Addresses AP® Biology Big Idea 4 and Essential Knowledge 4.A.5, 4.A.6, and 4.B.4. Students master the Winkler titration method for measuring dissolved oxygen concentrations. Using this tool, they measure dissolved oxygen fluctuations to assess the relationships between species in an aquatic food chain. Materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.
Explore dissolved oxygen consumption in the presence of producers and consumers in an aquatic food chain.
Help your students make a big picture connection across communities and populations by characterizing food webs and other factors, such as predation and abiotic factors. Students master the Winkler titration method for measuring dissolved oxygen concentrations. Using this tool, they measure dissolved oxygen fluctuations to assess the relationships between species in an aquatic food chain (Daphnia, Chlorella, and Hydra). After understanding the dynamics of the aquatic food chain, students introduce new variables to design their own experiment using the producers and consumers. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.

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.
