Enter Life of Fred. Written by a Christian math professor, and covering decimals/fractions/percents through Calculus 2, Life of Fred is real math made really fun. And frankly, really funny. It's told in story format about the life of little Fred. Every math concept is made real because it is truly used by Fred in real life. And Fred has interesting adventures (he is, after all, 6), interesting friends, and a keen mind for math in any situation.
Life of Fred math texts are so inexpensive, that I am considering purchasing them IN ADDITION to Saxon (I'll get Saxon free from my mil) to use as backup for the math primed kids, and primary for the math fighters. I'd rather use Fred, myself, anyhow. I plan on going through calculus again with Fred and hope to make all those connections I missed in college!
