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.

Introduction to Coding Using Jupyter

Students will learn the basics of coding using Jupyter style notebooks.

TOTEM 1

Students use TOTEM data to determine if protons (quantum objects) obey classical conservation of momentum.

Particle Transformations

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.

Histograms: Uncertainty

Students construct histograms, identify the best value to represent the data, and report the uncertainty in their answers. 

Histograms: The Basics

Students build basic histogram skills required in many of the other activities in the Data Activities Portfolio.

The Case of the Hidden Neutrino

Students use momentum conservation to examine the decay of top-antitop pairs to determine what is missing from the event.
