Students examine the oxygen binding affinity of hemoglobin through the oxygen dissociation curve, Hill equation and Hill plot.  Students then apply their knowledge to new scenarios in a take-home assignment and through an in-class case study on adaptations to high altitude living.  The resource includes two worksheets, a set of accompanying powerpoint lecture slides, and a take-home assignment.
