No cheating!

If we catch you Googling or engaged in other sneakery, we’ll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times:

Hadrons, which are composite particles made of quarks held together by the strong force, are categorized as either baryons (three quarks) or mesons (one quark and one antiquark). Scientists suspect that there are other kinds of hadrons, such as tetraquarks (exotic mesons) and pentaquarks (exotic baryons), but there is no conclusive proof.


Nice going, Eric. You're in.

Welcome to the winners circle, toothdoctor. Ten's enough.

Only nine, jchappell740. Still time to get in under the wire, though.

I count 11 good ones, viewmtn. Congratulations -- your'e in!

There are problems with six of those, jcchappell740, including one that's a spelling error of the glaring variety. You need to work back through the list and check very thoroughly. You can do it.

Good job, desk-bound parky. You got 11. Don't tell Kurt that I'm forgiving you for some missing designators (not to mention an errant apostrophe); the EIC says I've been grading too leniently.

Ten on the button, JanetinKY. You're in!
