Larry M Lesser
Professor, Mathematical Sciences

Statistics/math educator Lawrence (Larry) Lesser's teaching (in CO, GA, TX) is enhanced by prior experiences as a state agency statistician, full-time high school math teacher, and UTEP teaching center director. His statistics/math education interests include teacher education, misconceptions/intuition, language/ELL/culture, equity, and engagement. His research/scholarship includes 113+ peer-reviewed papers and books and has led to awards, service on 5 (inter)national research or editorial boards, and on elected/appointed offices/committees in national organizations, and grants (such as 2012-16 and 2015-20 NSF grants, for which he is PI). His teaching innovations have generated textbooks, invited plenaries at regional/national conferences, radio/TV appearances, and recognitions including: 2016 Minnie Stevens Piper Professor award, a 2011 Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award from the Univ. of Texas System, the 2010 Distinguished Teaching of Mathematics Award from the MAA's Southwestern Section, and an award-winner in several recent national education contests.
