Experiment Overview

In this experiment, students investigate and compare amylase activity in different life stages of barley. The experiment allows students to make connections between concepts and processes previously covered in lectures and reading materials and is relevant to learning and skills development in the scientific method and related areas such report writing and the interpretation of results. With regard to theoretical and conceptual knowledge, the practical investigates the function of an enzyme in a living organism and explores concepts around the ontogenic regulation of metabolism in an organism as it develops. Development of skills in the scientific method and the communication of science are also important components of this exercise.
