FREE Math Professional Learning:
KCTM is hosting and facilitating recorded NCTM webinars.
Professional Learning Webinar Series
Join KCTM Board members from 7:00 PM (EDT) to 9:00 PM (EDT) on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, as we facilitate this recorded NCTM session and learn with local educators. There is no cost to attend but the learning and math camaraderie will be priceless.
Modeling with mathematics is essential for ALL students and often difficult. It takes repeated and explicit development in inclusive ways. In this webinar, participants will learn an instructional routine that builds students' capacity to make sense of models and to develop questions to ask themselves when modeling, all while including designs for interaction.
No Registration Required. Simply use this link to join the meeting.
It is so fun to engage in discussions with other Kentucky educators.
We look forward to learning with you.
A certificate of participation will be available for those who attend this session. Professional learning credit is dependent upon district policy and approval.

In the early morning hours of October 10th,
the Kentucky Math Community lost
a dear, precious leader, mentor and friend.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Ann Bartosh.
Ann was a leader throughout Kentucky and the nation. She will be missed for many things: lifelong learner, champion for mathematics education, equity, high expectations and opportunities for all, her smile, her laugh and her keen sense of humor.
She had the ability to find joy and beauty in mathematics and in life.
Ann will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
Ann's wake is planned for late November. No other details known at this time.
Clark Legacy Center in Frankfort is in charge of the arrangements.
Online condolences can be left at www.clarklegacycenter.com.
