Abstract

In an informal survey, only five percent of 306 college freshmen students in an introductory biology course provided a correct scientific definition for the theory of evolution. The other respondents provided answers that ranged from -organisms improving themselves- 42 percent to -monkeys becoming humans- seven percent. Some of the potential reasons for the lack of understanding of the concept of evolution are explored.
