Product Description
The Elements is something new! A new way to teach, test and learn about the elements and periodic table in a single computer program.
The Elements is the second in an interactive series of learning programs that combine theory, labs and videos to teach Science Concepts (SciCo). SciCo is ideal for the home schooled or independent learner and for students who want to expand their understanding of science. Teachers with access to a computer lab may use The Elements to enhance the classroom experience.

The Elements includes several labs. demonstrations and activities. Topics include:

Chemical Processes
Chemical Names
Atomic Theory
Organization of Matter
Metallic Elements
Nonmetallic Elements
Metalloids or Semimetals
Flame Tests
Continuous Spectrum
Emission Spectrum
The Universe
The Earth
The Atmosphere
The Oceans
Discovery of the Elements
Symbols of the Elements
Relative Atomic Mass
Organizing the Elements
Atomic Number
XRF Analysis
Periodic Table
Modern Periodic Table
Groups and Families of Elements
Metallic Nature of the Elements
Periodic Patterns

The Elements is a much richer learning experience than is common in high school courses and some teachers may feel it is too information dense for students. However, SciCo creates a new paradigm for teaching, SciCo teaches students by exposure to information. Students must complete many different activities that require them to process the information as it is presented. Feedback is immediate and the material can be repeated until they are satisfied with their results. The testing and evaluation is in the process. No need for memorizing all of the facts presented for a summary test. The assumption is that the students learn enough by doing, and experience shows an increased retention and understanding of the material, together with an increased breadth of learning. This idea of combining the learning with the evaluation frees the teacher to present much more material including history and interesting ideas, labs and technologies without the expectation that the detail has to be absorbed to the level of repeating onto a written test. This exposure technique makes the learning process much more interesting and enjoyable.

If you want more information on how SciCo works, there are two resources for learning how to use SciCo. These are available for free on my Teachers Pay Teachers site. They are:

• Introducing SciCo
- a short video on how to use SciCo
Using SciCo
- a version of the SciCo program that teaches the user how to use SciCo and allows you to check that the program will work on your computer.

Also there is the first section in the ChemCo series:

• Introduction to Chemistry
- available at my SciCo site on Teachers Pay Teachers.
