Interactive video lesson plan for: Lewis Structures - Dot Diagram, Formal Charge, Molecular Geometry, Resonance, Polar or Nonpolar

Activity overview:

This chemistry video tutorial explains how to draw lewis structures of molecules and the lewis dot diagram of polyatomic ions. It shows you how to calculate the formal charge, how to draw the resonance form of the lewis structure and how to determine the hybridization of the central atom. It also discusses molecular geometry / vsepr and the bond angles that are found in common molecules as well as if the molecule is polar or nonpolar. This video contains plenty of formulas, notes, examples, and practice problems that will help you on your next worksheet assignment or upcoming quiz. This video contains all the answers / solutions to the problems posted.
