Unformatted text preview: 1. Understand the basic organization of the periodic table. 2. Use the table to determine atomic mass (mass number) and atomic number. 3. Use the table to determine the number of valence electrons in biologically important atoms (C, H, O, N) 4. Find elements with similar properties based on locations within the table. 5. Identify the parts of an atom and the number of protons and electrons in atoms and ions. 6. Predict polarity of covalent bonds within molecules on the basis of relative electronegativities of elements. 7. Compare/contrast: nonpolar and polar covalent bonds (be sure to use electronegativity in your answer). 8. Compare/contrast: covalent bonds, ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds and Van der Waals interactions...
