    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.

    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!

    Life of Fred makes math fun!

    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.
