    The periodic table is important because it makes a lot of important chemical trends easier to understand and remember. Going across a row in the periodic table, atoms slowly become bigger with larger nuclei and more electrons; this causes important chemical changes. Going down a column in the periodic table, atoms have larger "clouds" of electrons surrounding them, which also leads to chemical changes and differences in how atoms interact with one another. In addition, the periodic table can be a useful chemistry reference. It makes a lot of information easy to access and make sense of for each element, such as atomic weight, electron configuration, and number of protons in the nucleus. There is too much useful information embedded in the periodic table for me to cover in one post, but I hope this reply will help get you started.
