Description

How would you like to be able write the formula for ionic compound without fail? How about naming them accurately? Have you been playing guessing game when it comes to writing the name or formula? Then this course is for you!

This course focuses on building the proper foundation to successfully write the formula and name ionic compounds. We will go through each concept in a step by step manner and practice on each concept before moving on to the next. There will also be additional practices (with answer key) should you wish to practice more. If at any point you are not clear with what is covered in the videos, please feel free to drop me a message. I am more than happy to help. I will be with you throughout the entire journey.  

Here's the list of topics we will cover in the course:

  • Ionic 101
  • Introduction to periodic table
  • Classification of elements
  • Electronegativity
  • Bond polarity 
  • Formation of cations and anions
  • Writing formula for 
    • binary ionic compounds
    • ionic compounds with polyatomic ion
  • Naming
    • binary ionic compounds
    • ionic compounds with polyatomic ion

You will master writing the formula and naming of ionic compounds once you complete this course. 

This course comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. So, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT EVERYTHING TO GAIN! Go ahead and click on that button to enroll and I look forward to seeing you in the course.
