In an ionic bond, one atom looses all its outer electrons (leaving behind a filled inner shell) while another atom gains electron(s) to fill its valence shell.

When you draw an ion, don't forget  [ ] and a charge.

The two ions attract each other according to Coulombic interactions.

Look the metal has no valence electrons and the nonmetal is full. Always!!!!
