  • Experiment kit designed to teach students about enzyme reactions, either catabolic or anabolic
  • Using turnips and provided materials, students will measure the rate of enzyme reactions and determine how different factors affect them
  • Kit contains enough material for 8 groups, including chemicals, and student exercise copymasters
  • This experiment is designed for use in AP Biology classrooms and coursework, and meets AP Science Practices 4, 5, 6, and 7, as well as Big Idea 4
  • Safety data sheets included to inform safe storage and maintenance of chemicals

Students will learn the nature and specificity of enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Students will then use an extract of turnips to examine the reaction betweeen hydrogen peroxide and the enzyme peroxidase while testing one or more factors that influence the rate of enzyme reactions. In this lab students will develop data collection strategies and analyze their results. This kit contains enough materials for 8 groups. Safety data sheets, teachers manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included. Meets AP Science Practices 4, 5, 6, and 7, as well as Big Idea 4.
