the network for radical unschooling families
i have struggled with math most my life and have an A.S. degree. I took college math 2x and failed and then took remedial and did well, then I went back to take the basic course all the mean while having been diagnosed with a learning discibility. He may want to be tested for that and then they can accomadate him further. I passed with a C one semester and then an A another semester. He should get a teacher that has office hours and be able to take tests without anyone rushing him to get done meaning in a private room. Hope this helps. Realized this post is from several years back. anyhoo.

I'd suggest that he take remedial math classes at community college, if you can find something like that. It would be a review of all of school math, but not a rushed one. Kind of quick, but at a slow pace (if that makes sense ).
If he uses it as a summary of all of school math, not for "what he missed," but as a guided tour, kind of, of mathematical notation and concepts, that might be helpful.
