Interactive Periodic Table of Elements

For the Chemistry teacher the periodic table of elements is critical to the learning process. Students would be required to look at at a photocopied sheet of paper with limited information and in many cases the type is so small you can’t read it. If each student had access to the internet through either a laptop or tablet they would be able to access so much more valuable information. The image to the left is from ptable.com which combines information from multiple sources in one convenient location. Students would be able to look at a particular element and determine all the properties associated with that element or groups of elements. If the chemistry teachers out there are not aware of this tool check it out and let me know if this would be something you would use in the classroom.
