  • Observe and describe differences in tissue types to predict their role in the normal structure and functioning of an organ.
  • Explain the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems, and how an inability to maintain homeostasis can lead to disease.
  • Use appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.

GenEd Outcomes: Connections
