Your question: Coupons, Discounts, Sales—Are we like Kohl's?

I did not write the Life of Fred series in order to make a ton of money. I did it to (1) teach a lot of mathematics and (2) to instill in my readers a love of mathematics.

A while ago I typed "beginning algebra" into the Internet and found:

These are tough times for many people, and I have priced the Life of Fred books absurdly cheaply. My wife has told me that I should double the prices and then offer 50% discounts.

One last thought . . . The Life of Fred books are not light weight mathematically. I know of no other home schooling math curriculum—at any price—that contains more mathematics than the Life of Fred series.
