NGSS 1: Asking questions/Defining problems
Rolling with Rutherford
Students use statistics to make an indirect measurement they can easily confirm.
Making it ‘Round the Bend - Qualitative
Students explore the effects of electric and magnetic fields on particles.
Mass of U.S. Pennies
Students create and interpret a histogram of penny masses.
Cosmic Ray e-Lab
Students experience the excitement of scientific collaboration in this series of investigations into high-energy cosmic rays.
Calculate the Top Quark Mass
Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the top mass from event displays.
Quark Workbench 2D/3D
Students use Standard Model rules to build hadrons and mesons from quarks.
Calculate the Z Mass
Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the Z mass from event displays.
ATLAS Z-path Masterclass
Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physiists to how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.
