• reaction kinetics - rate graphs, orders, equilibria
  • measurement of concentrations
  • investigations with enzymes - effects of temperature, pH, inhibitors - enzyme kinetics
  • quantitative determination of biological molecules - sugars, protein, vitamins,
  • quantitative determination of inorganic ions - nitrate, phosphate, etc
  • population growth of micro-organisms
  • and many more that inventive teachers and students will discover.

The investigations described on this website use mainly simple techniques and apparatus.They provide creative opportunities to develop and demonstrate skills of planning, presentation, processing and analysis of data, graph work, error assessment, etc. The open-ended nature of the suggested practicals provides plenty of opportunity for extended investigations and for students to develop their own modifications.
