Orbital Battleship: A Guessing Game to Reinforce Atomic Structure
Kurushkin, Mikhail; Mikhaylenko, Maria
Journal of Chemical Education, v93 n9 p1595-1598 Sep 2016
A competitive educational guessing game "Orbital Battleship" which reinforces Madelung's and Hund's rules, values of quantum numbers, and understanding of periodicity was designed. The game develops strategic thinking, is not time-consuming, requires minimal preparation and supervision, and is an efficient and fun alternative to more traditional forms of education.
