  1. To assist you with a greater understanding of the atomic structure and the periodic table, I have assigned through the Khan Academy the following videos:

    1. Introduction to Chemistry

    2. Elements and Atoms

    3. Average Atomic Mass

    4. Introduction to the Periodic Table

    5. Groups of the Periodic Table

    6. Counting Valence Electrons for Main Group Elements

    7. The Periodic Table Transition Metals

    8. Activity - Counting Valence Electrons Practice


Make a heading on the title line of your notes and entry to the table of contents of “Khan Academy Videos”. For each video in your notebook take relevant notes to assist you with your understanding.  Do not be concerned if you do not fully understand the orbitals.
