Using the Periodic Table

Most science textbooks include a periodic table, but neglect to explain how to use it. This tutorial explains the periodic table in detail, and includes a link to an interactive table for your use.

Examine chemical symbols, atomic masses, electro-negativity, electron shell configuration, and more with our interactive program. We have all the elements discovered thus far, and instructions on how to read the table. This is a great way to study and learn the periodic table, and you can print it too!
