5.0 out of 5 stars Phosphorus, Iodine, Sulphur... what's next? 14 Dec 2012
By Hal Marshall TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I bought these for my two little home-educated relatives. At least, that was what I told their parents - it was the only way they would agree to go halves with me. Truth be told, these were bought for ME. Oh, I share them... when I have to. But they're mine.

These are visually quite breathtaking, certainly in the amount of data each card manages to incorporate about its respective element. On the front, a photograph of the element or, in the case of some of the more elusive substances, some sort of picture appertaining to it. On the back, pretty much each element's complete life story. Everything you ever wanted to know (and quite possibly a fair bit you didn't) about the entire periodic table, presented in an extremely informative way. What is also brilliant is the way each card interacts with its colleagues, making it easy to compare the elements. This is particularly handy when comparing things in the same groups.

Actually, the fact that I really don't want to share these cards actually makes them much more attractive to my two little friends. The more I cry and beg for their safe return, the more they seem to want to play with them. Strange.

Should you ever struggle for a reason to have this card deck in your home there is even one card which has some salutary hints for you. Arranging the elements in order of melting point, for instance... or any number of variations on 'Go Fish'. Or, the most entertaining suggestion of the lot, using the chemical symbols as some kind of 'phonetic' alphabet. That's a good one to use with children although, of course, adults generally have a wider vocabulary. Now then, where was I? Phosphorus, iodine, sulphur... .

5.0 out of 5 stars Element Collection reference 27 Feb 2012
This product is a must for anyone having an interest in the building blocks of nature. It is comprehensive, fascinating, easy to store and quick to retrieve. Holds all the information for a dedicated science lover, and is an excellent 'quick' reference guide which is highly portable. Another good product worth buying.

I have the book and love the images and so purchased these for use in my science classroom. They are high quality with great info on the back. They also make a huge periodic table which is bluetacked to my wall!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cards but I prefer the book. 2 Aug 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
These cards are great, but the one thing that information about the elements should include is 'what their main use is!!' Fundamental information like this is missing from my children's education. I guess the statistics are more useful if you're doing a degree in chemistry. For educating children in chemistry you are better off getting his book..."The Elements", in which he does tell you the elements main uses.

The cards are a bit thin but the graphics are of top quality. Perfect for a 7 year old to get introduced to Chemistry.

Really smart design. Filled with information and amazing pictures. The only thing missing is where the element was discovered, otherwise perfect.
