Hot off the press (Net?). USAD will attach a copy of the periodic table to the science tests in all rounds.

OK, without looking, write down all the elements in order of their atomic number GOGOGOGOGO!

The berkner students will be doing that when they miss practice, no?

hydrogen helium lithium beryllium boron carbon nitrogen oxygen fluorine neon sodium magnesium aluminum boobs phosphorus sulfur chlorine argon potassium calcium scandium titanium vanadium chromium manganese iron cobalt nickel copper zinc gallium germanium arsenic selenium bromide krypton rubidium (don't remember) yttrium zirconium and then it gets a little fuzzy after that. but after you pass roentgenium it gets easy again, it's just ununbium, ununtrium, ununquadium, etc, up to ununoctium (and even further, but nothing heavier than ununoctium has ever been made in detectable amounts, last I heard).

I dunno, I think memorizing it would be a good thing. I mean, having the periodic table there is nice, but, it's just faster to remember some basic things, like atomic number & symbol, most common isotopes, and molar mass than having to look through a chart to find those things.

I mean, obviously I wouldn't ask someone to remember that about the uncommon elements (Yttrium, anyone?), but the first, say, thirty-six elements should be standard fare for memorizing. All your most common non-metals, and the first line of transitions. And, hell, gold, silver, cadmium, mercury, and the rest of your groups 1, 2, and 18.

That's not even fifty elements, man.

Back in my first chemistry class, we had one test on really basic chemistry that he wanted us to remember. That meant no periodic table.

Unless we had a periodic table as a tattoo.


Me? I have a shirt with the periodic table on it.



but seriously, fantastic news, but it's also easier to remember stuff about the more common elements. Less time wasted on going back and forth from test to table.

Now I know what I'm getting next.

Also, kater, you might want to change your title, considering the change in avvie.

Yeah, so no more of this noise about how easy the periodic table is to remember. Let's celebrate how the kids get to use one on the test.

Well, to be fair, Lanthanides and synthetic elements probably won't be coming up on the tests too often.

I thought it was supposed to be a joke. But leave it to ADtalk to have the biggest nerds EVER....

Nobody else has mentioned it. I assume nobody else read that far?

Rofl! I should have noticed that, I always do stuff like that when I have to make obscenely long lists.
