Periodic Table Links and Info

The Periodic Table!

We know from this week that we can organize things based on properties, that organization makes things useful, and that the periodic table is organized by the properties of the elements.  We also know from our graphs in class that the elements show periodicity, or repeating patterns.  But what you have learned so far is just the surface!  There are lots more trends and properties that make sense when the elements are organized.  Based on our experiences, one more thing we know is that there is more than one way to organize a set of objects, and thus, there is more than one version of the periodic table. Check out these links and videos to learn about the trends in the periodic table, the history of its construction, and alternate versions of arranging the elements.
