I gave him a little bit of a caveat that the kids in the class probably weren't going to be like him; so, the material may not be in a way he finds ideal. It's a mid to upper scale private school that has their math broken up as math67, math78 (includes polynomials), algebra1 89 (which I interpreted as 13, 14; may be 12, 13 or ?)

The best experience for him is the only real concern. He did Hands On Equations last summer for a week and was in the 5th & 6th grade group (after a first day hickup) and that went well and we got a nice (and enthusiastic) complement from the professor afterwards.

I'm with ya, HK, I think I was hopeful just for the whole living vicariously thing.
