The student will be able to:
- Describe how enzymes affect reaction rates
- Perform an experiment that allows them to describe factors that affect the reaction rate of enzymes
- Follow appropriate lab practices and choose appropriate tools for data collection and manipulation
- Present lab results in mini poster form
This lab experience is designed to give the students a basis of enzyme rate function to build upon. We start with a common lab example and then the students explore enzyme rate of reaction further. They are to come up with changes to the example experiment to test what different factors affect the rate of reaction of the enzyme catalase.
