Prior knowledge for masterclasses / Classroom prep objectives

Meeting these objectives will assure that students are well prepared for the masterclass.

  • Describe the claim and indirect evidence in Rutherford's or another key experiment.
  • Identify the peak in a histogram and explain what it means.
  • Describe how quarks combine to form mesons and baryons.
  • Apply conservation rules to measurements to provide evidence for unobserved particles.

 

Suggested activities

 

Particle physics research requires the use of indirect evidence to support claims.
Rolling with Rutherford
Students will be able to:

  • Describe the claim and indirect evidence in Rutherford’s experiment.
  • Identify the peak in a histogram and explain what it means.

 

The Standard Model is the current theoretical framework for our understanding of matter.
Quark Workbench 
Students will be able to:

  • Describe how quarks combine to form mesons and baryons.

 

The behavior of particles is governed by conservation laws and mass-energy conversion.

Choose one or both:

Students will be able to:

  • Apply conservation rules to measurements to provide evidence for unobserved particles.
