    My daughter has really struggled with fractions; this book is really helping her! In fact, her younger brother looked it over and asked if he could "do it!" Excellent way to teach fractions...while laughing

    My son is working through the intermediate math books from life of Fred. He is looking forward to starting decimals and percents soon. My husband and I have looked through it already, and agree that it does a good job of continuing to present what can be harder concepts in a fun easy to understand package.

    I was reading through the sample for this book one night, and couldn't help but laugh out loud. My husband asked what I was reading, and couldn't believe it when I said it's the kids new math books for home school. When I gave it to him to read, his first question was, "is this math?", but as he read further he agreed that it was a good way to present math, give the kids some practice, and make it practical.

    Finally- a math book that is fun
    Dec 21, 2016

    My son has always struggled in math. Year after year in public schools, he met with failure and started having social and behavior problems in addition to his academic troubles. His self esteem was rock bottom- just like his math scores, averaging around 23% by eighth grade. Despite an IEP, tutoring, and special allowances- the curriculum remained the same. This meant he continued to be in the dark. After finally withdrawing him from public school, I came across Fred. I read through countless reviews- from both parents and students, claiming success and even entertainment. We were desperate! I gave it a shot. We have been dutifully completing an average of two lessons a day since May 2016 and have brought him from testing into 6th grade math up to high school algebra, averaging 90% and higher on his scores now. For the first time in my son's life, he is succeeding in math. His self esteem has improved drastically. He is taking school seriously and is working hard to catch up. I'm thrilled and excited for him. We always knew he had it in him. We just needed a method that would work for him!
