Task 1: Writing Electron Configuration

This video will explain all that you need to know about writing electron configurations for the S and P block elements. Be sure to have a periodic table, and your calculator (if necessary).

Task #2: Writing the Orbital Diagrams of electrons

In this video, students will learn how to symbolically represent the electron configurations of various examples of the S- and P-block elements. To do this, they need to be comfortable with writing electron configurations of elements first.
