This power point covers why it is important for the body to maintain homeostasis. A chart is included which shows what happens when there are too much or too little components such as body fat, electrolytes, or vitamins. There are some real pictures and diagrams. Both positive and negative feedback mechanisms are covered. Topics such as body temperature regulation, sugar levels, osmoregulation and blood calcium labor & delivery and blood clotting are included.

Texas Biology TEKS
(10) Science concepts. The student knows that biological systems are composed of multiple levels. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of regulation, nutrient absorption, reproduction, and defense from injury or illness in animals;
(B) describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of transport, reproduction, and response in plants; and
(C) analyze the levels of organization in biological systems and relate the levels to each other and to the whole system.
(11) Science concepts. The student knows that biological systems work to achieve and maintain balance. The student is expected to:
(A) describe the role of internal feedback mechanisms in the maintenance of homeostasis;

HS-LS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. [Clarification Statement: Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.]
