Product Details

The bicycle race is over and the top three finishers have been accused of cheating by blood-doping, a means of artificially increasing the number of red blood cells in the body. Students become real-world lab technicians as they analyze red blood cell volumes in simulated blood samples. Students conduct a hematocrit of several simulated blood samples and compare their data with other groups’ test results. Critical-thinking and cooperative-learning skills are developed as together students analyze data and draw a conclusion—did any of the cyclists cheat? Includes complete instructions with reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, and valuable Teacher Notes. Complete for 15 groups of students. Activity is a chemical simulation and contains no actual blood or blood products.
