Polar-Covalent Bonds: a bond between two non-metals where the electrons are unequally shared. -Jillian Charland

Shmoop Chemistry explains Bonding: Covalent and Ionic Bonds. Part of our Types of Bonds and Orbitals Learning Guide. Learning and teaching resource for Bonding: Covalent and Ionic Bonds written by PhD students from Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley

Drawing dot and cross covalent bonding diagrams.docx

This worksheet clearly explains how to draw dot and cross diagrams for covalent compounds, using as an example. Pupils are then asked to practise drawing dot and cross diagrams.

ionic and covalent bonding animation: excellent explanations, also shows electron dot structures in this very good animation

Ionic bonding formed when one atom has sufficient strength of attraction to remove ion from the other atom. Covalent bonding occurs when neither atom has suf.

Covalent bonds are the sharing of electrons to reach octet and ionic are the transfer of electrons from one element to another.

Charles Faulkner this helps me remember them Chemical bonding; Covalent =sharing to fill octet, easily broken up like dating, Ionic =bonded by charge/marriage

This worksheet is designed to help students understand covalent bonds. Students will be drawing lewis dot diagrams and bond diagrams for each compound/molecule. Students will be lead through increasingly difficult problems as they progress through the worksheet. By the end of the worksheet, they will not be given the chemical formula- they will instead determine how many of each atom they need in order to make a stable compound/molecule.

This cartoon demonstrates a covalent bond, because atoms work with others to gain their octet, in water, the oxygen and hydrogen fulfill this purpose by creating a hydrogen bond.

BBC Bitesize can be a handy revision tool when it comes to exam time! This website could be used as a 'treat' in the classroom in that the teacher could book the computer suite to complete some online revision and tests. Pupils love getting to work on computers!

GCSE Bitesize Revision - Science Comprehensive coverage of GCSE science topics which have been arranged by exam board specifications. Interactive quizzes to test your knowledge, but don't wait for revision time before you try it out.
