2021考研英语(一)万人冲刺大背书

今天的句子:

I suspect the myth that math is especially hostile to women arises from the challenge that math poses to anyone. To do mathematics, you must have some protected time to think alone, and you are much better off if you have someone to talk with. Both alone time and quiet conversation have been in short supply for the sex that has traditionally been expected to prepare the food, clean the house, and raise the children—and for most other people as well.

思考题:

According to the text, the author believes that ______

(A) women are particularly susceptible to the challenge of math.

(B) math poses particular challenges to those who lack of alone time.

(C) women are superior to men due to lack of alone and quiet time.

(D) quiet conversation hardly contributes to the study of mathematics.

词汇突破:

myth:迷思,神话

protected time:不受干扰的时间

suspect :认为

句子解析:

第一句:

I suspect /the myth that math is especially hostile to women arises from the challenge that math poses to anyone.

参考译文:我怀疑那种认为数学特别敌视女人的迷思源于数学对任何人的挑战。

第二句:

To do mathematics, you must have some protected time to think alone, andyou are much better off if you have someone to talk with.

参考译文:要从事数学,你必须有一些不受干扰的时间独自思考,且能与人交谈,才能做得更好。

第三句:

Both alone time and quiet conversation have been in short supply for the sexthat has traditionally been expected to prepare the food, clean the house, and raise the children—and for most other people as well.

参考译文:但独处的时间和安静的对话对于女性尤其难得,传统上人们期望她们准备食物、打扫房子和抚养孩子;对于大多数其他人来说也是如此。

思考题解析:

According to the text, the author believes that _____

根据原文,作者认为_______

(A) women are particularly susceptible to the challenge of math.

(A)女性特别容易受到数学困难的影响。

这是大众的看法,作者是不认同这个观点的。

(B) math poses particular challenges to those who lack of alone time.

(B)数学对那些缺乏独处时间的人提出了特别的挑战。

正确答案。对应第二句;To do mathematics, you must have some protected time to think alone, and you are much better off if you have someone to talk with

要从事数学,你必须有一些不受干扰的时间独自思考,且能与人交谈,才能做得更好。

所以,这就是正话反说,“数学对那些缺乏独处时间的人提出了特别的挑战。”

而且后面的句子也说到了女性之所以不如男性就是因为缺乏不受打搅的时间。

(C) women are superior to men due to lack of alone and quiet time.

(C)由于缺乏独处和安静的时间,女性比男性优越。

错!

你是不是看错单词了!superior 比…强;inferior 不如…

(D) quiet conversation hardly contributes to the study of mathematics.

(D)安静的交谈对学习数学没什么帮助。

错!

你是不是没注意到hardly!这是一个否定!

当然是有帮助的!所以 不对!

文章来源背景和来源:

Change is Possible: stories of women and minorities in mathematics

变化是可能的:数学界的妇女和少数族裔故事

背景:很多人都觉得数学难,因为数学高度抽象,从事数学的人需要安静的深思、忘我的投入和相当的脑力。也正因为如此,在大众语境中,数学好就是聪明的最 高境界(这也是我国奥数辅导如火如茶,越管理越热烈的原因:谁都想孩子被认为聪明)。虽然数学的难是普世的,但长期以来却存在一种女性不能数学好的偏见。想想谁没遇见过个把数学老师,批评男生解错题时说的是:“你再这样就和女生没区别了。”(真不知道他是不是在指桑骂槐。)数学家Patricia Clark Kenschaft收集了众多女性和少数族裔数学家的故事,写成《变化是可能的:数学界的妇女和少数族裔故事》一书,通过她们的经历和成就有力地抨击了这种刻板印象。她也写道,问题仍在,但无需过于愤怒和失望,因为变化是可能的,我们一直在变得更好。
