“我在预习沪教版英语教材时,发现95页有点小问题。95页上有3张小昆虫的照片,按英文的说明分别应该是蝴蝶、蚂蚁和蜜蜂。但是图片上却是蝴蝶、蚂蚁和食蚜蝇……”


近日,沈阳市126中学7年级学生崔宸溪把自己的发现反映给了上海教育出版社。


“I noticed a tiny mistake on page 95 of the English textbook published by Shanghai Educational Publishing House when I was preparing lessons before class,” said Cui Chenxi, a 7th grader in Shenyang No. 126 Middle School. Cui had found an illustration captioned as “bee” to actually be hoverfly in the picture.
沈阳市第126中学七年级学生崔宸溪说:“我在预习沪教版英语教材时,发现95页有点小问题。”他发现一幅插图的说明是“bee(蜜蜂)”,实际上图片上却是苍蝇。


An editor of the publisher on Friday confirmed the error they made after consulting a biology teacher and said it will rectify the mistake by replacing the wrong picture in a reprinted version after it gets approval from the Ministry of Education.
10月8日,在咨询了一位生物老师后,出版社的一位编辑确认了问题的存在,他表示,在获得教育部批准后,将在重印版本中替换错误的图片,纠正错误。


The editor also thanked the 12-year-old boy for reporting the error, and praised him for being “really professional”.
这位编辑还感谢了崔宸溪为他们纠错,并称赞他“非常专业”。


When asked how he discovered the mistake Cui said, “It's simple. Bees have two pairs of wings while hoverflies have only one pair of functional wings and bees are plump with their round belly versus the hoverfly's slim figure. What's more, bees have distinct tentacles while those of hoverflies are obscure.”
当被问起是怎么发现教材有问题时,小崔回应:“其实也挺简单,蜜蜂有两对翅膀、食蚜蝇只有一对,而且蜜蜂的肚子是胖胖的,食蚜蝇很瘦的。另外,蜜蜂的触角很明显,食蚜蝇的不明显。”


记者从中国数字科技馆的一篇科普文章中得知,区分食蚜蝇和蜜蜂的三大要点正是:①触角长短;②翅膀数量;③后腿的粗细。


As a young man who took an avid interest in biology, Cui had raised 10 types of ants in his primary school days in order to observe the insects' habits and their division of labor, according to Cui's mother.
据小崔的母亲介绍,他对生物非常感兴趣,小学时,他自己在家里养过10多种蚂蚁,观察他们的习性、种群内的分工等。


The family stores more than 300 titles of books related to natural science and Cui has a bookshelf of his own. Having not attended a single one of the extracurricular training classes which parents are keen to put their kids in, the boy is happy to learn independently.
家里自然科学方面的书有300多本,他自己就有一个专门的书架;他独立学习的能力很强,从没有参加过家长们推崇的课外培训机构。


这次国庆节老师让写个作文《这就是母亲》,结果他写的是昆虫如何保护自己的卵。


网友们纷纷为小崔点赞,称“学习有兴趣才能走得更远”。

初中生指出历史教科书错误


这不是00后小朋友第一次发现教科书里的错误。


此前,#上海一初中生指出历史教科书钱币错误#话题冲上热搜。


据了解,上海初中生顾则行翻看《中国历史地图册》(第一册)第41页时,看到引用了两枚古钱币照片,文字标注为“北魏孝文帝时期的铜钱太和五铢和宣和通宝”。


在他的记忆里,宣和通宝的“宣和”不是北魏孝文帝的年号,他立即上网查了宋徽宗、北魏孝文帝的年号,同时查阅其他古钱币书籍,确认“宣和通宝”是宋徽宗时期所造。


教材责编回应,宣和通宝钱币在孝文帝时期存在过,只是时间很短,将“宣和通宝”这枚古钱币放在孝文帝时期确实有一点不妥。出版社会考虑在修改教材时将这一处图文删掉。

后生可畏!
