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.
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.
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.
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.
