1) Resources for Newcomers:
Download the document below to find a number of resources to help you get started with CMS data analysis. The document tells you what portions of the resources are most helpful.

From the high school students in the group:
Dr. Tom McCauley of the CMS collaboration sent us dimuon (2) and dielectron (3) data. We uploaded it to MATLAB and saved it in MATLAB format. We then wrote code to graph various aspects of the data. To create a more user-friendly environment, we wrote GUIs (graphical user interfaces) that allow users to easily graph the data and made them available to the public (4). We also analyzed graphs of both the dimuon and dielectron data and published our results (5).
