The periodic table of elements arranges elements in order of Atomic Number, Reactivity and Relative Atomic Mass. The columns are called 'Groups' the rows called Periods. It mostly contains metals on the left side and non-metals on the right. There are basically 8 groups of elements that as you go down the group the element becomes more reactive.
