Unit: Animal Physiology


Ms. Cohen's Anatomy Class Website for all the systems information for your background



Big Idea:

Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.


Enduring Understanding:

2.C: Organisms use feedback mechanisms to regulate growth and reproduction, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.

2.D: Growth and dynamic homeostasis of a biological system are influenced by change in the system's environment.

2.E: Many biological processes involved in growth, reproduction, and dynamic homeostasis include temporal regulation and coordination.  

3.E: Transmission of information results in changes within and between biological systems.
