Life of Fred: My Daughter Now Loves Math!

by Kym S.
(Dover, NH)

My 6th grade daughter struggled with math. She is great at memorizing things. However, if we had vacation time or there wasn't enough reinforcement of a process and then reintroduced at a later time, she couldn't remember the steps.

Life of Fred changed all of this. She now "gets it". The continuing saga of Fred keeps her engrossed. The problems are based on life applications and because they relate to a familiar subject "Fred" she can relate to it.

This is the only program we will be using for my daughter's higher math. Each subject matter is addressed in one book. Again, giving your child lots of focus to learn one process before moving to the next.

It's wonderful! Even my engineer husband approves (which takes a lot of doing)!
