Periodic Trends in e- Configuration – Pt 1

Students will be able to identify the valence electrons in any atom.

Students completed a second set of electron configuration problems, the concept of valence electrons were discussed, and students then created a note card containing valence electron properties for each elements they had completed e- configurations for.
