Saturnelli, Annette – Science Teacher, 1985
Examines problems resulting from different forms of the periodic table, indicating that New York State schools use a form reflecting the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry's 1984 recommendations. Other formats used and reasons for standardization are discussed. (DH)

Viana, Hélio Elael Bonini; Porto, Paulo Alves – Journal of Chemical Education, 2013
This paper presents a history of chemistry case study focusing on selected aspects of the work of American engineer Thomas Midgley, Jr. (1889-1944): the development of tetraethyl lead as an antiknock gasoline additive and of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as fluids for refrigeration devices. One general aim of this case study is to display the complex…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2015
Representations are an effective tool that chemistry teachers choose to use in their classes to help their students understand abstract concepts. According to the model of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), a teacher's knowledge of representations is part his/her PCK, which is shaped specifically by his/her orientation towards science teaching.…

Herrenden-Harker, B. D. – School Science Review, 1997
Presents a modern Periodic Table based on the electron distribution in the outermost shell and the order of filling of the sublevels within the shells. Enables a student to read off directly the electronic configuration of the element and the order in which filling occurs. (JRH)

Farrer, Nicola J.; Monk, Nicholas; Heron, Jonathan; Lough, Julie Ann; Sadler, Peter J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2010
In order to explore new teaching and learning methods for undergraduates in chemistry at the University of Warwick, interactive workshops based on the periodic table were devised by a team of chemists and theatre practitioners. In the first term of the academic year, students were assigned an element to research, and were required to submit…

Daftedar Abdelhadi, Raghda Mohamed – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Although the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS) present a detailed set of "Science and Engineering Practices", a finer grained representation of the underlying skills is lacking in the standards document. Therefore, it has been reported that teachers are facing challenges deciphering and effectively implementing the…

Connelly, Rebecca Danielle – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Students majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are in high demand. Over 1 million STEM graduates will be needed by 2022 to meet the projected workforce needs (The Progress Report on Coordinating Federal Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education, 2016). If students are needed to fulfill jobs in areas…

Raubenheimer, Helgard G.; Schmidbaur, Hubert – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
Probably owing to the prejudice that gold is a metal too noble to be used much in chemistry, the chemistry of this element has developed much later than that of its congeners and neighbors in the periodic table. In fact, before and after the time of alchemists, and up to the 20th century, all chemistry of gold was mainly performed in attempts to…

Hall, H. K., Jr. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1980
An analogy between electron transfer reactions of the elements and those of organic molecules is offered. Examples of organic electron transfer reactions are presented. The rationale of constructing an organic chemists' periodic table is also discussed. (HM)

Lehman, Jeffrey R.; And Others – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1984
Explored the effects of learning on structural modifications to the periodic table; the location of a periodic table within instructional materials; and the presence of a two-page schema showing relationships between the topics explained in the written materials and the periodic table. Results obtained from 160 students are reported and discussed.…

Schmidt, Hans-Jurgen; Baumgartner, Tim; Eybe, Holger – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2003
Investigates secondary school students' concepts of isotopes and allotropes and how the concepts are linked to the Periodic Table of Elements (PTE). Questions senior high school students with multiple choice items and interviews. Shows that students actively tried to make sense of what they had experienced. (KHR)
