The third book in the Life of Fred High School Series

Life of Fred is a series of math books that break the old pattern of drill and kill. Instead of nothing but dry exposition and endless drill exercises, they contain fun stories about Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters situations that call for solving math problems. Dr. Stanley Schmidt wrote these to make math come alive with humor, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that will make math a fun subject. Your children actually want to read these books. The stories carry on through the exercises, leading the student through them.  Many of the books have a series of quizzes called Bridges every few chapters. Passing a quiz means the student is ready for the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions. The textbooks are all hardbound, the answer keys are comb-bound.

This program relies on reading comprehension and thinking and is non-consumable. You will not find 30 problems on every page of rote spoon-fed learning that is quickly forgotten.  This is totally different, a new way of learning math, and everything you need is in the book. As a parent, you will quickly pick up on the novel way as you read along and learn with your student.  Books available for grades K - 12.

  • Writes opera! Almost half of Boat Ride on Lake Tiberius inside.
  • Buys Hecks Kitchen! With stainless steel bars and lots of heat.
