THE MACDUFFIE SCHOOL  

EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION SINCE 1890

在美国高中的教学大纲中,阅读和写作占有举足轻重的地位。专业的调研报告表明,11年级的男生平均一年要阅读二十五万英文单词,而女生的阅读量更达到了三十三万英文单词。大量的课内外阅读不但丰富了美国中学生的单词量,更丰富了他们看问题的视角。这为大学阶段的独立研究性学习做好了充分准备。

Reading and writing plays an important role in the American high school syllabus. Professional research shows that boys in grade 11 read an average of 250,000 English words a year, while girls read 330,000. Abundant reading in and out of classes not only enriches the vocabulary of American middle school students, but also enriches their perspective on solving problems. This is a good preparation for independent research at university level.

美国大学也经常设置阅读相关的留学文书题目,用以考察学生平时的读书兴趣以及由此反映出的人生态度。很多时候,学校往往还会更进一步让学生谈一谈自己得到的启发和对书中观点的评判。通过列出在过去一年里阅读的书目,能够很好的考察学生的求知欲和学术兴趣。而让学生在诸多读物中选择一本展开,又能借此展现他的个性以及品味。考虑到这些因素在申请中起到的至关重要的作用,申请者不应以过于随意的态度来回答这类文书题目。

American universities often set up reading related essay questions to examine students' interest in reading and their attitude towards life. In many cases, schools will go further and ask students to talk about their own inspirations and comments on the ideas in the book. Students' intellectual curiosity and academic interest can be best tested by listing the books they have read in the past year. Asking the student to choose one of the many books to unfold can show his personality and taste. Given the crucial role these factors plays in the application, applicants should not be too casual in their responses to these essay questions.

为了呼唤学生的终身阅读意识,在寒假里提升阅读能力,上海美达菲学校给大家按照数学、物理、化学、生物4个科目整理汇总了以下寒假假期可读书目清单。

In order to arouse students' lifelong reading awareness and improve their reading ability in winter vacation, Shanghai MacDuffie School has compiled the following list of reading for students in four subjects: mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology.

Recommended Math

What is Mathematics?

《什么是数学》

作者:Richard Courant

在书中,作者贯穿了哥廷根学派数学统一性的思想,对基础数学的四大基本分科:代数学、几何学、分析学与拓扑学作了精辟的概述,反映它们相互渗透的趋势。此书还用较大的篇幅阐述了与应用数学密切相关的微积分。由于作者十分强调数学的应用以及它与其他领域的联系, 因此使读者的范围大大扩展:无论是初学者还是专家;无论是学生还是教师,都能从中得到教益与启迪。

In the book, the author runs through the thought of mathematical unity of Gottingen school, and gives an excellent overview of the four basic branches of basic mathematics: algebra, geometry, analysis and topology, reflecting the tendency of their mutual infiltration. The book also elaborates the calculus, which is closely related to applied mathematics. Because the author emphasizes the application of mathematics and its connection with other fields very much, the scope of readers is greatly expanded: both beginners and experts; Both students and teachers can learn from it.

Recommended Math

The Code Book

《密码故事》

作者:Simon Singh

豆瓣评分9.0。从玛丽女王上断头台归因于密码书信的被破译开始,用很多有趣的故事描述了密码学的发展历史和过程。如:凯撒密码,古埃及密码,恩尼格玛密码机和纳粹的战败...一直到下一代革命性的量子密码学。与其说是密码学专业书,这本书倒更像是一本引人入胜的小说。

Douban score 9.0. It starts with the guillotine of Queen Mary attributed to the decryption of the cipher letter, and describes the history and process of the development of cryptography with many interesting stories. The Caesar code, the Ancient Egyptian code, the Enigma Machine and the defeat of the Nazis... All the way to the next generation of revolutionary quantum cryptography. This book is more like a page-turner than a book on cryptography.

Recommended Math

A History of Mathematics

《数学史》

作者:Carl B. Boyer

本书把数学几千年的发展浓缩为这本编年史中。从希腊人到哥德尔,数学一直辉煌灿烂,名人辈出,观念的潮涨潮落到处清晰可见。而且,尽管追踪的是欧洲数学的发展,但作者并没有忽视中国文明、印度文明和阿拉伯文明的贡献。既有学术性,又有可读性。

This book condenses thousands of years of mathematical development into this chronicle. From the Greeks to Godel, mathematics has flourished, with celebrities and the ebb and flow of ideas visible everywhere. And, although tracing the development of Mathematics in Europe, the author does not ignore the contributions of Chinese, Indian and Arab civilizations. It's both academic and readable.

[ 2.物理阅读书籍推荐 ]  

Recommended Physics Reading List

MACDUFFIE SCHOOL

上海美达菲学校寒假读书推荐书单

Recommended Physics

《上帝掷骰子吗:量子物理史话》 

作者:曹天元

这本书是关于量子论的故事。量子论是一个极为奇妙的理论:从物理角度来说,它在科学家中间引起了最为激烈的争议和关注;从现实角度来说,它给我们的社会带来了无与伦比的变化和进步;从科学史角度来说,也几乎没有哪段历史比量子论的创立得到了更为彻底的研究。然而不可思议的是,它的基本观点和假说至今没有渗透到大众的意识中去,这无疑又给它增添了一道神秘的光环。

This book is about the story of quantum theory. Quantum theory is an extremely wonderful theory: in physical terms, it has aroused the most intense controversy and attention among scientists; In practical terms, it has brought unparalleled change and progress to our society. And few histories of science have been more thoroughly studied than the creation of quantum theory. Yet its basic ideas and assumptions have mysteriously failed to penetrate the popular consciousness, which undoubtedly adds to its aura of mystery.

Recommended Physics

The New World of Mr. Tompkins

《物理世界奇遇记》

作者:George Gamow

这本书是科学奇才伽莫夫笔下的科普力作,也是享誉世界的物理科普著作之一。伽莫夫充分地发挥了他奇特的想象力,从物理学的角度出发,把他以前花了很久时间所想象的奇妙的世界,通过本书呈现到了读者的面前。在这本书中,作者构想了一个名为汤普金斯的普通职员,也就是本书的主人公,他对科学一窍不通,却通过科学讲座以及神奇般地梦游物理奇境而捕获了众多的物理学知识,尤其是关于相对论和量子理论的相关知识。作者利用一系列有趣的故事将抽象的物理概念和规律形象化,用通俗的语言阐述深刻抽象的物理学原理。这本书不仅受到了科学界的普遍重视,也吸引了无数的普通读者和科普爱好者。

This book is a popular science work under the pen of gamow, a science prodigy, and is also one of the world's most popular physics works. Gamow gave full play to his strange imagination, from the point of view of physics, he spent a long time to imagine the wonderful world, through the book presented to the reader. In this book, the author imagines an ordinary clerk named Tompkins, the main character of the book, who knows nothing about science, but captures a lot of physics knowledge, especially about relativity and quantum theory, through scientific lectures and magical sleepwalking in physics wonderland. The author uses a series of interesting stories to visualize abstract physical concepts and laws, and elaborates profound abstract physical principles in popular language. The book has not only received widespread attention from the scientific community, but also attracted countless ordinary readers and science lovers.

Recommended Chemistry Reading List

MACDUFFIE SCHOOL

上海美达菲学校寒假读书推荐书单

Recommended Chemistry

Oxygen: The molecule that made the world

《氧气:组成世界的分子》

作者:Nick Lane

这本书将读者带入一个奇妙的旅程,如同惊悚小说一样扣人心弦,它揭示了很多意想不到的事情。氧气刺激了生命和死亡的进化,这本书揭示了氧气如何支撑生物复杂性的起源、光合作用的诞生、动物的突然进化、对两性的需求等等。这本经典的书籍可能会重新定义我们思考世界的方式。

The book takes the reader on a magical journey that is as gripping as a thriller and reveals many unexpected things. Oxygen stimulated the evolution of life and death, and this book reveals how oxygen underpinned the origins of biological complexity, the birth of photosynthesis, the sudden evolution of animals, the need for sex and more. This classic book may redefine the way we think about the world.

Recommended Chemistry

Atkins' Molecules

《阿特金斯的分子》

作者:Peter Atkins

该书作者是牛津大学林肯学院研究员,物理化学教授。这本书被称为“有史以来最美丽的化学书”。作者揭示了我们日常生活中与织物、毒品、塑料、炸药、洗涤剂、香水等有关的分子。这本书从原子和分子的角度来了解我们周围的世界,揭示了许多意想不到的联系。

The author is a research fellow and professor of physical chemistry at Lincoln College, Oxford. The book has been called "the most beautiful chemistry book ever written". The authors reveal the molecules associated with fabrics, drugs, plastics, explosives, detergents, perfumes and more in our daily lives. The book looks at the world around us from an atomic and molecular point of view, revealing many unexpected connections.

Recommeded Biology

The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

《红色皇后:性与人性的演化》

作者:Matt Ridley

一本相当不错的科普书,虽然作者自称会很无聊,但其实很有趣,适合对生物感兴趣的任何人。从书名可以看出,这本书的内容就是关于进化的观点和看法,以及对人类的影响。每一章可读性都很高,而且语言非常幽默,绝对的生物课外阅读首选。

A pretty good popular science book that, while the author claims to be boring, is actually very interesting and suitable for anyone interested in biology. As the title suggests, the book is all about ideas and perspectives on evolution and its impact on humanity. Each chapter is very readable, and the language is very humorous, absolute biology reading first choice.

Recommeded Biology

The Selfish Gene

《自私的基因》

作者:Richard Dawkins

豆瓣热门生物科普图书TOP1,这是一本讲各种各样生态系统里面博弈现象的书。书中作者道金斯的关注点,不在于遗传法则、物种演化、优生优育或者群体的过去和未来;而在于我们体内的基因是怎么样使用我们这样的个体,来进行它们自己的博弈。

Douban's TOP1 biology popular science book, this is a book about the game phenomenon in various ecosystems. Dawkins is not concerned with the laws of genetics, evolution, eugenics or the past and future of communities; It's about how our genes use individuals like us to play their own game.

“身体和灵魂,总有一个要在路上。” 虽然特殊时期无法外出旅行,但是我们可以读万卷书,可以与书中的世界来一次美好的相遇。手中有书,心中有爱,每一本不同类型的书,都能让人收获,无论是思考还是思维。读书不能改变人生的长度,但可以拓展人生的高度,在书的思维里提升自我。

"Either body or soul is on the way." Although we can't travel during the epedemic period, we can read thousands of books and have a wonderful encounter with the world in books. Book in hand, love in heart, each different type of book, can make people harvest, whether thinking or thinking patterns. Reading can not change the length of life, but can expand the height of life, and improve themselves.

愿每一个上海美达菲学子都能爱读书、多读书、读好书。

Hope every student in Shanghai MacDuffie love reading, read more books and read quality books.
