About Course

Course Overview: This course offered a deep dive into the periodic table, providing students with a thorough understanding of its structure, the properties of elements, and their applications in various fields. Through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical exercises, learners gained insights into the fundamental principles of chemistry and the role of elements in the natural and industrial world.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Proficient understanding of the history and development of the periodic table, including key contributions from scientists like Dmitri Mendeleev.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of atomic structure, including atomic number, atomic mass, and isotopes, and how these relate to an element’s position in the periodic table.
  • Ability to identify and explain trends in the periodic table, such as atomic radius, ionization energy, electronegativity, and electron affinity.
  • Understanding of the classification of elements into groups, periods, and blocks, and the significance of each classification.
  • Knowledge of the role of elements in life and biology, including essential elements for life and trace elements.
  • Insight into the environmental and health aspects related to the use of certain elements, their toxicity, and the importance of sustainable practices.
  • Familiarity with the frontiers of chemistry and materials science, including predictions for undiscovered elements and the applications of novel materials.

Skills Developed:

  • Critical thinking and analytical skills through the interpretation of trends and patterns in the periodic table.
  • Practical laboratory skills, including safe handling of chemicals and execution of chemical experiments to observe properties and reactions of elements.
  • Research skills through exploration of current trends in materials science and the synthesis of new elements.
  • Communication and presentation skills developed through group discussions, presentations, and report writing.
