I can predict the composition of an ionic compound from its chemical formula.
I can relate the properties of ionic compounds to the structure of crystal lattices.
I can describe how covalent bonds form and the attractions that keep atoms together in molecules.
I can compare polar and nonpolar bonds, and demonstrate how polar bonds affect the polarity of a molecule.
I can compare the attractions between polar and nonpolar molecules.
I can recognize and describe binary ionic compounds, metal with multiple ions, and polyatomic ions.
I can name and determine chemical formulas for ionic and molecular compounds.
