    Bad Paraphrase reference- plagiarism ?

    Nope, as long as there's some reference in the essay you're fine.

    It’s not. Used some random point as an example as the original question didn’t mention any.

    Maths HL Intro to Calculus Questions

    @literaturegirl Are you sure that (1, 2) is on the graph of f(x) = x^2 - 5?

    Maths HL Intro to Calculus Questions

    1. Use first principles formula. However, quotient rule is quicker alternative... 2. First you find the slope function of f(x) = x^2 - 5, which is parabola. To find the tanget, you need to know the point where they're asking you for the tangent, any point as (x,y) for example (1,2). As the slope of function f(x) x^2 - 5 is f´(x) = 2x, just plug in the x-value of the point (which is 1 in this case) --> 2 x 1 = 2. That's the SLOPE of the parabola at point (1,2). Hence, you can use the line equation: y - y0 = m (x - x0), where m = slope at the point, so 2. Substitute point (1,2) to function as x0 = 1 and y0 = 2 ------> y - 2 = 2(x-1) and calculate it to get nice equation.
  7. Hi I gave my EE already back, and I just read about paraphrase quotations... I didn't did it correctly like I put the footnote number a the end of my paraphrased paragraph but I didnt begin my paragraph with "According to blabla".. I did mention the source but would it still considered as being plagiarism? Thank you in advance

    Problem with EE subject

    Soon it’s time for the to choose subject for EE. I would like to hear your advice. In the future my goal would be to study Business. However, I’m not doing EE on Economics as I think I have enough studying in it with all the IA’s. Psychology is one possible, like doing topic eg ”psychology in business / negotiation” but I’m not sure whether it will benefit me enough, as it’s mostly about theories and studies in Psychology. English would be the last option. I heard it would be easy to get good grade, am I right? I’m good at analyzing stuff, but the question is about what topic I would choose in English. Eventually, are US/UK universities interested in what my EE topic/subject was? Is there anyone who has done EE in psychology, is it mostly studies/theories based?
  9. Hello Can I put Bibliography after Appendices? Or Appendices should be in the end? I have some references in Appendix, so..
  10. If any MYP dare have entrance exams, they're out of their minds and it's not worth it. DP starts in grade 11. Your son is 6 years from that. Let him have fun and enjoy childhood.

    This is a somewhat bad chemistry topic, because you need a relatively strong grasp of physics (eg free body diagram on the marble and drag equation, consider the buoyant force, likely then use net force to find acceleration and time). Another thing is that any data you compare to are also empirically-found, rather than based on some theoretical model (ie very hard to extrapolate, can only interpolate). It does involve some thermodynamics (thermal chemistry) but it wouldn't be a strong chemistry topic, This would be an ok to good physics IA topic, though.

  15. yeah um they don't mention anywhere that you don't get your diploma if taking math studies. And you'd think schools would mention that if it were true.

    Biology HL IA topic ideas

    Hi there, I'm currently thinking about what type of experiment I want to do for my bio IA and I'm really stuck! I looked through a lot of past IA's and they look really complicated and so in-depth! I want to make sure that I have a fairly original and easy hands-on experiment, but the problem is that I can't find a good way to expand and analyze the topic. That's why I'm trying to think of a good question thoroughly so that I won't regret my choices before its too late! As of now, I'm interested in enzyme activity, yeast fermentation, and maybe something to do with micro-organisms in pond water? I have no idea on what to explore on these topics but I'm just brainstorming as I type this. I am also interested in maybe investigating these mutated lemons that I recently grew in my backyard. There are currently 4 of them on my tree and they are giant! I have a slight hunch that its due to cross-breeding with the kumquat tree neighboring the lemon tree, but I feel like this topic will at least give me some personal engagement points! However, I don't really know how I should experiment with this subject and I feel like I won't have the right materials in order to do an in-depth investigation on genetics for a student experiment. The picture below is of the mutant lemons for your curiosity. Any ideas on how to explore the topics listed is very much appreciated! If you don't mind, feel free to share your own experiment and your score so I can get a feel if IB also looks for complexity in an IA investigation question. Thank you guys!
  17. So for my IA i decided to look at viscosity and the effect that temperature has on the viscosity of honey. The experiment doesn't require any chemicals and i'm really worried bc i want it to be a good report. For the procedure, i was just gonna heat up different samples of honey and drop a marble in them to see how much time it takes to reach the bottom. Is my topic too simple? My teacher said that it could be the simplest experiment ever but if u do the report and stuff right then u can score really high. How can i make it more complex? I'm in SL chem btw. Research Question: How does temperature affect the viscosity of honey?
  18. Hi, I'm doing an extended essay about a book. I did a lot of researches and I have like 15 sources (including the definitions I searched). Is it "bad" that I researched so much ? Like, it's literature and I read somewhere that it shouldn't be too much sources and there should be more thinking and analysis from the person who is writing an EE in literature. Thank you advance, I'm really nervous

    Stolen idea

    Cite it, if you get caught everything you have worked for is gone. Plagiarism is not taken easy, so just cite, no harm in doing that. Good luck with the EE!

    Stolen idea

    It is also possible to find an academic source that says what your internet source says and cite that instead.

    Stolen idea

    There is always that possibility. It often ends badly for you if they find out. The safest bet is to go back and find where you got the idea from and cite it.
  22. Yeah so briefly explain what prompted you to change topic and how you came up with the new topic.

    Would it be possible for them to find out?

    Stolen idea

    When in doubt, it's best to cite it. Since you are using the ideas of another person it would be best to cite. Claiming it as your own (no citation) is generally considered plagiarism.

  28. Thanks for your answer! So i need write reflection on the current topic and mention the change of topic in the firs reflection right(my teacher says it is going to increase my personal engagement grade if i mention so)? Thanks!!!
