AP® Biology Investigation #13: Enzyme Activity
Biology Educational Materials
AP Biology Learning Activities
Students will learn the nature and specificity of enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Students will
then use an extract of turnips to examine the reaction between 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. Teachers manual and Student Study Guide
copymasters are included. Meets AP Science Practices 4, 5, 6, and 7, and Big Idea 4.
