Addresses AP® Biology 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. Using chromatography, students identify separate plant pigments and identify the plant’s chloroplasts based on Rf values. Students then explore the effects of environmental factors on the photosynthesis reaction in different plants using DPIP indicator solution and a spectrophotometer. Materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.
Understand the major impact of light and the plant pigment chlorophyll on the process of photosynthesis.
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.

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.
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.
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.
