Activity 1.13 Blood pressure summary
Purpose
● To draw together all the blood pressure ideas.
● To introduce the use of concept maps.
Procedure
The concept map is one method of producing a summary of what you think you
know about a particular subject area, in this case blood pressure. The construction
of the map allows you to think through the ideas covered and clarify your
understanding. A map will often highlight errors or omissions. It can provide a
useful tool in learning.
If you have never constructed a concept map you may need to read the
Exam/coursework support before getting started.
Starting with the idea of blood pressure, construct your own concept map.
You might include what blood pressure is and what it is the result of, then expand
out from these ideas.
