Look up the octet rule and how it relates to ionic and covalent compounds. Be sure you are comfortable naming ionic (including polyatomic ions and multivalent metals) and covalent compounds. Finish the practice questions assigned in class. Complete the periodic table family/group presentation and be ready to present next class (Monday). Please share the presentation with me by Sunday night. Thank you.

Be sure you have read about Lewis dot structures and the rest of 4.1 in the text.
