Sal introduces electron configurations, and how they correspond to the periodic table of the elements. The periodic table is divided into the P, S, D, and F blocks, and Sal shows how each element's electron configuration can be determined based on their placement in the table.
This lab sheet is a guide to using well plates to combine the listed compounds and compare predicted behavior to actual observations.  The analysis and conclusion requires pupils to answer the 6 questions about electron configurations and stability.
Graph paper is included to allow the learners to plot the quantum number versus ionization energy values provided. Suborbitals and electron configurations are given. Learners should be able to estimate the ionization energies for first and second electrons. Some relevant definitions are needed and specific elements and ions detailed. The last few statements require pupils to analyze statements for accuracy.
Twelfth graders investigate the proper filling order of electrons in the energy levels of an atom. They practice how to "read" these occupied energy levels as electron configurations and demonstrate their understanding through creative presentations.
In this elements activity, students review the electron configuration of given elements and then complete the electron diagrams for the transition metal elements. This activity has 5 problems to solve.
Students write the electron configuration of elements using the Aufbau principle. In this chemistry lesson plan, students build their own key that demonstrates the principle.
How to determine electron configurations is the focus of this video. Sal shows students two different methods to find the electron configuration for the element, nickel. The first technique uses the periodic table, while second technique does not. Sal prefers using the periodic table and presents compelling reasons why it really is a better method to determine an element's electron configuration.
The creator of this collection of chemistry slides is clever! Electron configuration is explained as, click-by-click, orbitals are displayed and then each is subsequently filled with the proper amount of electrons. After the progression, a learning check slide and multiple choice questions give viewers the opportunity to practice. You will appreciate this teaching tool!
What will happen if you put the elements sodium and chlorine together? Sal answers this question, and others like it, in this video on valence electrons. The presence of electrons in an element's outer shell determines which element will "overpower" the other. Sal uses the periodic table of the elements to help students understand these valence electron configurations.
Students use the electron configurations of elements to determine their positions in the Periodic Table. In this periodic table lesson, students use the handouts provided to determine electron configurations for various elements. They use the electron configurations to organize and find elements in the Periodic Table of the Elements.
Electron energy levels are introduced to aspiring chemists in this PowerPoint. The number of electrons allowed in each level is explained, and then viewers learn how to write the electronic configuration of an element based on this information. Finally, diagrams of the orbitals for each energy level are shown. Throughout this presentation are several learning-check slides along with their solutions, which make this a terrific teaching tool for your chemistry class.
Students write the electron configuration of elements in the ground state. In this chemistry lesson, students draw how subatomic particles are arranged in the atom. They construct Lewis dot diagrams of valence electrons.
In this electron configuration worksheet, students fill in 10 blanks with the appropriate terms, they determine if 6 statements are true or false, they match 5 terms with their meanings and they answer two questions about electron configuration. Students identify electron configurations in atoms.
Young scholars perform flame tests on salts and record the electron configurations for various cations. They analyze and record the results using spectroscopes.
In this elements worksheet, students write the electron configurations for given elements. Students describe ionization energy and electron affinity and the periodic trends for both. This worksheet has 20 short answer questions.
Here is a thorough review of chemical bonding! Seventeen problems query chemistry learners about electron configuration and ionic bonding, sharing electrons and covalent bonding. Chemistry masters draw Lewis dot diagrams and answer questions about electronegativity. 
In this electron practice sheet, students complete ten sentences with specific scientific terms dealing with electrons principals of energy. In addition, they select the letter next to the best response for the next eight questions. Finally, students identify the elements described and write the electron configurations for the stated atoms.
Learners review atomic structure and then participate in a activity in which they categorize several "elements" into some form of order based on their properties. They discuss the trends they see. They also practice several electron configuration problems.
For this chemistry worksheet, high schoolers write the complete ground state electron configuration for 7 elements and write the abbreviated ground state electron configuration for 7 additional elements.
In this electron configuration and quantum mechanics worksheet, high schoolers identify the 4 symbols for quantum numbers, they complete an electron filling diagram, they complete orbital diagrams for 8 elements and they write the notation form for the electron configurations of 5 elements.
