Ch 24: CEOE Physical Science: The Periodic Table

About This Chapter

Review the important concepts of the periodic table in preparation for the corresponding section of the CEOE Physical Science exam. The video lessons and brief quizzes will explain the information you need to know in a clear and concise manner.

CEOE Physical Science: The Periodic Table - Chapter Summary

Before you sit for the CEOE Physical Science exam, you can master the concepts of the periodic table by using the effective lessons that are a part of this chapter. The video transcripts outline what you need to know about the periodic table such as:

  • Groups and periods of periodic table
  • Difference between transition metals and main group elements
  • Valence electrons
  • Atomic and ionic radii
  • Electronegativity and ionized energy
  • The boiling point and the diagonal relationship

The short and engaging lessons in this chapter take about 5 minutes each. There are timeline links below each video that permit you to skip around each lesson. This will allow you to focus on information about the periodic table that you may be struggling with.

CEOE Physical Science: The Periodic Table Chapter Objectives

Information about the periodic table is just a portion of the CEOE Physical Science exam. Teachers in Oklahoma should focus on competency 0015 under the third subarea of the exam to review the periodic table. The purpose of this competency assessment is to ensure that you understand different atomic structures and how the periodic table is organized.

The topics that are covered under this competency include models, principles of quantum theory, and subatomic participles and nuclear radiation/reactions. The questions on this entire Physical Science exam are computer-based. There are 80 multiple-choice questions and 1 constructed-response question. A portion of those questions will test you on the periodic table.

The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

1. The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

How is the periodic table like the map you used on your last road trip? In this lesson, you will be introduced to the periodic table, the road map of chemists. We will discuss how the elements are organized and how you can use this organization to identify some of their major physical properties.

Transition Metals vs. Main Group Elements: Properties and Differences

2. Transition Metals vs. Main Group Elements: Properties and Differences

Which is better: to be steadfast and consistent or to be a colorful chameleon? This lesson compares and contrasts the main group elements and the transition metals. Then make your own decision!

Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

3. Valence Electrons and Energy Levels of Atoms of Elements

The periodic table contains a wealth of information. This lesson will explain how to use it to quickly determine the most useful information about the most important electrons. We will be focusing our discussion on valence electrons and energy levels.

Atomic and Ionic Radii: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

4. Atomic and Ionic Radii: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

Atoms are VERY tiny. How do we measure their size? This lesson will explain how the size of an atom is measured and teach you how to predict the relative size of an atom based on where it is located on the periodic table.

Ionization Energy: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

5. Ionization Energy: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

Do you know someone who has undergone radiation as a form of cancer treatment? Have you ever thought about why X-rays have health risks? Watch the video to find out what these types of radiation are really doing to atoms, define ionization energy and identify ionization trends on the periodic table.

Electronegativity: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

6. Electronegativity: Trends Among Groups and Periods of the Periodic Table

How is fluorine like a child that doesn't share his or her toys? Find out in this video on electronegativity where we will discuss group and periodic trends among the elements.

The Diagonal Relationship, Metallic Character, and Boiling Point

7. The Diagonal Relationship, Metallic Character, and Boiling Point

What may have once seemed like a bunch of random squares with letters in them is now shaping up to be one very organized chemistry reference. In this lesson you will discover three other trends that are found on the periodic table: the diagonal relationship, trends in metallic character, and trends in boiling point.
