  • The elements are arranged in order of increasing atomic number. This means elements with simlar properties are in the same column or group.
  • The elements are also split into metals and non-metals.
  • The metal elements are found on the left-hand side of the table and more than 3/4s of the elements are metals
  • The non-metals are found on the right-hand side of the table and less than 1/4 of the elements are non-metals
