There are 118 elements on the periodic table as of 2021. In this class, students will be guided through how the periodic table is arranged in terms of their atomic number and electron shell structures. Students will then arrange the electrons of the first 20 elements into the correct configurations. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 and is an important concept in chemistry so students need to have a good understanding of it!
