Students will learn the necessary components and conditions for photosynthesis
to occur while using leaf disks to measure the accumulation of oxygen and relate
it to the rate of photosynthesis. Students will then use guided inquiry to design
and conduct an experiment to examine the effects of a chosen variable on the rate
of photosynthesis. Teachers manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are
included. There are enough materials provided for 8 lab groups. This lab meets AP
Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7, and Big Idea 2.
