Energy, Momentum, and Mass

Students examine data to find how energy, momentum, and mass are related.

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.

Signal and Noise: Cosmic Muons

In this introductory tutorial that, students learn about how to distinguish muon signals from background and instrumental noise.

Mapping the Poles

Students explore some basics of magnetic fields that can be related to experimental particle physics.

TOTEM Data Express

Use quantum physics and LHC data to estimate the size of the proton.
