  1. How can you show that there is too little or not enough inflation in an economy with a Keynesian diagram? Say, for example, that a government wanted to have a 3% inflation rate, but currently has only a 0.5% inflation rate. How would you illustrate the initial problem (the 0.5% inflation rate) in a Keynesian diagram?
  2. Say you have a Keynesian diagram showing a recessionary gap where actual output is less than potential output, and aggregate demand is on the left of the full employment level of output (Yfe). If AD increases and shifts to the right, but does not reach the full employment level of output, and the price level (PL) increases, and the new AD curve is still on the left side of Yfe, would the increase in PL be called 'inflation'? How do you know whether there is spare capacity in an economy? When reading an article, how do you know whether aggregate demand is in the spare capacity section? Can AD be somewhere in the middle - in between completely spare capacity and full capacity? What are the characteristics of this section? Why are prices and wages sticky/inflexible? Can they be upwardly sticky/inflexible?
  3. Does anyone have any tips for the interactive/group oral (oral intéractif) in French B HL? I couldn't really find anything online for it.
  4. Is finding the derivative of trigonometric/circular functions, like the sine and cosine functions, part of the Math SL syllabus? Is this the level of Math SL or is it more advanced? I'm thinking of doing this in my calculations for my IA. Would it work?

    Citations and Footnotes

    I'm currently writing my Extended Essay and have a few questions about citations and footnotes. Note: my school uses MLA 7. When I use a source for the first time in an essay, must I write down the whole citation? If I then use it again later on, should I use an abbreviated version of the citation? If I have several sentences from the same source, should I put the footnote at the end of the last sentence or multiple footnotes after every sentence? Should I place my footnotes before or after a comma or full stop? Can I put more than one footnote in a sentence? Additionally, if I have multiple footnotes in a sentence, should I put them before or after punctuation? How should I reference websites in footnotes and abbreviated footnotes? If I use information that I find in a book, but it comes from a different book that the author has cited, should I write in the footnote “[A diff source] , as quoted in [my source/the book]”? In summary: what are the rules when creating footnotes and citations?

    How to cite a constitution?

    For my History Extended Essay, I use a few websites that have old constitutions of the People's Republic of China. But I have no idea how to cite them! For example: http://en.pkulaw.cn/display.aspx?cgid=52993&lib=law https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/mod/1949-ccp-program.asp Is there a proper way on how to cite them? Or should I simply cite them as websites?

    Origins of two cartoons

    Does anyone know the creators and origins of these two cartoons about Mao's 'Hundred Flowers' Campaign? I can't find any websites that have them but that also mention the name of the cartoonists and when they were created.

    MLA7 Citations

    I'm having trouble with citing a source. How would you format the citation correctly in MLA7? https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP79R00890A000900010002-5.pdf The source is a briefing: Created on the 11th of September 1957 by the NSC (National Security Council?? Is this correct?) Approved for release by the CIA in 2001 (so I guess published online in that year as well) Found on an online database (Central Intelligence Agency's Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room) Accessed on the 1st of May, 2018. Basically, the source was created in 1957, but was only declassified in 2001 (published to the public) and then published online. So when was it published?? Additionally, I researched online and apparently briefings like these were created each day for the President of the U.S. and could only be accessed by the most high-up officials. Is this true? Am I correct in guessing that the source I mentioned here is one of such briefings to the American President?

    Hundred Flowers Campaign

    Are there any History books that focus solely on Mao's Hundred Flowers campaign? Most of the books that I have concentrate on a huge period of China's history, but I only really need to read about this one event.
  13. English-wise, is a campaign launched/introduced/established/etc?
  14. My teacher said that basically anything that has been written could come up in an exam. But we've focused on many different text types: opinion pieces, letters to the editor, speeches, advertisements, propaganda posters, satirical cartoons, comics... The list is basically endless. It might not sound that interesting, which was the main reason why I did not choose lang lit at first, but once you actually see some examples, then you really understand what the subject is about. In lang lit, you have to do a Paper One where you get two questions, with one question covering two unseen texts. You pick one of the questions and then you compare and contrast the two texts. The two texts always have a common theme. In my end-of-year exam, the first question was about a diary entry from the First World War (poems and excerpts from books also come up though!) and a 1967 film poster for "The Incredible Shrinking Man", while the second one was this Lifehacker web blog post (https://lifehacker.com/what-kind-of-stuff-do-employers-search-for-when-i-apply-609209318) and a song called "Watching Me" by Jill Scott (https://genius.com/Jill-scott-watching-me-lyrics). About creative writing: in lang lit, you have to do at least two FOAs and some written tasks. I'll explain what these are. An FOA is a further oral activity where you do a presentation and analyse some texts. Think of it as an oral essay or analysis, if you like. It doesn't necessarily have to be presentation, but that's what my class mates generally did. One pair who analysed a song/poem (I'm not really sure what it was tbh) actually created their own song/poem thing, similar to what they were analysing, so it's not all that dull. A written task is much more creative. It can be anything BUT an essay. You find a text or event to respond to and then you respond to it by writing, e.g., an opinion piece or letters to the editor. So far, I've only done one which responded to an event by writing an opinion piece in the voice/style of a specific columnist. I did hear something about there being one written task which is slightly different from this type, so I would recommend you to google the specifics since I'm not sure!
  15. 1) So, I realised that I've trapped myself in an endless cycle where I often have to frantically write or revise until two in the morning. How do I break out? Personal deadlines don't always work. No matter how hard I try, I can't keep personal deadlines because, number one, the tasks usually take wayyy longer than expected, and number two, if I plan to do something that is due in a few months on a certain day but I have a deadline or a test that same week, I will usually focus on the more urgent task and forget about my plan. But you can only do that so often until it's the week before the deadline of that oh-so-important assignment. 2) Is it worth the time to make notes? Or is it better to just use my time memorising and revising the content? 3) I just had my end-of-year exams for the first year of IB and I know I have plenty of things to do before the beginning of the holidays, yet I still can't manage to force myself to work. How can I stay motivated?
