I needed a clean, scalable (vector)graphic of fleming’s left hand rule that I could freely use in my resources, so resorted to drawing my own. I thought I would share it. If anyone would like to use the editable SVG version or postscript or EPS etc, contact me.

Electronic configuration and atomic structure Drag & Drop

(0)
A Drag & Drop exercise for building up the electronic structure of atoms. After a short cartoon for building up an atom of calcium, students build up four atoms by drag and drop. Could be used projected on the whiteboard or by students individually at computers. Double click on the full atomic structure.html file and it will open in your browser. I made it big for projection, but it can be made smaller by zooming out using the browser zoom control. A preview is available at https://www.doctorexe.com/d-d-electronic-configuration.html Please note: in order to provide a rich interactive experience, my drag & drop resources are mini-web sites local to your computer. After unzipping, they comprise a folder containing the main .html file and another folder containing the graphic resources and my coding to make the resource work. Double click on the .html file and the resource will work. If, however , you move or delete any of the files from this hierarchy, the resource will not work.
