  1. Having studies to back up any answer to the exams is crucial, I think. If you don't learn enough of them in class, I suggest some websites like ibpsychnotes or ibguides. Try not to rely completely on the notes though - it's always best to find original copies of studies, or even just abstracts. Best of luck~
  2. just use "historians say...", or better, name the type of perspective: e.g. "some post-revisionist historians say..."
  3. I'm revising for the paper 2, and I find it extremely confusing to sort out the results of collectivization under Stalin. I know that politically, it can be considered a success for eliminating the kulaks, but economically, how successful was it, say, by WWII? The information I've been seeing on the Internet seems to be contradictory to each other. Some claim it a great success while others claimed that production declined towards the end, or even that production started out poorly but improved greatly by the time war broke out. I'm really confused because economic results should be very quantifiable and statistically-based. Which is the truth??
  4. I hope Weimar Republic is on there... it always is. (Also praying for some general Hitler/Stalin question
  5. So I happen to have an overly confident Spanish teacher who believes in his class so much that he thinks we can figure everything out as we enter the exam room in May... Since our class has been taught alongside our school's non-IB Spanish class, I'm wondering if there's a specific syllabus that IB has for each language course that includes the necessary vocab and grammar for this level. Also, I see that for Paper 2, the written responses require you to organize your responses into specific formats (letters, blogs, invitations, etc.). Yet even with an "invitation", there are several ways that can be written - is there a set format that IB is looking for, and are there any IB-specific resources online?
  6. So I've been wondering how different P2 is from P1, other than content, of course. In terms of writing essay responses, is there any defining difference? Also, looking at the prompts from each section in the options, I feel like some of these prompts don't seem to be essay prompts judging by the command terms, e.g. "Define resilience." If this was P1, this kind of prompt would probably be an SAQ? Do these prompts get changed into long essay prompts on the exam, or are these prompts not going to appear on the P2? How much flexibility does each prompt have? I feel like I just lack general understanding regarding how P2 works...
  7. Psycho-pass was wonderful... probably something on utilitarianism? This guy wrote a good essay on Urobuchi Gen (creator of Psycho-pass) and utilitarianism to get you started: http://wrongeverytime.com/2013/12/02/wrong-every-time-gen-urobuchi-and-the-human-spirit/ Might be a good idea to look up interviews with the author if you're interested in this idea.
  8. Umm... what study are you replicating?
  9. I realized that I have chosen an AOK that I understand very little on for this essay. Even after researching certain perspectives in more depth, I'm not sure how an essay using the AOK of ethics is written, especially one where you have an argument to evaluate on like PT 6: "There is always a trade-off between accuracy and simplicity". How can I evaluate ethics if ethics consists of so many perspectives that so often conflict with each other? This is an incredibly elementary question to ask at this point of the course... But if there are so many perspectives, how can you ever claim that any of them is right or wrong or both right and wrong? Even if you go with the classic answer that "while this part is valuable, this other component still has to be considered", I still find this quite difficult to in examining the accuracy of any ethical perspective. Any insights?
  10. "To what extent was Hughes impactful to the Harlem Renaissance with his poetry" is along the lines of something more do-able. WHen talking about a specific person or event in relation to a greater event, "to what extent was_______ significant to _______" is always a good place to start, since IB loves "to what extent". It allows you to evaluate different factors and alternatives. I did mine that way, at least, and it did quite well.
  11. So sorry for double post! (can't delete.....
  12. The only parts I enjoy in math are geometry, trigonometry. I wanted to do an IA on origami, and am considering the idea of folding a paper lucky star (those things where you start with a thin strip of paper, fold pentagons, and pop it up in the end). Sad thing is, I have no mathiness in me. I'm wondering if I can do an IA on finding the maximum volume of such a paper star? Advice on what I should do: a) Stick with the idea and develop it (...how to develop it?) b) Origami stars/origami shapes in general are cool. Find something else about it that has IA potential. (...but like what?) c) Screw my ideas. Go serach up potential IA topics out there to refer to and absorb knowledge from. plagiarize d) Give up on math. Go to sleep and never wake up

  14. What about measuring the pH value of composte waste? Perhaps easier to measure? But then I don't actually know how you measure that, and if the topic relates to plant growth, is it still chem at all?
  15. I'm thinking of measuring temperature and time and stuff, so hopefully that's not physics? The problem is that I don't know if our classroom has any viscometers...
