Methodological notes

On special relativity teaching using modern experimental data

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Physics, Leninskie Gory 1 build. 2, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

A new methodological approach to the study of relativistic space-time properties is proposed based on the 20th century’s vast experimental research on relativistic accelerator and cosmic ray particles. This approach vividly demonstrates that relativistic effects are the manifestation of fundamental space-time properties and refutes the false notion that relativity is only of relevance to light phenomena.
