  • Aligned with Big Ideas 2 and 4 and Essential Knowledge 2.A.2, 2.A.3, 2.B.3, 2.D.1, 4.A.2, 4.B.1, and 4.C.1
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7

Understand the major impact of light and the plant pigment chlorophyll on the process of photosynthesis.

  • Use chromatography to separate plant pigments
  • Calculate Rf values from collected data
  • Study photosynthesis with isolated chloroplasts

Understanding the process of photosynthesis and the pigments involved has never been easier. Using chromatography, students separate plant pigments from their own samples and then identify the plant’s chloroplasts based on Rf values. Continuing their exploration, students then study the impact of various environmental factors on the photosynthesis reaction rates in different plants using DPIP indicator solution and a spectrophotometer. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. Kit is shipped with perishable material.

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.
