Searching for Gravitational Waves in Noisy Data - A Classroom Activity

In this activity students will search for the evidence of simulated gravitational waves in noisy data sets. Although the activity's discussion centers on the science of gravitational waves, the method of data analysis that the students will encounter is used across the sciences.

Learning objectives, connections to standards, and classroom worksheets for this activity were prepared by Dale R. Ingram of the LIGO Laboratory.
