B James Gross, a psychology professor at Stanford University, has a 13-year-old daughter who loves math and science. “It hasn’t occurred to her yet that’s unusual,” he says. “But I know in the next couple of years, it will.”
She’s already being pulled out of class to do advanced things with a couple of other kids, who are guys. And as someone who studies human emotion for a procession, Gross says, “I know as time goes on, she will feel increasingly lonely as a girl who’s interested in math and science, and be at risk of narrowing her choices in life before finding out how far she could have gone.’’ Gross’ concern clearly shows what has been a touchy subject in the world of science for a long time: Why are there still so few women in science, and how might that affect what we learn from research? Women now make up half the national workforce, earn more college and graduate degrees than men, and by some estimates represent the largest single economic force in the world. Yet the gender gap in science persists, to a greater degree than in other professions, particularly in high-end, math-intensive fields such as computer science and engineering. According to US Census Bureau statistics, women in fields commonly referred to as STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) made up 7 percent of that workforce in 1970, a figure that had jumped to 23 percent by 1990. But the rise essentially stopped there. Two decades later, in 2011, women made up 26 percent of the science workforce. 25. According to James Gross, in the near future his daughter may A. become a great scientist C. be pulled out of class with some guys 26. We can learn from the text that A. women are cleverer than men in college economic force C. women make up more than 50 % of the national workforce D. the number of women graduating from college is larger than that of men 27. How does the author develop the last paragraph? A. By providing examples. C. By following time order. B. By making comments. D. By explaining the process. .
B. feel lonely and have fewer choices D. learn math and science better and better . B. men represent the largest single
28. Which of the following is the best title for the text?
A. Why It Is Important to Get More Women Into Science B. James Gross, Confusion About His daughter C. Situation of Women in the Whole Country D. Future of women in the Workforce
C It was close to midnight and it was unusual to see vehicles on the road. However, several trucks pulled over and workers silently unloaded camera equipment and cardboard boxes, and then carried them inside the Morgenson family home. What took plac e over the next eight weeks was inspired by a Hollywood movie called The Joneses about a family of marketers who move into a local neighborhood to sell their products secretly to their neighbors. The idea was to test the power of word-of-mouth marketing. By filming a ‘rear’ family in unscripted ( 无 剧 本 的 ) situations, my team and I would document how the Morgensons’ circle of friends responded to brands and products the Morgensons bought into their lives. With the help of 35 video cameras and 25 microphones hidden in side the furniture, the operation done secretly showed something shocking. The most powerful hidden persuader of all isn’t in your TV or on the shelves of your supermarket. It’s a far more important influence that’s around you almost every waking moment: your very own friends and neighbors. There is nothing quite so persuasive as observing someone we respect or admire using a brand or product. Our analysis also found that the brands the Morgensons used went faster. About one third of the Morgensons’ friends began promoting these same brands to their friends. We also found that the brands their friends were most likely to buy at the Morgensons’ suggestion were the bigger and better-known ones. This proved my thoughts that traditional marketing and secret marketing work well together. The most persuasive advertising strategies are strengthened by word-of-mouth advertising. Whenever I meet with company managers, I tell them that the people who hold the real marketing power are mouse-clicking consumers and their wide circles of real-life friends. In other words, the people who hold the real power are us. 29. The author and his team went to the Morgenson family home to .
A. visit the Morgensons C. shoot a Hollywood movie research
B. sell products to them D. carry out marketing
30. According to the text, people are more likely to buy a product when A. noticing an advertisement for it on TV in a movie C. seeing their friends using the same product. supermarket. 31. In which part of a newspaper can you most probably read the text? A. Travel. Entertainment. D B. Business. C. Lifestyle. D.
B. the product appears repeatedly
D. someone is promoting it in the
Residents in the poorest counties in the U.S. face a life expectancy up to decade shorter than their counterparts in the wealthiest areas, according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health. Researchers from East Tennessee State University wanted to better understand how socioeconomic status was associated with heath outcomes. To find out they divided the country’s 3,141 counties into 50 new ‘states’ (with 2 percent of the counties in each) based on household income as opposed to geographic proximity (接近). The researchers broke down the data by county since they found state-level data may hide some ‘impact of socioeconomic differences on both the best-off and worst-off counties.’ They then examined health data from the wealthiest and poorest ‘states’ (top and bottom 2 percent) to see how residents differed on factors like smoking, clinical care and excessive drinking. Researchers found that there was nearly a 10-year gap in the life expectancy of men with an average of 79.3 years in the wealthy counties compared to 69.8 years in the poorest. For women, the difference was slightly less - 83 years in the wealthiest counties and 76 years in the poorest. The study authors caution that while they found a connection between socioeconomic status and health outcomes, they did not analyze cause and effect. But they suggest that the data shows how policy makers should not just focus on state-wide initiatives
(主动性) but more targeted efforts to help those most at risk. “With limited resources, methods of pinpointing the poorest counties can assist in the allocation of resources and programs to those communities that are in the greatest need,’’ the study authors wrote. 32. How did Researchers divide the counties? A. By social status. living places. 33. Which of the following is TRUE according to Paragraph 3? A. The women difference is less than the man in life expectancy. B. The wealthiest ‘state’ like hiding their wealth. unbelievable. D. Most poorest ‘state’ smoke and drink a lot. 34. What can we infer from the last paragraph? A. The researchers think their study is perfect. B. People still don’t know the cause of life expectancy. C. The government should learn something from the study. D. The American resources allocation is not fair at all. 35. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Ways to have a long life expectancy USA C. The health problem in the USA in poorest D. Men in richest 10 years longer B. Great income differences in the C. Most health data is B. By income. C. By health. D. By
第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Ways to Respectfully Disagree It’s easier to agree than disagree. 36 Unfortunately, many of us either shy
away completely from disagreements or lose it when things don’t go our way. These tips can help keep disagreements constructive. Use “I’ to communicate how you feel, what you think and what you want or need.
For example, telling your parents “You always remind me about my housework when
you know I have much homework” has a very different tone from “I’m feeling pressured because I have a lot of homework tonight. Can I do t hose chores tomorrow?” Listen to the other’s opinion. 38 That makes it more likely that he or she
will do the same for you. When the other person is talking, try to stop yourself from thinking about why you disagree or what you’ll say next. 39 This is the important thing you can do to keep a conversation on track.
Of course, it’s a huge challenge to stay calm when you feel angry about something, especially if their person you’re talking to gets heated. 40 If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of someone’s put-downs ( 贬
损的话 ), you know how valuable using respectful language and behavior can be. So instead of saying what you might be thinking (That’s a stupid idea!), try saying “I don’t agree, and here is why.” Respect goes beyond difficult conversations, of course. Being helpful and considerate towards family members, teachers or coaches in our everyday actions helps us establish a foundation for those times when we might disagree. A. Stay calm. B. Look into the other’s eyes.
C. Using ‘you’ statements can sound aggressive. D. Avoid putting down the other person’s ideas and beliefs. E. Then you can calmly present your case and why you disagree. F. Being a good listener shows that you respect the other person. G. But we can learn a lot from conversations where we don’t agree.

As you have seen, many Chinese choose to stick the character Fu on the door upside down during the Spring Festival. This actually expresses their best wishes for the new year. In Chinese, the character for “upside down” sounds the same as the character “to arrive” so this means that happiness is arriving. Quite interesting, isn’t it? By the way, I’d like to invite you to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival with my family after the College Entrance Exam. It’s a day in memory of the great poet Qu Yuan an d we usually eat Zongzi and enjoy dragon boat races. It’ll be a good opportunity to experience Chinese culture and tradition. Look forward to your reply. Yours, Li Hua 听力原文 Text 1 M: Where’s John? He should be here by 8:00 for the meeting. W: His wife said he left at 7:30.1 think he’ll be here at 8:15.

I’m su re I’ll learn how I did the day after tomorrow. Text 4 M: Have you noticed the price of meat? It’s gone up again. W: I know. That’s why I’m busying some fish. I thought it was just this store, but the situation is the same everywhere. Text 5 M: What’s the terrible smell? W: Oh, I forgot about the chicken! Look! It must be burning! M: Well, we can’t eat that for dinner. Text 6 W: I finished my last exam this morning, and I finished my two term papes. I finally feel I can see the light. M: Great. I’ve got two tickets for the new modern art exhibition downtown. The exhibition was in New York last summer and in Chicago after that. And next week it goes to Los Angeles. Do you want to go with me? W: Why not? Text 7 W: Hi, Kurt. It’s been a long time since I last saw you. Don’t you live in the dorm any more? M: No, I moved to the Oak Greek apartments.

I’ve got a whole list of museums and art exhibitions. In fac t, I’m hiring a car in Milan so that I can drive around a bit. W: That’s a good idea. Hiring a car makes it easier to see the city.

This is a good rule to follow when you are trying to judge the intelligence of others. Some people have minds that shine only in certain situations. A young man with an unusual gift in creative writing may find himself speechless in the presence of a pretty girl. He awkwardly searches for words and does not talk smoothly. But don’t make the mistake of thinking him stupid. With a pen and paper he can express himself very well. Other people may fool you into over valuing their into over valuing their intelligence by putting up a good appearance. A student who listens attentively and takes notes in class is likely to make a favorable impression on his teachers. But when it comes to exams, he may score near the bottom of the class. The main idea is that you can’t judge someone by their appearances. The only way to determine a person’s intelligence is to get to know him. Then you can observe how he reacts to different situations. The more situations you observe, the more accurate your judgment is likely to be. So take your time. Don’t judge the book by its cover.
