The Many Looks of the Periodic Table questions

Other homework, also due Monday, 8.29:
Watch GPB Chemistry video #401: The History of the Periodic Table and take notes. You may use the note taking guide provided by GPB or write your own notes. You will use those notes in class on Monday – but they must be written!


H Chemistry 8.23.16

2nd period:

We learned three ways to write an electron configuration for an element.
1. from an orbital diagram
2. using the periodic table
3. using the diagonal rule
Electron configurations notes 082316

Here’s the CW:CW Electron Configurations

3rd period: We went over the electron configurations you finished yesterday and answered questions on the electron probability lab you did yesterday. Then you worked on the review for the unit test.

ALL Classes
Read the flame test lab for tomorrow.
