A great revision tool for GCSE students when learning how to construct symbol equations in chemistry . Test students regularly on the list of compounds and ions so they can build their knowledge on this topic

Step by Step checklist on how to balance any symbol equation. To support this checklist there is a worked example document with two examples of balancing equations using the steps from the checklist.

Creating a safe learning environment is important during pracitical activities. This Practical Routine is great for practical based subjects such as science, food tech, design techology and art. These rules can be delivered during a practical lesson or it can be used as displays in your classroom
