Dr. Clausell Mathis will describe research he has done on strategies and methods that physics teachers can use to achieve equitable based instruction through cultural relevance. Clausell will describe research he has done with secondary physics teachers who attempt to incorporate culturally relevant pedagogy features in their classrooms.

Astrophysics has been at the forefront of data-intensive research and data science for decades, but the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) is about to usher yet a new era in data-intensive astrophysics. The "next-generation" ground-based astronomical survey, LSST will generate 20TB of information-rich optical-imaging data every night for 10 years starting in 2024 (probably...).

Ultra-high-energy cosmic rays remain one of the main scientific objectives of astroparticle physics. On the astrophysics side, the sources accelerating the most energetic Galactic and extragalactic particles are still unknown. On the particle physics side, we do not understand why hadronic interaction models predict too few muons in the atmospheric particle cascades initiated when cosmic-ray nuclei impinge the atmosphere. To address these questions, new techniques and a higher measurement accuracy for the properties of the primary cosmic rays is required.

In many real-world problems, a big scale gap can be observed between micro- and macroscopic scales of the problem because of the difference in mathematical (engineering, social, biological, physical, etc.) models and/or laws at different scales. The main objective of multiscale algorithms is to create a hierarchy of problems, each representing the original problem at different coarse scales with fewer degrees of freedom.

First proposed in 1959 by S. L. Glashow, the resonant creation of a W− boson from the interaction of an anti-electron neutrino with an electron has never been experimentally observed. In the electron rest-frame the required neutrino energy, Eν ≈ 6.3 PeV, is orders of magnitude greater than the energies of neutrinos created in Earth-based accelerators.
