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

A firm understanding of atoms is a key building block for future Physics education. 

In this class, students will cover the basics of subatomic particles, and the use of atomic symbols to define a group of elements as isotopes or not, with reasons why. They will also learn how to use both words and symbols when needed in exercises regarding isotopes.  

This is a very useful class for students to understand the knowledge behind the topic but also to allow them to apply this knowledge to exam or teacher assessment.
