# High School Maths

Life of Fred high school maths will continue to take your student on a mathematical adventure with our hero Fred. The books build of foundations that you should already have.

However, if you...

1. do not have a solid understanding of fractions, decimals, percents and the other concepts covered in a traditional pre-algebra program.

2. do not like math

3. have used any another math program up to 7th grade level

4. have used Saxon Math or Teaching Textbooks up to and including the Pre-Algebra books.

We highly recommend that you consider going through the pre-high school Fred books. This will help prepare you to grasp the concepts in the High School Maths level books with far greater ease.

If you...

1. have finished the Life of Fred PreAlgebra books

2. have used another algebra program.

3. have used Saxon Math Algebra 1 and/or 2...you are ready to start the high school courses.

While

Like other upper-level courses, this one has "Your Turn to Play" sections separating textual chunks. Each chapter ends with six CITIES which your children have to master to move forward.

*Beginning Algebra*and*Advanced Algebra*should each take a little more than half a year.While

*Geometry*takes place during one day in the Life of Fred (a Thursday after his sixth birthday), it is definitely a full year course.*Trigonometry*can be completed in half of a year and*Calculus*(although covering two full years of calculus) will take one year. According to Mr. Schmidt, after this progression "you will be ready to declare as a math major at a university at the upper division level and take third-year (junior-level) mathematics courses".Like other upper-level courses, this one has "Your Turn to Play" sections separating textual chunks. Each chapter ends with six CITIES which your children have to master to move forward.
