Engaging in argument from evidence

Plotting LHC Discovery

Students explore features of mass plots of a well-understood particle and apply what they have learned to plots from new discoveries.

Calculate the Top Quark Mass

Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the top 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.

 

ALICE Masterclass

Students search for strange particles, produced from collisions at LHC and recorded by the ALICE experiment.

Calculate the Z Mass

Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the Z mass from event displays.
