I'll expect you to memorize the name and the symbols of the first 20 elements, plus about thirteen additional common elements. What are the common elements? Listen carefully in class. When you've memorized these element names (correct spellings) and symbols try the self-test.

I'll expect you to know the formula for ALL of the elements in the periodic table. This is really not too bad. For the majority of the elements in the periodic table the symbol and the formula are the same, except for hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine, phosphorus, sulfur, chlorine, bromine and iodine. Can you find these formulas?
