PERIMETER INSTITUTE: HANDS-ON WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY

Sunday, January 5th, 2014 I 12:00PM – 1:00PM

The wave-particle duality is one of the deepest mysteries of quantum mechanics.

Come explore a hands-on activity that introduces students to the concepts involved in

the wave-particle duality.

PERIMETER INSTITUTEUTE: SPICING UP CLASSICAL PHYISCS

WITH MODERN EXAMPLES

Sunday, January 5th, 2014 I 2:00PM – 3:00PM

Tired of using the same examples to illustrate concepts in classical physics every year?

We will show you how to use dark matter in your lessons about circular motion, how to

do nuclear physics using electric fields, and how to detect sub-atomic particles using

conservation of momentum. Come and see how modern physics can be explored

within classical curriculum in these easy-to-adapt examples for your classroom.

PERIMETER INSTITUTE: CURVED SPACE-TIME IN

THE CLASSROOM

Monday, January 6th, 2014 I 12:00PM – 1:00PM

Bring Einstein’s curved space-time model for gravity into your classroom using masking

tape and balloons to explain free fall and predict time dilation, as observed in GPS

calculations.

PERIMETER INSTITUTE: MEASURING PLANCK’S CONSTANT

Monday, January 6th, 2014 I 1:00PM – 2:00PM

Come explore Measuring Planck’s Constant, using light emitting diodes (LED’s),

your students will accurately measure Planck’s constant, the fundamental constant

that defines the scale of quantum physics.
