Life of Fred Pre-Algebra Course

Once you know:
 i) the addition tables (What's 5 + 8?)
ii) the subtraction tables (What's 8 - 5?)
iii) the multiplication tables (What's 7 times 8?)
iv) long division (What's 6231 divided by 93?) are ready to start Life of Fred Fractions, the first book in the Pre-Algebra series. This book goes far beyond basic fractions so you probably do need it even if you have already learned a bit about basic fractions.
