Math Series A – Life of Fred Math – Now Online


For ages 4 through beginning college.

This math series was our first choice when we looked at curriculums for the school.

It is durable and reusable. The books are hardback and can be used over and over for all your children as problems are done on paper, not in the books.

Even so, we suggest ebay and other sources of used materials. Frugality is almost always a good thing.

If your child needs more work in a particular area, there are additional volumes available for some of the courses where more problems may be found.

Also, there is much more information in the lessons than just math. The author gives his opinions and strives to increase the general knowledge of his students. Sometimes this may conflict with a parent’s sensitivities. However, we found it very refreshing and good. He often gives a sneak preview of something in a course several courses ahead, just to begin to familiarize his students with an idea. A good pedagogical technique.

Another reason we chose Life of Fred is that it is seamless from early elementary through college, something not to be found in other math series.

Beehive and Ascent Advantage Academy math teachers also cover the full gamut of courses – in case you or your student needs a bit of coaching.

Courses include:

400 – The First Half is our introduction to Mathematics which precedes what is offered in Life of Fred. The second half begins a gentle entry into the Life of Fred world.
