Description: A pretty neat table shown at 6:35 to always get the order of the electron shells right. It helped me because I didn't have to worry about remembering that the D-orbitals are 1 minus and F-orbitals are 2 minus the period number. A really small thing to remember but our lecturer said that "Some people _will_ forget this!" and in that same worksheet in the lecture I indeed forgot that rule. The video is at a lot lower level than required for this course, but it's a kind of nice very basic summary of some concepts and I found myself filling in reasons for what he was saying with what we learned in class!
