Atomic Structure And The Periodic Table

This test covers the unit atoms and the periodic table.   If you did not put your name in before starting this test you need to go back and do that before proceeding (a quiz with no name will score a zero).   You will also need a periodic table, the one located in the back of the textbook will be fine.
