Carolina Investigations® for Use with AP® Biology: Evolving Enzymes 8-Station Kit (with voucher)
Students investigate enzyme kinetics and the evolutionary relationship of catalase in 4 different species as they work toward understanding how natural diversity affects interactions with the environment. In the Guided Investigation, students conduct an experiment on catalase concentration and reaction rate, then they investigate the evolutionary relationship of catalase among 4 species. In the Inquiry Investigation, students design an experiment to further investigate enzymes. Kit includes enough materials for 8 groups. Note: Kit includes a prepaid coupon to request perishable material later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable material.
Unit 3: Cellular Energetics, topics 3.3: Environmental Impacts on Enzyme Function and 3.7: Fitness
ENE-1 The highly complex organization of living systems requires constant input of energy and the exchange of macromolecules.
SYI-3 Naturally occurring diversity among and between components within biological systems affects interactions with the environment.
The Pre-Lab takes approximately 45 minutes of preparation, the Guided Investigation takes approximately 65 minutes of preparation, and the Inquiry Investigation takes approximately 30 minutes of preparation.
The Pre-Lab takes approximately 30 minutes. The Guided Investigations takes approximately 75 minutes. The time required for the Inquiry Investigation will vary based on students' plans.
