SCI.9-12.CH.1.a: Science

Students know how to relate the position of an element in the periodic table to its atomic number and atomic mass.

SCI.9-12.CH.1.b: Science

Students know how to use the periodic table to identify metals, semimetals, non-metals, and halogens.

SCI.9-12.CH.1.c: Science

Students know how to use the periodic table to identify alkali metals, alkaline earth metals and transition metals, trends in ionization energy, electronegativity, and the relative sizes of ions and atoms.

SCI.9-12.CH.1.d: Science

Students know how to use the periodic table to determine the number of electrons available for bonding.

SCI.9-12.CH.1.f: Science

Students know how to use the periodic table to identify the lanthanide, actinide, and transactinide elements and know that the transuranium elements were synthesized and identified in laboratory experiments through the use of nuclear accelerators.

SCI.9-12.CH.1.g: Science

Students know how to relate the position of an element in the periodic table to its quantum electron configuration and to its reactivity with other elements in the table.

SCI.10-12.4.D: Science

classify matter as pure substances or mixtures through investigation of their properties.

SCI.10-12.5.A: Science

explain the use of chemical and physical properties in the historical development of the Periodic Table;

SCI.10-12.5.B: Science

use the Periodic Table to identify and explain the properties of chemical families, including alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, halogens, noble gases, and transition metals; and

SCI.10-12.5.C: Science

use the Periodic Table to identify and explain periodic trends, including atomic and ionic radii, electronegativity, and ionization energy.

Reviewer Comments:

This resource is strictly a lecture tool or to be distributed to students. The resource is an interactive periodic table that provides information about a specific element when the periodic tile is "clicked-on" by the user. There are minimal graphics but the information provides is the basic chemical information of the element (e.g. atomic number, symbol, electron configuration, name, physical and chemical properties, etc.) This is a great tool for Advanced placement and/or first-year undergraduate students for reference. Teachers who would like to use it for high school chemistry would need to modify its use with instructions of how to use it as a reference tool. (A flow chart would be a good side tool to introduce this tool.) It is easily found in the science folder and easy to download. It should be noted that there is a Mac OS and windows version of this tool for download.
