  • Great book
    Aug 22, 2016

    I bought this book for my 16 year old to complement her Economics course, which we are doing next semester. She picked it up and started reading it on her own, and has really enjoyed it; she has even started saving money instead of making impulse purchases! The book is written in a very casual style, making it an enjoyable read.

    I purchased this with the intent to teach my children to be more money conscious. I read it myself and couldn't help being pleased and learning for myself. This book would have been nice to have in my youtj.

    I've heard a lot of great things about this, and we are planning on reading it as a family. Our 14 year old is even interested. I liked the thoughts behind the book, that while our goal is not to be wealthy, it's to be happy, having less stress due to money is great, and money can bring fun adventures. I loved that way of looking at money. I'd rather my kids be happy than financially successful, but if they could be both, that would be wonderful.

About the Seller
474 Reviews

The Life of Fred contains fun stories about a child prodigy math genius your students can follow along as he gives real-world examples of everything from math to language arts. In the Life of Fred Elementary Math Series, your students will learn everything from telling time, division, beginning algebra, and more!


You can purchase one book at a time or the entire set at a discounted price! Order more as their skills progress such as the Life of Fred Intermediate Series that incorporate biology, physics, and economics using pre-algebra formulas.


The stories carry on through the exercises, and many of the books have a series of quizzes that bridge them to the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions.

Written by Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt, these affordable books were designed to keep your students engaged in math while also following along a storyline. Perfect for independent study, each unit teaches concepts that can be applied using real-world examples. Find out more by reading this blog post!
