Dark Matter Lab: Goals

Goals for Dark Matter Lab

I could write out a long list of the goals for this lab, some that I came up with beforehand, but many that explain the difficulties I saw kids having with the material. I started writing that list, but it looked long, complicated, and confusing. So, I've broken the goals up between questions. I wrote the questions with the intention at getting at particular goals, so here's how it works out. For the most part, the answers to the questions are the goals. I am not saying that the goals are only addressed in each particular question. No, the goals relate to the entire lab, we are just focusing on particular things in each question. The questions should help guide the students to the various pieces of understanding that we expect them to get.
