CA- California K-12 Academic Content Standards
Subject : Science
Grade : Grades Nine Through Twelve
Area : Chemistry
Sub-Strand : Chemical Bonds
Concept 2: Biological, chemical, and physical properties of matter result from the ability of atoms to form bonds from electrostatic forces between electrons and protons and between atoms and molecules. As a basis for understanding this concept:
a: Students know atoms combine to form molecules by sharing electrons to form covalent or metallic bonds or by exchanging electrons to form ionic bonds.
b: Students know chemical bonds between atoms in molecules such as H 2 , CH 4 , NH 3 , H 2 CCH 2 , N 2 , Cl 2 , and many large biological molecules are covalent.
c: Students know salt crystals, such as NaCl, are repeating patterns of positive and negative ions held together by electrostatic attraction.
d: Students know the atoms and molecules in liquids move in a random pattern relative to one another because the intermolecular forces are too weak to hold the atoms or molecules in a solid form.
e: Students know how to draw Lewis dot structures.
f: Students know how to predict the shape of simple molecules and their polarity from Lewis dot structures.
