Logo for Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis 1: Ben's Bad Day
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 situations that lead to changes in Ben s blood pressure, pH, glucose, osmolarity, and... More

Part one of three excellent interactive exercises that investigate the concept of homeostasis. Students are required to draw conclusions from information and data provided. This is a very difficult concept for students. Very well organized and well written. Uses "typical" events in a student's day. Used in my classes.
