ions atoms with either a positive or negative electrical charge
cation atoms that lose electrons and have a positive charge
anion atoms that gain electrons and have a negative charge
valence shell the outermost shell of an atom
valence electron the electrons found in the outermost shell of an atom
ionic bond type of bond where atoms give electrons to other atoms and there is an attraction between oppositely charged ions
covalent bond type of bond where electrons are shared between atoms
metals found to the left of the staircase on the periodic table, form ionic bonds with non-metals, lustrous, ductile, malleable, conductors
non-metals found to the right of the staircase on the periodic table, dull, brittle, do not conduct electricity
octet rule atoms want to have 8 electrons in their outer shell to be stable
oxidation number the total number of electrons that an atom either gains or loses in order to form a chemical bond with another atom

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
