CLARK — In an effort to encourage hands-on, manipulative-based lessons, Denise Picciano’s 7th grade math classes at the Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark used VersaTiles to help practice their integer operations. VersaTiles combine the challenge of a puzzle with the purposeful practice of a workbook. Students were able to practice their skills independently and at their own pace, or to work with a partner to share knowledge and techniques for working with integers.
