    • I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I did my Maths IA on RSA, explaning how it works, etc. I got a 6/6 for use of mathematics, so I believe you should fare well as long as you include detail about modular arithmetic and the phi function, as well as ideas such as Euler's Totient Function. Of course, there could be a different criteria for EEs, but i'm just telling you.
    • Hello, all who have clicked on this post I would like to simply ask you one question about my ee, specifically whether you guys think its tooo simple or not. So, for my extended essay, I've chosen to do physics (o god), and the sub-topic of astrophysics (double o god), I have come up with an idea for my ee, which is Investigating how the Luminosity, Mass and Surface Temperature of Main Sequence stars are interconnected. Is this too simple for an ee, or do you guys believe it has the potential to be a good if not decent ee? Oh, and the essay will be a database EE, (creating an experiment, and fitting data to come with some conclusion) (I won't go over the specifics such as research question and experiment that I will do since I fear plagiarism.)  As a side note I do want to study astrophysics in university, I know that writing an astrophysics ee in ib is suicidal, but I wanna do it because i believe its a good challenge.   So taking all that into consideration, what do you all think?
      Thank you, - a stranger of the internet
    • I would suggest that you get both a math teacher and a CS teacher to look over it briefly. You can still change your subject. If you focused on modular arithmetic then it's probably fine as Math EE. If you went for overview and how the two work logistically then maybe CS is better. Length-wise anything over 3000 words is quite long for a Math EE, but nevertheless perfectly acceptable. When you revise, make sure you know whether it is Math or CS, and aim to make the whole essay organized and technical. 
    • Hi,  My investigation question so far is "To what extent did the Spanish colonies in South America improve the Spanish economy?" or as my teacher recommended, "To what extent was the Spanish colonies in South America the main factor that affected the Spanish economy between 1492-1650?." Either way, I am stuck as to where to research sources, let alone what I should focus on.  Should I focus on just the spanish colonies and analyse two sources with opposing perspectives? 
    • I am doing my Math EE on cryptography : comparison of RSA and Diffie-Hellman on the basis of mathematical function, ways to solve them, and performance. I just completed it, yet I feel so unsure about it. Is there enough math? Is it too much computer science?, etc. I wrote 3960 words. Any suggestions? Thanks =)
