Atoms are made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. In this class, students will gain a better understanding of the structure of the atom and its subatomic particles. Students will also learn why atoms have equal numbers of protons and electrons before learning how to calculate relative masses from isotopes. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 but is a great class for any student interested in science!
