Explorations in 4th and 5th Grade Fractions: IN-PERSON Elizabethtown, KY cohort - Dee Crescitelli (2021-22)
10/25/2021 - 1/19/2022 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Explorations in 4th and 5th Grade Fractions
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 course, 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 Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics, particularly the grades 4 and 5 fractions standards for number and operation, 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/participant Duration: 3 in-person days Location: Hilton Garden Inn - Elizabethtown, KY
