Carolina Investigations® for AP® Biology: Cell Communication

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Biology: Cell Communication
This kit is an engaging inquiry lesson where students observe communication between yeast cells. In teams, students design and conduct their own experiments to investigate the secreted yeast pheromones, a-factor and α-factor. Students then construct a 2-D model of cellular communication as an extension activity.

Encourage students to use the scientific model checklist to ensure their model is sound. Allow lab groups to switch models and critique them using the checklist. Go through as many refinements as time permits. Allow the class to select the best model and display it on a “Super Models” poster or wall.
