@Enough As the resident chemist, 2 p orbitals up! This was fun. Don't forget to accept: Aluminum (US) as the US spelling, not just the rest of the world one. Also, I don't think you accept sulphur for the non-US spelling of that element. Caesium/cesium was ok.

Tellurium doesn't seem to be accepted for Group 16 (typo?).
Oct 2nd, 2010 at 14:19 GMT
Loved this quiz. I can say that there are no typos for the whole of group 1, nor for period 4. :)

Group 3 is boron etc and group 4 carbon etc. The transition metals don't have groups!!!!

@in06perkins: You know, I think you're right. I was just watching the news and it said that they took the entire middle of the periodic table out of the picture. It's now a separate grouping! No. You're wrong.

...perhaps you should also put the old system groups in parentheses. In case old people take this quiz.
Nov 11th, 2010 at 16:40 GMT
Old system? It's still the system they teach in UK schools, it is just the original system, not the old one.
Dec 12th, 2010 at 23:07 GMT
@thgil the old system is the periodic table the Dmitri Mendeleev first started out with

Damn you Transition Metals!

It's not the system taught in UK schools. It's the system taught in UK schools until you move on to advanced level and university chemistry.

I apparently cannot spell fluorine for my life.
Sep 3rd, 2011 at 13:42 GMT
I think it is taught differently in US and Uk schools I just added 10 and worked through it. Good quiz enough.
Feb 11th, 2012 at 21:22 GMT
Great quiz, I'd lower the time down to two minutes
Jul 3rd, 2012 at 01:50 GMT
Something about the game note: you say the quiz does not include lanthanoids or actinoids whereas the most common spelling is lanthanIDES and actinIDES.

I just missed some to the d-block ones. I also used up time because I couldn't spell cobalt. (kept spelling it cobolt)
