Lesson 15 – Ionic bonding

Lesson Description

In this lesson, students learn how to rationalize the formation of ionic bonds. They interpret the periodic table to predict the most likely oxidation state of elements. This allows them to predict the correct stoichiometry of the compounds. We also introduce ionic interactions in biology, including salt bridges and the concept of the counter ion.
