    More than Math
    Aug 11, 2017

    My child loves the Life of Fred series. The concepts are explained thoroughly in a fun engaging manner. More learning is packed into these books that just math; there are lots of good life lessons as well. The Bridge activities make sure the child is ready to progress through the book, so there is a constant monitoring of mastery built right in. Life of Fred dispenses with the drill-n-kill method so common in other math curriculums. I highly recommend this book!

    Goes beyond decimals and percents!

    This book actually covers more topics than mentioned in the title! It also covers the area of a circle/pie charts, dollars vs. cents, square root and more! This book is definitely worth the purchase.

    I bought most of the books in the series ahead of time so we have not started this one yet. If it's anything like the others my son will continue doing his math without a fuss. This curriculum has made my day so much easier.

    Real life math.

    Both of my boys like Fred. We all like how it shows the WHY of learning math and the HOW it can be used in the real world (and in Fred's world) instead of it just being a worksheet you think you will never use again in life and therefore forget it as soon as you are done. So YAY Fred!
