Preparing for Success in Algebra is a California Mathematics and Science Partnership (CaMSP) grant. The program intent is to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics (grade 5 through Algebra 1) by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers through professional learning activities. Los Angeles Unified School District, Local District 6 received the three year grant through a collaborative partnership with the University of California, San Diego, the University of California, Irvine, San Diego State University, and the San Diego Mathematics Project.
