    CAS joint Project

    I have an interesting idea what could help you guys in your CAS projects as well. I have a CAS project on discord server, youtube channel and now a website. In short, my CAS project has QOTD, video series, and talks about the news. I just made the website and this is where I think it could be used for your CAS within my CAS project. In short, I want the website to have articles over philosophy and the news. For the news, it would cover all the sides of the story not just your perspective. For CAS there is the creative part of it so my thinking was you guys and girls could make stories over what you see happening in the world and I would post them to my website CAS project and you would get CAS credit for your creative story. Feel free to message me here with questions and or DM me with any questions. I think this idea could work out.

    My CAS Project

    I have been working on this video for a long time. The video is over Mental Health/ Illness. I will be doing a series of videos going more in-depth to certain mental illness in the near future. I believe it's an extremely important topic what needs to be heard more often. We need to break through the fear of talking about Mental illness. It starts with gaining knowledge over mental illness, and that's what I hope to help with my video series. Would appreciate if you guys give it a listen and a Like as it will look better at the end of this school year and give me more motivation to make more.

    Video Game Music Extended Essay (HELP)

    Greetings, I don't know much about the Video Game or Music in general but looking at your questions they all look like EE type of questions. Focusing on culture and what your topic means to the culture is the first and really every point of an EE. I would need to see what you thinking for your body paragraphs to get a better idea where your paper is going. But for a first look type of impression, it sounds like a solid plan. Would first have to start with the background of what culture and music/ video games have done. Can use other examples across the world to prove your point that music and video games can express culture. Then 3 reasons or so why you think Kingdom hearts and music express blank ( your question). Hope this helped some

    Trouble balancing my courses?

    Greetings, You echo many IB students inner and outer feelings. As to general tips, I would suggest a method to prioritize what HW means more. One of the ways of doing this is leveling the importance of each. Note taking may also help you and I would suggest the Cornell note-taking method this might help you when looking back at your notes to study. I will post a link on what exactly it is and how to use it. In short, you divide your paper in one third then divide at the bottom of your paper this creates 3 sections. The main section for notes, the sidebar for summarizing or keywords, and the bottom for the conclusion. Can also prioritize HW and assessments by a grid-like system where at the top left is urgent then top right not urgent and both under are not important. Obviously urgent and important are the closest and biggest assessments. Important and not urgent being long-term high-grade assessments what you don't forget. Not important and urgent are the daily quiz grades or small assessments what don't mean to much on your overall grade. cornell note taking https://www.inklyo.com/cornell-note-taking-system/ As to chem if you like videos I will link a guy under he does a really good job making complex topics easier to understand. I will post some other links some videos and some more notes these might help as well. Video sources https://www.mrwengibchemistry.com/topic-3-periodicity.html https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnKyCBclmK1dqPj9r3iw5gA Text sources https://thesciencecodex.wordpress.com/ib-chemistry/ Really good text one https://iblingswe.wixsite.com/home/chemistry-hl As far as study goes Homework needs to be done as much as possible but can't forget studying because the major grades come off of studying and knowledge. For me depending on how much homework I have I do homework for one hour more then I will study to understand what I learned for the day. So if I do homework for 3 hours I study for two. If the topic is really hard I will study for longer then I do Homework. You can keep your sleep schedule if you balance your time right, but it would be no free time or sidetracked. Realliticly with the IB 9 or fewer hours is probaly what most students are sleeping on trying to fit HW, studying, and sidetracked into each and every day. We are human so being sidetracked is second nature... when you don't understand a concept. Last tip if you can't understand something do study breaks focus on it for 20 mins at a time and take a five-minute break then study 20 mins again and repeat tell you to understand it. This keeps your mind fresher and ready to learn this complex topic. Hope this helped, feel free to message me with any questions.

    How to quote something of unknown origin?

    You can try to quote it APA style as an unknown author and date. It would look in a basic way as (NA, ND) but as what Shooting star said would be best to not use the exact quote. You can slightly change it to make it something you said if it was a paper but if your doing a presentation gets harder. Here is Con quote I like as well as more here what have an author and a source. The death penalty not only takes away the life of the person strapped to the table - it takes away a little bit of the humanity in each of us. The death penalty not only takes away the life of the person strapped to the table - it takes away a little bit of the humanity in each of us.

    IB CAS Project

    Greetings, since I last talked about my project much more has been added to my project. I have moved it from my Facebook group onto a discord channel. The discord channel is this https://discord.gg/jrafmxX where we have political and philosophy monthly topic choices as well as a question of the day. The idea behind it is to create a peaceful place to talk about what you believe without the personal attacks attached to it. Along with the discord channel I have my Youtube page/ channel where I publish videos for the monthly topic as well as weekly videos. I will post my youtube channel under this. I would love your support in my project on the discord and or youtube channel. I don't want to sound like a ten year old but more subscribers the better. Hope to see you there. Any questions feel free to reply below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCztF2l5ex4SOgWwi-qYBUkA?view_as=subscriber

    CAS Project Help

    ThankYou so much. I know I'm walking a very tight line with doing this project. But i fell it is needed a neutral as possible political videos what show more then one view of a political concern or issue. The trick is to show the advantages and dis-advantages of each idea without picking what one is better to be seen as activism. i will have to make it clear to the Ib that I'm taking many pov and not picking and choosing the better ones in my opinion... staying neural.

    Math Studies IA TOPIC HELP

    Greetings, Welcome to IBSurvival. You will first have to make the topic sentence of choice. If you are doing it for math it will have to involve numbers...Therefore you might can do viewership by region. The region would provide numbers for you to use to delve some sort of topic choice.

    Help! My school is planning to drop me to IBCP

    Greetings and welcome to IBSurvival, the only thing you can do is for one show up on time. For two you need to talk over with your IB coordinator she/ he is the only one what can work with both the school and the IB. The IB can only work through the coordinator in most cases, therefore he/she can be the only one to fix your problem. Hope this helps.

    How to survive IB chem

    Greetings, First welcome to IBSurvival. Self study is very much a IB type of mindset. Need to get used to having to study for yourself, not every teacher is bad but they just don't have enough time to teach IB level in the time their given. Can always find Youtube videos to learn the new concepts your teacher tryed to teach during that day. Bellow are some amazing links what go step by step for Chem. The first one is a video series the second is notes topic by topic. http://www.learner.org/interactives/periodic/groups_interactive.html http://www.msjchem.com For IA https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6YO6L1RT9ePeFVnSW1SRGFZak0 chem-ia-template

    Help with MY BUSINESS HL IA PLEASE

    Greetings How long do you have? Restarting would be highly not susjested, due to the amount of research it takes to make an IA. On the other side of the coin if you don't have enough research then your IA will be based to much on your own option without backing it up. The IB does not like that at all. I would try to keep the question you have and pick a online business like Wish.com or Custom Ink. Wish is a online store whats sells a lot of everything and anything. While custom ink is a T shirt and other design company whats based online but has stores in the US as well. You might can find how the stores are doing on the US locations for Customink.com. The links bellow if you some information about custom ink struggles being a online store. Might can talk about the struggles of a Massive online enterprise and then talk about what it would take to be a store in Shanghai. With both qualitative and quantitative figures. Not sure you can do this with Wish but they are a massive online store as well. Hope this helped, would be happy to help you some more if you go this direction. http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/medium-enterprise-organizations-continue-to-drive-business-value-with-workday-nyse-wday-2223913.htm http://blogs.workday.com/customink-fixed-broken-processes-supported-growth-workday/
