This unit is about Bonding. Topics include the following: Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding and Shapes of Molecules. Molecules actually have shapes to them, they aren't all in straight lines. These shapes also contribute to the molecules properties and are a major focus in the study of pharmaceuticals and many other molecules.
IT - IsaacsTeach. This is an online series of tutorials and guides to help with AP Chemistry Topics. They are very well done and align to our class quite well.
MR - Mark Rosengarten. This is similar to IsaacsTeach but covers some different topics. These are often more entertaining than the usual science videos.
TT - Teacher Tools. Teacher Tools is a set of reference materials, worksheets, and self-quizzes to assist in practice.
Q - Quizlet. This will be a link to a Quizlet on the topic.
Animation - A short clip usually under two minutes long.
PPT - This is an abbreviation for PowerPoint. Some are originals and others are from other sources.
Podcasts - Podcasts are audio lectures on a topic. Practically all of them on this page are going to be original so it is a good way to reinforce a lecture.
PH - Resources with this code are from a previous textbook that I used.
A Short note about animations and videos.
There are several sources for a complete library of chemistry videos and animations. For the tutorial videos, I have gone through many of the sources and have chosen two of them that I think are the best. I looked for the ones that were the clearest, and most entertaining.
