I think that this is a great resource. My only issues with the site is that I wish there was a little more visual effects with the table. It would be nice if you could make it so that when the cursor goes over an element a quick bio pops up. This will help make the table a little more interactive.

Outstanding!  Visually appealing with tons of detailed information.  This can be used in multiple courses.

Excellent resource for students to navigate around the Periodic Table.  I always tell them that if they can get to know the Table, they'll have less use for my class!

Technical Remarks:

Some of the apps require quicktime video.

Excelente para trabajar en clases con los alumnos, es una herramienta muy interactiva, facil de utilizar y completa, no solo  para el area de quimica sino de uso general, ya que especifica las caracteristicas fisicas y quimicas de cada elemento quimico.

This is a tremendously useful website for any grade! I looked at just about every element on the site and found out many different facts that I never learned while I was in school. There was a significant amount of interesting and seemingly useful information for each element that I clicked on.

Technical Remarks:

The site is very easy to use and could wind up being quite addicting to students who use it to their advantage for research, projects, etc.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent well over an hour tooling around on this site reading and learning about elements I thought I already knew enough about, re-familiarizing myself with others and even learning about the elements I never really knew existed.

Great tool for students to understand periodic table. The pictures and explanations help to make connections, and therefore, have a better understanding of elements.

This is a great tool! Very complete in information and love that they have a picture of the element when possible. Only concern is that there is too much information for younger students to sift through, but great resource.
