    EE Help!!

    It is possible to take the Fourier transform of any continuous function. However, the method involves numerical integration, which is way beyond IB HL.

    EE Help!!

    Hi everyone, I need help with something. I am doing my Extended Essay in Maths, had an idea, but my idea is not possible, realized too late, and now I have a Theorical Framework full of Derivates, Integrals and mainly Fourier series. So, I have one of two questions; 1. Is it possible to get a sinusoidal equation for this waveform? If not 2. Does anybody know something else I can do involving this things? Thanks
  5. I speak French better, However, I will be going to Chinese language courses this summer. The course I'm planning to go is very intense so I think my Chinese can get better.

    HELP

    Hi Everyone, I am currently in grade 11, year 1 of the IB program, and am unsure as to whether or not I should continue with the program. I am a US resident, with state citizenship, however, I am living abroad. I am the second class to take IB at my school, very much guinea pigs. I am not planning on going to any big name universities, but rather a state school. I have a 3.9 GPA, a 1350 SAT score, and cannot decide whether the IB program is worth all of the stress and hassle. Is the IB going to put me leaps and bounds beyond others in college? Will it help me in terms of scholarships to a great degree? These are all questions that I have. I am taking English Language and Literature HL, Psychology HL, Biology HL, Chemistry SL, Mathematics SL, and Japanese Ab Initio SL. I would greatly appreciate any comments, advice, or ideas. Thank You

    Do I need IELTS?

    So, I am doing English Lang/Lit HL in IB and I will be giving my mocks soon. So I just wanted to know will I be required to do IELTS exam or not because of me doing Lang/Lit HL. Also how long are the IELTS valid for?
  8. Hey, I think you can do your EE on any topic even if it is out of your syllabus. Although I am not really sure why your teacher told you not to. Because the EE expects you to research and write with not much prior knowledge about the topic.
  9. Hey! So, I don't think there is any such policy to do your extended essay on something that is in your syllabus. The main aim of the EE is to learn and research. But maybe your teacher is refraining you from doing this topic might be because I don't know, maybe he doesn't have enough information to help you out? But I think you can do your EE on any topic.

  11. The EE question I came up with was "To what extent is the market for airplane travel from Lisbon to Porto a contestable market?". Contestable markets is an economic theory invented in the early 1980s, that differs from the classical ones, and suggests that an oligopolistic or monopolistic market will provide at the productively efficient price, not the maximising MC = MR, because of the constant threat of new entrants taking way their market share. Airlines generally are an example, but it depends on the barriers to entry. This topic seems very interesting, and I have a lot of sources, but "Contestable markets" is not a topic in IB economics. Is it still ok to do this topic then? It's weird because my teacher said I can't, but I've found extended essay reports that have research questions that go outside the syllabus, including some about contestable markets. Can anyone tell me what the IB EE policy for this is? Thanks in advance Btw this is a repost
  12. I'm writing a history EE about Quebec and I'd say about 1/3rd of my sources are entirely in French. There were one or two that I could find actual English translations for, but otherwise, a significant amount of my citations are not in English. Could this create a problem for me? I know that French is one of the three "accepted" IB languages (I think the others are English and Spanish), but I'm worried that my sources could be considered "wrong" if a majority of examiners could not read them. Thank you!

    extended essay

    To share a personal perception you should give examples, make parallels, pick up the analogy and use various associations. Try to add unexpected turns of thought and unpredictable conclusions. It will allow you to express yourself. And if you can't, this review will gladly do it for you, as it did for me.
  19. You should be fine. Do the language you speak better: Chinese or French.
  20. I mean...it is literature. Some people are gonna find it interesting and others will find it boring. I covered myself with fake blood for my IOP because I felt it was needed to add to my analysis to Macbeth. Don't pander to your audience, other than your teacher since they mark it (although I would assume they find literature interesting if they're teaching lit).
  21. Ah I see. Just because it would be a bit boring and out of context for that type of a presentation?
  22. I would be careful about that, metaphors and literary devices are sometimes best left up to interpretation. However, if they do seem really abstract, it may be helpful to say your rationale behind using such abstract metaphors, but I would be careful about doing any level of in-depth analysis.
  23. Cheers. Do you think I should do some in-depth analysis just briefly because I feel that some of my metaphors are a bit abstract and might require an explanation
  24. Oh damn yea it's a FOA, it's been a while since I've been in IB. But yea since it's Lit, definitely look into how poetry expresses literature differently than monologue, and how your poem enriches what's already there. I don't think you should compare your rationale to your poem. A poem should be natural, and a rationale should contain all relevant information and your thoughts on why you chose to do this. I think a rationale can be rather brief, but again, ask your teacher to confirm this. You shouldn't need to break down your poem line by line or anything like that.
  25. Thanks! I didn't know Langlit had an IOP I thought it was FOA instead but anyway yeah i'm doing lit SL. Do you think it should be about the same length as my poem?
  26. Yo. I'm not god but I'll try to help you anyways. I think your question depends on whether you're taking Lit or LangLit. If it's LangLit, then I think focusing on your use of words and literary devices/detail would be more important, since that is more the focus of the course. For lit, I think a huge focus should be on how your poem provides insight/analysis to this character/novel, and how it allows for literary enrichment by presenting the internal monologue in poetry form. Your approach really does allow for flexibility. I've never actually heard of an IOP rationale, so I can't help you with the formatting. I feel like asking your teacher would be the best bet. I would assume that the rationale is just to prove that you've put serious thought and consideration into your IOP, so I think it'd be important to communicate that (like why you are doing what you are doing).
  27. The short answer is technically not, but it certainly looks a lot better if you continue to do some creativity stuff throughout IB because it looks good, and adds credibility to your other activities so it's not "doing something for the sake of CAS and nothing else". You can certainly do it at a reduced pace though, like maybe an hour or two per month.

    Hopeless about my World History IA

    I've never been able to be good at History thats why I decided to choose a topic that is my insterest which is art and I formulated my question like "To what extent can art in Renaissance be seen as a turning point in Western intellectual and cultural tradition?". My teacher told me that its not about history more like just art(history). How can I formulate my question so that it should be more historical?? For God's sake help meh:(
