The Periodic Table

To begin the class we watched Episode 1 of the ABC series "Atoms of Fire" which is available on DVD at the library. It provides an introduction to organic chemistry, valency, covalent bonding and the diagrams we need to accurately describe organic molecules.

We then watched some short videos relating to the periodic table, its development and some of its uses (some are more humorous than helpful).

We then completed the "Periodic Table Quiz" which is Assessment task 2.
