Lawrence Swienciki (the designer and publisher for this group of math designs) currently teaches at the University of Texas at San Antonio and has a PhD in mathematics. "I'm a fan of participation. I like classroom interaction," said Swienciki. "When I was teaching at the high school, I would put problems on the board for my students to solve. Every student would participate. The students would solve their problems and explain to the class how they did it. It was a great experience -- one, I think, that helped the students develop strong leadership skills as well as critical thinking and analysis skills." - UTSA Interview with Christi Fish, March 24, 2009.
