Describes the electron configuration notation approach to indicating the electron configuration of an atom.
Electron shells on the periodic table must be filled in a particular order that reflects their distance from the nucleus of an atom. You can imagine this like students filling up a bus from back to front. Try it here! Place the students in their seats from back to front and see if you can figure out what element they would be if the rows of bus seats were electron shells.
Provides guided examples for more complicated electron configuration problems - ones that include the d or f subshell.
