The technology develops so quickly that many new things appear in human beings life. Lets guess what they are:
I am very old now. I was born in China. Many people used me for calculating( ) in the past, but now I am a bit lonely because they dont like me now. Do you know who I am? abacus Guess :
I am very small. I can be used for calculating. In China, a lot of students use me when solving mathematical( ) problems. Do you know who I am? calculator
Solve a riddle : one thing It has a big face with many keys It has two big ears which can play music You can watch TV or see a movie using it It can be seen in the office, classroom and at home. It can download information guess
We can see many brands of computers Lenovo Haier Tinghuatongfang Dell TCL Acer

The speaker was given a family connected by a network in the late 1960s. F [ Alan Turing. ] T [ a universal machine ] [ in the early 1960s ] F F
Q1: How did the computer work as an Analytical Machine? The computer followed instructions from cards with holes. Q2: In which way did computers talk to humans? Using BASIC. Q3: What does others (2.6) refer to? Other computers. 3. Questions
Q4: Why did people think the computer was simple-minded ? Because the computer was made as a calculating machine and was used to solve mathematical problems.
Q5: In how many ways do we say the computer changed? What are they? Size: Intelligence: Speed: Function: People opinion: smaller quicker cleverer calculating----dealing with …, communicating with… simple-minded----clever & useful

Changes in size 1._______________ (earlier) 2._______________ ( in the past) 3.____________________ (modern) not very big huge smaller and thinner
Changes of the machine Calculating machine Analytical machine Universal machine artificial intelligence PC (desktop/ notebook) Internet ? Time
Development in functions calculatecalculating machine --- Analytical Machine ---follow instructions universal machine--- solve mathematical problems; artificial intelligence Computer connected by a network share information with others; talk to each other; deal with information; communicate with each other
Discussion: what other functions will computers have in the future? Or what will computers be like?
Use the following expressions: I think that…… In my opinion…… I believe that…… It would be nice if…… richer and richer; stronger and stronger; easier and easier
Then what should we do if we want to develop more functions of the computer? Study hard. Learn as much knowledge as we can. Prepare to become great scientists!
