Science Process Skills

A new approach to coursebased research using a hermit crabhydrozoan symbiosis
Learning ObjectivesStudents will be able to: define different types of symbiotic interactions, with specific examples.
 summarize and critically evaluate contemporary primary literature relevant to ecological symbioses, in particular that between hermit crabs and Hydractinia spp.
 articulate a question, based on observations of a natural phenomenon (in this example, the hermit crabHydractinia interaction).
 articulate a testable hypothesis, based on their own observations and read of the literature.
 design appropriate experimental or observational studies to address their hypotheses.
 collect and interpret data in light of their hypotheses.
 problemsolve and troubleshoot issues that arise during their experiment.
 communicate scientific results, both orally and in written form.

Learning ObjectivesStudents will be able to: Construct written predictions about 1 factor experiments.
 Interpret simple (2 variables) figures.
 Construct simple (2 variables) figures from data.
 Design simple 1 factor experiments with appropriate controls.
 Demonstrate proper use of standard laboratory items, including a twostop pipette, stereomicroscope, and laboratory notebook.
 Calculate means and standard deviations.
 Given some scaffolding (instructions), select the correct statistical test for a data set, be able to run a ttest, ANOVA, chisquared test, and linear regression in Microsoft Excel, and be able to correctly interpret their results.
 Construct and present a scientific poster.

A first lesson in mathematical modeling for biologists: Rocs
Learning Objectives Systematically develop a functioning, discrete, singlespecies model of an exponentiallygrowing or declining population.
 Use the model to recommend appropriate action for population management.
 Communicate model output and recommendations to nonexpert audiences.
 Generate a collaborative work product that most individuals could not generate on their own, given time and resource constraints.

Bad Cell Reception? Using a cell part activity to help students appreciate cell biology, with an improved data plan and...
Learning Objectives Identify cell parts and explain their function
 Explain how defects in a cell part can result in human disease
 Generate thoughtprovoking questions that expand upon existing knowledge
 Create a hypothesis and plan an experiment to answer a cell part question
 Find and reference relevant cell biology journal articles
