BTEC Extended Diploma Level 3 Assignment Brief

Course Title: Extended Diploma Level 3 in Health and Social Care

Unit : 5

Assignment Title: Anatomy & Physiology
Scenario/Vocational Context:

This unit introduces core knowledge of cellular structure and function, and the organisation of the body as a whole, and then builds on this to develop a more detailed knowledge of the fine anatomy and physiology of the systems involved in energy metabolism.

Functional Skills Development: This assignment will give you the opportunity to develop skills in Level 2 English, Math’s and ICT. The functional skills being improved will be identified at the end of each task.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this unit a learner should:

1 Know the organisation of the human body
2 Understand the functioning of the body systems associated with energy metabolism 3 Understand how homeostatic mechanisms operate in the maintenance of an internal environment 4 Be able to interpret data obtained from monitoring routine activities with reference to the functioning of healthy body systems.

Brief

This unit introduces core knowledge of cellular structure and function, and the organisation of the body as a whole, and then builds on this to develop a more detailed knowledge of the fine anatomy and physiology of the systems involved in energy metabolism.

Task 1 (P1, P2, P3,)

P1 outline the functions of the main cell components

For this assignment you will be designing 3 posters that will outline the functions and structure of cells, tissues and body systems.

To gain a pass you must be able to:

Poster 1

P1: Outline the functions of the main cell components. The information that you will need to include will be:

Cells: cell membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm; organelles – mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum (smooth and rough), Golgi apparatus, lysosome

Label a diagram of a human cell and include your description of the 8 cell components listed above to help explain your work. Make sure you put your own labels on.

Poster 2

P2: Outline the structure of the main tissues of the body

Describe the 4 main types of tissue in the body (e.g. epithelial, connective, nervous and muscle)

Include illustrations or drawings of each type

For each type of tissue, say what its function is (what does it do)

Describe where each one is found in 2 different body organs and what its role is in helping that organ to work

Use labelled drawings or diagrams throughout to help explain your work.

Poster 3

P3: Outline the gross structure of all the main body systems.

Label a drawing of each of the body systems, your drawing must show the main organs. Write a short statement of the function of each system.

For each one, name the organs that are part of the system and what they do.

Use labelled drawings of each system to help explain your work.

Body organs: location of heart, lungs, brain, stomach, liver, pancreas, duodenum, ileum, colon, kidneys, bladder, ovaries/testes, uterus; structure and function of the skin

Systems: gross structure of cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, renal, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, lymphatic, musculo-skeletal, immune

Main functions of systems: overall function of each system, e.g. digestion of food materials, maintenance of oxygen supply, transport and supply of materials to cells, receptors of information from the environment, co-ordination, eliminating waste products, reproduction; overview of interactions of the different structures within each system

Functional Skills: During this task you will present information on complex subjects clearly and concisely using a range of writing styles for different purposes. You will use a range of sentence structures, including complex sentences, and paragraphs to organise written communication effectively

Task 2 (P4, M1, D1)

P4: Explain the physiology of two named body systems...
