With atoms and molecules seamlessly floating and interacting with background shots filmed around the world (in the Amazon Rainforest, Hawaii, and other exotic locations) students learn bonding principles for ionic and covalent bonds and rules for drawing Lewis structures. In addition, there is a bonus chapter detailing Lewis structures for over forty organic molecules. Uniquely presented, the visuals found within this text have helped label this text, “a must have” to enhance the students understanding of bonding principles and how to draw Lewis structures in a logical, step-wise manner due to clear explanations as well as the plethora of supporting examples found within each chapter topic. Runtime for visuals total approximately: 40 Minutes
From Ivy League Colleges to local High Schools our products help thousands of students master the basics of chemistry!
Our visuals are being used in over 30 countries in hundreds of colleges and high schools!
