Product Details

Knowledge of atomic and electron structure provides a central, unifying principle for understanding the properties of matter. Build a strong foundation for student success in chemistry with this integrated set of activities—two experiments, two demonstrations and two POGIL™ activities.
  • Determine the structure of something you cannot see! Students will feel great when they deduce the construction of The Think Tube in this “black-box” demonstration.
  • In the Atomic Target Practice experiment students model Rutherford scattering to discover the “nucleus” of an atom.
  • The Energy in Photons demonstration uses glow-in-the-dark phosphorescence to illustrate the abstract concept at the heart of the quantum theory of electron structure.
  • The classic Flame Tests experiment provides colourful qualitative evidence for the electronic structure of atoms.
  • Two POGIL activities, Isotopes and Average Atomic Mass, ensure understanding of how subatomic particles determine the identity and properties of an element.

Includes chemicals, specialized materials and complete instructions as well as free online video resources for three classes of 30 students working in pairs. Common laboratory equipment is required and available separately.
