Life of Fred is a series of math books that break the old pattern of drill and kill. Instead of nothing but dry exposition and endless drill exercises, they contain fun stories about Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters situations that call for solving math problems. Dr. Stanley Schmidt wrote these to make math come alive with humor, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that will make math a fun subject. Your children actually want to read these books. The stories carry on through the exercises, leading the student through them. This program relies on reading comprehension and thinking. You will not find 30 problems on every page of rote spoon-fed learning that is quickly forgotten. This is totally different, a new way of learning math, and everything you need is in the book. As a parent, you will quickly pick up on the novel way as you read along and learn with your student. Learn . . .What it takes to run a shopping mall, How to ask for oats in Scotland, and the correct way to deliver flowers to a hospital patient. ...and even some algebra and biology. All fun! Just open & enjoy.
