Title Molecule Polarity- Inquiry and Applications
Description This was used in class or as a homework depending on the class schedule.The students worked with Build a Molecule and Molecule Shapes before this. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: •Define bond polarity and molecular polarity •Explain the relationships between bond polarity and molecular polarity •Identify tools/representations to approximate bond and molecular polarity Use these common tools to approximate and compare polarity • Use standard notation to indicate polarity •Identify the bonds between atoms as nonpolar covalent, moderately polar covalent, very polar covalent, or ionic.
