Event Description
Explorations in 4th and 5th Grade Fractions

Course 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 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
