Hi! My name is Hal Weinstein. I am a Mathematics Teacher at Hunter College High School . I grew up in Co-op City, and graduated from The Bronx High School of Science in 1979. I received my BA in Mathematics from Queens College in 1983, and my MA in Mathematics Education from City College in 1989.
In addition to my interest in mathematics and computers, I enjoy bicycle riding, bodybuilding, hiking, listening to music, playing the piano, rock collecting, and spending time with my family, friends and dog.
