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

All substances are held together by different types of bonds. 

In this Chemistry class, students are going to expand on the topic of ions and ionic bonding which they may have studied in lower school.  This lesson addresses the idea of ion formation and ionic bonds between metal and non-metal atoms.

This is a great class to build a firm understanding of the topic where students will gain examples to support the knowledge they learn.
