Quantum Leap Lab-Probability and Electron Structure

Students use a marble and a bull's eye target sheet to simulate electrons and the nucleus of an atom. In this probability and electron structure lesson plan, students investigate the location of electrons in atoms by using target sheets to drop marbles from knee level and eye level onto the sheet. Students tally the location each marble lands in and they answer 5 questions about probability and the location of electrons in atoms.
