2018年12月英语六级真题及答案大汇总
题型

  conversation 1

  Hey I just read a great book about physics。 I think you‘d like it。 It’s called the physics of the world。 It‘s written by a scientist named Sylvia Mendez。

  Oh I read that book。 It was great。 The writer is a warm and competent guide to the mysteries of physics。【1】 I think it promises enrichment for any reader from those who know little about science to the career physicist。

  And it‘s refreshing tosee【2】a strong curious clever woman adding her voice to the scientific discourse and a field that has been traditionally dominated by men。 I think she has to be commended for making an effort to include anecdotes about little known female scientists。 You know they were often victims of a generation firmly convinced that the woman’s place was in the home。

  【3】I like how the book is clearly written with each chapter brought to life by pieces of fascinating knowledge。 For example in one chapter she exposes a myth that I‘ve heard taught by university physics professors。 I’ve often heard that medieval glass windows are thicker at the bottom because glass flows like a fluid。 This, she shows, is not true。 The distortion is actually thanks to a peculiarity of the glassmakers process。

  【4】Yeah I like how she cultivates scientific engagement by providing a host of Do It Yourself experiments that bring the same foundational principles of classical physics that govern everything from the solar system to your kitchen table。 From using complex laws of physics to test whether a spinning egg is cooked to measuring atmospheric pressure by lifting a piece of cardboard。 Her hands-on examples make her book a truly interactive read。

  Yes I must say this a equation-free book is an ideal read for scientists of all stripes, anyone teaching science and even people who dislike physics。

  conversation 2

  A:Hi professor。 I was hoping I could have a moment of your time if you‘re not too busy。【5】I’m having some problems getting started on my dissertation and I was hoping you could give me some advice on how to begin。

  B:Sure。 I have quite a few students though.So can you remind me what your topic is?

  A:the general topic I chose is aesthetics, but that‘s as far as I’ve got I don‘t really know where to go from there。

  B:【6】Yeah,that‘s much too large a topic。 You really need to narrow it down in order to make it more accessible。 Otherwise you’ll be writing a book。

  A:Exactly。 That‘s what I wanted to ask you about。 I was hoping it would be possible for me to change topics。【7】I’m really more interested in nature than beauty。

  B:I‘m afraid you have to adhere to the assigned topic。【7】Still, If you’re interested in nature, then that certainly can be worked into your dissertation。 We‘ve talked about Hume before in class right。

  A:Oh yeah, he‘s the philosopher who wrote about where our ideas of beauty come from。

  B:【8】Exactly。I suggest you go to the library and get a copy of his biography。 Start from there。 But remember to stick to the parameters of the assignment。 This paper is a large part of your cumulative grade。 So make sure to follow the instructions。 If you take a look at his biography。 You can get a good idea of how his life experiences manifest themselves in his theories of beauty。 specifically the way he looked towards nature as the origin of what we find beautiful。

  A:Great。 Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, Professor。 I‘ll let you get back to class now。

  B:If there‘s anything else you need, please come see me in my office any time。

  passage 1

  During the arctic winter from October to March, the average temperature in the frozen north typically hovers around minus 20 degrees Celsius。【9】Butthis year the Arctic is experiencing much higher temperatures。 On February the 20th the temperature in Greenland climbed above freezing or zero degrees Celsius and it stayed there for over 24 hours。 Then on February the 24th the temperature on Greenland‘s northern tip reached six degrees Celsius。 Climate scientists describe the phenomenon as stunning。 Weather conditions that drive this bizarre temperature surge have visited th
