There are 66 objectives to be covered by upcoming chemists if they complete this two-chapter assignment. It encompasses all of the information needed to deal with covalent bonds and molecular geometry. Colorful diagrams display the molecular orbital structures. Charts are used to compare them. Practice problems and vocabulary definitions abound!
In "The Nature of Covalent Bonding," chemistry hopefuls demonstrate an understanding of various types of covalent bonds, electron configuration, and resonance structures through fill in the blank, true or false, and matching questions. They complete the worksheet by drawing three electron dot structures of compounds.
Four pages provide plenty of problem solving practice for chemistry whizzes. They answer questions and write electron configurations for ions. They use Lewis dot diagrams to display equations. Covalent bonds are explored. The last half of the assigment is made up of a chart in which learners write the number of valence electrons, the Lewis structure, molecular shape, bond angles, polarity, and resonance.
On this note-taking sheeet, chemistry learners list elements as metals or non-metals. They differentiate between ionic and covalent bonds. They draw Lewis structures for both types of bonds. This would be a terrific teaching tool when introducing ionic and covalent bonds.
Five pages provide extensive exercise when studying covalent bonding and molecular geometery. College level or AP chemists relate bond length and strength, order elements in terms of electronegativity, fill in data tables describing molecular shape and bond angles, and draw Lewis structures for a variety of compounds. Use this as a chapter review or exam.
Prepare a time lapse video of fruit candies acting as atoms moving toward each other to form ionic or covalent bonds. After showing it as a demonstration, have lab groups work together to create a similar video. Over the time period suggested, the concpts of sharing, losing, or gaining electrons is reinforced.
An extensive resource for chemistry, this series of exercises and accompanying information could be used as review or added curriculum. Have your class read the information and complete the exercises for homework, or in class. Your choice! The resource covers compounds, ionic and covalent bonds, ionic formulas, atomic mass, molar mass, and more. Take a look and see what this has to offer!
Flowing coherently, this slide show will take your chemistry aces from understanding simple covalent bonds, to naming binary and ternary compounds. Direct instruction and practice problems make this a complete lesson. Show these slides as a support to your lecture and then assign more practice problems as homework.
First, high school chemists fill in a chart for seven elements to show the numbers of protons, electrons, valence electrons, and electrons needed to full the outer shell. Then combinations of elements are listed. Instructions say simply to follow the teacher's instructions, which could be to draw Lewis dot diagrams for each covalent bonding situation.
This is simply a reading passage about how covalent bonds are formed and what makes them polar. Keep this on hand for chemistry kids who happen to be absent on the day that you teach these concepts. There are three questions addressing them at the top the page that are answered within the text.
In this chemistry worksheet, students complete the chart for each of the given elements by naming the number of protons, electrons, Valence electrons, and the electrons used to fill the outer shell. Then they complete each covalent bond that follows. There are six covalent bonds to solve on the sheet.
This is an online exercise in which chemistry learners answer a series of multiple choice questions about bonding. Topics addressed include ionic and covalent bonds, electronegativity, ions, valence electrons, resonance structure, and the octet rule. When learners submit, the correct answers get highlighted in green, and if they made errors, they are highlighted in red. This is a terrific way to study for an exam.
Making models is always memorable. In this activity, physical science starters examine the structure of hydrocarbons using marshmallows, raisins, and toothpicks. They even act as atoms themselves and link arms to represent covalent bonds. The lesson is simple to execute, but superb in results!
A very neat worksheet has been produced by Pearson Education, Inc. for use in a general chemistry class. The first nine questions are fill in the blanks for a paragraph about types of bonds and electronegativity. Five true-false questions and five matching descriptions follow. This would make an ideal pop quiz!
An organized table charting the different types of chemical bonds arrays this resource. The octet rule, ionization energy, and the naming of compounds are also reviewed. Young chemists answer review questions in multiple choice fashion. They can check their answers with those listed at the bottom of the page, making this a terrific pre-exam review.
