CLARK — The seventh grade students in Ms. Qualshie and Ms. Drasin’s math class at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark are studying probability, permutations and combinations. They have spent the last few weeks determining the probability of different hypothetical events, and now they are testing their theories by playing math games like ‘pico, fermi, bagel’ and examining real life situations. This will culminate with a final project that will require the students to choose a real life example of probability and elaborate on how it connects to what was learned in class. In the picture above Katlyn Ashley and Joseph Fagan use different strategies to choose the number that Christopher Jimenez is thinking of in the game ‘pico, fermi, bagel.’ (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
