During the semester, Chemistry I classes compete with one another for smarty pants points. If they score the highest average on a quiz or test, or perform well in lab, or complete a challenge that I give them, they earn a smarty pants. The class with the most smarty pants by the end of the semester wins a party and a perfect score on their semester review packet even if they don't do any of it! This year's winner was third hour.
3rd hour - 9 smarty pants
6th hour - 2 smarty pants
7th hour - 2 smarty pants
8th hour - 3 smarty pants
3rd hour students Lea DeBoer and Kaitlin Block made an oreo cookie tower and snowman sculpture for a smarty pants challenge while 8th hour student Collin Sherer also made an oreo tower sculpture.
7th hour won a smarty pants for the best density column (Christen Swan).
