Life of Fred Mathematics



picture of Fred


So, you think math is boring and there is nothing much anyone can do to make it "un-boring"?

You think the average person can't really ever understand math, and "Who needs it?" if you have a calculator in hand!


Think Again!!

Introducing: Life of Fred Math

Never again hear the question which many math students have: "When are we ever gonna use this stuff?" or "Math is boring!"

No other textbooks are like these. Each text is written in the style of a novel with a humorous story line. Each section tells part of the life of Fred Gauss and how, in the course of his life, he encounters the need for the math and then learns the methods. Tons of solved examples. Each hardcover textbook contains ALL of the material – more than most instructors cover in traditional classroom settings. Includes tons of proofs.

Written by Dr. Stanley Schmidt with the intent to make math come alive with lots of humour, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that stick in the mind. The student will learn to think mathematically.

Completion of this series prepares student for third year college math.

Title: The Life of Fred: Fractions. As serious as it needs to be... :)



IMPORTANT NOTE: These books are designed to make your child THINK! and to learn on their own. It does not give step-by-step directions and answers to every question. They learn to apply to current questions the concepts previously taught. Upon completion they will understand how math works, why it works, and how to apply it. They will know the formulas and how to apply them in real-life situations, not just situations created for a textbook. This program relies heavily on reading comprehension and thinking, not rote spoon-fed learning that is quickly forgotten. Parents can learn these novel methods along with the student, but should not try to integrate the traditional rote/memorization methods.
