If you are in Mr. Robinson's Economics class then you are in the right place. Welcome to our class website. If you use it, this website can serve you as an excellent resource.

The three most helpful things you will find here are practice tests, grades, and a class calendar.

You can take practice tests on the left by clicking the picture of the test . You can earn ten extra credit points per chapter for taking my online practice tests. Feel free to take them as many times as necessary to prepare for our in-class tests.

You can also check your grade in my class through this website. Just click on "grades" at the top of the page.

Lastly, you can check out our class calendar to see what assignments are coming up or what you missed while you were gone.

I will continue to add resources to this website as the year progresses (such as PowerPoint reviews, games, etc.) so please check back between each chapter. I'm looking foward to a great year working with you at Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
