Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Robertson's Web Page!  

Have a GREAT summer!  See you in August!

  • Weekly Assignments for all dual-enrollment college classes will be made at the beginning of the week for the entire week so that students can work ahead and/or plan their week accordingly. These assignments are listed in the course syllabus.
  • Websites for extra help www.khanacademy.org and www.purplemath.com.
  • I am available every day after school for tutoring by appointment.  Please see me to schedule a time for tutoring. 

For the Fall semester of 2017 I will be teaching the following classes:

College Algebra MAC 1105 - 3 hours college credit.  Lake-Sumter State College has determined that all College Algebra classes are taught using the Emporium Model. Please see a summary of the Emporium Model below. 

College Trigonometry MAC 1114 - 3 hours college credit.  College Trigonometry is taught as a more traditional class with some online components.  Students are expected to read the text, take notes in class and complete homework assignments in a timely manner and be prepared for quizzes and tests.

For the Spring semester of 2018 I will be teaching the following classes:

College Precalculus MAC 1140 - 4 hours college credit.  College Precalculus is taught as a more traditional class with some online components.  Students are expected to read the text, take notes in class and complete homework assignments in a timely manner and be prepared for quizzes and tests.

College Calculus MAC 2311 - 4 hours college credit.  College Calculus is taught as a more traditional class with some online components. Students are expected to read the text, take notes in class and complete homework assignments in a timely manner and be prepared for quizzes and tests.

The Emporium Model

The emporium model of blended learning replaces most traditional face-to-face class lectures with collaborative, activity-based work done in a learning resource center or a shared student learning space (classroom) where students access the online course materials. Our classroom offers lots of connectivity–chromebooks, wireless connections, easy access to online course materials, flexible desk positioning etc.–and fosters individual and collaborative learning in its design. In transplanting the class meetings to this type of space, the emporium model’s learning goals include:

  • Encouraging independent student work (often with either instructor or other in-person support available in the emporium learning space (classroom))
  • Allowing flexibility of learning time: The learning process can be more fluid and allow for multiple learning times; in class, before school, after school and at home.
  • Fostering collaboration and activity-based learning amongst students
  • Making better use of shared spaces to enhance student learning and to rethink the efficacy of the traditional lecture-style course
