Explorations in 3rd Grade Fractions

Course Description:
  • Grade 3 is a critical year in which students should develop strong conceptual foundations for understanding fractions.
  • During this 1-day training course, teachers will explore hands-on activities and tasks aligned to the Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics designed to
    support students in developing conceptual understandings of fractions as numbers.
  • Teachers will deepen their understanding of the third grade fractions standards, seeing them as part of a progression starting in first grade and continuing
    into middle school.
  • Participants will receive prepared materials and manipulatives, including fraction squares, Cuisenaire rods and KNP-IG activities.
