In this Big Bang Theory activity, learners 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.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver for me, especially when I am in a time crunch and need a resource quickly. While I consider myself a very creative person, sometimes I need to utilize the great ideas of fellow teachers to get my creative juices flowing. Lesson Planet has been pivotal in this regard.
