Accelerated Math creates their own version of "Spike"

The accelerated math classes made a life-size “Spike” to resemble the Corpse Flower at the Chicago Botanic Garden that many have waited 12 years to see bloom. The students made a prediction chart, and watched a live stream from the Garden of the large, smelly flower. Unfortunately, the real flower never bloomed, so the students removed the petals on their Spike, just as the Chicago Botanic Garden did. To emulate the smell that would have been present, teacher Trude Buchanan hid a small bag of rotting fish in the flower. She said it was not for the squeamish!
