    Entertaining and Good for Mom too!

    My daughter loves these books and so do I. We're both learning together and it's fun. The style of writing is engaging and I wish all school books were like this!

    Algebra scary? Not anymore
    Nov 15, 2016

    Algebra can sound like a scary dragon to kids who already cry through most math workbooks. This style of Life of Fred, and the brilliant package that pre-algebra is presented in makes my work as a home school mom, easy and enjoyable again. I love hearing my son laughing out loud only to find out he is doing math!

    We love Life of Fred!

    Fred has made math enjoyable at our house. I love that there is so much more than math to these books. We have gone on so many rabbit trails off of what we've learned from Fred which has really expanded on our learning. Even Mom is reading and learning right along with the kids.

    Great series!

    I bought the entire series for my Middle School math classroom, and I'm so glad I did! I teach 7th and 8th grade so I got the PreAlgebra set for my students to help scaffold them to the Algebra concepts. Wonderful resources.

    So far, so good!
    Sep 12, 2016

    My daughter has been enjoying the elementary math series of Life of Fred, so I decided to try the Pre-Algebra series for my son. We are using them primarily as a way to introduce the concepts before he does a more formal Pre-Algebra class, and for that so far it's been great. I kind of wish that the books were not covering the science topics as well, because I would have preferred to stick with the algebra without delving into the Physics, but I think as an introduction to the concepts they will work out quite well.
