If everything in the known universe is composed of atoms then we should all have a basic understanding of the atom and the three fundamental subatomic particles; the proton, the neutron, and the electron. Uniquely presented with visually stunning and interesting representations, students learn the basics of atomic theory; e.g., how to deduce numbers of protons, neutrons, and electrons, atomic number, isotopes, atomic mass, cations, anions, and basic quantum theory to develop orbitals, electron configurations, and the four quantum numbers for any electron. Using the aufbau principle, Pauli Exclusion Principle, and Hund's rule students also learn how to use the periodic table to draw electron configuration diagrams and abbreviated electron configuration diagrams, which introduce topics such as valence electrons and lay the foundation for bonding theory.
