A&P Module 16 : Urinary System
Lesson 1 : Kidneys
Objective(s): Identify and understand the function of the macroscopic and microscopic structures of the kidney and supporting tissues of the urinary system, including its vascular system.
Essential Question: How are the renal structures organized to promote proper kidney function?
Vocabulary: kidneys, renal sinus, renal pelvix, renal cortex, renal medulla, minor calyx, major calyx, nephron, renal corpuscle, renal tubule, glomerulus, glomerular capsule, proximal convoluted tubule, distal convoluted tubule, nephron loop, collecting duct, afferent arteriole, efferent arteriole, peritubular capillary
Assignment(s): Cornell Notes 16-1, Kidneys IP
Lesson 2 : Urine Formation
Objective(s): (1) Describe the three part process of urine formation, which is composed of glomerular filtration, tubular reabsorption, and tubular secretion; (2) Explain the factors that govern the transport of macromolecules, water, sodium, and other ions during tubular reabsorption; (3) Describe the regulatory effect of hormones that control water homeostasis.
Essential Question: What factors and physiological structures control the processes of urine formation?
Vocabulary: glomerular filtration, tubular reabsorption, tubular secretion, urine, renin, angiotensin II, atrial natriuretic peptide, urea, uric acid
Assignment(s): Cornell Notes 16-2, Urine Formation IP
Lesson 3 : Urine Elimination
Objective(s): Explain the physiology of micturition.
Essential Question: What factors and physiological structures control the processes of urine elimination?
Vocabulary: ureter, urinary bladder, urethra, trigone, detrusor muscle, micturition, micturition reflex
Assignment(s): Cornell Notes 16-3, Urine Elimination IP
