Radiation vs. Radioactive AtomsLesson Planet
3 mins 9th - Higher Ed
What's the difference between radiation and radioactive atoms? See the public share their opinions in an interview-driven video. The narrator discusses alpha and beta particles versus the atoms that can release them and relates this...
Math in Science-Radioactive Decay and Half-LifeLesson Planet
9th - 11th
In this radioactive decay and half-life worksheet, students use given half-lifes to calculate the amount of time it will take for certain amounts of elements to decay. They also find the age of samples and determine how many grams of...
Teaching Radioactive Decay: Radioactive Half-life And Dating TechniquesLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Students generate a radioactive decay table for an imaginary element using a box filled with pinto beans and M&M's. They use their data to plot a decay graph, develop the concept of half-life, and use the graph to "age" several samples.
