### Drawing Hybrid Orbitals

Will we need to know how to draw hybrid orbitals? If so, do you essentially pick the energy shell (n) with orbitals that match the number of electron densities around the atom?

I don't think we will need to draw hybrid orbitals, but I am not sure. If we do. You would just use the diagram for the valence electrons of the central atom and show that the orbitals can be hybridized, or mixed, with each other to form sp or spd hybrid orbitals.
