Carolina Investigations® for AP® Biology: Population Genetics and Evolution 8-Station Kit

SKU Code: 747510

  • Aligned with Big Idea 1 and Essential Knowledge 1.A.1, 1.A.2, 1.A.3, 1.A.4, and 1.C.2
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7

Utilize Wisconsin Fast Plants® to explore the conditions of Hardy-Weinberg in a population.

  • Learn the conditions of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium
  • Learn how allele frequencies are calculated
  • Calculate data using the Hardy-Weinberg equation
  • Determine whether populations are evolving based on allele frequencies

Using direct counting, students calculate the allele frequency of traits such as stem and leaf type in a population of Wisconsin Fast Plants®. They compare the results with the calculated allele frequency determined by applying the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium model. Students then design their own experiment to prove the model. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.
