Oh, her grades in both hover in the low to mid nineties.
I read something the other day, of course I'll never find the website again now, but it was full of literaure books on science. It suggested reading biographies of the great scientists and history of science. That might be a nice extension project for science? Just see what that section of the local library has that looks interesting to read.
WIth the math, I'd just keep going if I had a math inclined kid!!

I have an 8th grader doing the same.
For science I am gonna move here to a different type of science..ecology, intro to life science, intro to biology, perhaps an intro to chemistry.
For math I'm gonna move her to algerbra 1

I think I'd move her up until it was a point where she was having difficulties with the concept. Can you imagine if someone was contemplating whether or not you needed more lessons in cleaning the oven? Oish, boredom and revulsion would set in. But if you can get her to the point where things are getting tough for her, that would be the place to do extension activities.

I have the same issue w/ my eldest - he moves through at least 2 grades of math and science every year. I just keep him progressing. The beauty of HS is that he can go at his own pace. I use khan academy as a filler when needed as well.

As long as she's mastering the concepts and she's enthusiastic about moving forward, don't hold her back! One of the many perks of homeschooling!
