The Periodic Table gets it's name because elements are lined up in cycles or periods. 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. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 and is a great class to help ensure students have a solid understanding on the topic.
