Event Description
Explorations in 3rd Grade Fractions - Lexington, KY - Lisa Riggs (2024-25)
Grade 3 is a critical year in which students should develop strong conceptual foundations for understanding fractions. The KCM invites all math educators who work with 3rd grade math students to join us in one of our most popular and impactful courses.  
During this 1-day, in-person professional learning event, facilitated by KCM Regional Consultant Lisa Riggs, participants will:
1. 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. 
2. 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.
3. Receive prepared materials and manipulatives - including fraction squares, Cuisenaire rods and KCM designed activities.

COST: $100 per participant
DATE: Tuesday, January 14, 2025; 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Eastern

1. DUE DATE: Your $100 registration fee for this course should be paid by the course start date - January 14, 2024.

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 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 or call us at 859-572-7690 if you need that change made.  

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, 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. 

A) Please contact the KCM at 859-572-7690 or as soon as possible.
B) Contact your employer and notify them that you are unable to attend. The KCM encourages your school, school district or organization to send someone to attend in your place as your registration fee will not be waived or refunded once materials have been ordered for you.
