Chapter 5: Naming Compounds/Writing Formulas
Here is an all-encompassing lesson on naming chemical compounds and writing formulas. It begins by using a color-coded periodic table to teach about the element groups: metals, transition metals, non-metals, and metalloids. Anions and cations are explained.

Chemistry students review the trends found in the organization of the periodic table by completing this worksheet. They determine which of the given atoms has the largest ionic radius and which is the most electronegative. This worksheet has 6 matching, 4 true or false, 10 fill in the blank, and 2 problems to solve.

Predicting the pH of Salt Solutions
More of an instructional handout than a practical worksheet, this resource explains how to predict the pH of salt solutions. It notes that most cations are acidic, whereas most anions are basic. To determine the pH of a solution, this information is necessary and is used to determine whether or not excess hydrogen or hydroxy ions result in a reaction.

After the Test. . . Improving Understanding
The heading that tops this assignment is humourous, but specifically directed at a group of chemistry kids who apparently did not perform very well on an exam. The questions that follow are meant to review concepts that they need additional practice with.

Review of Ionic and Covalent Compounds and Transitioning from Ionic to Covalent Compounds
Here is a unique assigment: compare and contrast ionic and covalent compounds in an extensive data table and then analyze Lewis dot structures in antoher. Three columns are to befilled in: "characteristic or feature," "applies to ionic bonds," and "applies to covalent bonds.

For this ions worksheet, students answer a variety of questions about anions and cations as well as the octet rule and valence electrons. Types of questions include fill in the blanks, true and false and matching. They solve 3 problems including drawing Lewis structures, writing the number of electrons lost or gained in ions and describing metal and nonmetal ions.

Charge and Electricity
In this charge and electricity worksheet, students read about electric charges and how they are created in atoms. They also read about the unit of charge, called the Coulomb, conductors, and insulators. Emerging electricians match 11 terms to their definitions, they identify charges on atoms, identify conductors and insulators and they label the parts of a charged particle or atom.

Naming Compounds Handout
In this naming compounds worksheet, students read through guidelines on naming different types of chemical ions and compounds then practice naming on their own. The naming compounds handout includes 100 practice problems in which they name ions, combine pairs of ions to make new formulas, write the ions and chemical formulas for compound names, name molecular compounds, name acids, and finish with naming additional chemical compounds by applying all they have studied in the packet.
