Course: The Mystery of the Periodic Table

Course description:

This 6 week course is a short but very important historical study of the most important discoveries and breakthroughs which ultimately led to the formation of the "Periodic Table" of elements, which many of us have seen.   A very large team of men through the centuries have each contributed, more or less, to what is handed to us "on a silver platter".   The author presents the matter in an interesting and student-friendly style.  Highly recommended!

Publisher's Description:


Author Benjamin Wiker leads the reader on a delightful and absorbing journey through the ages, on the trail of the elements of the Periodic Table as we know them today. He introduces the young reader to people like Von Helmont, Boyle, Stahl, Priestly, Cavendish, Lavoisier, and many others, all incredibly diverse in personality and approach, who have laid the groundwork for a search and a mystery that is still unfolding to this day. Although Wiker’s style is so friendly that this book could be used with some benefit by even 12 or 13 year olds, yet the ideas underneath, and the progression of those ideas, will keep the high schooler plenty challenged. This book is an important "warm up" to get the big picture before beginning any modern chemistry book. Illustrated by Jeanne Bendick.
