The purpose of this project is to provide lab kits to all Advanced Placement Biology students to conduct laboratory investigations to complete the Advanced Placement Biology Curriculum. The students will use their kits independently and collaboratively with other students to develop a better understanding and application of biological concepts. The project will address the needs of the students by providing access to lab kits designed for the Advanced Placement Biology Curriculum. The lab ktis are equivalent to the kits used at the college level but will allow are students access in the high school setting. These kits are a requirement for class participation and are utilized all year as a teaching tool as well as on the Advanced Placement Exam. The project will serve students enrolled in the Advanced Placement Biology Class (seniors who perform above standard proficiency). Sixty-four percent of our student population is white, thirty-five percent is black, and one percent is Hispanic. The gender composition is fifty percent males and fifty percent females. In accordance with the Federal Child Nutrition guidelines, 64% of our students qualify for free or reduced priced lunch. The goals for this project are: *To demonstrate a better understanding of biological concepts through laboratory experience. *To improve investigation skills and proficiency. *To develop and understanding of Cellular respiration, Transpiration, and Animal Behavior. *To ensure that all students have the opportunity to experience "hands-on" laboratory experiment. The following biological Kits will be necessary for the project: Cellular Respiration kit Transpiration Kit Animal Behavior Kit. Laboratory experience is invaluable to the Advanced Placement Biology Course. I want my students to have all the tools necessary to pass the exam and receive college credit for the course. I believe this lab kits are one way of doing so.
