Homeostatic Systems--Mechanisms for Survival. Science IV.
Pfeiffer, Carl H.
The two student notebooks in this set provide the basic outline and assignments for the fourth and last year of a senior high school unified science program which builds on the technical third year course, Science IIIA (see SE 012 149). An introductory section considers the problems of survival inherent in living systems, matter-energy interactions relating to living systems, life and the laws of thermodynamics, and homeostasis. The first unit, Matter-Energy Relationships of the Electron, focuses on interactions involving circular movement, translational movement, and movements between electric and magnetic fields. The second unit, Mechanisms for Matter-Energy Interactions in Living Organisms, considers those mechanisms associated with the capture, storage and utilization of energy and matter, transport, regulation and exchange of matter, and other functions in living organisms. The materials for each of the sub-units include: a list of required and recommended readings from various other books; questions for consideration in introducing a lesson; a brief background reading; a basic outline of the lectures with space provided within the outline for notes; laboratory activities and investigations; laboratory problem reports and other kinds of assignments (discussion questions, fill-ins, problems); and summary statements and review questions. Numerous diagrams and illustrations are included. (PR)
