       1. Understand the nature of scientific inquiry as related to the human body
       2. Appreciate the hopes for, as well as the limitations of, scientific protocols
          directed toward the treatment of human disease
       3. Recognize that amid the amazing diversity of races on this planet there are

          biotechnology and bioinformatics
       6. Work cooperatively in a group setting to realize and to effect a common goal
       7. Review ideas and build upon positions presented by other students, other
          teachers, and guest lecturers to synthesize and defend conclusions of one’s
          own

Intellectually Engaged

          systems in the human body
       2. Understand the cellular basis of human life
       3. Understand and schematically delineate the major metabolic pathways that
          sustain human life
       4. Understand the mechanisms of human homeostasis and the regulatory,
          feedback systems that effect homeostasis
