In this paper, two numerical methods for solving fractional integro-differential equations are proposed. The fractional derivative is considered in the Caputo sense. The proposed methods are least squares method aid of Bernstein polynomials function as the basis. The proposed method reduces this type of equation into systems to the solution of system of linear algebraic equations. To demonstrate the accuracy and applicability of the presented methods some test examples are provided. Numerical results show that this approach is easy to implement and accurate when applied to fractional integro-differential equations. We show that the method is effective and has high convergenc rate.
