This entertaining and totally unique set of periodic chart flash cards assigns a cartoon representation to each of the 118 known elements of the periodic table. The cartoon can reveal an association, as wtih Helium, which is represented by a helium balloon, looking very pleased with itself, and as with Oxygen, which is represented by a scuba diver, since a constant intake of oxygen is necessary for plumbing the depths of the ocean without running out of air. For other elements, the cartoon derives from part of the name, which is highlighted. For example, Nit(rogen) is represented by a knight, and German(ium) is represented by a jovial fellow decked out in traditional German attire. Each element is also marked by its atomic symbol, number, and weight. Also included are two additional cards with four draw-it-yourself elements so you can make your own cartoons to better adapt the cards to your learning/memory style. As such, the poster proves an indispensible tool for studying and memorizing the elements, since everything is easier when one has recourse to a mnemonic device. An excellent gift for chemistry geeks, students and teachers; an excellent addition to the chemistry classroom, and a wonderful help for homework, tests and quizzes!
