各科回憶 

閱讀部分
閱讀第 1 篇文章概述
第一篇小說
作者:Anita Desai
選自:The Artist‘s Life
概要:主人公小女孩Polly從小被送去學畫畫,喜歡畫紫色波點花紋,她喜歡的花紋和老師的領帶不謀而合,因此老師非常理解她,但是把畫拿回家給父母看卻得不到認同因此非常憂郁,典型的當代女性成長代溝話題。
  
閱讀第 2 篇文章概述
第二篇社科
作者:Colleen Haight
標題:The Problem with Fair Trade Coffee
概要:自由貿易咖啡,這種產業對于不發達的國家十分重要,有一個世界性的咖啡組織規定了一個基準價格,然而這個規定卻反而導致了咖啡質量每況愈下,舉了一個例子關于一個農民中了兩種咖啡,在價格之上的則不在組織內售賣,而價格之下的放在組織內基準線價格售賣,導致好的越好賺差價,差的越差應付差事。
  
閱讀第 3 篇文章概述
第三篇科學無圖
作者:Paul B Wgnall
標題:The Worst of Times:How Life on Earth Survived Eighty Million Years of Extinctions
概要:文章先強調的發現一種P化石的重要性,然后一位中國教授研究表明在三疊紀生物大滅絕,物種多樣性急劇減少,而另外兩名研究人員則發現混合的動物群體多樣性相對更高,結論表明三疊紀包含兩次大滅絕和一次物種數量恢復,而且從長時間來看多樣性的減少反而是物種多樣性穩定的表現。
 
閱讀第4篇
第一篇歷史
作者:Colleen Haight
標題:The College, the Market, and the Court; Or Woman's Relation to Education, Labor, and Law
第二篇歷史
作者:Sarah Cooper
標題:woman suffrage -cui bono
概要:兩篇文章為相反型,第一篇強調女性不只要抽象概念上的權利,真正需求是要政府給予實際的公民權利,主要的訴求就是要投票權,雖然現在有投票權,但是作者要求投票權不應基于財富水平而是教育水平。兩點原因第一個是女性需要自己有能力保護自己,第二個是兩性生來平等,并提議了三條法律,反暴力,反欺詐,反對過分激進的性別主義。
  
第二篇,女性雖然對于權利的現狀是不滿的,但是大多數女性對于投票權并沒有表現出明顯的興趣也算是一種無聲的反抗形式。女性對于投票權表示冷漠的態度正是她們對現狀不滿的證據。作者認為,女性最大的弱點在于仁慈善良,總是會去原諒一些錯誤的事情。
  
閱讀第 5 篇文章概述
第五篇科學有圖
作者:Seth S Horowitz
標題:
The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind
概要:以前科學界一直認為蝌蚪聽力差,但是實驗都是在水里進行的,水對蝌蚪產生了干擾。作者認為應該在和蝌蚪生活環境相近的自然環境里進行試驗。作者自己進行了試驗,發現其實蝌蚪的聽力非常好。此外他還發現,他的數據里有一些蝌蚪沒有聽力。這是因為在他們的前腿長出來之前有一段耳聾期。

語法部分

第一篇:悠悠球
內容:一個叫Pedro Flore的美國人在公園玩悠悠球,因為他的悠悠球樣式和普通的都不一樣,引來了很多人圍觀。看著圍觀的人群,flore發現了商機。他注冊了自己的商標,量產悠悠球,使悠悠球風靡一時。在悠悠球事業做得正好的時候,flore讓一個叫duncan的人接手了他的公司,自己則到世界各地宣傳悠悠球。雖然現在廣為人知的是duncan悠悠球,其實最早把悠悠球事業發揚光大的還是flore。
  
第二篇:ecotourism
兩個例子,第一個叫ties的在線學習程序,可以給人建議怎么保護環境;第二個阿拉斯加的生態旅游業 阿拉斯加現在雖然還有許多旅游項目,但是只允許有經驗導游帶領的小團體,而且在阿拉斯加給游客住的營地也使用了節電技術。
  
第三篇:一種叫opah的深海恒溫魚類
內容:自然界中動物分兩種: endotherm恒溫動物&exotherm變溫動物。endotherm恒溫動物主要是哺乳動物和鳥類,通過自己調節身體溫度來適應環境溫度變化;ectotherm變溫動物主要為魚類, 不能調節全身溫度,僅有部分魚類可以通過調節局部身體溫度來適應環境。但opah這種魚類是個例外,因為它們是endotherm恒溫動物,通過兩種方式調節體溫的:
1.依靠快速扇動side fin側鰭來游動身體,在這個過程中high heat高熱產生,流經incoming blood;
2.gills鰓的部位有一套進incoming/出outgoing血管緊緊靠在一起,形成counter-current heat exchange逆流熱交換系統,由煽動fin產生的warm blood在進入心臟的過程中,可以近距離加熱outgoing blood(由于這部分血管在gill里剛與深海冷水近距離接觸過,所以是冷的),這樣,outgoing blood攜帶溫熱的血液流經全身,加熱所有部位。
 
而其他有相似血管設置的魚類,如albacore tuna,只有身體的局部才有這樣的血液交換系統,如眼睛eyes、肝臟liver,游泳肌swimming muscle,所以只能達到局部恒溫regional endothermy效果。此外, tuna平時有52.8%時間生活在淺水區域,主要靠太陽光維持體溫,然而opah只有不到10%的時間生活在淺水,大部分時間都在深水捕獵,與其他生活在深水的慢悠悠的魚類不同,opah 行動非常快速,具有恒溫捕食者的各種特點。
  
第四篇:speed listening
現在可以加速播放音頻的軟件很流行,因為人們的生活節奏加快了,所以想要快速讀完某些書。但其實speed listening對于聽故事來說是非常不利的。
首先,因為故事的講述narrative有自己的pace,講故事者甚至會通過一些技巧,比如在講述過程中停頓,來渲染氣氛,讓讀者感同身受,但是如果加速聽故事,就會讓故事失去pace,失去必要的、有意義的silence。
其次,加速以后的故事需要聽故事者的大腦快速運轉,短時間內攝入大量信息,這相當于把人的大腦當作一臺電腦,為了追求盡可能快的信息下載速度,而犧牲其他的方面,更不利于聽者抓住故事的主線,分清主要情節和次要信息。
 

數學部分

 
數學部分普遍反應比較簡單的。代數部分主要考察解方程,一次函數斜率,二次函數考察二次項系數的意義(開口大小),指數函數考察識別圖表中的數字變化是linear還是exponential。幾何部分主要考察了圓的方程(根據方程求radius )。統計部分比較簡單,考察ratio,probablity,sample selection(樣本有誤差,問加上誤差值后,mean,median,range是如何變化的,本次未涉及到boxplot。
 

作文部分

 考題原文

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.
