This tutorial covers basic atomic structure and its relationship to the Periodic Table of the Elements. It is at the junior high school level and will show you how to figure out the number of subatomic particles in an atom (the protons, neutrons and electrons) as well as working out the electron configurations of the first 20 elements.

The course includes a video tutorial (about 10 minutes long) as well as a worksheet to practice drawing the atomic structure of the first 20 elements, and a separate document with the answers worked in full.
