AP Biology: Pre-Lab Write-Up

Lab #___ Lab Name: ______________________________


Before 7:45 on the day of the lab, LabBench quizzes must be emailed to me. (You can simply highlight the text and copy it into an email document.) These can be accessed at the following URL: http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/

After reading the Lab Handout instructions and completing the LabBench Tutorial and Quiz, answer the following questions for each section of the lab. LABEL EACH SECTION CLEARLY (e.g. A, B, C or D and 1, 2, or 3) and LEAVE A SPACE BETWEEN EACH SECTION (e.g. A, B, C, or D) of the lab. This write-up should be COMPLETED on your desk from the moment the bell rings on the day of the lab.

  1. What is the purpose of this section? (What is being studied?)
  2. What is your hypothesis concerning this section? (How will one variable change as a result of the other?) Note: Identify the independent and dependent variables here by writing and circling “(IV)” and “(DV)” where appropriate.
  3. Explain, in detail, the scientific reasoning behind your hypothesis (hypotheses).

(Much more space, and lines to write on found on hyperlinked “PRE-LAB WRITE-UP” above)

DRAWINGS: In the space below, include drawings of the treatments for each section where it is relevant. Indicate reagents, quantities, times and any other pertinent information. Number each step and circle that number. You should be able to use these drawings as your lab instructions! LABEL EACH SECTION CLEARLY!!
