2. Are we still evolving? I am going to investigate if we are still evolving. I will compare the people of today with the people of the past I would like to see how these changes will affect my future. 3. Are we getting smarter? The average human has to learn complicated new skills and abilities that involve a massive brain change. Our brains are very different, in fine detail, from the brains of ourOur brains are massively ancestors. re-modelled by theexposure to the Internet-but also, by reading,television, video games,modern electronics,contemporary music and bycontemporary "tools," etc. 4. The average IQ in 1900 would have been 50, below the level of retardation. Obviously our grandparents or great grandparents were not retarded. The average IQ of the population today is approximately 100. IQ tests had been increasing about 3 points per decade orapproximately 10 points per generation. 5. If we compare the inventions of today with the inventions they made 100-200 years ago then yes, we are getting smarter!tototo 6. Medical Advances.

Are we getting reliant on computers, and therefore, dumber? In the 1950s if you did not do well in your reading and math you did not move up to the next year group.
