NATURAL SELECTION QUIZ

The questions are based on the Berkeley University - Natural Selection Misconceptions Diagnostic:

Getting Started:

When starting out, students are NOT expected to be able to answer many of the QUIZ questions correctly - if any at all.

As the course progresses and knowledge increases, students will have additional opportunities to test their new understanding about each of the questions.

Parents and teachers may point students to related information; do not tell them the answers.

Please read the next few lines before you try the QUIZ:

  • For each question, there is one or more on-line videos that you should watch that will help you understand the question better and will help you select the correct answers.
  • Many of the questions include 'interactive' and/or 'simulator' software.
  • After you have worked through the questions, videos and simulators, attempt the QUIZ again (you may attempt the QUIZ as many times as you like).
  • If you do get any answers wrong, then check out the videos and interactives and ask your friends and teachers for help.
  • Do the videos or ideas that they raise give you any ideas about experiments that you would like to try yourself?
  • If you find any interesting videos or links, make a note of them so that you can share them in class,
  • Make a note in the DISCUSSION sections for questions that you would like to discuss or that you would like answered in class.

Before you start, take some time out, to consider the video(s) about evolution:

Video 1. What is Natural selection?


Video 2. Natural selection - Stated Clearly?


Video 3. What is the evidence for evolution?
