Purpose of Experiment: We did this experiment in order to further our understanding of the difference between monoco's and dicots by growing mung beans and corn.
Predictions: I predicted the mung bean was a monocot and corn a dicot. When I observed the mung bean I noticed that it split evenly apart which led me to believe it has two cotyledons. Corn on the other hand shattered in many different pieces leading me to believe it has only one cotyledon.
Observations: Over the course of this experiment I noticed my mung bean sprouted before my corn and more than my corn. The corn sprouted from the bottom and the mung bean sprouted from the middle.
Findings: I found that corn is a dicot and mung beans are monocots. I realized this when I seen my peers leafs on their plants the corn had parallel veins throughout the leaves and web veins in the mung bean leaves.
Limitations/Changes: The first day I watered my plants with water from summers house, then I started watering my plants with water from Animas High School I put once I put a couple sprays of cleaning chemicals they died.
Photosynthesis Interactive Lab
Purpose of Experiment: We did this photosynthesis lab in order to learn how leaves transform carbon products into oxygen products during the process of photosynthesis. Results: All ten of mt leaf disks were floating by 15 min under the white light.
