Many teachers believe that the hardest chemistry topics involve a lot of math such as stoichiometry, acid/base equilibrium, or kinetics. Evidence from 10 years of responding to questions in a teacher discussion forum suggests that many teachers struggle with a math-free topic: the structure and properties of covalent substances.

In this webinar, M. Ford will share common questions from teachers about covalent bonding, discuss why they are more challenging than they look, and provide approaches to help teachers and students make sense of this secretly challenging topic.
