ElementsDatabase.com features printable periodic tables in PDF format, along with periodic table images and free chemistry and physics images that can help students with their projects and research. Visitors are offered a periodic table quiz with over 300 questions and a chemistry hangman game to test their knowledge of chemical elements from the periodic table.
The new educational tools aim to make the learning process more entertaining and enjoyable. The conceptual and mathematical nature of chemistry is a challenge for many students. Chemistry requires higher order thinking skills such as understanding, analysis, and evaluation. Not only is chemistry abstract, but it requires conceptual and qualitative analysis of phenomena. It is a natural science with real world and theoretical components, which students find hard to grasp. Students have to memorize notation conventions, names and symbols of chemical elements, etc. This is basic knowledge, but many students find memorization frustrating. Moreover, chemistry teachers use a lot of terms and jargon, which is boring for students and doesn’t help them to master the subject. Some academic chemists teach the subject without bothering to explain important concepts and terms. The aim of the new educational tools is to help students to memorize names and chemical symbols, understand key concepts and phenomena, and enjoy the process all along.
