Properties of ElementsDVD - 2004
Why are some elements highly reactive and others very stable? Why do elements in the same family have similar properties? Properties of Elements explores the connection between the atomic structure of an element and its properties. Students see how the behavior of the elements and the compounds they form is related to their valence shells -- and learn that anything that affects the valence shell will affect the chemical and physical properties of the element! Viewers learn how to identify trends in properties based on location of an element on the periodic table. Includes a look at some of the many patterns found in periods and groups of elements that combine to create the world around us. Features information about a printable "Guide to the Elements" that can be used for student research and assessment purposes. Part of the multivolume The Periodic Table for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.
