Dear Lee,

Besides the suggestions that other T2T Associates have given you so far I can 
suggest some ideas that your son could do on the computer if the teacher 
allowed it. 

Shodor Organization
Project Interactivate
short description: These activities listed below are designed for either group 
or individual exploration into concepts from middle school mathematics. 

This is a collection of lessons that I have written for my middle school 
students. Many of them have "student" pages and might be appropriate to do 
individually. For starters, I would suggest:

Traffic Jam Activity 

Link Pages Using Ask Dr. Math Archives

Tessellation Tutorials

Polyhedra in the Classroom


Another idea would be to work through any of the archived Math Forum Problems 
of the Week:

If your son does these it would be good to point out that he should go to 
"Print this Problem" first. If after working through the problems, he would 
like to read through a suggested solution or any other information, he could 
look through that part of the archives. So, for example, here is a Middle 
School Problem of the Week:

http://mathforum.org/midpow/print_puzzler.ehtml?puzzle=102  (print version)
http://mathforum.org/midpow/solutions/solution.ehtml?puzzle=102 (archived 

I hope some of those ideas are useful.
