Bonding at our level of chemistry is both interesting and not too difficult. There is some vocabulary, and we are bringing back naming compounds and writing formulas.
We will look at shapes of molecules, how atoms bond together, how ions bond together, and how to draw the molecules with LEWIS DOT DIAGRAMS, then structural diagrams as well. The lab for bonding will demand you make about 25 different molecules with balls and sticks and springs. Below is a diagram that shows the ball and stick and the structural diagrams for three different hydrocarbons.
