Dynamic Periodic Table

Dynamic Periodic Table

A must see: Information from Wikipedia, Webelements. Photos and videos for every element. Watch the short demo along the bottom bar to see all the possibilities, including the slider bar for the date of discovery. Switch between the standard and long (wide) forms.

If you need to blow up the table for showing details when projecting it, just hit <ctrl> plus + (Use the plus sign from the keypad.)
<ctrl> plus – reduces the size back to normal and smaller.. Make it small to show the full table go from short to long form and back again. Pretty cool.

There are endless project possibilities for students.

The Periodic Table of Videos

The Periodic Table of Videos(non-YouTube)
Could not get this to work in Southfield.

Dynamic Periodic Table

There’s a video for every element, even Uub (Copernicium). Listen to the discussion of the debate on the symbol for 112.

Use this videos as a class started. Do one a day.

Chemical misconceptions,

This site has some excellent worksheets and teacher information about common chemistry misconceptions. AmyLou uses several of the available worksheets and finds them nice in helping students develop their concepts.

It’s Elemental – Element Flash Card Game

This site has an element symbol/spelling quiz feature. Students can select which elements they want to be quizzed on.

The Salting Out of Ethanol and Water

Tim Graham’s Contribution

Hybridization of Atomic Orbitals (Flash)

Kathy Kitzmann suggests using a glass/beaker filled with yellow water for the s-orbital and three vessels with blue water for the p-orbitals. Mix the four together in the “mystery” hybridization chamber (bigger vesseal) and pour out four green sp3-orbitals. The colors of the Flash animation match this demo.

A demo a day is unrealistic with our schedules, but if you have an LCD projector you can have a 5 minute demo almost every day and there are thousands of demo videos out there. Also helps to see how to set demos up and the desired results.

Need to get some worksheets or test questions…..there are teacher/course sites for that (some have permission already given and some should be contacted for permission).

Need a great animation for your PowerPoint……thousands are out there.

Some universities have entire courses online (including lecture video). If a DX/DI teacher is pressed into teaching chemistry, perhaps watching a few lectures will make more sense than reviewing their old notes so they are more comfortable teaching material they haven’t seen in years. Also great for AP students that have missed more than a few days…..have them watch a lecture or two to be brought up to speed.

Budget strapped….use household goods whenever possible to save some money.
