Games in class
Playing computer games is getting serious. Washington teacher Tammie Schrader is so enthusiastic about computer games in education that she thinks they can be used to teach programming skills which will help students in college- starting in middle school.
Canadian teacher Justin Holladay wrote a few simple games to help his students practise math skills, and when they caught on, he started his own company to create more of them.
And the University of Washington’s Zoran Popovic got more than 4,000 Washington students to master their lessons this spring by playing a computer game for just a few hours.
The growing availability(可获得性) of inexpensive tablet computers and a new generation of young teachers who grew up playing on computers have spurred (激发)interest in games for serious purpose.
“Six or seven years ago, selling games to schools was forbidden,” said David Martz of Muzzy Software, a Boston, US Company that produces games for publishers such as McGraw-Hill. Now he said schools are interested in the promise of games-perhaps because gaming is so much more popular.
Software and education companies have tried for many years to combine youngsters’ passion for computer games with educational progress, without much success.
Popovic thinks the first efforts to combine games with education fell flat because they were created by commercial companies. These companies were more interested in selling products than seeing students master a skill.
Teachers say there are some pretty good games in the marketplace now.
Holladay, the math teacher from Alberta, Canada, began moving paper-based math games to the iPad, building games that allowed students to compete with each other and giving them instant feedback(反馈) on their progress.
The games reinforced (强化) the lessons he was teaching, and his students had fun playing, he said. “They were a lot more engaged(参与)”.
21. What factors have helped promote computer games in schools according to the article?
a. The affordability of tablet computers.
b. The preferences of young teachers
c. The advertisements of commercial companies
d. Parents’ support
e. Better games being produced
A. a, c, d B. a, b, e C. b, c, d D. b. d. e
22. What is Holladay’s attitude to the idea of using computer games in class?
A. It is not as helpful as people thought.
B. He allows students to learn in a fun way.
C. It reduces the interaction between teachers and students.
D. It sounds good but is inconvenient to get feedback from students.
23. What does “fell flat” in Paragraph7 mean?
A. Ended up in failure. B. Lost plenty of money.
C. Was a huge success. D. Gained wide popularity.
British children generally learn how to ride a bike at a young age. I am an exception to that rule. It’s not my dad’s fault—he tried to teach me. I remember cycling around the neighbourhood. To be honest, though, I never saw the appeal. One of my earliest memories is falling from my bike and into some spiny(多刺的) plants. I definitely didn’t want to repeat that.
So I stopped learning. My dad wasn’t going to waste his time teaching someone who didn’t want to be taught. Time passed and I accepted that I couldn’t ride a bike. It never affected my life in high school because I lived close enough to walk.
I never felt like I was missing out until I couldn’t go on a bike ride with friends in Byron Bay because I was only confident that I could go on a flat surface in a generally straight line. So when the opportunity came up to bike the wall of Xi’an, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it and make up for missed time. So, with a friend who is very patient, I got on the bike. Instantly nothing came flooding back to me, I had absolutely no idea how to start! “Push off with one foot hard” was my instruction. It sounded simple enough but it just would not happen. Until something clicked and suddenly I was off, going in a straight line on a flat surface and managing to avoid the Chinese tourists who obviously found exaltation on my face.
At 22 years old, I finally learnt how to ride a bike, and nothing can hold me back.

Indian scientists have designed a new device and they hope it will solve one of the biggest problems with the use of solar energy. They call the device a solar tree. Solar trees have metal ‘branches’ which are just from a tall pole at different levels. Each branch holds a solar panel. These panels(面板) have large metal boards that collect energy from the sun and turn it into electricity.
The shape of the solar trees makes it possible to fit more solar panels in a space than traditional systems do. This means less land would be needed to produce solar energy. It takes about four square meters of space to produce energy which may otherwise need 400 square meters of space. So almost 100 times the space is saved, which is very valuable.
Buying land to develop roads, factories and other infrastructure(基础设施) has been a troublesome issue in India. Disagreements often lead to protests(抗议) by those forced to move.
Scientists believe the energy a solar tree collects will be enough to power five homes. The space-saving tree will make it easier to provide solar energy for homes in cities, they say. The trees will also take less space from farmers in rural areas. Solar trees will collect more energy than normal panels on the tops of buildings.
India is the world’s third largest producer of greenhouse gases. The country promised to reduce its rate of greenhouse gas production at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris last year. India said, by 2030, it would reduce its rate of greenhouse gas production by one third over its levels in 2005.
The country’s promise depends heavily on increasing solar energy. India has set a difficult goal of getting 40 percent of its total energy from renewable sources by 2030.
28. What is unique about the new solar device?
A．Its color. B．The way it works.
C．Its shape. D．The place where it is fixed.
29. What’s the major advantage of the solar device?
A. Its price is lower.
B. It can work in rainy weather.
C. It sends electricity directly to farmers.
D．It takes up less land and produce more electricity.
30. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “troublesome” in Paragraph 3 ?
A. new B. major C. special D. difficult
31. Why is the greenhouse gas production mentioned in the text?
A. The warming climate gets serious.
B. The solar device can help reduce it.
C. India has a difficult task to complete.
D. India will mainly use the new energy.
Rome, Paris and New York are the world’s top fashion cities, all of which have produced some of the top trends, from high-low skirts to the hottest new shoes. But have you ever wondered about the negative ideas that they’ve produced?
In April 2017, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in Britain banned an ad from Gucci that featured models dancing around and having fun because they were all extremely thin. Banning ads due to unhealthy weight isn’t new. The ASA banned an ad in 2016 for the same reason. In France, it has been a rule that models are to provide a doctor’s note proving that they are at healthy weight.
So what is healthy weight for models? Twenty years ago, the average fashion model weighed 8% less than average weight. Today, it weighs 23% less. When is it okay for anyone including models to weigh less than average?
The images of models promote the idea that being at unhealthy weight will help one gain the richness and the benefits that the models do. This provides a standard of beauty and richness; therefore, people who want to achieve those things may attempt to obtain them through unhealthy ways. People may think that they are overweight, due to the images of model’s thin figures. They see something wrong with their bodies, whether they are overweight or not. This is a key factor to a lowered body image, low self esteem(自尊) depression and possibly even eating disorders.
I’m not blaming the fashion industry by any means. It’s not their fault that many people look up to the models and expect to live a life like theirs. I’m glad that the ASA is raising its voices when discussing the growing issue of body images in the fashion industry. By banning the photos and videos, speaking out against them and requesting them to provide doctors’ notes, it’s pushing for the idea that the traditional fashion industry’s body image demands should be questioned and changed.
32. Why was one of Gucci’s ads banned?
A. Its models had unhealthy weight.
B. None of its models had a doctor’s note.
C. Its models didn’t act according to the rules.
D. Its models were dancing in an unhealthy way.
33. The figures mentioned in Paragraph 3 show that _______.
A. people don’t know when models weigh less
B. many women are on a diet to become models
C. healthy weight for models hasn’t been decided
D. models are becoming thinner as time goes by
34. The possible purpose of the NSA’s measures is to _______.
A. stress the importance of healthy weight
B. voice people’s opinions of models’ body images
C. introduce new standards of models’ body images
D. challenge traditional standards in the fashion industry
35. What is the author’s tone of writing this text?
A. Objective. B. Humorous. C. Negative. D. Critical.
Are you afraid of math? If yes, you aren’t alone. A dislike of math can begin as early as first grade, and be with you for life. 36 Actually, more and more people get uninterested in math at school.
If you suffer from math anxiety, it isn’t because you “just have no ability to study math well”; it is because, at some point, someone or something destroyed your confidence. 37 However, if you work hard to gain confidence again, you’ll have the ability to understand as much math as you need to.
38 For this, you should learn differently. For example, check out books from the library or study on the Internet to master the fundamental(基本的) principles. Do exercises you can do without a struggle to build up your confidence. It is also very important to actually understand what the formula (公式) is about, and why you are using that formula instead of another one.
Though you may feel it difficult to study math well, don’t give up so easily. You can begin by preparing for the class ahead of time. 39 Take excellent notes and read them after class. Do all the required homework and exercises at the recommended time. 40 Also you can turn to classmates who study math very well.
In short, the ability to be good at math isn’t born with, and you have to try hard, start early, and give yourself permission to fail.
A. Ask questions during class.
B. Math is useful in our daily life.
C. It is quite common at all age levels.
D. If you still need help, ask for help from teachers.
E. Fortunately, the fear of math can be overcome.
F. In a word, whatever learning method speaks to you, use it.
G. If you think you are bad at math, you’ll probably be bad at math.

their elders in person, giving them specially-making gifts. And adults usually give away a red
envelope containing some money to children, that is believed to bring good lucky.
During the NMET this year in Hangzhou, some good-looking women security guards were specially chosen to work for the very important exam. About this, people voice different opinions.
On one hand, some speak highly of it for the following reasons. Firstly, it’s considerate and effective to reduce nervousness. Naturally examinees feel stressed, but they get relaxed with female beauty and gentleness in sight. Moreover, the cheerful and energetic appearance sets a good example to them, reminding them about the expectations from family and society.
On the other hand, others don’t agree. In their view, it is a burden. It’s hard to find so many beautiful guards. Besides, it may miss-lead teenagers to value appearance more than ability.
Personally I think it’s a good idea to take such a new move. Encouraged, examinees can perform better and do their part well in society in the future.

M: Excuse me. I wonder if you could help me. I’m looking for the bus station. I want to go to the British Museum.
W: Ok. The museum is near here. Go straight and you will see a bookshop on your left. The museum is next to the shop.
W: Excuse me, Sir. I think this is my seat.
M: Really? I am in the third row No 5. Oh, sorry, my seat is in the row behind this one.
W: It was raining for the whole day yesterday. I had nothing to do but watch TV. What did you do?
M: I had planned to climb a mountain, but I had to sleep at home.
M: What would you like to drink, coffee, tea or milk?
W: I usually prefer coffee to milk. But I'd rather have orange juice this time.
M: I know you are fond of travelling. Where have you been recently?
W: I have been to Paris and Venice. I want to visit Shanghai next month.
M: You’re moving to New York. Is that true?
W: Yes. I've got an offer in New York. The job is exactly what I want to do.
M: Really? I thought you were going there to get married or look after your mother. What kind of job is it?
W: I'm going to be a financial advisor in a company, similar to the position in a bank.
M: That's great! Don't forget to drop me a line when you settle down.
W: Sure, I will.
W: What are you reading Tony?
M: I’m reading an article about the Great Wall. It says the Great Wall has been facing a serious threat recently.
M: Yes. It says some parts of it have fallen down because of severe wind and sandstorms.
W: I once heard that some parts of the Great Wall have been destroyed by people. Is that true?
M: Yes, I'm afraid so. Some people even stole the stones to sell.
W: I think people who harm the Great Wall should be punished.
M: I agree. After all, the Great Wall is a treasure not only for China but also for the world.
W: You’re right. We are all responsible to protect the Great Wall. It is one of the greatest cultural sites in the world.
W: Everyone seems to be on a diet. Have you noticed that?
M: At least everyone is talking about it. A neighbor of mine is on a banana diet. She eats one banana for breakfast, one for lunch, and two for dinner.
W: That would be bad for her teeth and her health. Has she lost any weight?
M: She doesn’t look any thinner. My sister eats eggs to lose weight, only eggs for breakfast, for lunch, and for dinner.

M: I’ve read that too. Then what about a fish diet? One of my cousins eats nothing but fish, even for breakfast.

W: You don't seem to be in a good mood. What's wrong?
M: I’m afraid I have to move. The owner wants to increase the rent.

M: 500 dollars a month. But if I continue to live, I'll have to pay 100 dollars more per month. I cannot afford it.
W: Why not share an apartment with a friend?
M: I don't like living with others. I'm not good at dealing with people. I once lived with a friend but we didn’t even talk to each other in the end .
W: What happened?
M: He had some bad habits. I asked him to change, but he wouldn’t listen to me. I insisted, so in the end he started hating me.
W: What were the habits?
M: He liked smoking indoors. He also liked inviting his friends over for drinks.
