    Is art useful?

    I recently discussed with a person, who tought that art is utterly useless, and all public arts funding should be stopped. I don't fully agree, since art may not be useful, but some things can be done just because one wants, just like others enjoy sports or mathematics. Please share your toughts and don't feel offended by this topic, I just want some toughts and discussion. If you feel poll is lacking something let me know and I can add it ^^

    Can computers think?

    Depends how you define thinking! Computers still only obey programmed commands and they can't make logical conclusions like humans can, but on the other hand they do their thing very effectively, and that could be compared to less developed thinking, for example way the animals think.
  4. Just wait until you start TOK... Trust me, I believe to have had a viewpoint similar to yours before I started that boring yet somehow interesting course (If you want to get an idea of what I'm indicating about the sciences, you could look into/read Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions). But this has nothing to do with OP's original question so we'll end it here Any discussion that is even loosely related to topic is welcome But well, on this poll as I said I want to see people's opinions about that are all things measurable and explainable just by exact sciences, human sciences are kinda different thing, for example philosophy focuses on posing those questions, and theology explains deities, so then propably everything would be explainable. So I'm including just natural sciences.
  5. In this poll I'm including "hard" sciences, mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry and maybe psychology.I don't see how would for example history be even relevant for this poll :/ Interestingly enough situation is tied, let's hope more people will answer so I would have more relevant data about this
  6. So, answer the poll, question is do you think the science can understand everything, or are there things that go beyond human understanding? They may be deities, Gods or stuff or then natural things, like how does human feelings work, and can they be seen just as measurements and science. Just anything, that you think the science might not be able to understand. Comments and arguments apprechiated.

    SAT Math 1 or 2 ?

    You definitely need to take SAT Maths Level 2 if you're applying for engineering - it tests more advanced maths (the equivalent of standard level maths minus the calculus topics), however, all the topics that are tested on the SAT Level 2 test aren't in the IB syllabus so you'll need to self study those topics. And since you're doing higher level maths you should have no problem doing well. The maths that you're tested on is equivalent to that of the SAT I (reasoning) maths section, so it's not hard at all. Either way, you're better off doing maths level 2 since you're applying for engineering, its actually required by some universities. Thanks for the answer!But you made me a bit curious,,, how do you know where am I applying? I don't but since you're taking the SATs, it is obvious that you're applying to the American universities since they only require SATs. They don't in Europe or Asia? New to me but it's a bit creepy that you knew I'm gonna study engineering.., Merry Christmas time! You tagged engineering...... Facepalm of the day :') Thanks for all responses!

    SAT Math 1 or 2 ?

    Hi! I'm wondering if I should take Math 1 or 2 SAT's :/ I'm doing HL math and quite well on it, I had 6 on last mocks. Has anyone been on both and what is SAT 2 level compared to IB HL math?
