Mr. David Jung (Pronounced Young)

I graduated from Wichita State University with my Bachelor's and UCCS with my Master's. After my bachelors, I taught for three years in Topeka, KS. I joined the Horizon team in the summer of 2014 and am excited to be working in the beautiful state of Colorado. 
  
When I have downtime I enjoy playing saxophone, guitar, and any other instruments I can find. I also like to spend time on the disc golf course. It's hard to squeeze all of that in while fishing, hiking, and spending quality time with my pup, Leo. Despite the, at times, hectic schedule, I love my work/life balance and the impact I get to try to have on my community. Go Panther family!!

Algebra and 7th Math Honors

  • To access student materials:

    • Students, log on to Clever and then click on the desmos app

    Homework is assigned throughout the week and is due the day after it is assigned. Points are given at the beginning of each week for a possible total of 10 points per week. If a student does not complete their assigned daily work, they will receive a 2 point deduction. This method is used to ensure that students are getting pracitice in a timely manner, and I am able to help students go over problems that were difficult or misunderstood in real time. To recover some of the points for missing homework, students can complete a comprehensive review before the unit test and must show all of their work. Once a unit is complete, scores cannot be recovered. 


Pre-Engineering (6th Grade)

  • This class focuses on introducting students to the design process of engineering as defined in the PLTW curriculum. In addition to engineering concepts, students are introduced to the school greenhouse and take part in planting, cultivating, and maintaining the greenhouse. Students will also be afforded opportunities to take part in service activities to help keep our school and grounds in good shape, cultivating a sense of pride in our school, community, and environment. All classwork is assigned through google classroom, with scores being available there as well as on PowerSchool. Students can make up missing work by completing it on google classroom and submitting or resubmitting the assignments. Late work will be accepted until the end of the unit, however points cannot be recovered once the unit is complete. 

    Projects include: designing a garden or greenhouse; creating a service plan; learning how to safely use tools and equipment available for use.
