Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered nomenclature of chemical compounds that involved metal and non-metals (ionic compounds). We also reviewed some additional polyatomic ions for naming. In addition to ionic compounds we reviewed naming for covalent compounds and the difference in strength aspects of ionic versus covalent bonding. We covered six types of chemical equations and how they will be used in predicting solubility of compounds. I also introduced the concepts of oxidation and reduction."
"We reviewed energy levels and valence count, ionization energy, and electron affinity. I reminded her that elements are neutral and have as many total electrons as protons, and as many valence electrons as their group number."
"I covered molarity, how to calculate the pH given molarity, unit conversion, and total dissolved solids."
