Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (VSEPR)

Unit 3: Unit 3: Bonding & Periodic Table Trends
Lesson 8 of 9

Objective: Students will be able to determine the shape of molecules using VSEPR theory as evidenced by taking notes, performing a molecule lab, and doing whiteboards.

Big Idea: Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (VSEPR) allows chemists to infer the shape of molecules.
