Students will learn about radioactive decay and how to write nuclear equations.
This concept discusses the cause of radioactivity and the two basic types of radioactive decay.
Beta negative and positron decay alter the nature of the atom. This video explains the changes, including the change in the quark balance in the nucleon.
Goes over radioactivity and explains alpha, beta, and gamma radiation.
Reviews radioactivity, its causes, and its effect on the atom.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Radiation.
This is an activity for students to complete while reading the Radioactivity Concept
A simulation of beta decay for a collection of or for individual nuclei.
This study guide gives a brief overview of radiation.
