Submitted by Patrick Lutz / St. Lawrence University on Mon, 02/21/2022 - 11:08
Description

This activity was created to extend the "First Day Review of Atomic Orbitals" LO to take up a full class period. The first part of the activity is likely familiar to many VIPER users, asking students to brainstorm and review key concepts related to atomic orbitals. (The author participated in this very activity as a student circa 2010!) The second part of this LO is new and leads students on a guided tour of the Orbitron website to review or discover the shapes of atomic orbitals and their nodal properties.
