While all of chemistry relies on the periodic table, this webinar will emphasize how to apply knowledge of the periodic table to key areas of stoichiometry, atomic chemistry, and electrochemistry. Watch to review important topics like quantum numbers and periodic trends, and to learn how to use the periodic table to your advantage on the MCAT.
The Periodic Table
At a glance
Be able to read a periodic table and recognize which numbers and abbreviations correspond to which elements
Identify quantum numbers for any electron on the table
Link the table to higher level ideas, such as VSEPR theory
The different groups and periods
The different element and bond types
The periodic trend, such as electronegativity, ionization energy, and atomic radius
On the MCAT
One of the rare, beautiful things that the MCAT provides is a periodic table - use it well and don't hesitate to refer to it
The table on the MCAT is bare bones, so be sure to know your basics
Transition metals are often an exception to many periodic rules, and so they are frequently tested
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
