The purpose for this project is to provide lab kits to all Advanced Placement Biology students to conduct laboratory investigations to complete the requirements for the Advanced Placement Curriculum. The students will use their kits independently and collaboratively to develop a better understanding and application of biological concepts. The project will address the needs of the students by providing access to appropriate lab kits designed for the Advanced Placement Biology Curriculum. The lab kits are equivalent to the kits used at the College level but will allow our students access in a 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 all students enrolled in the Advanced Placement Biology class (seniors who perform above standard proficiency level). Sixty-four percent of our students are white, thirty-five percent are black, and one is Hispanic. The gender composition is fifty percent male and fifty percent female. In accordance to the Federal Child Nutrition guidelines, 64% of our students receive free or reduced priced lunch. The goals for the project are as follows: *To demonstrate a better understanding of biological concepts through laboratory investigations; *To improve investigation skills and proficiency; and *To develop an understanding of Physiology of the Circulatory system and Population Genetics and Evolution. The laboratory experience in an Advance Placement Biology course is invaluable to the students. It will help to solidify their understanding of biological concepts and therefore allow them to do well on the exam. I want my students to have access to everything that is available to them in order to be successful both in the class and on the exam, and I believe the lab kits are a great place to start.
