On Nov.19,a team of students from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in the US awed peers and even scientists by successfully launching a satellite.
The first satellite designed and built by high school students was sent up into space along with a record-setting.28 other small ones on a rocket were sent from a NASA center in Virginia,CNN reported.It took the students seven years to build. The students call their tiny satellite TJ3Sat,which is named after their school.It is just 10×10×12 centimeters and weighs only 0.89 kilograms,according to Orbital Sciences,a company which developed the rocket and supported the students’ project.It can be controlled with a smartphone. Like most satellites,TJ3Sat can send and receive data.The small spacecraft is equipped with a voice synthesizer (合成器),which can switch text to voice and transmit those sounds back to Earth over radio waves,said Orbital officials.In this case,anyone can give it a try via the project’s website (school website) by submitting (提交) a text.The texts that get approved will be sent to the satellite,changed to voice and then broadcast back to Earth via radio waves. “I can say ‘Go Colonials’ on our ground station and when it is on the other side of the world,in India,someone can hear ‘Go Colonials’ over the radio,”the team explains on the website. The satellite will stay in space for at least three months. School principal Evan Glazer told The Washington Post that the project started in 2006 as an activity in the spare time.Later it became a research project for a select group of seniors. “At a time when American students are busy with SATs,the launch of the satellite shows what diligent teenagers can achieve when allowed to pursue their own curiosities,”Glazer said. “It used to be that kids growing up wanted to be an astronaut,” Andrew Petro,program executive(主管) for small spacecraft technology at NASA,said in a statement.“I think we might be seeing kids saying what they want to do is build a spacecraft.The idea here is that they really can do that.” 1.The underlined word “awed” in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to . B.amazed
2.What can be inferred about TJ3Sat from the passage? A.It took a group of students about a decade to build the satellite. B.Besides TJ3Sat,28 other small satellites were built by the students. C.TJ3Sat can receive text messages that the students send into space,which can be changed to voice messages and broadcast back to Earth. D.TJ3Sat is expected to stay in orbit for the next year,sending out messages together with information about its position in space. 3.According to the passage,the launch of the satellite A.is evidence of the advance of spacecraft technology B.proves that hard-working teenagers can achieve a lot C.shows the importance of spare time activities at school D.has inspired many people to take an interest in space travel 【文章大意】本文是一篇新闻报道。托马斯·杰斐逊中学的学生们研制成功的卫星 TJ3Sat 顺利升空,这个结果不仅震惊了同龄人和科学家,也将鼓舞更多的人追求自己的太空梦想。 1.B 词义推测题。 根据第二段内容可知高中生研制的卫星成功发射升空,这件事自然是震惊 .

switch text to voice...and then broadcast back to Earth via radio waves.”可 知,TJ3Sat 卫星可以接收学生们发向太空的文字信息并把这些文字信息转换成声音信息传 回地球,故选 C 项。 3.B 细节理解题。根据倒数第二段“‘At a time when American students are busy with
SATs,the launch of the satellite shows what diligent teenagers can achieve when allowed to pursue their own curiosities,’Glazer said.”可知勤奋的学生可以获得很 大的成果,故选 B 项。 二、语法填空(共 10 小题;每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分) Joyce:What do you think of the lead teacher’s speech?

businesses that use virtual teams to build global presence,or need less common skills or knowledge from people who are unwilling to travel. Virtual teams are governed by the same basic principles as traditional teams. 2 It is the way the team members communicate.They rely on special communication
channels enabled by modern technologies,such as emails,faxes,and teleconferences,and alike.Due to more limited communication channels,the success of virtual teams is much more sensitive to the type of project the group works on,what people are selected,and how the team is managed. 3 One challenging case is the projects that rely heavily on integrated
work.That is to say,when each person’s work depends significantly on what someone else is doing at the same moment,like in a sports team,there is an ongoing heavy
exchange of information in real time,and the tasks have to go through a strict order within a short time. Not everyone can perform well in a virtual team environment. 4 Another
important quality is communication skills.The team members must be able to communicate clearly and positively. Managers of virtual teams need to pay much more attention to having clear goals,performance standards,and communication rules.People have various assumptions on what to expect from each other. 5 One of the biggest challenges of virtual teams is building trust between the team members.Trust is important for unblocking communication between members and increasing motivation of each person in the team.The issue of trust needs special attention at any stage of team existence. (2015·北京朝阳区一模) A.Yet,there is one significant difference. B.Not every type of project is suitable for a virtual team. C.A virtual team can choose whatever project they like to work on. D.The members must be self-motivated and able to work independently. E.Such teams are now widely used by companies and organizations to cut business costs. F.Members of virtual teams communicate quite well although they never meet face-to-face. G.To avoid misunderstanding,clear rules that everyone understands and agrees on are necessary. 【文章大意】本文是一篇说明文,主要介绍虚拟团队的特性和应用。 1.E 本空是对 virtual team 的概念进行进一步的解释说明。 而根据后面一句话中的“This
is particularly for businesses”可知,this 指代的就是虚拟团队的“节约交易成本”这 一特性。故选 E 项。 2.A 前文提到“虚拟团队和传统团队遵循相同的基本原则”,而根据第二段最后一句可知,
虚拟团队和传统团队有一个很大的差异。故 A 项承上启下,符合语境。
根据空格后面一句“One challenging case is the projects that rely heavily on
integrated work.”以及后文所举例子可知,并不是每一个项目都适合虚拟团队。 故选 B 项。 4.D 根据空格后面一句中的“Another important quality”可知,该处是讲虚拟团队成员
所具有的能力。D 项符合语境。 5.G 根据前文“Managers...need to pay much more attention to having
clear...communication rules.”以及“People have various assumptions”可知,有明确 的规则是十分必要的。故选 G 项。 三、短文改错(满分 10 分) Senior Three student will face the question after they pass by the college entrance examination.“Should I choose a good major and a good university?”Some students prefer to consider majors first so that they can learn what they are interested.It will also make it possibly for them to take their favourite jobs in the future.However,those who think differently believes that the environment is important to one’s development.They also believe that students graduate from leading universities are often more likely to find good jobs.In my opinion,a best choice is to choose a good major at a good university.But if we couldn’t obtain both,the first thing to consider is a good major,because no matter where we study,they can still achieve a lot in a certain field if we try our best. 1.第 1 句:student→students。此处指“高三的学生们”,应用名词复数形式。 2.第 1 句:删除 by。pass the examination 意为“通过考试”。 3.第 2 句:and→or。句意:我应该选择一个好专业还是一个好大学呢?此处表选择,应用 or。 4.第 3 句:在 interested 后加 in。be interested in 意为“对??感兴趣”。 5.第 4 句:possibly→possible。句意:这也使得他们将来做自己最喜欢的工作成为可能。 此处需用形容词作宾语补足语。 6.第 5 句:believes→believe。本句的主语是 those,故谓语动词用 believe。 7.第 6 句:graduate→graduating 或在 graduate 前加 who。此处可以使用现在分词 graduating 作后置定语,也可以使用定语从句。 8.第 7 句:第一个 a→the。best 是形容词最高级,前面使用定冠词 the 修饰。 9.第 8 句:couldn’t→can’t。本文的时态为一般现在时,故此处应用 can’t。
10.第 8 句:they→we。 此处表示“无论我们在哪里学习,如果我们竭尽全力,仍然可以在某个 领域获得成功”。本句中的逻辑主语是 we,故将 they 改为 we。
