Unit 3 Bonding, Molecular Shapes, Attractions

Study Guide for Unit 3 is located here

What happens when atoms make friends?  Bonding is one of those quintessential things to understand before you can go further in this course.  To be discussed: the intentions behind bond formation, Lewis structures, types of bonds (ionic, covalent, and metallic), bond polarity, multiple bonds, VSEPR Theory (molecular geometry), and molecule polarity.
