Atomic Structure

Atomic Structure
Type of Resource: Interactive/Simulation

This website contains two sets of slides about the Periodic table. One is about atoms and the periodic table while the other one focuses more on the electronic structure of atoms. Each set of slides has an interactive multiple choice test to check learning which gives instant feedback and comments if students choose an incorrect answer.

Additional Information

Housed on the BBC Bitesize website this resource is designed to support GCSE science courses in the UK. No login required.

Although not particularly dynamic these two resources cover the key concepts required at Year 10 and also the capaability for the students to complete a short revision quiz.

The pitch of the content and the standard of questions would make this suitable for the majority of students, primarily as a revision activity.

Note: the activity for the 'Atoms and the periodic table' section is in the Flash format and so won't work on an iPad.
