NGSS 8: Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information
ATLAS Data Express
ATLAS Data Express is a short investigation in which students inspect and characterize Z events in the LHC and distinguish muons from electrons.
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."
TOTEM Data Express
Use quantum physics and LHC data to estimate the size of the proton.
CMS Data Express
CMS Data Express is a short investigation in which students inspect and characterize W or Z events from the LHC.
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 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.
