Design an investigation in which catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide
Measure volumes and time using appropriate tools
Part 1: Overview of Experiment
Bozeman Biology Enzyme Catalysis Experiment
Part 2: Demonstration of Catalase activity
Identify possible variables that can be controlled or manipulated to carry out an independent investigation. Watch videos to get some ideas:
Video Experiments -
Part 3: Discuss Safety Concerns and Personal Protective Equipment Needs for carrying out your investigations.
Part 4: Communicate with your group and come to a consensus about which variable you will manipulate in the investigation for tomorrow.
1 - Write your procedure.
2 - Share your materials and procedures with your teacher.
3 - Begin assembling materials for your experiment.
Prepare for tomorrow's investigation
