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.
