FlinnPREP Inquiry Labs for AP® Biology

The number of investigations and amount of time needed for each AP® Biology lab can leave students overwhelmed and wondering how the hands-on experience will help them achieve exam success. FlinnPREPTM Inquiry Labs for AP® Biology help teachers and students unpack the lab concepts saving valuable class time. Online resources give students an overview of each lab with specific tips and techniques. Students come to class prepared and can more easily make the connection with AP® exam content through review, practice and increased comprehension.

  • Each lab begins with an introductory video of the concept being covered. In addition, there are questions connecting the lab to the AP® exam content along with reteach videos to facilitate a deeper understanding. The lab ends with a summary video.
  • A variety of topics covered include mitosis, photosynthesis, evolution, water potential, genetics, artificial selection, diffusion and osmosis, cellular respiration, transpiration, enzyme activity and fruit fly behavior!
  • Your students can watch, pause, rewind and re-watch pre-lab concept, technique and procedure videos tied directly to advanced inquiry AP® Biology investigations.
  • You can choose to run each investigation in multiple ways with access to digital procedures, downloadable inquiry-based pdfs, and downloadable pdfs with a a step-by-step procedure for each lab. A digital dashboard allows you to track student performance on assessment questions.
