Radioactive Simulations

Students simulate radioactive decay and nuclear power using an on line interactive web site. In this on line lesson plan, students monitor radioactive isotopes and record the activity of a particular element as the decay progresses. They answer 4 questions about radiation levels, emission levels and the risk of exposure. Students play the role of a nuclear power plant operator trying to make the most power without letting the plant melt down.
