Explorations in 4th & 5th Grade Fractions: Hardin County, KY - Leah Dix White (2020-21)
12/2/2020 - 2/24/2021
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Description
Description: Intermediate grades are a critical time in which students are expected to develop an understanding of fractions as numbers and make sense of fraction operations. During this three-day session, teachers will explore instructional strategies such as the use of manipulatives, fraction models (including number lines) and rich tasks. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the fourth and fifth grade fractions standards, seeing them as part of a progression starting in first grade and continuing into middle school. Participants will be provided with a variety of books and manipulatives.

Cost: $300 per participant
Duration: 3 days
