  1. agree! you know you're in ib when you constantly stress about accidental plagiarism and citing (or is it just me?)!
  2. I will delete this post once it's answered Is this OK for my main KQ? Is our perception of the world affected by the various types of knowledge around us? RLS: why people are scared of flying in planes eventhough stats show the probability of being in one is very low + plane crashes over the years has been decreasing WOK: intuition, emotions, imagination (touched on language) AOK: maths, (touched on human sciences and the arts) I talk about how movies (the arts), the news (hyperbolic and constant coverage on plane crashes), make us think plane crashes are very common. Thank you for your time!
  3. that is so true what am i thinking LOL // oh yeah thats actually smart HAHAH for psychology ee's, is it necessary to base it around notable studies? Because I found a couple of studies from sagepub journals/researchgate that are quite decent in helping me develop small points, but have yet to find proper sources for "notable" studies" (have yet to find notable studies related to my KQ too!)
  4. WOKs are a fundamental part of TOK, surely you can include WOKs SOMEWHERE in your presentation? maybe you can see what WOKs are used in order to create the knowledge claims you identified? For me, I don't know how to discuss about AOKs in my presentation haha!
  5. That is true, but what if the source doesnt cite the articles? or what if they reference multiple sources in the end, but do not specify which part of what they wrote are gathered from which articles?
  6. Hi all, I know that journals are the best sources for information in terms of psychology ia's, but would it be bad if i cite sources such as: a slideshare that has concise information about the topic simplypsychology.org psychyogi.org A citation/reference used in a wikipedia article? I am having trouble finding free (clear and concise) sources for the studies I will be talking about in my IA (Pickel 1998, loftus 1987, Yuille & Cutshall 1986)
  7. Hi all, I might use sentences from this abstract for my psychology hl ia, however, i don't know how to cite this. Can someone help me with this? Thank you in advanced https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9709443
  8. Hi! i am doing my practice tok presentation in a week or two's time, and i have found an rls that i kinda know how i would answer it for my presentation. My rls is a ted talk abt why we should listen to vivaldi's four seasons (rly entertaining!) my kq might either be "under what circumstances does language play a role in the arts" or "how does imagination/emotion help us perceive the arts" <if someone can give their input/opinion on this that would be amazing :)> i have other ideas for a presentation (theres this article about how a tribe in africa uses music to communicate with their ancestors instead of entertainment, so i was thinking of using a KQ like "how can the arts give us knowledge about cultures/societies?") that i know is TOK worthy but i dont know how to answer -- should i use my current rls for my real one and just find another rls of similar AOK to work with now? -- please let me know what you think!
  9. This is so informative omg I hope it didn't take too much of your time/energy to type this It was very, very helpful I can't thank you enough!! Have a nice day
  10. For me, I do C- Piano, literary magazine team (School), BGIC (basically MUN but Borneo) A- badminton, hill walking, horse riding, DOfE S-leo club(collaborative fundraising club), mentoring KS3 students Most of my CAS exc horse riding and piano are school clubs, i hope this gave you some ideas!
  11. (because you said someone please say something) you can go look for the ib failing conditions (does D in TOK count as a fail?) and compare them to your results to see if you will fail IB but you should make what is left of your time to start studying hard + start doing your ia's. do chunks of each subject everyday if possible (i know its hard but if you really want something to happen, then you have to find time) if you really feel hopeless i think you should talk to your school's counsellor or a professional or you can consider doing a levels if you feel that you will do better in ib best of luck, im sorry if this wasnt very helpful :/
  12. Warning: dumb questions ahead! You don't have to answer them if you dont want to! what information does one need in order to write resolution clauses? Will the research we do for our countries play a big role in this? what are they REALLY based on?
  13. I'm not sure about this but "methodology" is an aspect of an AOK framework, and its about how knowledge is gained in an AOK and the process taken to gain it. So for art, questions regarding methodology include: What counts as a fact in this area of knowledge? What role do models play in this area of knowledge? Which ways of knowing do we use in order to connect with, and understand, the arts? Which ways of knowing do artists themselves use in order to create their works? I'm not sure if this is any help but its just to clarify what your teacher couldve meant by methodology Do ask your teacher for clarifications! best of luck!
  14. Hi! I am planning to do my Bio IA on how do different light intensities affect rate of photosynthesis (of a pondweed, idk specifically what species yet) IV- light intensity. I aim to place the plant away from the lamp in various distances (5, 10, 15, 20, 25 cm) DV- CO2 uptake by plant (measuring pH of water) OR counting bubbles of oxygen produced in/per one minute OR measuring oxygen produced by using a gas stringe 1. Is it necessary to have a lux-meter to measure the lux of the light intensities? Or will just stating the distance of the plant from the lamp be enough? 2. To measure my DV - which way is the best? A. i am not sure how I will set up my experiment properly if I were to measure the CO2 uptake by the plant. B. Otherwise, will counting bubbles of oxygen be a reliable way of measuring the rate of photosynthesis? C. I might use a gas syringe to measure rate of photosynthesis after 1 min (or should it be every 10 seconds?) Sorry if this was slightly unorganized, I appreciate any feedback/suggestions, thank you for your time!
  15. actually yeah i take back what i said, 3 points is worth quite a lot now that I think about it, heh
