    My daughter has just started this book, we are on Chapter 3, and she is actually dialoguing with me about finances and life skills. Way to Go Fred!!! Thanks for helping to open the communication between real life and math!

    All four of my teens have jobs; a couple of them their own businesses. This book is REALLY going to help them with the financials. I wish more teens would know about this; I'll be recommending it to everyone I know.

    I was looking at a different book on finances for my kids, but since they love Life of Fred Math and Language Arts, I got this to add to our set. It is perfect, even a good reminder for me about handling finances :o)

    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.

About the Seller

Life of Fred - Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt
824 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!
