  1. Hi guys, so I feel that IB and the IB diploma isn't worth it anymore because for my university I don't get college credits for SL courses and I don't get credit for HL Bio (which I need for my major). All I get is credit in History and English but I don't need them for my major. Can I just write my name on the IB exams and take a nap? I don't want to go through all this work of taking pointless exams, so I should get more sleep. Also I didn't do pretty well on my IAs so I doubt I'd get a passing score. Any thoughts?
  2. Are you modelling the spread of Ebola using SIR model and derivatives?
  3. In the Math SL exploration, I have to address two of the Group 5 aims. I chose “enjoy mathematics, and develop an appreciation of the elegance and power of mathematics,†and “develop an understanding of the principles and nature in mathematics.†How do I show this? I'm doing the spread of Ebola as my Math SL exploration topic.
  4. February 11 is when the final draft is due, but I have to get 1000 words in by January 20.
  5. It's not complete (only 500 words) and I would like to know if I'm headed in the right direction. I will share you my document as a Google document, and then you can add comments/suggestions on the document there. It makes it easier for me that way. If not, I can send an email with a word doc.
  6. I was going to use something along the lines of "By looking at these AoKs, I will consider..." or "By looking at these AoKs, we will consider..." Are any of these pronouns acceptable to use in a TOK essay?
  7. The prescribed title (from the May 2015 prescribed titles) is: 4. With reference to two areas of knowledge discuss the way in which shared knowledge can shape personal knowledge. I'm looking into Human Sciences and Art as my AoKs, and possibly Perception as my WoK. For Human Sciences, I will be discussing socialization and conformity, giving real life examples such as Milgram's experiment. In Arts, I will be discussing cultural movements and changes (Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism, Post-Impressionism). I came up with a knowledge question for this prescribed title, and it is: How far does shared knowledge give certainty to personal knowledge? How is this knowledge question? Is it decent to write my TOK essay on? Can you help me create some more knowledge questions for this prescribed title?
  8. Which one and explain why? It seems like number 4 with personal and shared knowledge is like a freebie. What do you think?
  9. This is urgent because I need someone to look over my Common Application essay (College Admissions essay) and give feedback on it. I can email it to you as a Word document.
  10. Like do the National Honor Society meetings count as CAS as Service hours?
  11. I currently have a CAS project, and I'm interested in starting a second one because I love volunteering and doing service. Is it possible for IB? Or would one project have to count as normal hours? Also, is it possible to add two CAS projects onto Managebac?
  12. Any fellow Boy Scouts out there? I'm wondering if being in Boy Scouts counts for CAS as it is a youth service organization. Or do only service projects in Boy Scouts count for CAS? I attend Boy Scout meetings each week, so can those add up to CAS hours? Also, what would Boy Scouts go under? Creativity, Action, Service, or any combination of the three?
  13. I'm president of the Art Club this year, would running the club count as my CAS project? I think the Art Club only involves creativity, and I heard IB wants at least two of either Creativity, Action, or Service? Is there something I need to include into Art Club to make it a worthy CAS project?
  14. Thank you! exactly what I was looking for!
  15. Where can I find the IB 20th Century World History Syllabus? Post me a link.
