3.  Offers a Looking Forward to the two years of calculus and examines each of the 24 chapters in Life of Fred: Calculus and describes what parts of high school math will be required.  It provides exercises for each of the topics.

     If you know Fred, you know how much of that he ate.

 

     On the sixth page we define the first trig function: the sine function. 

    By the third chapter, Fred is involuntarily in the only boxing match of his life.  His 37 pounds are matched up with someone slightly larger than he is.


 

 

 

    Fred had prepared for the fight by having saltimbocca for breakfast.
