It seems sometimes that a great deal of my teaching career has been spent trying to track down reference information that I could use in making resources for the kids. Because I suspect the same is true for you, I’ve decided to collect the reference information I’ve needed in one, easy-to-read, easy-to-find spot. Enjoy!
- Reference 1: Table of common polyatomic ions: This is actually two tables – one of them arranges them in alphabetical order by name and the other in alphabetical order by formula.
- Reference 2: List of Ka values of weak acids: Need to figure out how acidic a formic acid solution is? This should help!
- Reference 3: Selected Ksp values: Great for those solubility problems you’ve been wanting to write!
- Reference 4: Solubility table: This table is unique because it doesn’t just list compounds as soluble and insoluble, but also indicates the specific solubility in grams / 100 grams water of partially-insoluble compounds. As if this wasn’t enough, it comes in both color and black-and-white versions to fit your needs.
- Reference 5: Common units and conversions: For all of your unit conversion problem needs.
Printable periodic tables: A periodic table for every occasion!
- Periodic table: This is a standard black and white periodic table.
- Periodic table – Blank: Shows the outline of the periodic table and where the elements should go.
- Periodic table – Groups: A periodic table color-coded by group.
- Periodic table – States: A periodic table color-coded by state of matter.
- Periodic table – Metals, Nonmetals, Metalloids: Color-coded by metallicity.
- Periodic table – Electronegativity: Shows the Pauling electronegativity values for each element.
- Periodic table – Electronegativity by color: Color-coded by Pauling electronegativity value.
- Periodic table – Atomic radius: Shows the atomic radii of each element in picometers.
- Periodic table – Atomic radius Colored: Color-codes the elements by atomic radius.
- Periodic table – First ionization energies: Indicates the first ionization energies of the elements (in kJ/mol).
- Periodic table – First ionization energies colored: Color-coded table by first ionization energy.
