Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis 3: Does Ben Have Diabetes?

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis 3: Does Ben Have Diabetes?
Students learn about negative feedback regulation of glucose and play the role of doctor to determine if Ben, a fellow student, has diabetes. Students will: 1) learn about symptoms and causes of diabetes; 2) step through an animation depicting feedback regulation by insulin; 3) exercise their clinical thinking skills by completing a case study in which they examine Ben’s symptoms and family history of diabetes, interpret the result of his glucose tolerance test, and answer his questions about...

In this activity students assess and interact with a client/patient and learn about negative feedback loops. The information is fairly basic, and this would be a useful exercise for students who are having difficulty understanding the difference between negative and positive feedback. I appreciated the additional links that appear when you've completed the activity. It's nice to encourage the students to continue exploring.

Part three 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. Used in my classes.
