I am currently going into my junior year and starting the IB soon, but from my understanding the IB has made changes to the assessments and there will no longer be the IOC and IOP but a different kind of oral assessment. What are the differences between the current oral component and the new oral component? Will the texts be unseen? If you are aware, please give a detailed explanation! Thank you
The topic is ok and has the potential to score well (15+). Be sure to explain your steps carefully, especially as to how to verify the the equations used to describe the vase and how to verify the integral experimentally. I would suggest picking a smooth vase (without much grooves) and it may be even possible to figure out the average thickness.
I'm currently a junior in high school and just completed my assessments last week. I just got back my results and I'm so upset. I'm failing SL math. It's a really hard class and just when I thought I was doing better I get an IB 3. I think my predicted will be an IB 3 and I don't even think that's a passing grade. I don't know what to do. Should I drop to Studies or not? I feel so stupid and I'm not doing as well as I want to and it's my fault to the extent where I should be putting more work but I'm also dealing with things outside school and it's very hard for me to balance that. I was also doing well in Econ (IB 6) then I suddenly get an IB 3 on my final... I feel so stressed and scared i feel like no university will accept me and I just need some advice. Anything.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
I have found a new idea for my math sl ia but I don't know if it's good enough for me to proceed with it. As a result of my research I found that I could find the volume of objects such as vases with the use of the volume of the revolutions of solids formula and some other mathematical processes. Do you think that the use of this concept and combining it with a real life object is sufficient for a SL IA?
Thank you in advance
I'm sure you have been told this countless times, but a hyper-specific and focused RQ will make your life so much easier. "Flourishing of knowledge": clarify what that means/drill down. "Be attributed": this can be reworded to offer more of an explanation on what direction you will go and also help to focus your research.
