Bonding: Atoms and their Eternal Search for Happiness, part 1

Bonding: Atoms and their Eternal Search for Happiness, part 1

Author: Nick Johnson
Description:

Students will learn the difference between ionic and covalent bonds as a means for atoms to achieve chemical stability.  Students will also learn how to create models that demonstrate the differences between the two bonding types.

The tutorial contains five videos.  The first three are mandatory for viewing and explain the differences between ionic and covalent bonding.  The last two are optional and may be viewed by students who need extra help understanding the material in the first three videos.

Required video #4 - Covalent vs. Ionic Compounds

This video explains why ionic and covalent bonds only form between certain types of atoms AND the form these compound types take on in real life.
