P.12.A.4 Students know atoms bond with one another by transferring or sharing electrons. E/S
P.12.A.9 Students know the number of electrons in an atom determines whether the atom is electrically neutral or an ion. I/S
Next Generation Science Standards
HS-PS1-a Evaluate the merits of different atomic and molecular representations based on their ability to explain a given property of matter or phenomenon
HS-PS1-b Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outer energy levels of atoms
Read Chapter 6.1 Ionic Bonding
Outline the reading in your Science Notebook & include major points and diagrams/tables.
You should focus on the following essential questions:
- When is an atom unlikely to react
- What is one way elements can achieve stable electron configuration
-How does the structure of an ionic compound affect its properties
