Suggestions on how to be an effective Masterclass moderator:
You might know most of this already...but we still need to remind ourselves. Please send in items to add to this list.
- Speak clearly and succinctly
- Show your sense of humor
- Avoid too many explanations: draw ideas from students and then help them
- When you do explain, keep it short and direct
- Encourage students to speak up, give their views, and back them up
- Mind the schedule
- Be friendly
- It is alright to disagree...with mentors, students, or each other
- Let students get a feel for how you see data and analysis
- Be familiar with the Masterclass measurement
- Show your enthusiasm
- Work as a team
Ask these questions of the students:
- Where are the peaks in the Mass Histogram? What do they represent?
- Where is Z boson in the plot? What are the other peaks, then?
- Do you have possible Higgs events in your plot? Where? Can we claim discovery?
- (CMS only) What do you expect the ratio of electron events to muon events to be? Is your result consistent with this?
- (CMS only) What is the ratio of W+ to W- bosons? What does this ratio tell us about protons?
