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 is a useful class for students who have already studied the subject and wish to revise the topic or for those who want to get ahead.
