  1. Hey Guys, Honestly, this frustrates me a lot. As at present, I've begun to think about my extended essay in my freshman year, and I just focused on chemistry becuase I'll probably go for medicine or chem in uni and that I know I've got great passion on it. So, I talked with my teacher a couple of times, and today we just found out there was a lovely apparatus in the lab to measure what I want, which is just great, but then we together came up with the conclusion that it is more of math then chem, and the teacher said that it would make my math EE even more outstanding with experimental data from science if I do so. It would be way risky and challenging when I take it as a chem EE than a math one. I could sense that it actually is an excellent topic for maths though, the apparatus's really easy to operate, otherwise if I choose chem, I have to design my own lab rather than just using it, and it surely can make my life easier and gain a good mark I believe, I'm fine with it and it's not a big deal for me to change it into math because I'm a math guy. The problem is that so far I just see no point in doing so. I don't actually want to spend all my time on math, though I get better marks on that than chem and any other subjects, I don't have that much passion, and definitly I won't go for it in uni. Therefore, I don't think it'll get me prepared for my future. But in the meantime, I've also heard that it's so difficult to gain a good grade in experimental science. Apparently the process is important, but I know that the result of it also counts a lot. What am I going to do with it? Are there any advice ? Thanks a lot!
  2. Hey guys, I was doing a past paper question when I came across this question, So it is what is needed for active transport of glucose into a cell? Energy Glucose concentration outside the cell A. needed Higher concentration than inside B. needed Any concentration C. not needed Higher concentration than inside D. not needed Any concentration I know that energy is needed in active transport, but when it came to the concentration outside the cell, I was confused. To my understanding, if glucose is being transported into the cell, and since it's the active transport that needs energy, glucose should be transported against concentration gradient, right? If so, I think to make this happen, the concentration of glucose outside the cell should be lower than that inside the cell. Can you guys please explain a little bit and help me pinpoint where I was wrong about my idea? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hey guys, How did your chem class celebrate the mole day yesterday?
  4. We're learning mole at school right now. What my teacher told us and I found really helpful is CANCEL UNIT. It means when you do the calculation, you do not simply calculate the numbers, you also calculate the unit. For example: the unit of speed is m/s, and the unit of time is s, speed multiplies time equals distance. Why? It's beacuse when you multiply the two unit(m/s*s=s), the s is cancelled, and it becomes the unit of distance. Same in mole, the unit of mass is g, then when it's divided by g/mol(that's the molar mass), it becomes the unit of the number of mole. In this way, you won't be struggle with those boring numbers.
  5. I would say keep asking questions. More communications with your teachers will certainly make your life a lot easier. At least it works for me.
  6. Hi there, I'm a new IB student and I guess I'm not clear enough about my schedule. I was just wondering whether there are PE classes/activities for IB students( if they didn't select PE ) so that I can get my sport bag prepared in advance . Thanks a lot!
  7. I'm with Award Winning Boss. Just go for the it, do not stop beliving yourself and try your best. Good luck!
  8. Hi Arnold, I just looked around a bit on the Internet. Based on what I discovered, it really is an excellent Uni in Canada (Top1 or 2), plus Tronto is a famous livable cityin the world. I really consider it as a good choice for you. Have you got any career plans?

  10. Hey guys, I was just wondering what's the difference between the word zahlen and bezahlen, I understand that they both mean ' pay for sth. ' in English, but what's the exact difference on the grammatical side? And can you possibly explain them by giving me examples? Thanks in advance.
  11. Haha, actually I'm not a Math patriot. But anyway, thanks a lot for the advice!
  12. Thanks for the advice! And, there're another two questions I'd like to ask---①I am now kinda worried about the vocabulary, cause I didn't attend any Pre-IB programme before, I just finished my high school course for the first 2 years in China(then will directly start my IB courses), though it overlaps a lot with IB, it was taught in Chinese actually. Would you recommend me some methods, or websites? ②Also, pronunciations of these terms are different according to British or American accent(Teachers in my schools are from USA and UK),will it be a problem for me when having classes? Thanks a lot! Thanks for the advice!
