Exercise Physiology: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

Exercise Physiology: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

This case-based learning module was designed to help underscore the connection between exercise (increased cell metabolism) and respiratory change. It could be modified to include cardiovascular dynamics as well. Issues that students are likely to examine during this case include: respiratory system anatomy; physiological control of respiration; cellular respiration; cardiovascular gas transport. Learning goals include: a review respiratory anatomy and physiology; consideration of cellular respiration; connection between increased cellular activity and effects on organism (specifically on respiration); the use of a model to investigate the influence of blood gases on respiration rate.
