A couple of my students asked for worksheets to practice drawing atoms and electron shells. I updated the Atom Builder app to make sure it works and to make the app embedable.
So now I can ask a student to draw 23Na+ then show the what they should get:
Draw diagrams of the following atoms, showing the number of neutrons, protons, and electrons in shells. See the example above.
- 14C: answer.
- 32K+: answer.
- 18O2-: answer.
- 4He2+: answer.
- 32P–: answer.
I guess the next step is to adapt the app so you can hide the element symbol so student have to figure what element based on the diagram.
