The Nucleus / Nuclear Reactions and Elementary Particles

Students describe how radioactivity relates to alpha and beta particles. Using their properties, they write a descriptive paper about the gamma rays and alpha and beta particles. They calculate q-values and the half-life of a given radioactive isotope. They also discover how a nuclear reactor is tested and designed.

Carolyn M.
As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
