New to Life of Fred books? Here's everything you need to know: Change the Way Kids Learn Math – Use the Life of Fred Books

Life of Fred is a series of math books that break of the old pattern of drill and kill. Instead of nothing but dry exposition and endless drill exercises, they contain fun stories about Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters situations that call for solving math problems. Children actually want to read these books.

The stories carry on through the exercises, leading the student through them. Many of the books have a series of quizzes called Bridges every few chapters. Passing a quiz means the student is ready for the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions.

    We love life of Fred. It's fun and educational at the same time. We do saxon math as our regular curriculum and then we use life of Fred as a "reading book" at night. My daughter loves it!!!

    The stories are engaging and relate math to the real world. My son wants to be a mathematician when he grows up because of Fred!

    My son is a reader who now has a greater interest in math due to his exposure to these books. He reads them over and over again. He also comes to me with observations about something he has read and wishes to discuss details.

    Life of Fred is wonderful!

    My 11 year old loves this series. We started in the middle because his skill level was higher than the beginning books. But he loved it so much, we backed up and purchased the beginner books just to reinforce what he already knew. He loves reading them! We have also used the Algebra book from Life of Fred to reinforce our high schoolers. They use it as a supplement to their other Algebra textbook.
