Atomic Structure

Enhanced E-bookDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

By asking questions, conducting investigations, and interpreting results, scientists now have a better understanding of what makes up the smallest unit of matter that has properties of an element. The Atomic Structure Enhanced E-book* uses investigative evidence to examine the structure of atoms and the parts that make up atoms. Additionally, this e-book looks at the forces that hold an atom and an atom’s nucleus together, isotopes, radioactivity, nuclear fusion and fission, and the energy contained in atoms.

*Enhanced E-books are highly interactive, self-directed learning experiences designed to augment understanding of science content and pedagogy. These e-books include high-resolution images, animations, videos, interactive simulations, and embedded assessment.

I am so happy I decided to purchase this e-book, I have used it with struggling students, and those that have missed a lot of class. It has turned out to be a great help for those that were struggling and allowing them to dig deeper into the subject matter and work independently.
