Here are some practice questions with answers. Many are from previous exams, and each was worth between 3 and 7 points, out of 100 total possible points. The multiple choice questions are worth only 3 points, while the longer questions are worth 7. So this would represent roughly 2/3 of an exam. You can expect 2 or 3 more questions like the longer question at the end. I will try to split points on the exam to correspond to the time spent in class + recitation + homework. So; what is evolution = 0.5 hours + 90 minute video + recitation + chapter 2 homework / HIV = 2 hours + recitation paper / Natural and artificial selection = 2 hours / tree thinking + homology + parsimony = 2 hours + homework + recitation / molecular phylogenetics = 2 hours + recitation. I don’t have space on the exam to keep it at one hour and cover everything, so you will inevitably study for something that is not on the exam, but I will keep the topics on the exam to a rough first approximation, to correspond to how much time was spent in the course on each topic. One definition of evolution is simply “change over time”. This is a very general definition that is not specific to biological, organic evolution. In response, increasingly specific definitions have been proposed. One example includes, “change in allele frequencies over time”.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
