Brianna-K. & Ennis H.

Our WMHS GX Champ of the Day
Was Nominated by Shannon Bundy
For the CTPS GX…
And our co-Champs are … Brianna Knox and Ennis Horozovic

The class was learning how to make ions from a neutral atom, and learning how to determine the ionic charge. I told them there was an easier way to figure it out than the way I was showing them. With a double-dog dare, I set the students loose to figure it out, and without a single prompt, Brianna and Ennis figured it out by analyzing the patterns in the periodic table, and by using the models they had created. By synthesizing the two sources, they were able to figure out the patterns so that they can now easily tell, using multiple pathways, how to determine the ionic charge of ions.

Congratulations to Brianna and Ennis, today’s GX Champs!
