Curriculum Expectations

From the Ontario Curriculum Grade 11 – 12 Science Document, in SBI 3U, Strand E, the related curriculum expectations are:

Overall Expectations

E1. analyse the relationships between changing societal needs, technological advances, and our understanding of internal systems of humans;

E2. investigate, through laboratory inquiry or computer simulation, the functional responses of the respiratory and circulatory systems of animals, and the relationships between their respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems;

E3. demonstrate an understanding of animal anatomy and physiology, and describe disorders of the respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems.

Specific Expectations

E1.1 evaluate the importance of various technologies, including Canadian contributions, to our understanding of internal body systems (e.g.,
endoscopes can be used to locate, diagnose, and surgically remove digestive system tumours; lasers can be used during surgery to destroy lung tumours; nuclear magnetic resonance [NMR] imaging can be used to diagnose injuries and cardiovascular disorders, such as aneurysms) [AI, C]

E2.2 perform a laboratory or computer-simulated dissection of a representative animal, or use a mounted anatomical model, to analyse the
relationships between the respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems [PR, AI]

E3.2 explain the anatomy of the digestive system and the importance of digestion in providing nutrients needed for energy and growth (e.g., the body’s mechanical and chemical processes digest food, which provides the proteins needed to build muscle, and the fibre, water, vitamins, and minerals needed to regulate body processes)

E3.4 describe some disorders related to the respiratory, digestive, and circulatory systems (e.g., asthma, emphysema, ulcers, colitis, cardiac arrest, arteriosclerosis)
