I can recognize stable electron configurations.

I can predict an element’s chemical properties using number of valence electrons and electron dot diagrams.

I can describe how an ionic bond forms and how ionization energy affects the process.

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.
