This lesson centers on three ideas—randomness, patterns, and purpose—as they relate to natural phenomenon in general and biological evolution in particular. As these are relatively complex ideas, the lesson uses observable patterns in nature as a way to help students understand the process and answer the question, Is evolution random? This sample chapter also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Introduction, Ten Lessons Using EVO, and the Index.

The DVD EVO: Ten Questions Everyone Should Ask About Evolution is also available for purchase.
