We switched to this from a more traditional math because it was a daily fight to get math done, complete with tears. As soon as we tried Life of Fred my son begged me to do "just one more chapter, please!" after every lesson.

We have done Apples-Mineahaft so far so I can't speak to the older levels but they are already introducing kids to advanced algebra concepts typically taught in algebra 2. It boots my son's confidence to know he knows how to do something kids several grades higher than him are learning.

The biggest negative is sometimes I have to look at an answer in order to explain how to solve a problem.

If you have a child who hates math give Fred a try, it just might surprise you.
