Ionic and covalent bonding
The most important skill you will learn in this chapter (a skill you need to master and apply in every chemistry lesson hereafter) is naming compounds, and writing formulas for compounds. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRACTICE
This link will give you a set of notes for Chapter 7:
And this link will provide slides for section 7-1 (Ionic Bonding) from Mrs. Powell:
This link provides the slides for section 7-2 that Mrs. Powell created:

Left side activity suggestions for your lab notebook:
Draw pictures of how you think the electron density cloud might appear around some compounds you are already familiar with: salt (NaCl), and water (H2O), and glass (SiO2). How did you decide which elements within each compound carry the greater density of electrons? How did you represent electron density in your drawing?
Find a site on-line that talks about "chemical nomenclature" or "chemical naming". Study the website thoroughly. Complete any problem sets available. Write a one paragraph review of the site in your journal. Would the site be useful for helping other students master the chemical naming rules? More helpful than other resources you've seen? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the site.
