Mr. Jorgensen

Howdy! Math is cool!  Think about it, what could you do without numbers? I am very excited to be a math teacher at Normal Park.  We will explore the world of math to the fullest!  I believe that working out math problems is a workout for your brain.  If you get smarter in math you get smarter in everything! In 7th grade we explore all the properties of negative numbers, proportions and linear algebra.  We end the year with an exciting regatta where students use mathematical principles to design a cardboard boat! I have taught middle school mathematics for over ten years now. I have a BA in psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I also have a Masters in Education from Boston College.
