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

The Periodic Table is a common topic throughout Science curriculums so a solid understanding of the subject can help students in future classes.

In this class, students will look at how the periodic table is arranged in terms of their atomic number and electron shell structures. They will then arrange the electrons of the first 20 elements into the correct configurations.

Having a solid understanding of the Periodic Table layout will allow students to understand future lessons a lot easier having a good knowledge base to build upon.
