View Resource Isotopes and Hydrology

This program provides a clickable periodic table that links elements to additional information about their isotopic systems. Information is provided about the isotopes important to hydrology, their applications, how they are measured, and how much it costs for an analysis.

View Resource Nuclear Power Plant

This lesson introduces students to the basics of nuclear energy production. Topics include radioisotope thermoelectric generators, natural decay of radioactive isotopes, and chain reactions. There is also a discussion of how to control a chain reaction and some concepts of reactor design. The lesson includes an activity in which students operate an online simulation of a nuclear power plant,...

View Resource Nuclear Decay

This lesson provides an overview of basic atomic structure and the concept of radioactive decay. Topics include the particles that make up an atom, binding forces, and the concept of isotopes. There is also discussion of decay methods and half-life versus activity. The lesson includes an activity in which students use online applets to investigate the half-life and activity of selected isotopes...

View Resource How Does Radioactive Decay Work?

This teacher's guide with exercises is intended to help teach the topics of radioactive decay and its use to determine age. It identifies four main concepts that students are likely to struggle with: spontaneity (randomness) of radioactive decay; the importance of isotopes; the concept of half-life; and how to choose which system of isotopes to use to determine age. The guide presents suggestions...

View Resource The Lund/LBNL Nuclear Data Search

Created by professors in the Department of Physics at Lund University in Sweden, the Lund/LBNL Nuclear Data Search provides on-line access to data from the Table of Isotopes handbook. Data may be accessed via radiation or nuclide searches. Radiation searches may be conducted on several levels, from the more general (energy and energy type -- alpha or gamma), to the more specific (parent...
