Students analyze two variables; they calculate descriptive statistics, seek patterns, identify outliers, confounding variables and perform calculations to reach findings; they may also create graphical representations of the data.

Cosmic Muon Lifetime

Students learn how physicists measure muon lifetime.

ATLAS Data Express

ATLAS Data Express is a short investigation in which students inspect and characterize Z events in the LHC and distinguish muons from electrons.

TOTEM Data Express

Use quantum physics and LHC data to estimate the size of the proton.

Cosmic Rays and the Sun

Students search for a specific data file in the Cosmic Ray e-Lab and look for evidence of the passage of the sun in the flux measurements derived from this file. 

CMS Data Express

CMS Data Express is a short investigation in which students inspect and characterize W or Z events from the LHC.

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.

LHCb Masterclass

Students measure the D0 lifetime using data from LHCb, separating signal from backgrounds.

Plotting LHC Discovery

Students explore features of mass plots of a well-understood particle and apply what they have learned to plots from new discoveries.

ATLAS Masterclass

Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physiists to how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.

 

ALICE Masterclass

Students search for strange particles, produced from collisions at LHC and recorded by the ALICE experiment.
