7 New Unit & Chapter Openers Highlights & FeaturesNew Unit & Chapter OpenersBC Biology 12: Inquiry into Life is divided into two parts, each unit will begin with a large photographic two-page spreadUnit A covers Cell BiologyUnit B covers Human BiologyChapter Openers will consist of a four-page opening section with the first two providing students with an outline of the material that will be covered, what they should already know, as well as an “Issue” box (similar to the Case Study seen in other Mader books) related to the imageThe next two pages contain another nice introductory piece in the form of a discussion feature called “Making Connections.” It will effectively help teachers to gauge what students may already know, and what their preconceptions or misconceptions might be.Chapter Outline and Before You Begin – Provides an overview of the upcoming chapter material and reviews previously learned concepts related to the upcoming contentMaking Connections – Encourages students to think about upcoming content while allowing teachers to gauge where students’ are in their prior knowledge, preconceptions, and/or misconceptions
8 Chapter Preparation & Diagnostics Highlights & FeaturesChapter Preparation & DiagnosticsTwo-pages of thorough chapter preparation and diagnostics to ensure student readiness, and to assist teachers in gauging level of current understanding of topic matterIncludes:Short inquiry activityMultiple-choice questionsShort answer questionsLabeling activities, and more!Each Chapter Opener also provides a thorough, two-page Chapter Preparation section and includes:A short inquiry activity to push students to question, investigate, analyze, and discuss findingsMultiple-choice questions, short-answer questions, labeling activities, and more – all related to the upcoming chapter content for a comprehensive readinessThese comprehensive diagnostic questions and activities are perfect for determining the course of instruction for each chapter’s content – students may already have a good foundational knowledge on the topic, or it may become clear the chapter material will need a more in-depth study
9 Highlights & Features New Section Reviews Learning Outcomes – Each subsection within the chapter introduces upcoming content and what students should know after readingCheck Your Progress – Each subsection within the chapter reiterates the expected learning with 2-3 assessment questions.

21 Activities – Chapter 13 Teacher Resource Simulated Pressure Filtration Activity Section 13.2 Anatomy of the Kidney and ExcretionSimulate pressure filtration. Make a large jug of “blood.” Use water, food colouring (to simulate dissolved solutes such as glucose, amino acids and ions), small and large beads (to simulate formed elements), and clear, colourless but small beads to represent the plasma proteins. The container represents the afferent arteriole. Pour the contents of this jug into another jug using a funnel. The funnel represents Bowman’s capsule. Line the funnel with a wire mesh that will not let the small, large, or colourless beads pass through. The mesh represents the pores of Bowman’s capsule that allow small molecules to pass. The container that the filtrate is entering represents the PCT. In this analogy, gravity provides the force necessary for movement of materials, but in the body, blood pressure provides this force. Students can be asked to predict what happens when blood pressure rises, or is too low.A pig or sheep kidney can be dissected showing the cortex, medulla, pelvis, and renal pyramids. Blood vessels and ureters can be shown if still attached.Each student can be given a piece of yarn or pipe cleaners (or similar), which can be bent and/or folded to model a nephron. Then, several nephrons can be interconnected, sharing common collecting ducts. The nephrons can be arranged left to right or right to left as they are in the kidney. Reinforce that Bowman’s capsule, PCT, and DCT all lie within the cortex. The loops of Henle and collecting ducts travel through the medulla, and all the collecting ducts merge and widen to form the pelvis. Th is activity reinforces structures of the nephron, regions of the kidney, and the idea that the kidney is a collection of filtration tubes.Have students (in small groups) create a concept map that summarizes the essential processes in each part of the nephron in order to reinforce learning of the vocabulary and concepts associated with nephron structure and function. Students can explain their concept map designs to other members of their group.
