Ionic Bonding Game
In the Ionic Bonding game, players bond together ions to create target ionic compounds of specific cation to anion ratios.

Through observing the interaction between ions of similar charges vs. ions of different charges, players are introduced to attraction and repulsion.
Players must ‘activate’ an equal number of positive and negative charges to successfully create a compound with an overall neutral charge.
To satisfy a target, players must create ionic compounds of specific cation to anion ratios (1:1, 1:2, 2:1, 2:3, 3:2).
Ions and Ionic Bonding
In these connected levels, there are ions missing from the bank. Players must return to the Ions game to build the missing ions that they need to create the target ionic compounds in the Ionic Bonding game.
Acids & Bases and Ionic Bonding
In these connected levels, there are ions missing from the bank. Players must return to the Acids & Bases game to create the missing ions that they need in order to build the target ionic compounds in the Ionic Bonding game.
