I remember using the periodic table in high school but I don’t remember how to use it or what exactly it is.
It was interesting to see how the different sites seem to highlight different information, like http://www.chemicalelements.com shows the element groups.
|Element Groups (Families)|
|Alkali Earth||Alkaline Earth||Transition Metals|
|Rare Earth||Other Metals||Metalloids|
I liked this site a lot because you can easily filter based on what you are interested in knowing. I am amazed that it was created by an 8th grader for a science fair project!
This site seemed to provide the most context and overview for each element: http://periodic.lanl.gov/default.htm
I don’t get the circular representation of this periodic table. What is the significance to the image/circular representation? http://www.geocities.com/gemowery/CircularPeriodicTableOfElementsIonic.html
I liked the FunBrain link game:
http://www.funbrain.com/periodic/index.html and found it useful to find a way into the Periodic table – it’s interactivity was nice, but I was hoping it would quiz on more than the element names.
I could tell that the “Rejected Elements” website (http://www.schneertz.com/elements.html) was a spoof, but I didn’t get it.
