Electron configurations are usually a difficult topic for students to learn, especially when they do not have a solid foundation in chemistry.
This is why ChemistryNinja has made this fill-in-the-blank Electron Configurations lesson plan for science teachers. These notes first break down fundamental background information that is necessary to understand the topic. It then provides a solid method on how to write longhand and shorthand electron configurations. It also includes a shortcut method for those who are "veteran" chemistry students. The notes then ends with a list of examples for students to practice and master how to write electron configurations.
