The Chemistry of Life
After studying the different aspects of atoms and their reactivity, pupils will find this summary PowerPoint useful for review. Some of the slides are informative with labeled diagrams; others give important vocabulary. Teachers may want to take sections of this slide show to use as a supplement to other chemistry lessons.
Lewis Structures For Molecules
For this chemistry worksheet, students read and investigate lewis structures and information upon subjects like polarity. The worksheets have an abundant amount of reference material.
For this bonding worksheet, students read about the two different types of chemical bonding: ionic and covalent bonds. Students review ion notation and oxidation numbers. This worksheet has 24 fill in the blank, 2 drawings, and 4 short answer questions.
Ionic, Covalent, and Metallic Bonds
Sal introduces students to the ways that atoms "stick together" by bonding. Students see that the process of atomic bonding is what creates molecules. He outlines specific examples of atoms combining through covalent bonding, polar covalent bonding, and metallic bonding. Previous knowledge of how electrons are given away and taken by elements would come in handy when viewing this presentation for the first time.
Convalent Networks, Metallic, and Ionic Crystals
If you've ever wondered why crystals are so strong and hard, Sal does a fine job of explaining, in chemistry terms, why this is so. Crystals are great examples of covalent networks; which are the strongest and hardest substances in the chemical world. Boiling points and the strength of covalent bonds are used to illustrate how weak or strong a chemical bond is.
Chemistry of Carbon - Building Blocks of Life
A great review of the structure and function of carbon-based molecules important to life, especially with relevance to humans. The chemistry behind the combination of polymers and the breakdown of bonds is covered. Valuable content in this slideshow is the collection of diagrams of each functional group.
Worksheet 13 - Chemical Bonding
Here is a thorough review of chemical bonding! Seventeen problems query chemistry learners about electron configuration and ionic bonding, sharing electrons and covalent bonding. Chemistry masters draw Lewis dot diagrams and answer questions about electronegativity.
Identifying Ionic and Covalent Bonds
In this bonds worksheet, learners complete a graphic organizer by determining if the compounds given are metals or non-metals and if it has a covalent or ionic bond.
Unit 3 Bonding
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.
Page one of this resource displays a chart of five different types of solids: metallic, ionic, covalent, molecular, and atomic. The forces that hold the particles together are also described. On page two, junior chemists consider different compounds and determine what type of crystals they form, name predominant molecular forces, and compare boiling points. Answers are included at the bottom of the page, therefore this is best used as a review of concepts.
Bonding, Part A
Starting with a list of definitions and helpful tips for investigating electronegativity and bonding, this question sheet is comprehensive in focus and in its question style. Many types of questions or realistic situation are available, where students have to consider rules of polarity and bonding type. Your class should also draw Lewis Dot structures for the molecules given. A good sheet to keep along with notes for further review.
In this bonding worksheet, students read about the octet rule in bonding, ion notation, ionic bonds, covalent bonds and oxidation numbers. Students write 2 ion notations, they determine if 8 sets of ions will make compounds, they draw 2 covalent bonds, they find the oxidation numbers of 10 atoms and they make 2 ionic compounds.
In this compounds worksheet, high schoolers are given a bag of colored gumdrops that represent specific atoms. They construct ionic and covalent bonds with gumdrops using the key provided and the compounds to build. They fill in a chart with bond type, a diagram of the gumdrop model and a Lewis dot structure.
Naming and Covalent Compounds
In this naming and covalent compounds activity, learners name 12 compounds using a chart of polyatomic ions if needed. They also draw covalent bonds in 6 compounds and answer 6 questions about ionic bonds, covalent bonds and polyatomic ions.
WS 3.4 Bonding
For this bonding worksheet, students answer questions about ionic bonds and covalent bonds. They draw Lewis structures for compounds and show the molecular structure with the bonds between atoms.
The Ties that Bind
In this bonding worksheet, students read about the types of bonds that hold compounds together. They are given fifteen common materials and they identify the types of bonds that hold each together.
The Chemistry of Life
After studying the different aspects of atoms and their reactivity, students will find this summary PowerPoint useful for review. Some of the slides are informative with labelled diagrams, others require sentences to be completed with important vocabulary (not included). Teachers may want to take sections of this slide show to use as a supplement to other chemistry lessons.
In this chemical bonding worksheet, students compare ionic bonds and covalent bonds, use Lewis dot structures to show transfer electrons, and balance equations. This worksheet has 17 word problems.
In this covalent compounds worksheet, students answer 8 questions about bonding in covalent compounds, covalent bonds, and diatomic molecules. Students draw 2 dot diagrams showing covalent bonding. They answer 4 questions about bacteria and antibiotics.
Water Basics: Let's Get Physical
Students explore the four physical properties of water (high surface tension, high boiling and freezing points, high specific heat capacity and density anomaly).
