This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RRVV4Diomg) was absolutely awesome at explaining the history of the periodic table and it's formation in an extremely funny and engaging way. First, it goes over Mendeleev's story (very funny), and then how the periodic table came to be set up the way it is--by period. It also briefly explains cations and anions, although you have to be paying attention, and it explains ionic bonds and which elements are attracted to the others. The last parts go kind of fast, but if you're like me and would rather have a video that you can sit through and not zone out, then I think this would be pretty helpful. It is eleven minutes long, but honestly, everything after eight minutes and thirty seconds is pretty superfluous, so just watch the first 8:30. Enjoy!
I liked this video a lot because of the clarity of the concepts presented. Also, I really liked how engaging this video was while still remaining really educational. Seeing as I've never heard of Mendeleev and I now have a pretty good grasp on his story, I know that this video is worth watching. The explanation of cations and anions was pretty clear despite the fact that it was really short.
I really enjoyed that this video was both funny and informative. I learned so much about the Periodic Table that I didn't know before. I also liked the story of Mendeleev, I didn't know who he was until now. Although this video was long, I think it was well worth it because I learned a lot and had a good laugh.
I found this helpful because even though I get the periodic table unit it was good to refresh for work sheets. It was also very informative and told me some new things.
When teaching anything, the presentation is always the most important. Doesn't matter how boring something is; if someone can give a interesting presentation, people listen, learn, and it sticks with them longer. This man does an excellent job at explaining and breaking down the periodic table. It also gives a nice history lesson about the man behind the periodic table, Dmitri Mendeleev. And lastly, it gives a nice detail of how the table itself could be improved, such as reformatting it so that the elements that were left outside the table have a place within it.
This video (click on my name for the video) essentially just recaps the fundamental concepts of the periodic table that we have been studying for the past two weeks. It mainly focuses on the positions of the elements dependent upon their atomic structure and the type of element that it is. It is more of a refresher than it is an educational video, however I did enjoy watching it and strengthening my comprehension of this topic. If you didn't take notes or just wish to study a little further, this video is for you.
This video is by Tyler DeWitt and he does an awesome job at thoroughly explaining what ions are. I was having a lot of trouble understanding this concept but his video helped me out a lot with the ion worksheet that we were given in this unit. If you are a visual learner, I would recommend watching this because he draws everything out and makes learning chemistry extremely easy to understand. He also talks pretty slowly, gives definitions, and provides multiple examples. He also has other videos on his channel that I've watched which have helped me tremendously with other units in chemistry.
I really liked this video. I think he did a great job of giving examples and explaining what was going on. This video really helped me out on some worksheets I needed to complete and I liked that he spoke clearly, most of the videos I checked out had bad audio quality making it hard to understand.
This helped thanks for posting this. I like how he put the pictures. It was long but worth it.
This video was really informative about the periodic table. It talked a little about what we are learning in class but it mainly talks about the elements and what they do. He also explains each of the columns and rows and their purposes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM4fQnxLlxY. This video basically explains the periodic table what it is and how it works. I like it because in two minutes you actually learn from it
The video I watched was a video of all the elements on the periodic table. It wasn't really necessary for Andrews class but I though it would be helpful for later reference and it was also funny.
This is a song of all the elements. A lot of videos we watched don't grab my attention but this video grabbed my attention, and if we heard it more than three time would could memorize it.
For me, Khan Academy has always been a reliable tool in learning just about anything or doing when doing reviews of work you don't quite yet. In this specific video about the periodic table, it goes over the different groups of the periodic table of elements (alkali, alkali earth, transition metals, halogens and noble gases). It details for each group specific aspects and some of their common properties
