We have found this method for teaching math to engage our children and remove the angst that was brewing over math before we started LOF. We haven't found anything yet that we don't like about LOF, and we are currently up to the Intermediate Series with our oldest. The quirky story has been perfect for our boys; they've learned so much other than math even; they have learned things typically not introduced until older ages in traditional math curriculum; and instead of math being a collection of facts and equations you have to memorize, it has taken on a real-life purpose as they have seen Fred use math in everyday circumstances. I have no rating for support, because I have not needed to use it.

Story form makes learning math interesting, no endless worksheets full of problems, teaches much more than math facts, makes math seem applicable to life situations
