Bonding Theories in General Chemistry

 Applying Lewis Model, VSEPR, Valence Bond and Molecular Orbital Theories. 

     **The Concept Map** 

 â€¢Prepare a concept map on “molecular shapes”. The concept maps must include the following “categories” (information): Octet rule, Lewis and VSEPR theory, Valence Bond(and hybridization), and Molecular Orbitals.

     **Construct a virtual 3D model**

Choose a molecule with everyday life application, like a drug, natural biological, organic synthetic, other. The Molecule must contain the following 

 â€¢10 atoms•At least 1 double and/or triple bond (sigma and pi bonds).

ʉۢPrepare a 3D model (virtual). Virtual: you can use an app (3D Molecules Editor), oronyour computer (, or any other you find.

     **Show and Tell** 

Write an essay (1000 words) including the following:

ʉۢExplaining your concept map.

ʉۢTell 3 facts about the molecule you choose

 â€¢Use your concept map to explain your model. In your explanation include the following information: pi and sigma bonds, hybridization and, if present, resonance and “charge distribution”(electron rich/electron poor areas).
