Chemical Symbols on the Periodic Table of the Elements: A Multiple-Choice Quiz for Students and Homeschoolers

Periodic Table of the Elements

The Periodic Table of What???

  • If you are one of the few people in the universe who doesn't find the Periodic Table of the Elements just a tad confusing, you will probably zip through this quiz without a hitch. If, however, you are just one of us "common folk" you may have to think about things you haven't thought of in years, and be exposed to elements you never even knew existed.
  • Where the heck did all of these elements come from? When I was in college, some of them had not even been discovered, so I found this quiz a bit challenging. Home schoolers and high school students should find this quiz beneficial when studying the chemical symbols. I hope everyone finds it fun and entertaining.
  • Take the video crash course before attempting the quiz. It's a great way to learn.
  • Anyway, good luck!
