|Description||This lesson has the students explore the intrinsic randomness of alpha decay by using dice and the simulation of alpha decay. The focus is on the predictable behaviour of large numbers of particles and the unpredictable nature of single particles.|
|Keywords||intrinsic randomness, nuclear, radioactivity|
|School / Organization||Toronto District School Board|
When this activity was written, the simulation was called Nuclear Physics. Since then the simulation was divided into 2 simulations: Alpha Decay and Nuclear Fission. Trish 09-10-2008
