*The Winning Equation*is a California state approved in-service
training for grade 4-7 teachers meeting the requirements of
Assembly
Bill 1331. It was developed and submitted to the California State Board
of Education by the Curriculum and Instruction Steering Committee
of the California County Superintendents Educational Services
Association, and later revised and improved by the L.A. County Office
of Education.

The training is intended to provide an in-depth understanding of the mathematics behind the California mathematics standards for grade 4-7 Teachers. It can be of benefit to teachers of lower and higher grades as well.

*The Winning Equation*modules require an overhead projector,
and
they are easy to use. The slides are generally self-explanatory
and
develop their respective topics coherently and gradually.
Instructors
need only project them in order, comment on them, and use them to
stimulate classroom discussion. The facilitator notes are
generally
not needed, but they are available to assist instructors. Work
sheets
have labels like H-2, H-20, etc. "H" stands for "Handout" and "T"
stands for "Transparency."
