Product Details

Engaging review and interactive demonstration activities help students explain and predict mechanisms of biological regulation. Part of Big Ideas 2 and 4. Sample AP-style essay questions included!
• Diffusion—Add a twist to the classic dialysis tubing experiment. Acids and bases cause an indicator to change color as they diffuse through the dialysis tubing. What ions are involved? How does the cell membrane regulate the concentration of electrolytes?
• Buffers—Buffers provide essential pH regulation in cells, blood, and the lungs and kidneys. Demonstrate the composition, reactions, and mechanism of buffer action.
• Organism Regulation—Identify the different ways organisms regulate their bodies and respond to the environment with a colorful set of organism and habitat cards.

Practical, interesting and effective way to prepare students for the essay questions on the AP Biology Exam! Sample data and questions help students apply concepts from different topics within the broader context of regulation.

Includes enough materials to perform each activity at least three times.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
HS-PS1-5. Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
HS-LS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis.
HS-LS2-1. Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
HS-LS2-4. Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
HS-LS4-4. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
