  1. Hi! So I'm doing Game of Thrones for my EE. I wanted to do something along the lines of power or morality, and I have a bunch of quotes and ideas written down on how to structure the essay. My problem is how exactly to word the thesis and research question. I want to analyze how different characters use power, how that is connected to the theme of morality, and who is most fit, in the moral and practical sense, for power. I'm thinking of focusing on Tyrion and Daenarys for sure, since they both exhibit interesting ways of handling power, and they are both relatively moral characters. As a comparison, I'm thinking of doing Cersei, since she is cunning and willing to do anything to protect her family. It would be cool I think to talk about her good and bad sides. Is this a good idea? How should I phrase it? Are there any other characters that would be more suited to the essay? Thanks in advance for your time
  2. Hey all, I'm posting for my friend as she doesn't have an account here. She wants to do her EE in physics, something to do with prosthetic limbs. This is rather personal for her because she herself is an amputee. She wants to do something with muscle reflex.. But she has no background in coding. Any suggestions or directions to specifying this? Thanks
  3. I'm thinking of doing my EE as an analysis of power and ambition within Cersei, Tyrion, and Tywin Lannister. My teacher is iffy about it, because he is unsure of whether it is an appropriate novel for a literary essay. Do you think it's worth literary analysis and will make a decent essay?
  4. Chronicle of a Death Foretold was simply amazing. I also really enjoyed Ibsen's play, A Dolls House
  5. We read A Dolls House in Pre, and Death of a Salesmen in SL English Literature
  6. The article doesn't have anything to do with macro. It's a perfectly good article. It talks about market failure. Talk about how clean air is a common access resource, and the different ways of preserving it. You can use the carbon tax for your graph, showing the effect on Qe and Pe. Hope that's enough to get you started!
  7. It's very possible to do a good analysis of that paragraph, however I don't recommend sticking with this article simply because you are referencing such a small portion of it. IB might not like your choice of article. That being said, just find another article pertaining to the same event, and you won't have to change a lot of the work you already have done.
  8. Analysis: do you know your stuff? Are your definitions correct, are your graphs accurate? Application: Have you applied your knowledge of econ to the article correctly? ie. If there is an increase in supply within the article, you've drawn a shift of the curve to the right. Not something unrelated, like an MPC curve. Evaluation: This is the trickiest. Here are some tips as to what to include to meet this criteria: 1. Discuss how the article affects different stakeholders (Consumers, workers, producwers, government, banks, foreigners) 2. Prioritize argument: "the group MOST significantly affected is..." and explain why 3. Pros and Cons of whatever policy is being used 4. Limitations of economic theory: limitations of fiscal and monetary policy, GDP/GNP stats, economic growth, etc. (This mostly applies to macro and international, not so much micro) 5. Short run vs. Long run Analysis (Again, mostly for macro here) Hope this helps!
  9. You have the definitions mixed up. Price ceiling: a government imposed legal maximum a producer can charge for a good or service Price Floor: a government imposed legal minimum a producer can charge for a good or service Price ceilings are put into place normally when the government feels the existing equilibrium price is too high, thus the price ceiling price will be BELOW the equilibrium. In your article, the government is raising the price ceiling, thus bringing it closer to the equilibrium, in order to help producers. I drew out what's happening in your article here: http://www.ibsurvival.com/files/file/3272-ib-survival-help/ Hope this helps!
  10. The IOP is stressful, trust me. If you saw me do mine, I would've seemed calm and collected, but really I was freaking out. It's all about preparation for the IOP. Finish your presentation quickly, and practice practice practice. I practiced till my voice was sore! I got a seven though As for the actual content, go through with a pad of sticky notes and point out everything that seems important. In the end, grab your laptop and stuff it into one word or powerpoint and you're good to go
  11. I've taken SL Language, and I can tell you that it's pretty time restrained. If you have trouble with writing quickly and on the spot, I highly suggest you don't take this course. I know it's SL, but because it has to be completed in less than eight months, and there is so much content to cover, it tends to go by very quickly. The HL course lasts for three semesters, and they don't do a LOT more content, so it's a lot more manageable. I've only heard about the Lang and Lit course from my friends at a different school, but based on what I've heard, it has to do with analyzing different forms of texts (i.e. blogs, news reports, articles, etc.) as well as traditional literature studies. In contrast, the Language course only does literature (i.e. books, plays, and poems). Again, if you're not good with time constraints, go for HL. It's a lot less stress that way. One last thing.. I did that for my Works in Translations essay too. It's not that big of a deal, a lot of people do it. I just don't recommend you do it every time, because for the exam, (SL Lang), you have to write a comparative essay in about an hour. All the best
  12. An extended ending and explanation of the character of Bayardo San Roman in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" It was incredibly fun to prepare and present, and I got a seven
  13. I'm currently in my first year of IB and I have the same HLs you are thinking of taking. It's really not as bad as some people make it out to be. You seem to have scored well in Pre, so I'd say you can probably handle it. As for your SLs, the languages are generally pretty manageable, Biology you did well in, and business is in general a pretty easy course. In the end it really depends on you. The HL combination you have is one of the hardest, but if you have a genuine passion for those subjects, and it's essential for your career path, go for it. Good luck
