In February of 1998, a Somerset (UK) man was trapped under a fallen van he had been repairing. As he cried for help and darkness fell it seemed he would be left there all night; his leg had been caught beneath the wheels. The area was rather isolated and nobody heard his cries-except a parrot perched on a caravan in a nearby camp site. The bird mimicked the man's cries, which is apparently normal behavior for this type of animal, and alerted two men working in the area. These reversed the van off the injured man, who, in the end, only had slight injuries. Animals, Our Friends

Text B TextB_P1 ? CH Horse Sense — Wilhelm von Osten TriesWilhelm von Osten to Teach Horse to Count Ruth Dorfman 1 Can a horse add, subtract, multiply, and divide? Of course not! However, in 1900 Wilhelm von Osten disagreed with you. Von Osten was a German schoolteacher. He tried to prove that animals are as intelligent as humans.subtractmultiplydividedisagreed with Germanschoolteacher intelligent 2 Taking a bear, a cat, and a horse as his students, von Osten began to teach them arithmetic or real numbers. Although the bear and cat soon lost interest, the horse didn’t.arithmeticlost interest 3 In fact, Clever Hans, as he was called, prove d to be an excellent student. Facing his teacher, he would stand quietly during each lesson. To make sure that Hans paid attention, von Osten had put flaps at the sides of Hans’ eyes. These “blinders” made Hans look directly at his teacher. It seemed impossible for anything to distract him.Hansflapsblindersdistract agree with sb. agree about / on sth. 不用作被动 证明老方法还是最好的方法。 The old methods proved to be the best.
Text B TextB_P2 ? CH 4 Von Osten used “skittles” — nine small bowling pins — to teach Hans the numbers one to nine. “How many pins are there?” von Osten would ask as he lined up four skittles.skittleslined up 5 “Tap-tap-tap-tap,” Hans would answer, tapping his front hoof.hoof 6 When von Osten replace d the nine pins with numbers written on a chalkboard, Hans continued to learn rapidly. He still gave the right answers to most of the problems he was given. This amazing animal even learned to tell time and give the square root of some numbers! Before long, Clever Hans was being acclaimed around the world! No other animal had ever reasoned in math before!chalkboard rapidlytell time Before longacclaimedreasoned
Text B TextB_P3 ? CH 7 There were mathematicians, however, who suspected trickery. Was von Osten giving Hans cues? It seemed impossible for a horse to do such complicated math! However, when mathematicians tested Hans, they were amazed. Testing results showed that he had the ability of a 14-year-old schoolboy!mathematicianssuspectedtrickeryschoolboy 8 Yet, some scientists were still suspicious. They formed a group to retest Hans. A psychologist in the group, Oskar Pfungst, had an idea. Why not test Hans alone? Then, certainly, no one could give the horse cues.scientistssuspicious retestpsychologistOskar Pfungst cues 9 As Pfungst had thought, Hans failed the test. It was because Hans needed someone with the correct answer to be in the room, but the person with the answer didn’t know that he was giving Hans cues! As Hans got closer to the correct answer, there were changes in this person’s body that only the horse could sense. Even a faster heartbeat could be the signal for Hans to start tapping!heartbeatsignal

Chinese Version TextB_P3_Chinese 然而，有些数学家怀疑有诈。冯 奥斯顿是不是在给汉斯提示呢？让一匹马做如此复 杂的数学计算似乎是不可能的！不过，当数学家们测试汉斯时，他们大为惊讶。测验结果 表明，汉斯的能力竟达到了一个 14 岁学生的水平！ 尽管如此，仍有科学家表示怀疑。他们组成一个小组重新对汉斯进行测试。小组中 的一名心理学家奥斯卡. 冯斯特想到一个主意。为什么不单独测试汉斯呢？这样一来，当 然不可能有人给他提示了。 不出冯斯特所料，汉斯没能通过测验。这是因为汉斯需要房间里有个知道正确答案 的人，可是那个知道答案的人并不知道自己在提示汉斯！当汉斯接近正确答案时，那人的 身体就会发生一些变化，而这些变化只有汉斯能察觉到。即使是心跳加速也可能成为让汉 斯开始敲击蹄子的信号！
