Unit 1A Chemistry Foundations

ATOMS LESSON

  • Learning Targets, for this lesson
    • I can define valence electron.
    • I can determine the number of valence electrons an atom of an element has.
    • I can predict electron gain/loss of an atom to achieve a full valence octet.
  • Learning Resources
    • textbook Ch 2, Sec 4 & 7
    • study guide Study Guide (pdf)
    • activity Guided Inquiry ChemActivity 10A - Valence Electrons
    • If you have your old Chemistry notebook, the following may help you with your foundational understanding...
      • for Sec 2.4, flame tests, look back to L17 (CH 4)
      • for Sec 2.7, valence and core electrons, look back to L18 (CH 4)

CHEMICAL BONDS LESSON

  • Learning Targets, for this lesson
    • I can write electron-dot structures for elements.
    • I can determine the number of valence electrons in a molecule.
    • I can draw electron-dot structures (Lewis structures) for simple molecules.
    • For a given Lewis structure with 2-4 electron domains around a central atom, I can predict the electron domain arrangement, bond angles, and shape name.
    • I can predict which of two elements has a higher electronegativity using a periodic table.
    • I can predict whether a bond between two elements is polar, nonpolar, or ionic.
    • I can predict whether a particular molecule is polar or nonpolar.

    • If you have your old Chemistry notebook, the following may help you with your foundational understanding...
      • for an overview of chemical bonds, look back to L26 (CH 5)
      • for molecular bonding tendencies, look back to L30 (CH 6)
      • for Lewis structures, look back to L31 (CH 6)
      • for the octet rule, look back to L32 (CH 6)
      • for VSEPR theory, look back to L37 & 38 (CH 6)
      • for molecular attractions, look back to L42 (CH 8)
      • for electronegativity and polarity, look back to L43 (CH 8)
      • for the electronegativity scale, look back to L44 (CH 8)
      • for bond and molecular polarity, look back to L45 (CH 8)

INTERMOLECULAR FORCES LESSON

  • Learning Targets, for this lesson
    • I can explain how the magnitudes of intermolecular forces relate to molecular structure and polarity.
    • I can describe the characteristics of molecules exhibiting hydrogen bonding.
    • I can predict relative water solubilities of a given set of organic molecules and explain the ranking based on the types of intermolecular forces that the molecules exhibit.
