  • Aligned with Big Idea 1 and Essential Knowledge 1.A.1, 1.A.2, 1.A.3, 1.A.4, and 1.C.2
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7

Utilize Wisconsin Fast Plants® to explore the conditions of Hardy-Weinberg in a population.

  • Learn the conditions of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium
  • Learn how allele frequencies are calculated
  • Calculate data using the Hardy-Weinberg equation
  • Determine whether populations are evolving based on allele frequencies

Using direct counting, students calculate the allele frequency of traits such as stem and leaf type in a population of Wisconsin Fast Plants®. They compare the results with the calculated allele frequency determined by applying the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium model. Students then design their own experiment to prove the model. The 1-Station Kit includes materials for 1 group of 4 students.

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.
