Professional Learning Webinar Series 

A Routine for Reasoning to Ensure ALL Students Are Modeling with Mathematics (General Interest)

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.

Presenters: Amy Lucenta and Grace Kelemanik 

Audience: General


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.

KCTM's Commitment to Kentucky Teachers of Mathematics:

KCTM is committed to providing professional learning opportunities related to mathematics materials, instructional practices/strategies, assessment, and research in a timely manner for mathematics teachers across the state. KCTM can work with member teachers to tailor professional learning opportunities in terms of content, setting, and time. Please complete this google form to indicate what topics you would like to see addressed, and you will be contacted to discuss how KCTM can address the topic.

What might these questions (or others from you) mean for professional learning opportunities:

  • What’s new in the Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics?

  • How will the new Mathematics Standards affect classrooms? 

  • What is the coherence between the new Mathematics Standards and the proposed Financial Literacy Standards?     

  • What does The Opportunity Myth say about mathematics assignments?

  • What is the 4-step investigative process for statistical reasoning - state, formulate, solve conclude? GAISE Report 

  • What is the mathematical modeling process? GAIMME Report

  • What mathematical content do students need to be college ready?

  • What's available in Instructional technology - free and easy to use?

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.  

If you would like to send condolences to Ann's family, please email Robin Hill r2hill10@gmail.com or Gloria Beswick grbeswick@aol.com

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.
