Students examine the genetics of a population and consider how allelic frequencies can provide evidence about the evolution of species. Students model a population using cards to represent individual alleles, then collect phenotypic data from a population of Wisconsin Fast Plants®. Using direct counting and the Hardy-Weinberg equation, students determine the frequencies of the 2 alleles. Then students design and conduct an experiment to investigate population genetics further. Kit includes enough materials for 1 group of students.

Unit Connection
Unit 7: Natural Selection, topics 7.4: Population Genetics and 7.5: Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium

Standards Connection
EVO-1 Evolution is characterized by a change in the genetic makeup of a population over time and is supported by multiple lines of evidence.

Time Requirements
The Pre-Lab takes approximately 30 minutes of preparation, the Guided Investigation takes approximately 60 minutes of preparation, and the Inquiry Investigation takes approximately 30 minutes of preparation.

The Pre-Lab takes approximately 45 minutes. The Guided Investigation takes approximately 60 minutes for Activity A and 30 minutes on each of 2 days 1 week apart for Activity B. The time required for the Inquiry Investigation will vary based on students' plans.

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Biology Kits

Teach AP® Biology Your Way with Support from a Name You Can Trust

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.


Exclusive kits from Carolina

Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.


Inquiry made simple

Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
