Note: This series is good for homeschooled children, traditionally schooled children,

*and*adults wanting to relearn some of what they have forgotten about math!

We love Life of Fred at our house. Life of Fred is a new way of looking at math. This is a math book in story form. Each chapter covers a different concept, and reviews previous concepts. The books cover, in order, fractions, decimals and percents, beginning algebra, advanced algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and statistics.

Life of Fred is like one long word problem. It teaches students to take the math they’re learning and

*use*it in real life. Life of Fred’s author, Stanley F. Schmidt, Ph.D. says,

TheseLife of Fredbooks are designed to teach the material. They are not merely repositories of examples and homework problems. It is so important that kids learn how to learn from reading.

Once they finish college, they will face sixty years in which virtually all of their real learning will come fromwhat they read.

This exemplifies what these books are all about.

In my opinion, Life of Fred books make a great math supplement. I believe that everyone should use them. They make the student think outside the box. It makes math fun (he’s a very funny author). It makes you expand your thinking about math. It makes math relevant to ‘real’ life and uses applications not typically found in math curriculum word problems.

And, that is why I am giving away Life of Fred: Fractions. I will have it shipped directly from Life of Fred’s website. They are very fast. I have received my books within 3 days. If you would like to win one of these books, and have the chance to try them out for free, please leave a comment. I will decide the winner by random drawing in one week on Wednesday, January 28. Thank you for your interest.

I am planning on using this next year with my son. Looks great.

ReplyDeleteMath is my weak point. I am almost scared of it! I imagine that I'll pass on my poor math skills to my daughter so I'm doing everything I can to learn to appreciate mathematics!
