1/9 – Monday – “A” Day – 

Main focus: 

a)  To identify that elements are arranged by their atomic number and group together 
      based on similar chemical properties (BASED ON VALENCE ELECTRONS!)
b)  To observe how the three trends of the periodic Table change according to moving 
      across  a row, (period, shell, principle energy level) AND up and down a group (family,             column).
Period  9:

1.  Unit 3 – Periodic Table intro lesson begins: 

Atomic Radii Chart Flinn rotated p.pdf

The three trends of the periodic table:
    a) Atomic Radii-  The size of the atom
    b) Electronegativity-  The attraction that an element has for (other atoms) electrons.
    c) Ionization Energy – The energy needed to pull electrons away from an atom.
These three trends are responsible for all of the properties of elements and thus defines elements as Metals, Non- metals and Metalloids.

3.  Introduce a practice question:

Given the following excerpt of the periodic table:

Which element N or Cl has a greater electronegativity?

Is there a place to answer this question if our prediction from our understanding of the periodic trends do not give a clear concise answer?
