Modern Elementary Particle Physics. This book is written for students and scientists wanting to learn about the Standard Model of particle physics. Only an introductory course knowledge about quantum theory is needed. The text provides a pedagogical description of the theory, and incorporates the recent Higgs boson and top quark discoveries. With its clear and engaging style, this new edition retains its essential simplicity. Long and detailed calculations are replaced by simple approximate ones. It includes introductions to accelerators, colliders, and detectors, and several main experimental tests of the Standard Model are explained. Descriptions of some well-motivated extensions of the Standard Model prepare the reader for new developments. It emphasizes the concepts of gauge theories and Higgs physics, electroweak unification and symmetry breaking, and how force strengths vary with energy, providing a solid foundation for those working in the field, and for those who simply want to learn about the Standard Model.

The Revision Toolbox. "You mean I have to change my writing?" Georgia Heard frequently hears this question from students. With Revision Toolbox, Second Edition, you'll lead students to see that revision is a natural part of narrative and nonfiction writing. Heard writes that students need to be able to bring the tools of revision to writing the way a carpenter comes equipped for a job with a toolbox. So she shares three revision toolboxes--structure, words, and voice--each with dozens of teaching ideas and strategies. They'll help writers: re-envision revision as an engaging process, not as a punishment; craft a piece along the way instead of editing only at the end; learn and apply revision strategies for work in any genre; and reread their writing with specific revision goals in mind. This second edition brings Heard's lessons and strategies--new and familiar--into the Common Core era with a focus on narrative, informational, and opinion genres. She also includes tools for targeted instruction such as strategic conferences, reproducible planning templates for narrative and essays, and reproducible revision checklists.
