Equations are everywhere in science so it's important to learn how to correctly write them! In this class, students will be guided through how to correctly write chemical equations for commonly seen phenomena such as combustion, corrosion and neutralisation.  Students will also learn how to write the state symbols and be introduced to the concept of balancing equations. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is also excellent preparation for GCSE, where the comprehension of balancing equations is vital.
