Max Warshauer received his BA degree in Mathematics from the University of Chicago, his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Louisiana State University and is a Regents Professor of Mathematics, a University Distinguished Professor and Piper Professor. His research interests are in quadratic forms, analysis of algorithms, and mathematics education. He is the founder and director of Mathworks, a center for Mathematics Education at Texas State. He directs the Junior Summer Math Camp (JSMC) for middle school students and the Honors Summer Math Camp (HSMC) for high school students, coordinates teacher professional development programs for inservice and preservice teachers, develops middle school curriculum with colleagues at Texas State, and works on research projects related to these programs with undergraduate and graduate students. His current research interest is focused on research and development of mathematics education research projects in each of these areas. Dr. Warshauer teaches number theory in the HSMC each summer, an Honors Number Theory course at Texas State for undergraduates, and other mathematics courses in our undergraduate and graduate programs. He has coauthored papers about equity and addressing the needs of gifted students, analyzing lessons and the value of questioning, explorations using Geometer's Sketchpad, examining parallel sorting algorithms, and lessons for middle school math students.
