Product Description
Complete lesson for Atomic Structure: Ions and Isotopes. Lesson includes identifying an ion, cations and anions—and how they are formed, determining the nuclear formula for ions and isotopes, what is an isotope, using the nuclear symbol and hyphen notation to differentiate between isotopes, and lots of practice during this interactive PowerPoint and lesson.

In this lesson students are introduced to ions and isotopes. By the end of the lesson students will be able to:
• Determine if an ion is a cation or anion, and describe how ions are formed
• Using the mass number, atomic number, and ion charge determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons
• Represent the ion and isotope in both hyphen notation and using the nuclear symbol
• Use the element’s periodic square to gain information needed to calculate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons
