CLARK — Students in Miss Faro’s mathematics classes at the Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark are enjoying the opportunity to teach one another in class. Throughout the lesson, students are often invited to the SMART board to display their work and teach the class the method they used. The Progressive Mathematics Initiative (PMI) program allows for students to answer the questions anonymously using their responders. Once all answers have been entered, students are chosen to walk the class through the steps of the problem. They are free to display any diagrams or computations that helped them to solve the problem. Students enjoy sharing their answers with their classmates, as well as stepping into the role of a teacher for a few moments.
