I want my son to take Geometry over this summer
What does your son want?
The first day, students are given a large packet of math problems and told to begin. From then on, all they do is work on these problems, only speaking with the instructor if they have a question. Students are not given much freedom in the classroom, and although the work is straightforward and often boring, diversions are sometimes made in class and students may progress at their own pace.
Not surprisingly, Math Sequence has a reputation as the course students' parents make them take.
Note that at the last social, students who have participated in this course are often seen having emotional breakdowns over asymptotes. One should not take this course unless one has a strong grasp of reality, because after 3 weeks of algebra, you might start talking to numbers. It happened to me; after this course, I developed a form of synesthesia which makes every number from 1 through 99 have a specific personality, and zipcodes are entire pictures. Now I am a freshman in Pre-Calculus and the seniors scare me. Also, the test can take quite a bit longer than 2 hours. More like four. No offense, but this is a really boring class also.
The room this class was held in had a cockroach every day and dozens of bugs, immense thanks to Steve, our bug catcher (and instructor)! We learned a lot of math and how to trick people with cards.
Or your son can take a placement test to skip geometry. Just helped a girl to do so, now she does not have to take geometry and straightly go to algebra 2 at 9th grade.
