OAE - Integrated Science: Chemical Properties & Bonds - Chapter Summary

This chapter provides you with an overview of the periodic table, its elements and their common characteristics. The lessons help you review atomic numbers, chemical properties and formulas, and much more. By the end of the chapter, you will have covered:

  • The difference between atomic numbers and mass numbers
  • The different groups and periods in the periodic table
  • Chemical properties and formulas
  • The many different chemical bonds

Each lesson has a short quiz attached. These quizzes are in the same multiple-choice format as your upcoming exam. By familiarizing yourself with the types questions you may see on the exam, you could feel more confident answering exam questions and achieve a higher score.

OAE - Integrated Science: Chemical Properties & Bonds - Chapter Objectives

The OAE Integrated Science exam is three hours long, computer-based, and includes 150 multiple-choice questions. The exam is made up of four content domains: life science, earth science, physical science, and the nature of science. This chapter is part of the physical science domain. Physical science is the largest section of the test, with about 37% of the total exam questions.

11 Lessons in Chapter 7: OAE - Integrated Science: Chemical Properties & Bonds
Atomic Number and Mass Number

1. Atomic Number and Mass Number

Atoms are the basic building blocks of everything around you. In order to really understand how atoms combine to form molecules, it's necessary to be familiar with their structure. In this lesson, we'll dissect atoms so we can see just what really goes into those little building blocks of matter.

The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

2. The Periodic Table: Properties of Groups and Periods

How is the periodic table like the map you used on your last road trip? In this lesson, you will be introduced to the periodic table, the road map of chemists. We will discuss how the elements are organized and how you can use this organization to identify some of their major physical properties.

What Are Elements?

3. What Are Elements?

Look around you. What do you see? Elements are everywhere. They are the building blocks of all matter on Earth. In this lesson, we will discuss what an element is, how elements are written as symbols, and how elements are the building blocks of all matter.

How Compounds and Molecules Are Built From Elements

4. How Compounds and Molecules Are Built From Elements

Did you know that elements are like people and have different personalities? A few elements are very shy and love to be left alone. Others are very social and prefer to hang out with friends. In this lesson we will discuss how elements build molecules and compounds.

What Are Chemical Properties? - Definition & Examples

5. What Are Chemical Properties? - Definition & Examples

Characterizing substances by their properties is essential in identifying them. In this lesson, you'll learn how chemical properties give us clues about the nature of a substance by looking at some common examples.

What is a Chemical Formula? - Definition, Types & Examples

6. What is a Chemical Formula? - Definition, Types & Examples

Chemical formulas provide a lot of information about chemical substances, such as how many and what atoms they are made of, as well as the way the atoms are arranged. In this lesson, we'll discuss the different types of chemical formulas.

Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

7. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.

Chemical Bonds I: Covalent

8. Chemical Bonds I: Covalent

Mom always said that sharing is caring. This lesson will explore how electrons affect the chemical reactivity of atoms and specifically the merits of sharing electrons.

Chemical Bonds II: Ionic

9. Chemical Bonds II: Ionic

Did you know that the scientific name for table salt is sodium chloride? Find out how sodium and chlorine atoms come together to form your favorite seasoning.

Chemical Bonds III: Polar Covalent

10. Chemical Bonds III: Polar Covalent

Are you confused about how you can tell what kind of bond two atoms will form? This lesson will help you understand the difference between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds as well as how to predict how two atoms will interact.

Chemical Bonds IV: Hydrogen

11. Chemical Bonds IV: Hydrogen

This lesson defines and discusses important concepts behind hydrogen bonding. You'll learn when and why these bonds occur and which atoms are often involved.
