I agree with JJ. Also it depends on what grade he's in. If he's a junior, I'd have him take Alg 2. College entrance exams, and even placement tests at community colleges will assume a basic understanding of this level of math. Everyone should take some kind of Consumer math, economics intro, business/accounting intro type math course too - those are real life math issues that no one escapes! If he's going away to college and doesn't know about overdraft fees, that can be a big surprise! Most consumer math courses will assume a good knowledge base in Alg 1 and Geometry exist, which is why it's usually good for either juniors or seniors. I've taught both groups, and usually the seniors appreciate c.m. in ways the juniors don't always care about at that age. Most c.m. courses assume the student is 11/12, but you can always put together your own materials too. I just found that 11/12th graders understood more about life, and therefore c.m. made more sense to them.
