This is an introductory lesson into chemical bonding and molecular shapes. This power point introduces valence shell electrons and the Lewis dot structure. It explains how an ion is created through the processes of oxidation and reduction. The lesson goes over the differences between ionic compounds and covalent compounds while providing examples. The topic of molecular shape is also addressed and the formulas are given to explain how to determine the shape in a visual.
