Web Resources and Apps

Submitted by Will, Bucknell University
Course Level: 
Topics Covered: 

Part 5 of the Flipped Learning in General Chemistry Series. This video introduces valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory and teaches students to predict the geometry of a molecule from its Lewis structure.

Learning Goals: 

After watching this video and completing the assigned problems, students should be able to identify electron pair geometries and molecular structures, and create three dimensional drawings from Lewis structures.

Time Required: 
10-15 minutes
Evaluation Methods: 

A short problem set is assigned with the video

Evaluation Results: 

Most students are able to learn the content in this video independently
