Review textbook pages in Chapter 6 pp. 175- 203 (top of page). Look over Chapter summaries on
page 208. Review lab, video questions, Pogils, notes, activities, and practice problems.
Be able to write electron dot notations, molecular geometry, and shape identity. Also, be able
to determine type of bonds and molecules represented in various compounds.
Remember this is just a guide! We have practiced, read, discussed, and covered all concepts on
test in a variety of ways in and out of class.
