1Welcome to Mr. Cogbill’s Life Science Class What is Life ScienceWhat is everyday Life ScienceExamples of Current Research at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Life ScienceHow Students are Graded (Assessment)What are Standards (State and National)What Students are Graded on (Experiments, Labs, Projects, Field Trips)
2LIFE SCIENCE (Biology) Definition(s)The science of life and of living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution.The life processes of a group or category of living organisms.

9Promoting Interest in Science I am currently a collaborator and representative from Stevenson Middle School for the following grant proposal. Howard Hughes Medical Institute Initiative for Biomedical Research Institutions Queens Medical Center Ulu Kukui Project HHMI Grant Proposal (.pdf)
15PurposeTo figure out what this gene does in flies so that we can then apply it to humans.
16How do we do this?Determine when and where the gene products are found in the fly.Determine if this fly gene can function like the human gene “in vitro”.Mutate (mess up) the gene in flies and see what happens.
17HAWAII SCIENCE STANDARDS This is what we are to teach in class according to the Hawaii Department of Education. HCPS III
18U.S. NATIONAL SCIENCE STANDARDS This is what students should be learning according to the national standards set forth by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
19This is how lab/class work is graded. RUBRICS ASSESSMENTThis is how lab/class work is graded. RUBRICS
