I am disappointed in this material. Points are not clearly presented and do not link smoothly to each other. I had to add many additional slides to it for it to be usable at all. Points were introduced and then dropped without being properly presented or the explored. For example, my students were misled to believe that 'vestigial structures' proved that land mammals came from whales and humans came from apes which is what the slides imply. Other slides simply an image without any explanation of what they are meant to show (eg, slide 15). The ancestral primates are presented s snippets of information, leaving out the significance of they represent. In my opinion this resource is overpriced and should have been free at best. Neither high school students or any other level would be informed by these slides.
