Are you Smarter than a Crook?
Inspired by the game show Are You Smarter than A 5th Grader, students answer questions from 10 subject areas. Students have three forms of answer-assistance options (two cheats and a save), each available for use once per game.
Peek: The student is shown their teacher’s answer and may choose whether to go along with it or not; however, they must answer the question upon using this cheat.
Copy: The student is locked into using their teacher’s answer without being able to see it first. If the teacher is correct, the student is correct and advances up the money ladder. If the teacher is incorrect, the student loses the game.
Save: If the student answers incorrectly but their teacher is correct, they are credited with a correct answer.
If the student provides an incorrect answer (and is not saved), they "flunk out" and lose everything. They may choose to "drop out" at any point during the game, keeping the points they have acquired.
