    Bumping it because we just started this. Decided to do algebra and geometry at the same time.

    Oh nice! We also did algebra and geometry at the same time...and actually that's one of the Common Core pathways (integrated pathway) for secondary math, as well as the way it's taught in a lot of other countries, outside of North America. (algebra I and algebra II, with geometry in parallel with both courses, completing all three in two years, vs all three in three years, in Common Core)

    The Saxon-derived curricula mostly follow this too, through the 3rd edition. (Shormann is another Saxon-inspired curriculum.) Various Singapore-inspired curricula use the international sequence, and are in English (but British English, so watch out for some terminology differences--tripped us up a little on a placement test entering high school). There's also the Singapore version of ixl--I haven't used it, but it appears to have quite a bit of material a la Khan Academy.

    And fwiw, I know a number of people who were on a similar schedule for secondary math. Or even earlier. Have fun!

    In my mid teens, I attended our National Mathematics Summer School with the then 9 yr old Terry Tao. The experience made me realise that the right age to learn anything is when the individual is interested to do so and thatís how I parented my kids.
