Why are the Life of Fred books so popular?

The books follow Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius, during his exciting adventures which encounter every day math situations. Children learn math in story like style and can’t put them down! The Life of Fred books were developed by a former high school teacher/college professor, Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt that developed the books originally for his own children.

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.

Readers claim there are four reasons to choose Fred:

  • The books are fun, engaging and the children almost don’t realize they are learning!
  • The Fred stories are clear and easy to read on your own. Fred books use the self-teaching method. (If your student can't complete a lesson on his/her own, ask your student to contact the author - Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt will respond!!)
  • The books are affordable. Prices vary from $5 to $40 per hardcover, illustrated book.
  • The lessons are comprehensive. Fred teaches more than math. Every book covers English, science, and real world situations.
