My daughter (10) is really struggling with math. I actually heard the words, "I hate math!" come out of her mouth the other day, and it made me really sad. I've tried several different math programs, and we are currently using Saxon 5/4. I looked into Life of Fred this evening, and it piqued my interest. She loves to read, and it looks like a really fun way to learn.

My question is this--do you use Life of Fred in conjunction with another math program? Or do you just focus on mastering that one part of math at a time? She is proficient in her math facts at this point, so I'm not worried about that. I do hate to quit a book mid-way through ( I really need to get over that!), but I'm just worried that what we are currently using will turn her against math for good.

I thank you, in advance, for your advice. I'm looking for a fresh start or point of view for the beginning of this next school year.

Faith :)
