Subject: Is Geometry the first Inspirational Math class?

While looking for information on another subject I noticed the "geometry-precollege" forum and recalled that it was the first class to get cause me excitement about mathematics.

Do we still wait until the 9th or 10th grade until we show students a problem that can't be solved by a hand calculator?

The magic to high school geometry seems to be that it shows that creativity is a huge part of math, while even high school calculus seems to do the opposite.

Sorry if this is a bit off topic.

best regards,
