The Big Bang Theory
Learners explore the Big Bang Theory and discover how it can be used to explain the origin of the universe. In this Big Bang Theory lesson, students use a balloon with colored paper inside, blow it up and pop it, group the colored pieces based on where they landed, graph the results and then analyze the distribution as they relate to the Big Bang Theory.

The Big Bang-Cosmic Expansion
In this Big Bang learning exercise, students are given the equation used to determine the rate at which the universe is expanding according to the Big Bang theory. Students solve 4 problems using this equation. They find the integral for time, they find the integral for the Inflationary Universe and the matter-dominated universe and they find the formula for Hubble's Constant for each of these situations.

Exploring the Big Bang with the LHC
In this Big Bang Theory worksheet, students read about how scientists simulate the original Big Bang conditions using atom smashers. Students solve 4 problems given about the Big Bang. They find the average collision energy of particles at that time, they find the number of seconds after the Big Bang that the particles collided with given energy and they determine how long it took to achieve given temperatures after the Big Bang.
