Description

We wanted to develop educational materials appropriate for the high school student which would present physiological concepts in an innovative way. The impetus was in response to the lack of physiology educational materials appropriate for the high school level. To this end, we developed an exercise that presents the physiological basis for respiratory mechanics. The materials were designed to engage students in interactive learning and to stimulate interest for future science study. The emphasis of the exercise was the construction of a model that could be built by high school students to demonstrate respiratory mechanics. The use of models to present complex materials has been shown to be an effective medium for science learning. Our exercise contains directions for an inexpensive, easy-to-build model, as well as many supplemental teaching tools. Questions are interspersed throughout the text and at the end of the laboratory experience to facilitate the learning process. Answers are provided to the questions. Students and teachers alike are challenged to build, manipulate, and discuss their experience during the investigation of respiratory mechanics.
