  1. Hi Everyone, you probably know how it feels to start researching your EE, especially if there isn't so much literature on it. My topic is especially complicated as I chose to research the Effect of methanol, ethanol and propan-1-ol on the photosynthesis of the plant. I tried to find sources but it seems as there isn't any material connected to my research topic. I would really appreciate if you helped me find any useful literature and give any advice regarding my research. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
  2. Hi, I'm in my second year of IB and I really need help with trying to process my ee data. My research question is how does the thickness of a metallic strip affect the amplitude of the strip in a standing wave. I am open to any recommendations to change my question. I have all my raw data but I'm stuck on how to process the data. The raw data is the amplitudes from the standing wave. If there are any possible formulas that I could use which includes amplitude in it I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
  3. Hi I am a student and we just started to choose our ee topics. I was thinking of writing a Math EE. Im thinking of writing about vectors. so my topic is "The role of mathematics in missile defense systems" im trying to link it with vectors, trig, and some calculus so i can come up with an equation to actually shoot down missiles given the speed and location of the enemy missile. Could you guys give any advice or comments on the research question or the idea?? Thanks
  4. Hey guys If possible, could you please let me know if this is a good enough research question for an Extended Essay in Literature? Research Question - How does Cormac McCarthy use the relationship of the man and his son to address themes of morality in his novel The Road? I know there's a lot of meat when it comes to morality in this book, and the relationship of father and son seems to form the centrepiece of it. I'm just not 100% sure if this question will help me fulfil all the requirements for a literature EE. Thank you so much.
  5. Doing my EE in economics. Could I do competiton between Asian food importers? OR i could do competition of Indian restaurants.
  6. I am clueless as to what my EE question is, I have a general idea of it but there's a gray area. It's either gonna be a literature or English paper. I want to discuss Hamilton the musical, hip-hop, rhyme, and how they can all mix together. I need help my TOK teacher us even clueless as to what it can be, any suggestions would be big help.

  8. Hello, I am in Grade 11 and am about to embark on the journey on writing an EE. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice, or critiques on the question I am going to submit? I don't have it fully written out but its about how women in houses/windows are used to symbolise their feelings of entrapment in both House on Mango Street and The Yellow Wallpaper.
  9. So I'm getting into the nitty gritty bit of IB - all the IAs are due in the next two weeks or so - and I haven't done much yet. I just started and completed my TOK Essay, Spanish HL IA, and History HL IA in the last two days so now I'm starting on the EE and the English IA. I haven't firmly decided on a topic yet but I was thinking something along the lines of "to what extent did Islamic influences on Spain lead to the superiority of the Spanish Empire in the 16th century?" Is this a good topic to go with? Or will it be too difficult to find primary sources? Or do we even need primary sources for the history EE? Also, what is the format for the History EE? Is it like the IA? Or do we have more freedom? I've looked at various examples but they're all drastically different. I haven't received any advice from my school on how to go about doing this - IB is kinda inefficient, poorly-run, confusing and messy here - so I have no idea what I'm doing at any given time. Any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  10. Hi guys, I have completed the experiment for my EE on testing the efficiency in blocking bacteria of medical masks of different levels of performance and I wonder how to my research question could look focused and professional? My original research question was simply: How efficient do medical masks of different performance levels prevent infiltration of bacteria? I want to elaborate on it, but any ideas? Thanks.
  11. Hi guys. I have already looked through lots of ee on econs and I found out that most students did their ee on market structure, e.g. to what extent is ... operating in a perfect competition? If I were to do my ee on market structure, will it seem to be lacking originality which IB examiners are looking for?
  12. Hey guys:) I need to start my extended essay soon, but I don't know what to write about, I am definitely doing it in english though. I have an idea, which is to analyse an album and talk about the literature in the album. For example, if I take the album "Vessel" by twenty one pilots, I could talk about the use of metaphors and highlighting the characters mind set. Is this a valid idea, or should I stay away from music completely Thanks for the help means a lot
  13. Hi guys! (Just to give you some background about me : I am very interested in economics but my school does not offer it in group 6. So I sacrificed it in order to take history at group 3 which is a recommended subject for a law degree.) I do not have in-depth knowledge in econs but I studied econs in IGCSE(which is why I developed an interest in econs). I would like to do an ee on econs but I was intimidated by this :"the more background a student has in the subject, the better the chance he or she has of writing a good extended essay. Choosing to write the extended essay in a subject that is not being studied as part of the Diploma Programme often leads to lower marks" quoted from Extended essay guide. Any advice or similar experience on this matter ? Thank you very very much .
  14. I am just about to hand in my final draft of the Extended Essay. I am not sure where should I put the Acknowledgement section. Should it be at the very beginning, before the Works Cited page, or in the appendix? My teacher said I should throw it into the Appendix and I guess if I don't it will be taken into the 4000 word count. Did your teacher tell this to you as well or just my teacher?
  15. For the extended, I would like to do an investigation of aspects of the Fibonacci Sequence that apply to real life. Would this work?
  16. So we were supposed to come up with our EE topics a few weeks ago, and I sat for hours on end trying to come up with something good, but alas, I really couldn't think of anything... so for temporary measures, I put in: RQ: "What is the effect of different cooking methods on the vitamin C content in Solanum S. tuberosum?" Topic: Vitamin C content in potatoes prepared with different cooking methods I have a few questions, though: 1. Do you think that this topic is sufficient to write about or should I start thinking of an entirely new topic? What kind of mark might I be expecting to get out of this? Around a C? 2. Additionally, would this fall under the subject of chemistry? Thank you for your help!
  17. Hello, so my supervisor recommended this research question to me: To what extent can microfinancing in the Philippines help women and families escape the poverty trap? I personally think this is way to broad. Help?
  18. Hello, I was just wondering if it is acceptable in IB to do your IOP and EE on the same book. So for example, if I did my IOP on Into the Wild on X topic, could I do my EE on Into the Wild on Y topic? Thank you,
  19. Heey guys, I have am kinda stuck with my extended essay, I mean I kinda figured out a title: "Determining the acidity level of (insert fruit) and determining which is safer for (insert illness) patients?
  20. I will write my essay about the global food crisis, I'm not sure how to start my introduction! Any tips?
  21. Hi, So i'm an IB1 student and I've chosen to do my EE in English...Except I'm having a tough time selecting a topic and my school isn't much help.. So I've narrowed it down to 3 topics centering around feminism: [ just a rough ideas, I have no idea where I'm going with them] 1] Cross-cultural examination of feminism/ cross cultural views on feminism- I was thinking of Murakami Haruki's anti-feminist narratives/stereotypes that portrays Japanese patriarchal society and a western work to compare the cultural differences in portrayal of women? 2]Depictions of feminism by male and female authors- is this a common topic? 3] Changes in role of women through the years- I've yet to select books for comparison but i will if this topic is valid Soo....yeah, I feel like all of them are fairly common but this is all i could come up with. I wanted to do something off the beaten path but i'm this close to giving up..Gahhh
