This unit is designed for Advanced Placement Chemistry as a review and extension of topics introduced in first year chemistry. Students will review the different types of bonds and intermolecular forces to help them make predictions about the properties of materials and analyze data and draw conclusions. In class, students will utilize this information to better understand how they can predict the properties of materials and how scientific data help us understand properties and interactions of materials.
The unit culminates with an inquiry lab where students are tasked with deducing the type of bonding in a sample of a solid based on the chemical and physical properties associated with different types of bonds and intermolecular forces.
