NGSS 6: Constructing explanations and designing solutions
Z Mass Spreadsheet Extension
Students use spreadsheet coding to determine the Z Mass for a large data set.
Research Using Coding
This activity provides techniques for guiding students doing an independent research project.
Students discover the rules of particle transformations using transformation diagrams.
Making Tracks II
Students analyze tracks in a bubble chamber.
Making Tracks I
Students analyze tracks in a cloud chamber.
CMS Masterclass WZH-path
Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physicists to learn how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.
What Heisenberg Knew
Heisenberg knew that, at the quantum level, we cannot know everything, at least not all at once. Students explore uncertainties in measurements of complimentary variables to find this out for themselves.
The Case of the Hidden Neutrino
Students use momentum conservation to examine the decay of top-antitop pairs to determine what is missing from the event.
Signal and Noise: Cosmic Muons
In this introductory tutorial that, students learn about how to distinguish muon signals from background and instrumental noise.
Signal and Noise: The Basics
Students analyze signals and noise first in audio and video forms and then look at signals and noise from physics measurements.
