Electron Configurations

Our first order of business is for students to complete the isotopes post-assessment survey:


After taking the survey, we returned to focusing our attention to electrons, culminating  with Lesson 24.  Class notes are shown below:

Student had the remainder of the class period to read Lesson 24 in the textbook to better help them understand the concept of sub-shells.  Students are encouraged to watch the Crash Course chemistry video below as optional homework.

For Friday’s lesson, we will work through the Lesson 24 PowerPoint followed by the Lesson 24 Worksheet.  Students will gain additional practice with electron configurations on Monday through the electron configuration Gizmo.

Keep Learning!

Extend your learning with additional videos focusing on electron orbitals and electron configurations.
