LESSON ONE HOMEWORK
1. What is a good idea to have for this class? A back-up cauldron, for accidents can happen and you may need to use it, especially as a first year!
2. What are you required to bring to every class? Textbook, wand, and cauldron.
3. Define a potion in your own words. [10 POINTS] Any mixture imbued with magic that is usually brewed in a cauldron. As it is a magical mixture, it can have a number of effects on either someone who drinks it or uses it on themselves or another in any other way (as not all potions are drinkable liquids but may also be pastes etc.). They can have a variety of effects including healing, curses, changing the appearance or form of the object acted upon (i.e. polyjuice potion, shrinking solution), and the list goes on.
4. Are potions always drinks? No, they may also be pastes or ointments etc. so you can't always drink one!
5. What are potions also referred to as? They may also be concoctions, draughts, or elixirs.
6. Name the shop where you can buy potions and potion making supplies. Slug and Jigger's apothecary, which can be found in Diagon Alley.
7. Name the two professions related to Potions mentioned in the lesson. Potioneer (making potions) and apothecary. Usually the potioneer makes potions, and an apothecary will also make potions but is also more well known for selling them and other supplies for potions.

LESSON TWO HOMEWORK
1. Define an Antidote in your own words. An antidote is a medicine that can be used to reverse the effects of a particular poison in the most common sense of the word, but it also refers in general to anything that reverses an effect: be it of another potion, or a disease.
2. What book will you use in N.E.W.T. level Potions? Advanced Potion Making, by Libatius Borage
3. Is it a good idea to ask permission to read Most Potente Potions? No, for that book is in the restricted section for a reason I would assume and permission won't be given.
4. What items are provided to you by Professor Sawyer? Vials Mortar and pestle Scales Glass stirring rod Dropper Splicing knife Potion ingredients
5. Why is it a good idea to purchase the tools mentioned in the lesson? You will end up using these items again in later years and they won't always be provided for you, so it's best to invest early to get the most out of their use.
6. Name the three different types of cauldrons. Brass Bronze Pewter
7. Name the two different types of scales. Brass Silver
8. What should NOT be in your cauldron? Your textbook and pieces of parchment etc. Only potions and ingredients should go in, not things to carry.
