This 30-slide Powerpoint presentation covers 'Option D.3 - Functions of the Liver' in the 2016 IB Biology curriculum. Each slide includes the specific learning objective as well as key vocabulary that students should note.
The presentation itself contains minimal information as it is intended to be used with teacher guidance. There are sometimes 'Video' slides throughout which link to relevant and informative YouTube content. The slides are formatted to be visually pleasing and to also print well for handouts or revision. Please see the preview file (first 8 slides) for an idea of the aesthetic and level of detail in the presentation. The relevant 'Essential Knowledge' can be found below.
I have had success using these presentations to review topics after students have been exposed to the material at home. I typically have the class read relevant material (book, site, etc.) and then watch the videos the day before introducing a topic. During the class period, I use the slides to structure the discussion around the IB Bio Understandings. The remaining class time is spent reinforcing the knowledge or working on activities, written test practice, or nature of science.
**These presentations are based on the IB Biology Course Guide and do not follow any textbook
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
- U1: The liver removes toxins from the blood and detoxies them.
- U2: Components of red blood cells are recycled by the liver.
- U3: The breakdown of erythrocytes starts with phagocytosis of red blood cells by Kupffer cells.
- U4: Iron is carried to the bone marrow to produce hemoglobin in new red blood cells.
- U5: Surplus cholesterol is converted to bile salts.
- U6: Endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus in hepatocytes produce plasma proteins.
- U7: The liver intercepts blood from the gut to regulate nutrient levels.
- U8: Some nutrients in excess can be stored in the liver.
Applications & Skills:
- A1: Causes and consequences of jaundice.
- A2: Some nutrients in excess can be stored in the liver.
