Uhh, JayGee, it might be time for a preemptive meeting with the teacher. Maybe you could cast it as a "I'd love to meet you, and can you help me understand the differences with the IL educational system? I'm a little worried he might have some gaps in <extraneous subject>, and it looks like maybe a mismatch in math curricula might have him repeating material. Here are some of the things that DS was doing in IN." If (rather, when) that fails to kick anything up, then you can ask the teacher to pretest him on material, and find other ways for him to spend time when he demonstrates mastery of the material before the class starts on it. It might also be good to happen to bring along whatever achievement testing was done in IN that placed him in gifted. I hope, hope, hope you can get this resolved quickly. If not, unfortunately, several of us have experience in working with schools to have them, you know, teach our kids. I've got more ammunition that the above, but these are the first steps. Know that you should never say the word "bored" or "gifted" to a teacher. They seem to shut the conversation down.
I'd really love for my ear infection to go away. Just sayin'. I'm now down to no coffee after 9 am, and the next step is to whittle down how much coffee I consume before 9 am (it's embarrassing, really). For the first time in more than a year, I got light headed when standing up quickly, so I think my bp is coming back down.
Edit: Nemesis ~ I'm so sorry. :(
Snow, ice, and wind yesterday put me on the treadmill. 2 miles is my limit on that sucker. I finished off with some yoga. Long run tomorrow.
