TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12: Types of Chemical Reactions - Chapter Summary
Let our instructors guide you through a review of key terms, concepts and theories of chemical reactions. Use your acquired knowledge to answer related TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12 test questions. Lessons in this chapter focus on the following topics:
- Predicting bond polarity and ionic character in covalent bonds
- Describing the VSEPR theory
- Examining hydrogen bonding and dipole-dipole and ion-dipole forces
- Discussing Van Der Waal's forces
- Predicting molecular shapes using orbital hybridization and valence bond theory
- Diagramming the molecular orbital theory
- Identifying organic and inorganic macromolecules
- Defining the uses and benefits of radioactive materials
These video lessons provide you with content-rich presentations and engaging visuals to help you prepare for the test. Usually less than 10-minutes long, the lessons can be re-watched as often as you need to fully grasp the materials. Video tags are also available to jump to the main points of a lesson.
TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12: Types of Chemical Reactions Chapter Objectives
The TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12 test is designed to assess the content knowledge of experienced science teachers working in Texas public schools. The test covers 6 content domains. The physical science domain, which includes questions on chemical reactions, accounts for 18% of the test. Use our lessons and multiple choice quizzes to review and practice answering these types of questions for your test. The test consists of 90 multiple-choice questions and 1 constructed-response case study assignment. Test takers have 5 hours to complete the test.
1. Covalent Bonds: Predicting Bond Polarity and Ionic Character
Learn about covalent bonds and their two types: nonpolar covalent bonds and polar covalent bonds. Discover how to predict the type of bond that will form based on the periodic table. Learn what ionic character means and how to determine it.
2. Hydrogen Bonding, Dipole-Dipole & Ion-Dipole Forces: Strong Intermolecular Forces
Learn about intermolecular vs. intramolecular forces. Learn the different intermolecular bonds (including hydrogen bonding and dipole-dipole and ion-dipole forces), their strengths, and their effects on properties, such as boiling and melting points, solubility, and evaporation.
3. London Dispersion Forces (Van Der Waals Forces): Weak Intermolecular Forces
Learn how London dispersion forces are created and what effect they have on properties such as boiling and melting points. Discover this weak intermolecular force and how it is one of the Van der Waals forces.
4. Metallic Bonding: The Electron-Sea Model & Why Metals Are Good Electrical Conductors
Learn why metallic bonding is called the electron sea model. Discover why metals bond the way they do and why they are shiny, malleable and conduct electricity well.
5. Intramolecular Bonding and Identification of Organic and Inorganic Macromolecules
Understand what a macromolecule is and be able to identify both organic and inorganic macromolecules. Organic molecules include proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids.
