1Maintaining The Balance HomeostasisMaintaining The Balance
2Describe how living organisms use ATP. Monday, December 16th 2013Bell Ringer:Objective:Describe how living organisms use ATP.SWBAT: Compare and Contrast positive feedback and negative feedback in a Venn Diagram.
3Review: Be Prepared To Share Speak with your neighbors for 1 minute about homeostasis.Write down the definition of homeostasis in your own words.Why is homeostasis important?Be Prepared To Share
4How does the body work to maintain Homeostasis? Specialized cells in our bodies work to maintain ourTemperaturepHO2 and CO2Level of energy molecules such as glucose
5How do our bodies regulate homeostasis? Feedback mechanismsPositive FeedbackNegative Feedback
6Set Point- Degree of Normalcy that must be maintained Note how the new radar speed signs provide feedback on how much your speed deviates from the set point. The natural thing for the driver to do is to get as close to the set point as possible. When the speed of the car goes above the set point the drive slows down, but when the speed goes too far below the set point the driver speeds back up.
7Negative FeedbackFeedback mechanism that returns a system to a set point once it deviates (goes away from) past the set point.ex. Thermostat
8How does a thermostat work? Take 1 min and talk to the people at your table about this answer.
9Negative Feedback (Example) You set the temperature (let’s say 72 degrees)It get’s too hot in the room.The Air conditioner turns on.The temperature lowers to 72.The air conditioner turns back off.
10Think, Pair, ShareThink quietly for one minute about an example of a negative feedback mechanisms we have in our body, in our homes, or in nature.Speak with your partner about another way you think our body uses negative feedback to maintain homeostasis.Be prepared to share!Hint: Think about how we maintain our body temperature, our energy, and our breathing.
11Check For Understanding What happens when the body cannot regulate the setpoint of blood glucose???Answer: Diabetes
12DIABETESDiabetes is a perfect example of what can happen when there is a malfunction in negative feedback systems within the body. Considering that we’ve been discussing glucose over the past few weeks, this would be another way to connect this material to prior knowledge.
16Think, Pair, ShareThink quietly for one minute about positive feedback mechanisms we have in our body.Speak with your partner about one way you think our body uses positive feedback to maintain homeostasis.Be prepared to share!Hint: Think about how your body processes energy or food.
17Compare and Contrast negative and positive feedback in a Venn Diagram. With Your Table:Compare and Contrast negative and positive feedback in a Venn Diagram.
18Summary Analysis Questions Work on independentlyGet a stamp for Credit!**Reminder – Silent and focused (no questions!)When your body temperature goes up, what happens to your amount of sweat?When you sweat, what happens to your body temperature?When your body temperature goes back down, what happens to your amount of sweat?What type of feedback mechanism was used?
