Product Description
This resource is correlated for the British Columbia Biology 12 Program of Studies. The following has been taken from these Programs of Studies and these are the specific learning outcomes that have been met in this product.

Estimated Time: 9–11 hours

By the end of this course, students will have an understanding of the structures and function of the urinary system.

Vocabulary
antidiuretic hormone (ADH), adrenal cortex, afferent and efferent arterioles, aldosterone, ammonia, Bowman’s capsule, collecting duct, glomerulus, glucose, homeostasis, hypothalamus, kidney, loop of Henle, metabolic waste, nephron, nitrogenous waste, osmotic gradient, peritubular capillary network, pH, posterior pituitary, pressure filtration, proximal and distal convoluted tubules, reabsorption of water, renal artery, renal cortex, renal medulla, renal pelvis, renal vein, selective reabsorption, tubular excretion, urea, ureter, urethra, urinary bladder, urine

Knowledge
• structures of the urinary system and their inter-relationships
• components of the nephron
• urine production
• kidneys and blood pH
• homeostasis of water and sodium levels in the blood

C13 analyse the functional interrelationships of the structures of the urinary system

identify and explain the functions of each of the following:
– kidney
– ureter
– urethra
– urinary bladder
– renal cortex
– renal medulla
– renal pelvis
– nephron

identify and explain the functions of the following components of the nephron:
– glomerulus
– Bowman’s capsule
– afferent and efferent arterioles
– peritubular capillary network
– proximal and distal convoluted tubules
– collecting duct
– loop of Henle

describe the production of urine with reference to the following terms:
– pressure filtration
– selective reabsorption
– reabsorption of water following an osmotic gradient
– tubular excretion
– metabolic waste (e.g., nitrogenous waste, urea, ammonia)

describe how the kidneys maintain blood pH

compare urea and glucose content of blood in the renal artery with that of the renal vein

identify the source glands for antidiuretic hormone (ADH) and aldosterone

describe how the hypothalamus, posterior pituitary, ADH, and the nephron achieve homeostasis of water levels in the blood

describe how the adrenal cortex, aldosterone, and the nephron achieve homeostasis of water and sodium levels in the blood
