Evolution

Below is a list of key questions you need to be able to answer in


order to succeed in your science exam for this module. If you feel
confident about the key point and could answer questions about it
comfortably, colour the box in green. If you are less certain, but feel
you know a little, colour the box in orange/yellow and if you are
totally at a loss, colour the box in red. As you continue to revise,
hopefully all the boxes will be coloured in green!

Be able to suggest reasons for the different
theories
Know what Natural Selection is and why it
occurs
Know the factors that can lead to extinction
Know the effect a gene mutation may have on
the evolution of a species
Know that fossils provide evidence of
Evolution
