GCSE - Bonding and structure of substance

May 12, 2020 Barry A

A great summary of four types of bonding and structure

As a teacher of Chemistry, I sometimes see students struggling to use the correct words when describing the structure and the properties of substances. Without the correct words, marks disappear very quickly. 

An easy way to think about this is as an extension of the solid-liquid-gas particle diagrams that students learn early in their Chemistry studies. On top of that basic idea, you then need to talk about the types of particles, how the particles are arranged, and the forces between the particles.

This resources is a useful, one-page summary of the key ideas.
