Life of Fred Elementary Physics (Math) USED
Life of Fred Elementary Physics. First book in the Life of Fred Pre-Algebra "Getting Ready for High School Math" Series which is designed for students who have completed the elementary, intermediate, and arithmetic series books. Most students who use this series are in middle school. While most schools teach physics in twelfth grade, this age-appropriate book provides a template to learning about physics before algebra is learned; it should be used before the (sold-separately) texts Pre-Algebra 1 with Biology and Pre-Algebra 2 with Economics.
Life of Fred is a unique, complete (not supplemental), math program that uses a highly engaging narrative to teach math without fear and with enjoyment. Students follow the life of Fred Gauss (a math professor who grows up to the age of six), who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures over the course of the curriculum. Math becomes relevant and important because the need for math occurs in Fred's life (and he sees math everywhere). Witty and truly entertaining, these books will engage students in a way unlike any other math program - --while also instilling a solid understanding of the principles of mathematics without an abundance of repetitive drills. This series is perfect for inquisitive students who struggle with the relevance of math, or anyone looking for a creative approach to mathematic thinking!
