  • Aligned with Big Ideas 1, 2, 3, and 4 and Essential Knowledge 1.A.1, 1.A.2, 1.B.1, 1.B.2, 2.D.1, 3.A.1, 4.A.1, and 4.B.1
  • Emphasizs Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7
  • Includes investigations of the relationship between catalase and hydrogen peroxide
  • Offers bioinformatics techniques using both DNA and amino acid sequences
  • Aids in the construction of phylogenetic trees and the discussion of evolutionary relationships across multiple organisms
Students explore in-depth the interactions of enzymes and substrates through a hands-on activity that helps them understand enzyme kinetics. After investigating the relationship between enzymes and substrates, students conduct a bioinformatics analysis to explore the evolutionary relationship of catalase in 4 different species. Combining their earlier lab experiences, students then design their own investigations focused on exploring the impacts of environmental conditions on catalase and/or the activity of catalase from various enzyme sources. Whether you are familiar with the traditional enzyme lab or looking for an alternative approach to teaching enzyme interactions in your classroom, the kit’s combination of activities, inquiry-driven focus, and correlation to multiple Big Ideas truly makes it a must for any AP® Biology classroom. Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Biology Kits

Teach AP® Biology Your Way with Support from a Name You Can Trust

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.


Exclusive kits from Carolina

Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.


Inquiry made simple

Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
