Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

There are 118 elements, but what makes each element unique? This lesson covers the steps involved in the determination of the number of each subatomic particle present in each element atom, as well as their arrangement. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 and is an important topic to revise as the periodic table and atomic structure are key elements in Chemistry!
