This class explores the periodic table, atomic structure, and characteristics of individual chemical elements. There will be two primary aspects to each class meeting. We’ll begin each week by doing brief research and sharing projects. Each student will learn a few facts about the periodic table, atomic structure, or a specific element and then share that information with the class. Following that, we’ll explore the elements through gameplay. Students can learn as we go, or access the game questions and answers - plus extra information - via www.joesclasses.wordpress.com for at-home practice and study.
