Steven Lay is a Professor of Mathematics at Lee University in Cleveland, TN. He received M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles. He has authored three books for college students, from a senior level text on Convex Sets to an Elementary Algebra text for underprepared students. The latter book introduced a number of new approaches to preparing students for algebra and led to a series of books for middle school math. Professor Lay has a passion for teaching, and the desire to communicate mathematical ideas more clearly has been the driving force behind his writing. He comes from a family of mathematicians, with his father Clark Lay having been a member of the School Mathematics Study Group in the 1960s and his brother David Lay authoring a popular text on Linear Algebra. He is a member of the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences.
