How much maths has he covered already? This may be obvious, but you need strong skills in algebra and geometry before starting calculus.

It may be best to study a textbook rather than searching for a pre-chewed curriculum. Not only are good textbooks easier to find, but it builds skills for studying at college level.

Calculus For Dummies by Mark Ryan or Calculus Made Easy by S.P. Thompson and Martin Gardner are a good place to start for someone who is new to calculus.

See http://academic.cuesta.edu/acasupp/AS/704.htm for excellent advice on how to read a math textbook.

If there are things he gets stuck on (and there will be) and no one in the family can help, try the ask-a-mathematician service at:

Hope that helps,

Sarah
