Most students who use this series are in middle school. While most schools teach physics in twelfth grade, these books provide a template to learning about physics before algebra is learned. Providing a fun integration of subjects, this textbook gives students a context that matters in the real world by highlighting the importance of math in understanding economics and beginning high school algebra.

Kids Are Asking For MORE Math!!

Life of Fred is new to our family of children who maybe don't love math so much. It has changed that so much that now I hear things like, "Can I do one more chapter?" and "I love math!" and "I finally get why that answer is the right one". It's been perfect for our family.
