The 2022 college entrance exam physics creates real situations related to the actual production and life, scientific and technological progress, and tests students' ability to build physical models and flexibly apply their knowledge of physics to solve practical problems, to promote the cultivation and development of students' core literacy.

For example, question 14 of National Paper A takes the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games Shougang Ski Jump as a context, which closely combines the subject content and sports activities and guides students to love sports. Question 25 of National Paper A takes a light-point flow detector, which can measure tiny currents, as a context, and closely integrates it with science practice, guiding students to understand the physical ideas contained in the design of the instrument and to form a serious and rigorous scientific attitude. Question 14 of National Paper B takes the situation that astronauts can float freely on the "Tiangong II" as a context to test students' understanding of the nature of weightlessness in space, reflecting the major technological developments in China in the new era and enhancing students' national self-confidence and pride. The 18th question in National Paper B uses a smartphone to measure the geomagnetic field, requiring students to argue the measurement location and the direction of the y-axis based on the results given in the question, allowing students to appreciate that science and technology affect our lives and learning, enhancing students' interest in a physical experimental investigation and developing their sense of evidence.

3. Strengthen experimental design and develop students' experimental investigation ability

Experimentation is an important way and means to develop students' literacy in physics. The 2022 Advanced Placement physics exam strengthens design in the understanding of experimental principles, the design of experimental schemes, the selection of experimental apparatus, the use of basic instruments, the processing of experimental data, the drawing and interpretation of experimental conclusions, etc., tests students' experimental ability and scientific inquiry ability, gives full play to the positive guidance of high school experimental teaching, and guides teaching Emphasis on experimental investigation, guide students to do their experiments, and effectively improve the experimental ability.

For example, the 22nd question of National Paper B takes radar detecting the position of a high-speed aircraft as the background, and asks students to transfer the familiar punctuation timer paper tape processing method flexibly; at the same time, the question asks students to give the reason for the aircraft's approximate uniformly accelerated linear motion, which tests students' ability to express themselves using physics terminology. National paper B, question 23 detects the voltammetric characteristics of the resistor to be tested in a certain current range, requiring students to design the circuit schematic of the experiment and select the appropriate equipment according to the purpose of the experiment and the experimental equipment provided, with a certain degree of inquiry.

Chemistry test questions: focus on core literacy and promote teaching-examination convergence

The 2022 high school entrance exam chemistry test questions to implement the fundamental task of establishing moral education, fully consider the basic laws of education and teaching, the logic of chemistry subject content, the cognitive characteristics of high school students, and actively connect with the reform of high school education, to help "double reduction" work. The test questions are designed to strengthen the connection between theory and practice, to reasonably select situations, to enhance the connection with environmental protection, medicine, health, energy, and materials, to highlight the main content of the subject, to promote the formation and development of candidates' chemical concepts, scientific thinking, and correct values, and to guide candidates' comprehensive quality improvement.

1. Selecting real situations and highlighting values

The test questions are based on a wide range of materials, and they focus on the fields of materials, life, environment, energy, and information, which are closely related to chemistry, and they fully reflect the important role of chemistry in promoting the development of science and technology and the progress of human society and highlight the social value of chemistry.

For example, the nature of coenzyme Q10 in question 8 of National Paper A shows the role of chemical research results in human health. Question 35 examines the relationship between the structure and properties of the polymer materials used in the venues of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, showing the development and application of new materials in chemistry in China. The method of carbon dioxide fixation and reuse in Question 8 of National Paper B helps China achieve the goal of "carbon peak" and conveys the idea of green chemistry and sustainable development to students.

2. Deepen the basic examination and promote students' active thinking

The basic content of high school chemistry includes the theory of the structure of substances, the properties of typical compounds, the principles of chemical reactions, basic chemical experimental methods, and experimental design ideas. The college entrance examination chemistry test paper focuses on these basic contents, and deeply examines students' understanding of ionic equations, Avogadro's constant, basic concepts of organic chemistry (organic reaction types, isomers, functional groups), elemental properties and periodic laws, ionization equilibrium of weak electrolytes, etc., effectively identifying whether students' foundation is solid, thus guiding secondary school teaching to follow the laws of education and strictly follow the high school chemistry This year, the chemistry questions in the college entrance exams have changed their design.

This year's college entrance examination chemistry questions change the angle of questioning, changing the test method, requiring students to reasonably analyze the causes of the properties of substances, speculate on experimental phenomena or products obtained from reactions based on property data and experimental phenomena, guiding students to develop independent learning, independent thinking, self-improvement habits, and abilities, guiding teaching to improve quality and efficiency, and helping "double reduction The "double reduction" implementation. For example, the national paper A, question 10 around a water-based electrolyte zinc-manganese dioxide ion selective double diaphragm batteries set the situation, requiring students to use electrochemical principles to analyze the direction of ion migration, determine the positive and negative electrodes and speculate on the electrode reaction.

3. Focus on the core elements, and test the key abilities of the subject

The design of the chemistry test focuses on the core literacy of chemistry, and realizes the examination of the core literacy of chemistry such as "macroscopic recognition and microscopic analysis", "change concept and balance idea", "evidence reasoning and model cognition". The test is designed to examine the core qualities of chemistry. The questions are innovative in the way they present information and ask questions from unique angles, requiring students to understand the basic laws of chemistry from multiple angles, levels, and dimensions, and to test the key abilities of the subject in analyzing and solving chemistry problems to guide the cultivation of students' core literacy.

For example, question 35 in National Paper A examines the laws of ionization energy changes of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen,d fluorine, allowing students to understand the relationship between atomic structure and elemental properties. Question 28 gives the effect of different conditions on the equilibrium conversion rate of the "tithe titanium chloride" reaction, which examines the concept of change and equilibrium thinking, and guides students to deeply understand the nature of chemical equilibrium. Question 26 of National Paper B presents the process of lead paste recovery, provides the solubility product of insoluble electrolytes of metal ions, requires students to analyze the whole process based on data, analyzes the final existence of different elements according to the nature of substances, and guides students to think about the transformation conditions of different substances.

4. Focus on teaching reality and promote the connection between teaching and examination

The questions of the college entrance examinations insist on taking the curriculum standard as the main basis for proposing questions, and test studtesting' familiar knowledge content in unfamiliar situations, which not only meet the selection requirements of higher education institutions, but also help students to play their actual level, guide students to understand the laws of chemical reactions from different perspectives, and effectively promote the interface between basic education and higher education.

The curriculum and teaching reform pay more attention to the cultivation of experimental operation ability. IToTothe conTheon between teaching and examinations, this year's GCE chemistry test questions are based on "the application of hydrolysis of salts", "the properties of iron and its compounds", "the investigation of factors affecting the movement of chemical equilibrium" and "the investigation of common functionalities in organic compounds". "The test is based on the basic principles of chemical reactions and the ability to analyze experimental phenomena and draw conclusions based on the purpose of the experiment. For example, experime question 13 in National Paper A examines the hydrolysis constant, the effect of acidity on chromate equilibrium, and the properties es of alcohols and divalent iron.

The 2022 chemistry test explores the integration of two major chemical theories, chemical reaction principles and structure of matter theory, with the content of other modules, prompting students to build a systematic and comprehensive system of subject knowledge and to walk in the same direction as the concept of curriculum reform. For example, question 35 of National Paper A examines the relationship between structure and properties of ethylene, tetrafluoroethylene, and their polymers, integrating the influence of the structure of substances on their properties and their applications, which helps students establish the causal relationship between macroscopic properties and uses and microscopic structures.

Biology test questions: enrich the form of examination, examine the degree of understanding and depth of thinking of students
