This is a 111-slide Power Point presentation used to explain some of the fundamental concepts in the development of atomic structure and chemical periodicity. The history of atomic structure focuses on the electron and its behavior. Topics include: electromagnetic radiation, characteristics and properties of waves, calculations with speed of light and Planck's constant, Einstein's photoelectric effect, deBroglie, hydrogen emission spectra, Bohr, quantum mechanics, electron configurations (including exceptions), Periodic Table, periodic trends of ionization energy, electron affinity, and atomic radius. Animations and concept checks are inside the power point to make sure your students are following each major concept in this unit. Fully editable! Topics discussed are listed on the preview slide.
At least 7, 40-minute periods of material! Didn't get a chance to finish all the notes in one class period? It's easy to pick back up where you left off teaching because of the hyperlinks on the topics slide! Helpful animations and step by step examples are sure to enable your AP chemistry students learn these imperative concepts with ease.
