Rate this:
This is an in-depth, information-rich, curriculum-centered examination of and introduction to the 90 elements that are classified as metals and metalloids. A lively discussion of their properties, atomic structure, and behavior when interacting with other elements makes up the core of the text, with repeated reference to the Periodic Table. Included in the discussion are alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, Group 3 metals, tin and lead, transition metals, and metalloids (having properties of both metals and nonmetals), and the rich history behind their discovery, classification, and practical uses. This text strongly supports Common Core Standards for the reading of scientific and technical texts and accounts, and furnishes ample opportunities to summarize, cite evidence, and analyze connections between ideas, individuals, and events.
