Teachers and parents love Life of Fred because it actually gets students engaged in learning math. Instead of the traditional "drill and kill" approach, Fred uses entertaining stories that kids remember forever. The author, Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt, developed this method through years of teaching mathematics in high school and college. Your children will never ask, "When are we ever going to use this stuff?"
