Elements Academy – Master the Periodic Table of Elements!

Elements Academy is developed to help those who are interested in chemistry and want to memorize quickly and easily the elements’ symbols, names, atomic numbers and position in the periodic table. The two key teaching and training concepts are progressive introduction and focused repetition. The learning material is categorized into modules and then broken down into manageable units (levels) to ensure efficient learning and training. If you are not particularly interested in the chemical elements but in improving your memory in general, Elements Academy is also a useful tool.

What’s the Periodic Table of Elements?

The periodic table is a tabular display of the chemical elements, which by far includes 118 elements that have been discovered or synthesized. They are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties.

The 7 rows of the table are called periods, which generally have metals on the left and nonmetals on the right. The elements in the same row have the same number of electron shells (also called orbits) in an atom. The row number is the electron shell number.

The 18 columns of the table are called groups, which contain elements with similar chemical properties. The elements in the same column have the same amount of valence electrons (outer shell electrons), which decide the chemical properties of an element.

The box colors of the elements represent the classes of elements, which include metals, metalloids and nonmetals. These classes can be further categorized into subclasses, which are modules in this app.

What’s the Explore page?

The Explore page allows users to zoom in and out the periodic table to see the elements more clearly and click on them to see their symbol, name, atomic number and mass (weight).

What are modules?

All the chemical elements can be categorized into three major classes – metals, metalloids and nonmetals, while each major class can be further divided into various subclasses.

In Elements Academy, there are 9 modules (as well as 1 summary module), which correspond to 9 subclasses of the elements – Alkali Metals, Alkaline Earth Metals, Transition Metals, Lanthanoids, Actinoids, Post-transition Metals, Metalloids, Reactive Nonmetals and Noble Gases. Each subclass is marked by a different color for effective memorization.

What are learning modes?

After choosing a module, you can choose to learn the names of the elements or their position in the periodic table.

Name levels and challenges?

In short, a level focuses on introducing new elements while a challenge tests what you’ve learnt. In a name level, first a few new elements will be introduced and you should try to remember their names. Then you’ll start a quiz game to train your knowledge. In a challenge, you must make less than 3 mistakes to pass it.

Position levels and challenges?

In short, a level focuses on introducing new elements while a challenge tests what you’ve learnt. In a position level, first a few new elements will be displayed on the periodic table and you should remember their position. Then you’ll start a game to tap on the correct position of a given element. In a challenge, you must make less than 3 mistakes to pass it.

What settings can I change?

Under Settings in Elements Academy, you can enable/disable the button sound, correct/wrong sound (when you answer a question correctly or wrong), button vibration and vibration on error.

Extra info

  • Certificate button: A certificate for each module will be issued once the user passes all the (Name and Position) levels and challenges in that module.
  • Continue button: Instead of going through the trouble of choosing the module, learning type and level, by clicking the Continue button, you’ll start the next unfinished level/challenge immediately.
  • Info button: The Info page provides insights into the composition and significance of the periodic table as well as the functionalities of the app.
  • In total, there are 78 levels and 36 challenges teaching and training the symbols, names, atomic numbers and position (in the periodic table) of all the 118 discovered or synthesized elements of the periodic table.
  • After learning all the 118 elements, there’s 1 big module (All Elements) mixing all the elements for review and knowledge enhancement.
