Naming Types of Periodic Systems

The Prompt

“Write down an example of a periodic system from any context.”



Wrap Up

Although very common in solid state physics, periodic systems can be found in a multitude of contexts in physics or otherwise. This activity challenges students to think about periodic systems in contexts they have previously encountered. By asking this question, the instructor can also gauge how familiar the class is with periodic systems and help clarify any inconsistencies in student answers that are not considered a periodic system.
