Students will be able to
- outline the development of the periodic table from Dalton to Newlands to Mendeleev,
- state the successes, limitations, and flaws in each version of the periodic table,
- explain how the arrangement of the periodic table changed in response to new experimental data,
- outline the way in which Mendeleev left gaps in the periodic table and how his predictions were supported by the discovery of new elements,
- show patterns of properties within the periodic table to develop an understanding of the elements,
- explain the principles by which the modern periodic table is arranged to develop familiarity with the periodic table.
