Unit Description

The unit covers the way the human body systems work together from the molecular level to the physiological body systems level to regulate metabolism, blood pressure and pH, body temperature, and body movement. The response of the body to changing environments and exercise will also be investigated.

Important Information

Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.

Further information

Materials Textbook information will be displayed approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the teaching period. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Disclaimer Unit information may be subject to change prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Assessment Assessment information will be published prior to commencement of the teaching period.
Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. demonstrate an understanding and describe the role of different physiological systems;
  2. discuss how these systems work together to maintain homeostasis from the molecular to the physiological level;
  3. identify and describe how the different systems respond to changing environmental conditions such as temperature and altitude; and
  4. conduct standard experimental procedures associated with the functioning of the endocrine, cardiovasular, respiratory, blood and immune systems of the human body and apply this information to solving physiological problems.
