考研英語時文賞讀(93):中國高考數學題難哭美國老師

  Gaokao maths question leaves US teacher stumped

  高考數學題目難倒了美國老師

  A video of a US middle school maths teacher comically trying – and failing – to complete a mathematics question from a Chinese exam paper has been widely shared on social media in China.

  近日,一段有關一位美國中學數學老師嘗試解開一道中國考試卷上的數學題但未能解開的滑稽的視頻在中國社交媒體上被廣為轉發。

  The video was shared on June 8 by a Chinese teacher working in the US. It shows her friend, a US middle school maths teacher, trying to solve a question from this year’s gaokao, China’s college entrance examination with a reputation for difficulty, even by international standards.

  6月8日,一位在美國工作的中國教師分享了這段視頻。視頻中,她的朋友(一位美國中學數學老師)正在嘗試解答今年高考中的一道題。中國高考以其高難度而聞名,即使以國際標準來衡量也是如此。

  The question was taken from section II of the natural sciences mathematics exam paper on the national level.

  這道題摘自理科數學全國卷的第二部分。

  “I heard this year’s gaokao maths questions are very difficult so I searched online and tried to solve one in a cafe. But it has been a long time, therefore I forgot how to solve it,” she told online news media platform Guancha Syndicate.

  她向在線新聞媒體平臺觀察者網表示:“我聽說今年的高考數學題目很難,所以我上網搜索了一下,想在咖啡館里解開一道。但由于很久沒做題了,所以我都忘記如何解開這道題了。”

  At that moment, the US maths teacher was sitting next to her and playing chess with his friends, “so I asked if he could help me solve a question, but that posed a big challenge to him,” she said.

  當時,這位美國數學老師正坐在她旁邊和朋友們下棋,她說道:“所以我就問他能否幫我解開一道題,但是沒想到這對他來說是一個很大的挑戰。”

  In the video, the US teacher looked confused when reading question 12 for 3 minutes, a multiple choice question about functions. He first tries the method of substitution but fails and finally chooses D by exclusion.

  在視頻中,這位美國老師對第12題(一道有關函數的多項選擇題)審題3分鐘后顯得很是困惑。他首先用代換法試了試,但沒能解開,最后通過排除法選擇了D。

  However, the answer turned out to be B, much to the amusement of social media users. Posts about the video have been viewed 140 million times on microblogging site Weibo, and the video has been picked up by other Chinese news media.

  然而,正確答案卻是B,這樂壞了社交媒體上的用戶。有關該視頻的帖子在微博上被瀏覽了1.4億次,該視頻也被其他中國新聞媒體轉載。
