Developing and using models

Cosmic Muon Lifetime

Students learn how physicists measure muon lifetime.

Dice, Histograms & Probability

Students roll dice, record the resulting individual values as well as the sum of the values, create histograms of the data and develop insight into the concept of “degrees of freedom." 

Quark Workbench

Students use Standard Model rules to build hadrons and mesons from quarks.
