Why is the periodic table so valuable to chemists? How can such a simple arrangement of the elements be such a powerful tool? The History of the Periodic Table chronicles the historical development of the concept of an "element" from the ideas of ancient Greece through modern quantum theory. Viewers learn that as scientists like Boyle, Dalton and Lavoisier began to recognize patterns in the behavior of chemicals, they sought a unifying principle that would explain why different elements had different properties. Students see how Mendeleev sorted through a mountain of data, looking for a logical organization, and they learn how he was able to predict the properties of elements years before they were even discovered! Includes a look at some of the many patterns found in periods and groups of elements that combine to create the world around us. Features information about a printable "Guide to the Elements" that can be used for student research and assessment purposes. Part of the multivolume The Periodic Table for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
