Investigation - the effect of exercise on body temperature
  • S:\Science\9 Science\9 Physiology 2013 - go to the folder and copy the spreadsheet - complete the data entry for your results.
  • You will need to formulate an Hypothesis - what do you think will happen regarding changes to skin temperature and core temperature??
  • Copy purpose, materials, procedure, results - include your spread sheet and graphs, Write out the discussion questions and answer them in full sentences. Ensure that in your conclusion you address your hypothesis.

Respond in full sentences or you will have to re-write the entire prac.
  • Q1, Q2 and Q3 refer specifically to the data (quote the numbers and what happened)
  • Q4 Describe all observations, regarding sweating, face colour, HR and BP
  • Explain how the Q4 responses are related to Homeostasis (temp, blood sugar levels, fluid levels, salt concentration)
  • And we need to sort out who actually did their own prac write-up. If I don't get a satisfactory result then there will be calls home and detentions.
