"There are different kinds of hand raises too. If you are absolutely sure you know the answer, your hand goes up really, really fast, and really, really straight, as if fast or straight really matters at all. Some kids actually leap out of their seats to raise their hand - they think altitude is important. I've seen kids fall out of their chairs trying to get their hands in the air. But sometimes you are just not sure you know the answer, so you keep your elbow on your desk and pivot your arm from there, so your hand is half as high as your classmates'. This is a favorite way of raising your hand by cool kids who wear sunglasses to class. They even smirk when they raise their hand, too, to try and fool the teacher into thinking they really know the answer. I've even seen some kids just raise an index finger when they weren't sure of an answer."
