The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples
Following reading the historical development of the Standard Model, students view sample output images and criteria for identifying typical elementary particle tracks. Students then use links to OPAL and DELPHI data archives from CERN to attempt to identify and study the frequency of each kind of collision initiated event. Students should upon completion be able to theoretically and experimentally distinguish the various kinds of standard model particles and their properties.
Angular Momentum Experiment part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples
After reading about the historical development of concepts of conserved motion, students are directed to a series of activities to gain a better understanding of momentum, conservation of momenta, angular momentum, and conservation of angular momenta.
