In Remembrance of Professor Ann Robertson

...
Ann Robertson, Connecticut College Professor of Mathematics for 15 years, died on Nov. 20, 2013 after a long-fought struggle with endometrial cancer. Despite her cancer diagnosis three years ago, Robertson, 70, retired just last spring, braving frequent long trips to Boston for medical services and the side effects of chemotherapy to continue teaching. As her...

Ann Robertson, Senior Lecturer, Mathematics

...
Ann Robertson received her B.A. from the University of Connecticut and her M.S. in mathematics from Trinity College. She joined Connecticut College in 1998 and was promoted to senior lecturer in mathematics in 2000.
Robertson's work involves the pursuit of connections between classical and contemporary mathematics, particularly in geometric issues. She is interested in the fractional dimensionality of Jackson Pollock's drip period, the symmetries present at the Alhambra, ethnomathematics and middle-school math education.
Robertson takes pride in incorporating real-world contexts and collaborative learning projects in her teaching. For example, she worked with colleagues in the math department to design a "Mathematics from a Cultural Perspective" course based on a modular approach. The project was awarded a 2004 grant from the Connecticut College Center for Teaching & Learning. This ethnomath course led to the development of her first-year seminar, "Fractals, Chaos and Culture," in 2006.
Robertson is a member of the American Mathematical Society; International Society for Art, Mathematics and Architecture; International Study Group on Ethnomathematics; Mathematics Association of America; Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honorary Society; Northeast Consortium on Quantitative Literacy; Lyman Allyn Art Museum; Newport Art Museum and the Wadsworth Atheneum.
She has presented several lectures and papers at conferences hosted by the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematics Association of America and the International Society of the Arts, Mathematics and Architecture, among others. Additionally, she has been awarded an MAA/Tensor grant for Fractal Geometry For Girls, a project created to design and implement a series of workshops for middle-grades educators and "at-risk" middle-school girls from Bridgeport and New London. Most recently, she has participated in a collaboration among Connecticut College, Trinity College and Wesleyan University to promote information literacy.

Ann Robertson
OLD LYME â€" Ann Robertson, 70, beloved wife of 17 wonderful years to husband Paul Thomson, who was her kindergarten classmate, summer friend at Hawks Nest Beach and later her husband, died at Connecticut Hospice in Branford on Wednesday, November 20, 2013, finally ending a three years-long battle with implacable endometrial cancer.
...
Ann was earlier predeceased by her Aunts Pat and Peggy who held a special place in her heart. Ann was born in Hartford, CT., the eldest child of William and Anna (O’Brien) Robertson. Ann was born in Hartford, CT., the eldest child of William and Anna (O’Brien) Robertson.
...
Ann loved mathematics, and was a teacher of mathematics and computer science all her life. She taught at The U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Mitchell College, the University of New Haven, but found her true home, teaching mathematics at Connecticut College. She joined the faculty there in 1998 and in 2000 was promoted to Senior Lecturer. A tireless and devoted educator, Ann took great pride in helping her students to appreciate mathematics from real-world contexts and in collaborative methodologies. She was particularly adept at assisting students who approached mathematics with some anxiety, to feel successful and competent. Her research interests involved the imagery, fractional dimensionality, and process, of Jackson Pollock’s drip period, and symmetries of the Alhambra. She was concerned that young girls were being socialized to be unsuccessful at math and started a project and web site for middle school math innovation through fractal mathematics and art. Ann was extremely interested in the craft of teaching mathe- matics, and presented several papers and lectures at domestic and international conferences. Her husband and family would like to thank the tireless nurses and staff of the Center for Hospice Care, 227 Dunham St., Norwich, CT 06360 for extraordinary care and devotion and requests that in lieu of flowers, donations to that organization be considered. The family welcomes all of Ann’s friends and colleagues to share memories of Ann at Byles-MacDougall Funeral Home, 99 Huntington St., New London, on Tuesday, 11/26/13, from 4 to 6 PM.
