Mr. Jon Reimer

My name is Jon Reimer and I have taught math since 1988.  I have been with Widefield School District #3 for most of those years (13 years at Sproul Junior High-1988 to 2001).  Mesa Ridge has been my home since 2001.  I have taught every math subject from pre-algebra to calculus.  

I have 2 great children who both graduated from Widefield.  My daughter has chosen to follow in my footsteps and teaches geometry at Fountain-Fort Carson High School.  My son graduated from Colorado Mesa University majoring in Criminal Justice.

My favorite qoute about mathematics is by Galileo.  "Math is the language in which God wrote the universe."  I truly believe that humans have discovered math as a way to model and understand their universe.  I try to show my students how the math they are learning applies to the world around them.

 

 

♠  Be the best class/group member you can be.  You will be communicating and working with your team every day.  The more you talk and work together, the more you will learn!

♣  Do your classwork/homework!!  Students who consistently practice, think about, and complete their classwork/homework can earn an A or B.  You need to practice math to learn it. I will constantly remind you about this.

♥  Get help when you need it.  No one is smart at everything, and learning takes time.  If you get stuck, ask your group, then ask me.  I am here everyday before school, we have math tutoring everyday after school, and there are lots of other sources of help. Please ask, don’t wait until you are really confused!

♦  Come prepared.  Besides your classwork, you will need your 3-ring binder, paper, and a pencil to write with everyday.  Come prepared to participate, think and learn! (For a complete list of supplies for your class, see Parent Letter.)
