Radioactive particles decay and release alpha, beta and gamma radiation. In this class students will look at the three types of ionising radiation; alpha, beta and gamma radiation. Students will then learn the particles that make up these radiation types and the penetrating power before looking at uses of the radiation types. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 and will help students feel more confident on the topic!
