To consolidate the learning on anti-matter which students have gathered from the entire CERN Antimatter teaching module


This lesson plan is part of the Anti-Matter Teaching Module (see related documents).  
Duration of lesson:  approximately 30 minutes.  ( duration may vary depending on how it is used)
Care has been taken to ensure that the mathematical knowledge required for students to successfully complete these lesson plans harmonizes with that which is expected of students in the 9th and 10th forms, according to a representative sample of national curricula. For some of the more calculation-intensive lesson plans, teachers may find the Background Materials helpful. Teachers may also discover that the required calculations can provide an opportunity for training in the use of calculators and/or computer graphing programs.
This lesson takes the form of a thought-experiment about a world made of antimatter, and is meant to consolidate what the students have learned through the entire CERN Antimatter module. (For all related lesson plans, see related documents).
Upon the completion of this lesson, the student shall:
-Have applied critical-thinking skills in an imaginary scenario, using the knowledge that has been learned thus far about antimatter.
