1. ## Math Studies calculator assistance

Normal distribution / Inverse Normal. Simultaneous equations. Tan cosine and all is a given. Chi square tests Lin Reg Mean/Median/Mode/Quartiles via the 1-VAR or 2-VAR stats in Stats --> Calc You can literally do everything with your calculator using the tables for function questions like finding max.min, intersection, etc. It's so useful.
2. ## Biology SL - Papers [1] [2] - Discussion!

For environmentalists on Paper 1 MCQ I said (A). I was thinking between A and D. Something about damaging corn? Or those organisms harming other plants... It was D i think, that other insects who are integral in ecosystem are also harmed. Something along those lines.

It was the RER (rough endoplasmic reticulum), because you could see blurry ribosomes attached on its walls. When the line is going up, that's depolarization, going down is repolarization. But wasn't the question asking about returning to resting potential? Oh gosh maybe I misread it Yeahh, I'm sorry! It was actually D. The question asked when it reestablished the gradient.
4. ## Economics HL - Papers [1] [2] [3] - Discussion!

I had written since the quality of goods had increased, the PPC would move outwards. But to think of it, maybe it would have been more appropriate to say that a point moves, as the PPC moves only if there is an improvement in the factors of production, as opposed to the good produced. So hm, I was sure until now. Haha I answered that a point inside the PPC would move outwards, but I am not sure as well! I think it could be argued that improved bed nets lead to higher quantities of labor (lower mortality), and as labor is a FOP, PPC moves outward. I hope that both are accepted answers. Oh yess I did say that the labor force would be healthier and all because malaria used to be a main thing to increase mortality rates there!! Yes yes, that works perfectly! Thank you for reminding me:P And that's why quality of labor forced increased, will push out PPC!

6. ## Psychology Paper 1

I don't see why not-as technically it is a theory of memory-as long as you ensured you kept referring back to the question Would this apply to the cognitive 8 mark question as well as the essay? I used Speisman et al. (1964), the study where different emotional responses were provoked depending on the stimuli I think it would, but Speisman would be more appropriate for the interaction between cognitive and biological processes since it is essentially "testing" Lazarus' theory of appraisal.
7. ## Psychology Paper 1

Interesting to hear this. I did the same. I had studied how behavior could influence cognition and physiology, so I felt screwed when the question came up on how cognition and physiology could interact to affect one behavior... But it went alright in the end. What behavior did you link it to? I might be wrong, but don't they both mean the same thing? If you reword the question it basically is "In terms of behavior, examine the interaction between cognition and physiology." If that makes any sense But again, Psych learning outcomes are my weakest haha But the behavior I linked it to was stress and how meditation helps control and reduce stress levels; used Davidson et al 2004, and Vestergaard-Paoulson (2009) Exactly the same as me! However, I linked it to cardiorespiratory fitness instead. It's not the same though. That learning outcome wasn't what we got. The question was something like "Discuss how cognitive and physiological processes interact to affect one behavior", which tripped me up when I had planned to talk about how behavior affects cog. & phys. processes. oh oh ok! The command terms
8. ## A book that led you to have passion in literature?

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Kesey

I think I did the "Examine one interaction between cognition and physiology in terms of behaviour. " Talked about meditation studies

Nope, it was a trick question all you needed was C + I + G + (X-M)
12. ## English A Lit - HL Paper 1

I did Into Silence as well. I talked about the argument that was occurring in the present which had the reader wonder why, until the following paragraphs with the help of flashbacks try and explain the initial "problem". The author first exposes us to the tension between the two parents, and what Janey felt about; how her disabilities were "taken care" of by taking her to Talagon(?) and then how her mother was disinterested in her learnings as opposed to her father who learned to speak to her on the train - thus tying us back to the beginning where the mother took it as 'an offence' that Janey's father can talk to her but she couldn't. which kinda got me confused - the mother wasn't interested in learning what Janey did right she was happy she (Janey) could read lips and understand her mum and "that's all that matters" and then Janey (described with great diction) asked what about her mum understanding her! So, bottom line - her mum was a slow learner but by the time of the quarrel between the two she learned how to understand Janey/??? Oh and in terms of literary devices I thought it was interesting how there was no imagery whatsoever but just feelings and sensory things all around; the smoke surrounding and all that. I wasn't sure if Janey was blind but I mentioned the absence of vivid explicit imagery perhaps because of that.
