    An introduction to the idea of balancing equations
    Laura LewisHost: Laura studied at Royal Holloway University of London and the Open University. She is passionate about science communication and has presented talks about Exoplanets at Oxford University and Imperial College London.

    In this class we are going to look at how to correctly write chemical equations for commonly seen phenomena such as combustion, corrosion and neutralisation.  We are going to learn how to write the state symbols and introduce the concept of balancing equations.  This is also excellent preparation for GCSE, where the comprehension of balancing equations is vital.
