Meets AP Science Practices 1, 5, 6, and 7
- Practice slide preparation techniques using updated illustrated instructions
- Observe mitosis and meiosis in both plant and fungal cells
- Available for individual student use or class-size kit
Students will study the cellular steps and regulatory checkpoints involved in DNA replication and cell division in both mitosis and meiosis. This series of investigations will allow students to examine the visual features of mitosis in tissue preparation, and investigate crossing over in meiosis and resultant DNA exchange. Then, students will formulate questions and design experimental strategies to influence the rate of reaction.
The Only Kits Aligned with AP Science Practices. Ward's AP Biology Investigations provide complete coverage of the Four Big Ideas and Seven Science Practices to help you meet new AP Biology curriculum standards and prepare students for real-world success in college and research-level labs. Each investigation follows a series of three parts, beginning with a structured lab investigation, followed by a related guided inquiry investigation with thoughtful assessment questions, and finally, suggestions to encourage students to formulate their own questions and explore further self-guided experimentation. This complete series of investigations emphasizes the progression to fully student-directed investigations and builds competence in all of the science practices, helping students:
•Practice concept application instead of fact memorization.
•Focus on self-guided experimentation instead of step-by-step lab procedure.
•Investigate real-world concepts with greater curriculum flexibility.
•Apply problem-solving skills to strengthen student inquiry.

Individual student kit contains reduced quantities of materials to perform most activities, but on an individual student basis; for the best experience, use the SLIDES version which includes the microscope slides (miscroscope required); alternatively, if no microscope is availble, use the CARDS version which replaces slides with cards for easy viewing.
