Understand how decay and half life work to enable radiometric dating.

The rate of decay is a fixed rate called a half-life.

The half-life of a radioactive isotope refers to the amount of time required for half of a quantity of a radioactive isotope to decay.

By extension, this experiment is a useful analogy to radioactive decay and carbon dating.

Students use M&M’s (or pennies and puzzle pieces) to demonstrate the idea of radioactive decay.
