Event Description
Figuring Out Fluency in Mathematics Grades 4 to 8 - Georgetown, KY -Dee Crescitelli (2024-25)
In this new professional learning event from the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM), participants will examine what fluency is (and what it isn't) and explore how to teach and assess reasoning strategies critical for developing fluency. Fluency is much more than knowing facts and standard algorithms. Students in these transitional grades need to be able to use this knowledge for more advanced multiplicative and proportional reasoning. The facilitator of this event, KCM Director Dee Crescitelli, will teach participants how to enable their students to select efficient strategies and adapt as needed to persevere in problem solving. Participants will receive resources to support the teaching of fluency including Figuring Out Fluency in Mathematics Teaching and Learning by Jennifer Bay-Williams, a selection of companion books in the Figuring Out Fluency series, Cuisenaire Rods, and more! This professional learning event will meet for a total of 5 sessions: The first 3 sessions will meet in-person for full days, and the last 2 sessions will meet virtually via ZOOM for half-days. Participants are expected to attend all 5 sessions.  

COST: $200 per participant

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR REGISTRATION FEE
1. DUE DATE: Your $200 registration fee for this course should be paid by the course start date - July 22, 2024.

2. YOUR INVOICE:
A) KCM invoices are emailed to the registered participant only. The KCM does NOT mail invoices.
B) KCM emails containing invoices almost always go to the recipient's spam or junk folders, so please check those folders after you register for a KCM event. Please move any KCM emails you find in your spam or junk folders to your inbox and add the KCM to your safe contact list.     
C) You must give a copy of your invoice to the person at your school, school district or organization responsible for paying it. 
D) Anyone who needs a copy of a KCM invoice can contact the KCM at 859-572-7690 or kcm@nku.edu to request one be emailed to them.
E) Because participants may register during the 2023-24 fiscal school year, but this course meets during the 2024-25 fiscal school year, the KCM can change the date on any invoice if needed to be July 1, 2024. Please email the KCM at kcm@nku.edu or call us at 859-572-7690 if you need that change made.  


3. PURCHASE ORDER (PO): 
A) The KCM does not require educators to have a PO before registering for one of our events; however - many school districts require their teachers obtain a PO before registering. Also, some school districts will not pay an invoice that does not have a PO# on it.   
B) If your school, school district or organization requires you to obtain a PO, please email a copy of that PO to kcm@nku.edu, or add the PO# to your registration at the time you register. The KCM is happy to add a PO# to any registration if you obtain one after you registered.
C) Please note that a Purchase Order does not pay an invoice. A PO shows that the purchase has been pre-approved. The registration fee is only paid once a check is received or the fee is paid online via credit card. 


4) IF YOU REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE AND THEN ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND FOR ANY REASON:
A) Please contact the KCM at 859-572-7690 or kcm@nku.edu as soon as possible.
