Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

How do we decide whether a substance is an acid, alkali or natural? What are the properties of theses substances, and how are they used?

In this class, students will focus on the use of an indicator, types of indicator, and properties of acids and alkalis to help them gain a better understanding of how to identify and describe acids and alkalis as well as providing examples for each!

By using examples alongside learning, this class will prepare students to apply their knowledge and feel confident entering any exam or teacher assessments.
