Practical 1 - Investigate the effect of caffeine on the heart rate in daphnia.

Practical 2 - Investigate the vitamin C content of food and drink.

Practical 3 - Investigate membrane structure, including the effect of alcohol concentration or temperature on membrane permeability.

Practical 4 - Investigate the effect of enzyme and substrate concentrations on the initial rates of reactions.

Practical 5 - Prepare and stain a root tip squash to observe the stages of mitosis.

Practical 6 - Identify sclerenchyma fibres, phloem sieve tubes and xylem vessels and their location within stems through a light microscope.

Practical 7 - Investigate plant mineral deficiencies.
