a learning tool to use in the summer, I provide it!

part of co-op curriculum

Life of Fred works well with non-natural math learners. I have found that Life of Fred and Developmental Math workbooks work well together. Both are self paced, mastery based curriculum. Dev Math workbooks compliment Fred well. They give a traditional look to the end of the year portfolio alongside of Fred's outside the box style.

We like Life of Fred and are using it to add to our math curriculum.
Deanna B on Aug 14, 2016
Next in series that we are happily using.
Christina S on Aug 13, 2016
It looks like an intriguing and less- boring way to teach geometry. A dose of humor goes a long way.

Scott U on Sep 1, 2018
Several questions come to mind: 1. How long does each book take to complete (thinking specifically of Geometry & Trigonometry)? 2. How do you "grade" LOF since there aren't really any tests? 3. Has anyone gone from Saxon Algebra I & II to LOF Geometry and how did it go? Thank you!!

BEST ANSWER: You could score bridges but there is always a balance between diligence, aptitude, improvement and mastery. Stanley Schmidt (the author) gives some grading suggestions on his website both for "internal use" grading and transcript grading.
