Life of Fred
Curriculas 5125
We bought life of Fred decimal and percents and life of Fred fractions. They had been rated so highly I was convinced they would be great. The boons gave one or two examples and moved to a completely new concept. Drilling facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, percents to fractions are completely ignored in life of Fred. You read a story that uses math, and answer a few questions related I. Each chapter. My daughter finished both in 3 months. She enjoyed the stories but it didn't reinforce the concepts needed. We went with rod and staff to fill in the holes before algebra.
