Predict the ground state electronic configuration and/or orbital diagram for a given atom or ion.
Predict characteristics of an atom or an ion based on its location on the periodic table (e.g., number of valence electrons, potential types of bonds, reactivity).
Explain the relationship between the electron configuration and the atomic structure of a given atom or ion (e.g., energy levels and/or orbitals with electrons, distribution of electrons in orbitals, shapes of orbitals).
Relate the existence of quantized energy levels to atomic emission spectra.
