Carolina Investigations® for Use with AP® Chemistry: Vitamin C in Fruit Juices by Redox Titration Kit

Item # 840584 Exclusive This product is exclusive to Carolina Biological Supply.

Determine the concentration of ascorbic acid in a commercial fruit juice by redox titration. Titrate solutions of known ascorbic acid concentration to create a standard curve, then titrate a sample of fruit juice and determine the concentration of ascorbic acid from the curve. Fruit juice connects redox and titration to the real world and captures students' interest. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in teams of 3.

Determine the concentration of ascorbic acid in a commercial fruit juice by redox titration. Teach this laboratory experience using either the guided activity or inquiry activity. In the guided activity, students titrate solutions of known ascorbic acid concentration to create a standard curve then titrate a sample of fruit juice and determine the concentration of ascorbic acid from the curve. In the inquiry activity, students design an experiment to determine the concentration of ascorbic acid in a sample they choose.

The inquiry activity provides an opportunity for students to present their experiment's design and results, reinforcing the practice of communicating findings. Detailed preparation and procedure notes guide you, the teacher, through leading a successful inquiry exercise, including a suggested rubric for assessing student performance.

Both activities include assessment questions that follow the format of the AP® Chemistry exam free-response questions. In the assessment, students write and balance half-reactions and net ionic equations for 2 different redox titrations and use the data provided to calculate the concentration of analyte in each experiment. These exercises give students practice working with multiple redox titration experiments as well as balancing complex redox chemical equations.

This kit provides the following AP® Chemistry experiences: design a procedure to collect data, analyze data, tabulate data, perform error analysis, write and balance chemical equations, and use volumetric glassware. The use of fruit juice connects the concepts of redox and titration to the real world and captures students' interest. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in teams of 3. Digital teacher's manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Vitamin C in Fruit Juices by Redox Titration teacher's manual. You can also access the digital student guide for this kit for free at Carolina Science Online®.
