The Boy is 5. He's been able to count since before he could talk (he pointed to numbers in a book) and he's now doing the following:
I'd like to help The Boy avoid my horrible fate. To that end, I have decided to fire his teacher and take over his math education myself. I think he's smarter than I was, and there's no point in having him spin his wheels for a few years the way I did. It doesn't relax you, it dulls you.
Even though I went to lol school, I still remember some math. But it would be nice to remember/learn a bit more. I'm soliciting recommendations for texts for:

- Addition and subtraction of up to four terms of four digits on paper
- Mental addition and subtraction of two terms, 0-100
- Memorized times tables to 10x10 with corresponding whole-number division
- Multiplication of up to four digits x 1 digit on paper

- Pre-Calc (I still remember the operations and identities and whatnot, but I have no idea how to teach them)
- Elementary Calc (AP AB and BC level)
- First couple of years of college math - elementary calc with proofs, linear algebra, vector calc, differential equations
