Elements
 

We've got 18 elements to choose from. From the beginning we've been asked, "Why only cover 18?" The rules for the first 18 elements are very straightforward:

(1) Electrons fit nicely into three shells. Remember that the shells are the places you will find the electrons as they spin around the nucleus.
(2) These elements make up most of the matter in the Universe.
(3) It is a lot easier to remember facts about 18 elements than over 100 elements.

More Than 18?

Yes, it's true. We have added elements 18-36 to our list. You can learn about element origins, pronunciation, atomic structure, and locations. This next set of elements is from the fourth period/row of the table. Be aware... The easy rules don't apply here. We tried to make things as simple as possible.
