More information about Beginner Writing Project can be found at _______. facebook.com/towner newwritingsouth.com newtowner.org.uk towner.org.uk B In the mid-1950s, I was a somewhat bored early-adolescent male student who believed that doing any more than necessary was wasted effort. One day, this approach threw me into embarrassment In Mrs. Totten?s eighth-grade math class at Central Avenue School in Anderson, Indiana, we were learning to add and subtract decimals (小数). Our teacher typically assigned daily homework, which would be recited in class the following day. On most days, our grades were based on our oral answer to homework questions. Mrs. Totten usually walked up and down the rows of desks requesting answers from student after student in the order the questions had apeared on our homework sheets. She would start either at the front or the back of the classroom and work toward the other end. Since I was seated near the middle of about 35 students, it was easy to figure out which questions I might have to answer. This particular time, I had completed my usual two or three problems according to my calculations. What I failed to expect was that several students were absent, which threw off my estimate. As Mrs. Totten made her way from the beginning of the class，I desperately tried to determine which math problem I would get. I tried to work it out before she got to me, but I had brain freeze and couldn?t function. When Mrs. Totten reached my desk，she asked what answer I?d got for problem No. 14. “I…I didn?t get anything,” I answered，and my face felt warm. “Correct,” she said. It turned out that the correct answer was zero. What did I learn that day? First, always do all your homework. Second, in real life it isn?t always what you say but how you say it that matters. Third，I would never make it as a mathematician. If I could choose one school day that taught me the most, it would be that one.
6. What does the underlined part in Paragraph 1 indicate? A. It is wise to value one?s time. B. It is important to make an effort C. It is right to stick to one?s belief. D. It is enough to do the necessary. 7. Usually, Mrs. Totten asked her students to _______. A. recite their homework together B. grade their homework themselves C. answer their homework questions orally D. check the answers to their homework questions 8. The author could work out which questions to answer since the teacher always _______. A. asked questions in a regular way B. walked up and down when asking questions C. chose two or three questions for the students D. requested her students to finish their usual questions 9. The author failed to get the questions he had expected because _______. A. the class didn?t begin as usual B. several students didn?t come to school C. he didn?t try hard to make his estimate D. Mrs. Totten didn?t start from the back of the class 10，Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. An Unforgettable Teacher B. A Future Mathematician C. An Effective Approach D. A Valuable Lesson C The behaviour of a building?s users may be at least as important as its design when it comes to energy use, according to new research from the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). The UK promises to reduce its carbon emissions (排放） by 80 percent by 2050, part of which will be achieved by all new homes being zero-carbon by 2016. But this report shows that sustainable building design on its own — though extremely important- is not enough to achieve such reductions: the behaviour of the people using the building has to change too. The study suggests that the ways that people use and live in their homes have been largely ignored by existing efforts to improve energy efficiency (效率)，which instead focus on architectural and technological developments. ?Technology is going to assist but it is not going to do everything,?explains Katy Janda, a UKERC senior researcher，?consumption patterns of building users can defeat the most careful design. ?In other words，old habits die hard, even in the best-designed eco-home. Another part of the problem is information. Households and bill-payers don?t have the knowledge they need to change their energy-use habits. Without specific information， it?s hard to estimate the costs and benefits of making different choices. Feedback (反
馈） facilities, like smart meters and energy monitors，could help bridge this information gap by helping people see how changing their behaviour directly affects their energy use; some studies have shown that households can achieve up to 15 percent energy savings using smart meters. Social science research has added a further dimension (方面） ，suggesting that individuals?behaviour in the home can be personal and cannot be predicted 一 whether people throw open their windows rather than turn down the thermostat (恒温 器) , for example. Janda argues that education is the key. She calls for a focused programme to teach people about buildings and their own behaviour in them. 11. As to energy use, the new research from UKERC stresses the importance of________. A. zero-carbon homes B. the behaviour of building users C. sustainable building design D. the reduction of carbon emissions 12. The underlined word “which” in Paragraph 2 refers to”________.” A. the ways B. their homes C. developments D. existing efforts 13. What are Katy Janda?s words mainly about? A. The importance of changing building users, habits. B. The necessity of making a careful building design. C. The variety of consumption patterns of building users. D. The role of technology in improving energy efficiency. 14. The information gap in energy use _______. A. can be bridged by feedback facilities B. affects the study on energy monitors C. brings about problems for smart meters D. will be caused by building users? old habits 15. What does the dimension added by social science research suggest? A. The social science research is to be furthered. B. The education programme is under discussion. C. The behaviour of building users is unpredictable. D. The behaviour preference of building users is similar.
