Recall the examples I did in class.
regions of electron density = number of hybrid orbitals

If the central atom has four regions of electron density then select sp3 as the bonding model.
E.g., CH4 and NH3

See lecture notes for examples and additional details.

This is a great topic to discuss in peer learning sessions.
