Shuffling the Particle Deck
Teams of students organize cards depicting fundamental particles based on their characteristics. This activity is a foundation for learning about the Standard Model and parallels the methods used by scientists to organize the elements into the period table.
Quark Workbench 2D/3D
Students use Standard Model rules to build hadrons and mesons from quarks.
Calculate the Top Quark Mass
Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the top mass from event displays.
Calculate the Z Mass
Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the Z mass from event displays.
