Currently he is 15 years old, and taking classes at the local community college. He just finished Calculus 2 and intro chemistry in the Spring semester.

The Calculus course used Stewart, which is not rigorous. But he had a good professor ( I had him years ago).

He will be taking Calculus 3 and Linear Algebra. Next semester.

I told him to drop the Calculus 3, and add the intro physics course. But it does not fit his schedule.

Anyways, he is considering architecture or civil engineering. He doesn't really change his mind much, so I think that it is highly likely that he will try to major in engineering.

Since I majored in Mathematics, I am not sure what classes or things he should emphasize.

I know besides, the standard math classes, intro chemistry, and physics. What other ideas or topics should he focus on. Ie important course loads to look at. Etc?

I will be making him go through Moise: Geometry or maybe Kiselev Planimetry.

Also, S.L. Loney Trig.

Apart from a good grounding in geometry and trig. What more is needed?

Is it possible for a dull major in civil engineering and architecture?
