How I Use It
Each year I have my students graph the trends that appear in the Periodic Table. In the past, they have used the Reference Table provided to them by the State of New York. Each year the students make numerous mistakes because reading the charts in the Chemistry Reference Table is not very easy and takes getting used to. This activity has often taken students several days to complete. WIth this app, I can complete my Periodic Table graphing activity in one lab period. The students find the information they need very quickly and are able to spend more time understanding the reasons and rationale behind this activity.
It is a great resource for starter information. It is also great for inquiry based lessons where they get a little bit of information and have to do labs or research based on what they saw.
