Ward’s® AP Biology Investigation 12: Interactions: Behavior

Avg. Ratings: 5.0 (1 Review)
This investigation meets AP Science Practices 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

  • Students Observe the Behavior of a Variety of Insects and Identify Stimulus Materials
  • Updated Illustrations Aid in Sexing the Organisms
  • Investigation Prepares Students for College- and Research-Level Labs
In this investigation, students explore the tendencies of fruit flies and/or pill bugs to move toward or away from important stimuli that aide in their survival. Within a controlled environment of a choice chamber, chemotactic behaviors of the organisms are observed and patterns can be identified. Students will formulate their own inferences based on the composition of the tested materials and the organisms' responses, and then determine what materials and experimental paradigms should be tested further.

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 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, and apply problem-solving skills to strengthen student inquiry.
