All matter is made of particles. The particle theory of matter attempts to describe the behaviour of these particles in solids, liquids and gases, whilst explaining their similarities and differences. This class covers the particle model of matter, as well as changes in the arrangement of particles in all three states of matter. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 who want to feel confident on the subject!
