Activities are based on techniques that physicists use to make discoveries. We have included activities that use data from LHC experiments and activities that help students explore the concepts in this experiment.
Z Mass Spreadsheet Extension
Students use spreadsheet coding to determine the Z Mass for a large data set.
Research Using Coding
This activity provides techniques for guiding students doing an independent research project.
Introduction to Coding Using Jupyter
Students will learn the basics of coding using Jupyter style notebooks.
Students use TOTEM data to determine if protons (quantum objects) obey classical conservation of momentum.
Students discover the rules of particle transformations using transformation diagrams.
Making Tracks II
Students analyze tracks in a bubble chamber.
Making Tracks I
Students analyze tracks in a cloud chamber.
CMS Masterclass WZH-path
Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physicists to learn how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.
Energy, Momentum, and Mass
Students examine data to find how energy, momentum, and mass are related.
Students construct histograms, identify the best value to represent the data, and report the uncertainty in their answers.
