Unique ways to use this widget
There are multiple ways you can set up and use this widget to assess learner knowledge. For example:
- This widget has three separate selection ways in which students can explore the table: Element, Period, Group.
- Element: Students click on the table and only select an individual element
- Period: Students click on the table and select an entire period
- Group: Students click on the table and select an entire group
- The table can also be set to allow multi-select, so students can select more than one of any of the above.
- Display detailed information about the element/group/period that has been selected.
- Ask students select the correct element to match a description or name a compound.
- Combined with other widgets, like the Expression Editor, ask students to balance a chemical equation.
