Stephen Lancaster

Hi.  My name is Stephen Lancaster.  I have been a professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mt. SAC since 2011. I enjoy hiking and working at my family’s ranch in Oklahoma. I have published a chapter in an International Statistics Education text, co-writing the chapter Teachers’ Attitudes Towards Statistics with Spanish University Professors Assumpta Estrada and Carmen Batanero.


I am so excited that you have decided to take Elementary Statistics or Elementary Statistics with Support ! Your success is important to me, so to help prepare you for the next part of your educational journey, I would like to share some information with you about my courses and classroom environments.

        Class Structure:
        This is a corequisite class, which means there is an extra 2 unit portion designed to give extra support in various aspects of the class. We will be using Canvas courses for both Math 110 and Math 11.
        My class is an asynchronous hybrid, which means we will meet on-campus on Wednesdays and you will work independently the rest of the week. All exams will be conducted on-campus, in a traditional classroom setting. Course materials, including lecture notes and professor's lecture videos, will be provided on Canvas every Wednesday.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge that Mt. SAC is geographically situated on the traditional lands of the native, indigenous peoples whose land was taken from them. I ask you to join me in acknowledging their community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. May we strive to honor the land and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and via Zoom sessions and email. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.


The Math and Computer Science Department is committed to helping our students achieve their math educational goals. We want you to succeed and excel in transfer-level mathematics. We recognize your potential and are here to support you! Whether you are here to obtain a degree, complete transfer requirements, or simply expand your knowledge, we will strive to provide resources that you may need along your journey. Explore the resources below for more information on how our campus can help you achieve your educational goals.
