## Description

Is your child’s response to math lessons, “This is bogus! When am I going to use this stuff?”

The **Life of Fred** math books from **Polka Dot Publishers** will change your child’s mind and attitude toward math!

*No other textbooks are like these*! Each text is written in the style of a novel with a **humorous** story line. Instead of dry exposition and endless drill exercises, these books are filled with the **fun** and page-turning **tales** of **Fred Gauss**, a child prodigy math genius born on the western slopes of the Siberian mountains. During his hilarious **adventures**, he encounters every day math situations that call for solving mathematical problems.

Written by **Dr. Stanley Schmidt** with the intent to make math come alive with lots of **humor**, clear **explanations**, and silly **illustrations** that stick in the mind.

*Prepare your child for fun math adventures with Fred Gauss*!
