We recommend the following QuarkNet Data Activities for use in remote, online teaching. Comments posted for these adaptations, where appropriate, are accessible to all on this page. The activities appear in the same order as in the Data Activities Portfolio. We assume that teachers will coach students remotely and provide alternatives to paper-and-pencil where needed, espically when a combination of whole-class results is desirable.
Spotlight on QuarkNet e-Labs
QuarkNet has had, since the aughts, a platform that lends itself very well to online and remote learning. Well, two, actually: the QuarkNet Cosmic Ray e-Lab and the QuarkNet CMS e-Lab.
CMS Online Data Analysis
The QuarkNet CMS Ray e-Lab (https://www.i2u2.org/elab/cms) contains a large data set of events in the Compact Muon Solenoid detector in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and analysis tools for students and teachers to draw physical meaning from that data.
This note introduces the resources to help students and teachers use the CMS e-Lab and to find investigations they can do.
Spotlight on Remote Learning with Data Activities
The "spotlight" last week focused on a collection of resources for teaching physics during this time of distance learning. This week, we highlight a few updates and additions, including some specific data activities that can be modified for distance learning.
