Bonding I: Ionic Bonding and Lewis Structures

Now that you have a solid foundation in energy, electronic structure, and some simple periodic trends, we can expand your view of simple molecules. Understanding the structure of atoms helps us predict the structure and function of molecules.

(Chem Party)
The best things to study for this quest are end of chapter problems and the practice test. Focus less on memorizing factoids and more on practicing the material. The more you practice, the more you will naturally memorize your definitions. Remember that the textbook solutions guide is in our class library for you to check your work.
