Elaborate on what can be learned about the properties by the location of element on the periodic table. Use atomic number 13 as an example.
It is a non-metal, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a -3 charge, and is brittle, moldable, and non-conductive.
It is a metalloid, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a -5 charge, and is workable, inelastic, and non-conductive.
It is a main group metal, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a +3 charge, and is ductile, malleable, and conductive.
It is a transition metal, has 1 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a +1 charge, and is ductile, malleable, and conductive.

Alright, so looking at the Periodic Table I am able to tell that Aluminum falls under Atomic Number 13. Now, Aluminum is a metal because it has the ability to donate 3 electrons & as per the definition of metals, metals are substances which donate valence electrons. Aluminum also contains lustre. Lustre is a thin coating containing unoxidized metal that gives a glaze to ceramics.
By the information I gave you above, which one do you think it is? :)
