This is a 85-slide Power Point presentation used to explain some of the fundamental concepts of covalent and ionic bonding. It covers various bonding topics including: electronegativity, bond polarity, electron configurations of ions, bond energies, localized electron model, lewis structures, exceptions to the octet rule, resonance, and the VSEPR model. Animations and concept checks are embedded in the power point to make sure your students are following each major concept in this unit. Fully editable! Great animations! Topics discussed are listed on the preview slide.
Didn't get a chance to finish all the notes in one class period? It's easy to pick back up where you left off teaching because of the hyperlinks on the topics slide! Helpful animations and step by step examples are sure to enable your AP chemistry students learn these imperative concepts with ease.
