CLARK — Students in Michelle McGeehan and Nicole Drasin’s eighth grade math class at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark are thrilled to be using the school’s newly adopted program, the “Progressive Math Initiative.”
This program is centered around the SMART board and SMART responders. The students are able to input their answers to questions into the responders, which look like miniature remote controls. This allows the teachers to see each student’s answer on their computer to see how well the students are doing. The eighth graders are currently studying transformations with 2-D geometry, and are constantly engaged through the use of the new technology.
