Understanding the calculation of net charge on an ion is made crystal clear using this simple tool.
Simple, yet very effective means for allowing lots of practice at learning symbols, names and charges of ions.
Like the element flashcard set found in Lesson 1, this is a Google Documents Power Point file. Click this link to open the file. Once opened, on the menu bar click “View” and then “Present.” A series of slides will begin. Navigate using your arrow keys. Unlike the element flashcard set, in this set you will see an ion symbol and charge presented first. The next slide gives you the name of the ion. Note that these are very repetitive in their sequence.
