Octet Rule

We continued our study of Lewis Dot Structures by investigating the Octet Rule through the lens of double and triple bonds.  Students applied the HONC 1234 rule with their understanding of valence electrons (octet = eight electrons) to build molecules that share one or more bonds.  We worked through the Lesson 32 PowerPoint and then students used the Lewis Dot puzzle pieces from Lesson 31 to work through the Lesson 32 worksheet.

Notes from the whiteboard:

Remaining class time was utilized to read Lesson 32 in the textbook, summarizing the main ideas in the Chapter 6 Notes and working through the practice problems at the end of the lesson.
