    Evolution is the concept published by Charles Darwin that organisms change over time. Evolution transpires by natural selection, which is the process where an organism with beneficial traits, or fitness, produces more offspring than organisms with non-beneficial traits. Over time, this creates organisms that are more adapted to survive for whatever place they are living in, because nature passes on the variations of organisms that are most useful, and with the greatest chance of surviving. In order

    asked about the definition of evolution, they might say some jumble thoughts about Darwin’s theories and monkeys evolving into humans. That may be all they can say about it, but they know there’s more to evolution than that. This is probably all they can say with any authority about what they know. In secondary school, teachers will often awkwardly past over the subject without going into much depth; this maybe because of past controversies about the teaching of evolution in secondary school.
