It’s All in the Shape: Discovering Molecular Geometry
Using the PhET Molecular Shapes: Basics simulation, students will discover the ideal geometries for 2 through 6 electron pairs. Students will illustrate shapes via wedge diagrams (instructions provides) and practice examples that can be checked using the simulation. Students should have an understanding of bonding and able to draw Lewis dot structures.
