Meets AP Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7
- Preassembled respirometers for quick preparation
- Easily converted to an inquiry lab
- Available for individual student use or class-size kit
Through the construction and utilization of a microrespirometer, students will measure and record the rate of oxygen consumption related to cellular respiration. Then, using germinating seeds versus a non-germinating control sample (acrylic beads) they'll evaluate the results obtained. Finally, through self-designed experimentation, students will investigate the effects of various factors on the rate of cellular respiration.
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.
