During the teaching process of 6s2 inert pair effect in the course of inorganic chemistry, three teaching principles, "theorization, intuition and regularity", have been proposed accordingly. By using these principles, students can understand and master the concept of 6s2 inertia pair effect in a relatively relax atmosphere. In addition, the gap between the widely spread knowledge points as well as the difficulty of learning and the understanding ability of the students is reduced successfully. Meanwhile, the use of these principles is very helpful to cultivate students' abilities of comprehensive induction, and finding and solving problems, which can make the students feel the importance of systematicness of knowledge, methodology of solving problems and the ability training.
