各科回忆 

阅读部分
阅读第 1 篇文章概述
第一篇小说
作者:Anita Desai
选自:The Artist‘s Life
概要:主人公小女孩Polly从小被送去学画画,喜欢画紫色波点花纹,她喜欢的花纹和老师的领带不谋而合,因此老师非常理解她,但是把画拿回家给父母看却得不到认同因此非常忧郁,典型的当代女性成长代沟话题。
  
阅读第 2 篇文章概述
第二篇社科
作者:Colleen Haight
标题:The Problem with Fair Trade Coffee
概要:自由贸易咖啡,这种产业对于不发达的国家十分重要,有一个世界性的咖啡组织规定了一个基准价格,然而这个规定却反而导致了咖啡质量每况愈下,举了一个例子关于一个农民中了两种咖啡,在价格之上的则不在组织内售卖,而价格之下的放在组织内基准线价格售卖,导致好的越好赚差价,差的越差应付差事。
  
阅读第 3 篇文章概述
第三篇科学无图
作者:Paul B Wgnall
标题:The Worst of Times:How Life on Earth Survived Eighty Million Years of Extinctions
概要:文章先强调的发现一种P化石的重要性,然后一位中国教授研究表明在三叠纪生物大灭绝,物种多样性急剧减少,而另外两名研究人员则发现混合的动物群体多样性相对更高,结论表明三叠纪包含两次大灭绝和一次物种数量恢复,而且从长时间来看多样性的减少反而是物种多样性稳定的表现。
 
阅读第4篇
第一篇历史
作者:Colleen Haight
标题:The College, the Market, and the Court; Or Woman's Relation to Education, Labor, and Law
第二篇历史
作者:Sarah Cooper
标题:woman suffrage -cui bono
概要:两篇文章为相反型,第一篇强调女性不只要抽象概念上的权利,真正需求是要政府给予实际的公民权利,主要的诉求就是要投票权,虽然现在有投票权,但是作者要求投票权不应基于财富水平而是教育水平。两点原因第一个是女性需要自己有能力保护自己,第二个是两性生来平等,并提议了三条法律,反暴力,反欺诈,反对过分激进的性别主义。
  
第二篇,女性虽然对于权利的现状是不满的,但是大多数女性对于投票权并没有表现出明显的兴趣也算是一种无声的反抗形式。女性对于投票权表示冷漠的态度正是她们对现状不满的证据。作者认为,女性最大的弱点在于仁慈善良,总是会去原谅一些错误的事情。
  
阅读第 5 篇文章概述
第五篇科学有图
作者:Seth S Horowitz
标题:
The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind
概要:以前科学界一直认为蝌蚪听力差,但是实验都是在水里进行的,水对蝌蚪产生了干扰。作者认为应该在和蝌蚪生活环境相近的自然环境里进行试验。作者自己进行了试验,发现其实蝌蚪的听力非常好。此外他还发现,他的数据里有一些蝌蚪没有听力。这是因为在他们的前腿长出来之前有一段耳聋期。

语法部分

第一篇:悠悠球
内容:一个叫Pedro Flore的美国人在公园玩悠悠球,因为他的悠悠球样式和普通的都不一样,引来了很多人围观。看着围观的人群,flore发现了商机。他注册了自己的商标,量产悠悠球,使悠悠球风靡一时。在悠悠球事业做得正好的时候,flore让一个叫duncan的人接手了他的公司,自己则到世界各地宣传悠悠球。虽然现在广为人知的是duncan悠悠球,其实最早把悠悠球事业发扬光大的还是flore。
  
第二篇:ecotourism
两个例子,第一个叫ties的在线学习程序,可以给人建议怎么保护环境;第二个阿拉斯加的生态旅游业 阿拉斯加现在虽然还有许多旅游项目,但是只允许有经验导游带领的小团体,而且在阿拉斯加给游客住的营地也使用了节电技术。
  
第三篇:一种叫opah的深海恒温鱼类
内容:自然界中动物分两种: endotherm恒温动物&exotherm变温动物。endotherm恒温动物主要是哺乳动物和鸟类,通过自己调节身体温度来适应环境温度变化;ectotherm变温动物主要为鱼类, 不能调节全身温度,仅有部分鱼类可以通过调节局部身体温度来适应环境。但opah这种鱼类是个例外,因为它们是endotherm恒温动物,通过两种方式调节体温的:
1.依靠快速扇动side fin侧鳍来游动身体,在这个过程中high heat高热产生,流经incoming blood;
2.gills鳃的部位有一套进incoming/出outgoing血管紧紧靠在一起,形成counter-current heat exchange逆流热交换系统,由煽动fin产生的warm blood在进入心脏的过程中,可以近距离加热outgoing blood(由于这部分血管在gill里刚与深海冷水近距离接触过,所以是冷的),这样,outgoing blood携带温热的血液流经全身,加热所有部位。
 
而其他有相似血管设置的鱼类,如albacore tuna,只有身体的局部才有这样的血液交换系统,如眼睛eyes、肝脏liver,游泳肌swimming muscle,所以只能达到局部恒温regional endothermy效果。此外, tuna平时有52.8%时间生活在浅水区域,主要靠太阳光维持体温,然而opah只有不到10%的时间生活在浅水,大部分时间都在深水捕猎,与其他生活在深水的慢悠悠的鱼类不同,opah 行动非常快速,具有恒温捕食者的各种特点。
  
第四篇:speed listening
现在可以加速播放音频的软件很流行,因为人们的生活节奏加快了,所以想要快速读完某些书。但其实speed listening对于听故事来说是非常不利的。
首先,因为故事的讲述narrative有自己的pace,讲故事者甚至会通过一些技巧,比如在讲述过程中停顿,来渲染气氛,让读者感同身受,但是如果加速听故事,就会让故事失去pace,失去必要的、有意义的silence。
其次,加速以后的故事需要听故事者的大脑快速运转,短时间内摄入大量信息,这相当于把人的大脑当作一台电脑,为了追求尽可能快的信息下载速度,而牺牲其他的方面,更不利于听者抓住故事的主线,分清主要情节和次要信息。
 

数学部分

 
数学部分普遍反应比较简单的。代数部分主要考察解方程,一次函数斜率,二次函数考察二次项系数的意义(开口大小),指数函数考察识别图表中的数字变化是linear还是exponential。几何部分主要考察了圆的方程(根据方程求radius )。统计部分比较简单,考察ratio,probablity,sample selection(样本有误差,问加上误差值后,mean,median,range是如何变化的,本次未涉及到boxplot。
 

作文部分

 考题原文

The fall season in gender-gap news has started early and with a bang. A study released yesterday in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that male doctors earn over 25% more than female doctors. Why am I not surprised? There is a constant stream of stories showing gender disparities like this: that Obama gave only 35% of Cabinet-level posts to women, that men still write 87% of Wikipedia entries, that they are approximately 80% of local news-television and radio managers, and over 75% of philosophers.
After decades of antidiscrimination laws, diversity initiatives and feminist advocacy, such data leads to an uncomfortable question: Do women actually want equality? The answer seems transparently, blindingly, obvious. Do women want to breathe fresh air? Do they want to avoid rattlesnakes and fatal heart attacks?
 
But from another perspective, the answer is anything but clear. In fact, there’s good reason to think that women don’t want the sort of equality envisioned by government bureaucrats, academics and many feminist advocates, one imagined strictly by the numbers with the goal of a 50-50 breakdown of men and women in C-suites, law-school dean offices, editorial boards and computer-science departments; equal earnings, equal work hours, equal assets, equal time changing diapers and doing the laundry. “A truly equal world,” Sheryl Sandberg wrote in Lean In, which is still on the best-seller lists months after its spring publication, “would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes.” It’s a vision of progress that can only be calculated through the spreadsheets of labor economists, demographers and activist groups.
It would be silly to deny that equality-by-the-numbers researchers can deliver figures that could alarm even an Ann Romney. There’s the puny 4.2% of female Fortune 500 CEOs, the mere 23.7% of female state legislators, the paltry 19% of women in Congress. But while “numbers don’t lie,” they can create mirages that convince us we see something we don’t. Take, for example, the JAMA study about the pay gap between male and female doctors. The study seems to capture yet another example of discrimination against women. But because it fails to consider differences in medical specialty or type of workplace, that appearance may well be an illusion. Surgeons and cardiologists, who have long been in the ranks of the top-earning specialties, remain predominantly male. Meanwhile, as women flooded the profession, they disproportionately chose to become psychiatrists and pediatricians, specialties that have always been among the least lucrative.
(MORE: The Pay Gap Is Not as Bad as You Think)
There are reasons for this particular wage gap that are gender-blind. Surgeons need more years of training, perform riskier work (at least that’s how malpractice insurers see it) and put in more unpredictable hours. Unsurprisingly, according to surveys, women who become doctors approach their work differently than men. They spend more time with each patient; when choosing jobs, they are far more likely to cite time for family and flexible hours as “very important” and to prefer limited management responsibilities. Male doctors, on the other hand, are more likely to think about career advancement and income potential.
This hints at the problem with the equality-by-the-numbers approach: it presumes women want absolute parity in all things measurable, and that the average woman wants to work as many hours as the average man, that they want to be CEOs, heads of state, surgeons and Cabinet heads just as much as men do. But a consistent majority of women, including those working full time, say they would prefer to work part time or not at all; among men, the number is 19%. And they’re not just talking; in actual practice, 27% of working women are on the job only part time, compared with 11% of men.
(MORE: Let’s Not Forget, Many Working Moms Want to Work Less)
Now, a lot of people might say that American women are stymied from pursuing their ambitions because of our miserly maternity leave, day care and workplace-flexibility policies. But even women in the world’s most family-friendly countries show little interest in the equality-by-the-numbers ideal. In Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland, according to the OECD, women still work fewer hours and earn less money than men; they also remain a rare sight in executive offices, computer-science classrooms and, though the OECD doesn’t say it I’m willing to bet, philosophy conferences. Sweden, the gold standard of gender equality in many minds, has one of the highest percentages of women working part time anywhere in the world. Equality-by-numbers advocates should be thinking about women’s progress in terms of what women show that they want, not what the spreadsheets say they should want.
