Observe Model Particles: US Pennies

by Frank Lipinski

"Experimental particle physicists look at data much in the same way that students will go through these exercises. While the subject matter may seem ordinary, students will find that the graphical methods used by particle physicists are remarkably effective at uncovering patterns in sets of data."

Bardeen, AAPT, Chicago, 2/2009

slide8

The Effect of Temperature on Conductivity

by Jeff Rylander & Phil Sumida

"This project allows students to experimentally discover the temperature dependence of resistance using a copper wire, a standard 1 Ω resistor, and a piece of BSCCO 2223 superconducting tape. Using liquid nitrogen as the refrigerant, students will measure electrical resistance over a temperature range from -196 °C (77 K) to room temperature, approximately 22 °C (295 K)."

How How We Levitate the Train?

by Jeff Rylander & Phil Sumida

"Students will be presented with a problem: “What superconducting material is best to use for a maglev train?” Students will discuss strategies for solving the problem, learn how to sift through

hundreds of data runs to develop answers, produce graphs that will lead them to their conclusions, present findings to the class, and propose a specific answer to the problem based on data."

Calculate the Mass of the Top Quark

by Bob Grimm

"Students use conservation of momentum to calculate the mass of the top quark. This activity examines the fingerprint of a top/antitop production . . . and will build on student understanding of vector addition and depends upon only a small amount of particle physics explanation."

Bardeen, AAPT, Chicago, 2/2009

slide11

The Quark Puzzle

by Eric Gettrust

“The motivation for creating this activity was primarily to construct a group of objects (puzzle pieces) which obeyed, as much as possible, the Standard Model’s rules limiting the quark composition of bound states, both hadrons and mesons.”

Bardeen, AAPT, Chicago, 2/2009
