About This Quiz & Worksheet

The standard model of physics is complex, and this quiz/worksheet combo will help you test your understanding of the vocabulary and important terms surrounding the word. Some vocabulary terms you'll be assessed on include the standard model, examples of particle types, and the parts of the universe the standard model can't explain.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on:

  • Particles within the standard model
  • The definition of the standard model of physics
  • Weaknesses of the standard model

Skills Practiced

These assessments will allow students to test and improve the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson covering the standard model of physics
  • Making connections - use your understanding of the concept of regular particles
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main terms, such as standard model and regular particles
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding quarks and exchange particles.

Additional Learning

To learn more about the standard model of particle physics, review the accompanying lesson by the same name. This lesson covers the following objectives:

  • Learn about the fundamental particles of the universe and how they react with one another
  • Understand why the standard model is not a complete model of the universe
  • Know the differences between the four types of exchange particles
