Plus Pilots: Understanding the Periodic Table

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had this in high school I enjoyed this course. I wish I had it the first day of high school chemistry. It gives you a good road map. My high school teacher told us to memorize the table. This course immediately points out not to. Understanding the logic and reasons for the arrangement is so much more useful. Thank you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Professor is clear but presentation needs work! Difficult to follow given constant left and right camera views with no graphics other than a static periodic table shown for emphasis. I expect more given I can find thousands of videos on the WWW on the subject. You need to use a multimedia approach to enable better retention, as opposed to a old-style lecture with no visuals. Sorry to disappoint, but you need the feedback to compete better.

Understanding the Periodic Table
1: Understanding the Periodic Table

The periodic table of elements is something that is invariably hanging on the wall of science classrooms all over the world. Currently, it lists 118 elements—both found in nature and synthetically created—which make up everything we know. Join a senior lecturer of chemistry at Bowdoin College as she takes you through the history and logic that has gone into the periodic table. You’ll walk through the periodic table of elements, tracing the original elements and hearing the stories of how new elements were discovered, added, and organized over the centuries.
