# Shuffling the Particle Deck

Teams of students organize cards depicting fundamental particles based on their characteristics. This activity is a foundation for learning about the Standard Model and parallels the methods used by scientists to organize the elements into the period table.

# 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 â€œdegrees of freedom."

# Rolling with Rutherford

Students use statistics to make an indirect measurement they can easily confirm.

# Calculate the Top Quark Mass

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

# Calculate the Z Mass

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