This is the second book in the Life of Fred math series. (It follows Life of Fred: Fractions)
Unlike any other math series, Life of Fred makes math so much fun that it is almost irresistible. Using hilarious "real life" examples from the life of a five year old professor of mathematics at KITTENS University, students learn the WHY as well as the HOW of math.
