What is the significance of categorizing bonds as sigma or pi?

It's very VERY important to categorize sigma/pi bonds-- it helps us determine hybridization in our homework problems. It can also help determine the shapes of molecules. It's a crucial topic that we learn in the syllabus that will also be covered on the final

They help give us the shape of the molecule by giving a 3D interpretation.
Pi bonds are perpendicular to the plane of hybrid orbitals which are sigma bonds.

They are used to predict the behavior of molecules in molecular orbital theory, which describes the electronic structure of molecules.

This is extremely important as you want to classify the difference between the different orbitals between the bonds.

Having the knowledge of whether a bond is a sigma or a pi bond allows one to figure out the structure of the molecule
