Inquiry Based Project #2 – Almahmouda

3

After reading comments and consulting my classmates, I have come to the conclusion that my topic could be difficult to understand, and yet, I am even more attracted to the challenge of making sure it is comprehensible. I need to establish a scholarly style while maintaining an understandable tone throughout my inquiry, too.  Personally, I feel as if this topic is rich with information that is pertinent to almost any facet of life; we can all benefit from having learned something about the Higgs-Boson.

Area Of Inquiry

My area of inquiry resides in the immense field of research behind finding another Higgs Boson, and the discovery of the Boson itself. Truly, an area of science so grandiose requires a  large, almost unmatched base of research for support. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, designed the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), “the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, to research a variety of controversial questions, such as discovering the origins of mass. Discovering the Higgs Boson not only leads the science community to the origins of mass, but also to the completion of the Standard Model, an equation relating an object’s basic particles and governing forces. Quarks, gravitons, and muons: if they don’t sound familiar, that’s okay! My inquiry based project (IBP) revolves around the importance of the Boson relative to the Standard Model, Large Hadron Collider, and the science world, hopefully leaving my reader with an elementary understanding of the Standard Model, Higgs Boson, LHC, and CERN.

Direction (Vector) Of Inquiry

As my introduction tended to be a little vague in describing my real area of intended study, I will clarify and direct my inquiry based project. I will study the impact of the Higgs Boson on the Science community pertaining to the Standard Model. Seems a touch repetitive, but I would sincerely enjoy hearing opinions on this matter.

Your Project In The Concept Space Of The Web

For my project in the Concept Space of the web, I would try and incorporate external articles from CERN, and I would be more than willing to mention multiple classmates’ IBPs if they were to relate to my IBP. Since the material will be very science-oriented, I will insert images and graphs to help explain my IBP. If anyone reading this post has further suggestions/ideas/comments, please post them! I can only develop this IBP to be so great on my own, and I believe advice will help me bring this IBP to the next level.

I will continue my research on the topic, and I will edit this post with more links. As I’ve stated before, if anybody reading this post has helpful links that are relative to this post, please post them 🙂

  1. So, assuming my background knowledge about the Higgs boson is correct, I think it would be really interesting to look at the effect that it has on spirituality in society as well. And if it has any standing in the evolution vs creationism debate, or if it actually makes the two sides become more intertwined!

  2. I did not about Higgs boson at all and i am more into computer related stuff. I would like to read your whole research in order to get some valuable information and knowledge.

  3. I must say that I Was somewhat surprised to see my link here, which makes me pleased, so I hope that you enjoyed that video as much as I did. it certainly has some interesting topics of discussion and the part about the Higgs is one of the most explanatory resources I’ve encountered to date. Everyone says this, but I look forward to reading your full article and gaining some better insight into this subject. (I hope you won’t go too easy on the hard-science)
