Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Types of Chemical Bonds Kit

Item # 840576 Exclusive

Addresses AP® Chemistry Big Idea 2 and Learning Objective 2.22. Teach this using either the guided or inquiry activity. Guided activity: students classify 12 solids as ionic solids, covalent network solids, molecular solids, or metallic solids based on properties they test. Inquiry activity: students test the properties of 4 solids, develop their own set of characteristics to distinguish between each bonding type, then apply their rules to classify 8 more solids. For 30 students in teams of 3.

  • Aligned with Big Idea 2 and Learning Objective 2.22
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

Explore the 4 types of bonding in solids and learn about intramolecular and intermolecular forces. Teach this activity using either the guided activity or inquiry activity. In the guided activity, students classify 12 solids as ionic solids, covalent network solids, molecular solids, or metallic solids based on properties they test. Students learn about the intramolecular forces and intermolecular forces that affect the strength of attraction between atoms. In the inquiry activity, students test the properties of 4 solids, develop their own set of characteristics to distinguish between each bonding type, and then apply their rules to classify 8 additional solids.

The inquiry activity provides an opportunity for students to present their experiment's design and results, reinforcing the practice of communicating findings. Detailed preparation and procedure notes guide you through leading a successful inquiry exercise, including a suggested rubric for assessing student performance.

Both activities include Big Idea assessment questions that follow the format of the AP® Chemistry Exam free-response questions. In the Big Idea assessment, students apply their new knowledge of intermolecular and intramolecular forces to explain observed trends in boiling point, melting point, and solubility of substances.

This kit provides the following AP® Chemistry experiences: design a procedure to collect data, analyze data, observe physical changes, use models to explain observed results, and justify claims with evidence. The number and variety of substances tested give students a great experience developing skills of observation and analysis. Supplemental activity sheets on drawing Lewis dot structures and a periodic table of electronegativity values help students understand the spectrum of bond polarity. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in teams of 3. Digital teacher’s manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Types of Chemical Bonds teacher’s manual. You can also access the digital student guide for this kit for free at Carolina Science Online®.

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Kits That Support the AP® Curriculum

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Chemistry Kits

If you are an AP® teacher, you go out of your way to help your students perform successfully on the AP® Exam. Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry Kits are specifically designed to help you do just that.

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry kits are specifically designed to meet the goals of the revised AP® Chemistry curriculum. That curriculum and our kit series center on 6 overarching BIG ideas, which provide the themes for an enhanced laboratory experience focused on inquiry-based, student-directed learning:

  • Big Idea 1: Atoms
  • Big Idea 2: Chemical and Physical Properties
  • Big Idea 3: Changes in Matter
  • Big Idea 4: Rates of Chemical Reactions
  • Big Idea 5: Thermodynamics
  • Big Idea 6: Chemical Equilibrium

The AP® Chemistry curriculum emphasizes science practices, which allow students to use the tools of scientists to discover, test, and explain natural phenomena. The science practices of AP® Chemistry are integrated into each lab in the Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry series.

  • Science Practice 1: Modeling
  • Science Practice 2: Math
  • Science Practice 3: Scientific Questioning
  • Science Practice 4: Data Collection
  • Science Practice 5: Data Analysis
  • Science Practice 6: Using Scientific Explanations and Theories
  • Science Practice 7: Connecting Concepts

All Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry kits offer:

  • Two teaching approaches: a guided activity and an inquiry activity
  • Big Idea assessment questions modeled on the AP® Chemistry Exam’s free-response questions
