2/1 – Wednesday – B Day – 

Main focus: 


a) To write Lewis Dot Diagrams for covalent or molecular compounds                                              b) To determine if the the covalent bonds are polar or nonpolar.

c) To determine if covalent bond is a single, double, or triple bond.
d) To name molecular compounds

Period  9:
1.  Complete the Covalent activity 1 as a class.
    a) Rules for Covalent naming compounds.
            -Binary and Hydrocarbons
2.  Start Covalent Activity 2.

                                                        Rules for Covalent – Molecular Naming.

                                                 1. Name the first element first, followed by the second element.

                                                 2. Use the element name plus the suffix -ide for the second element.

                                                 3. If there is more than one atom of the first element, use numerical prefixes;

                           4. Always use numerical prefixes for the number of atoms of the second element.
