Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis
This tutorial/simulation consists of three topics. In topic 1, students learn how blood glucose, pH, and other variables are maintained at stable levels by homeostasis, and what conditions result from imbalances in the variables. Students follow Ben, a fellow “student,” through a bad day in which they interpret Ben’s physiological reactions and determine how his organs and organ systems will interact to restore his homeostasis. Students encounter realistic, yet humorous... More

A well written, highly interactive exercise that investigate homeostasis. Uses a variety of  examples starting with a "typical" bad day in the life of a student. This is a vital and not easily understood concept.  Very well written and well organized. Requires students to draw conclusions from information presented.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Flash player
