  1. do you want to do the volume of makeup or the measurement that's already in the products (grams and millilitres)?
  2. HI! I take Psychology HL on Pamoja and it's really easy to follow. The teachers respond to messages in 24 hours or less, rarely more. 3 of my friends take Economics SL on Pamoja and they are all getting 6s, they tend to complain that their teacher takes a while to respond to messages but he never takes more than two days. They never complain about the class being difficult to follow and they follow the class to the point where they are able to explain things to someone who knows nothing about economics, me. The biggest weakness when taking Pamoja is when you have group tasks. You could either be assigned a random group or told to choose your own members of the group. Some people, just like members of a face-to-face class, are not very cooperative and tend to not contribute to group work but that could always be solved by talking to them and your teacher. All of the students at my school that take Pamoja consists of those that take Philosophy, Psychology, Economics, and Film. Each of us has a class of about 50 students and up to 5 teachers with one teacher being the main one. There are also some youtube videos on Pamoja. If you'd like to look for more threads on Pamoja, please use the search bar on the top right of the page and type in the keywords "Pamoja", "Economics Pamoja", and such. I hope this helps you somehow! Cheers
  3. And if your school doesn't provide everything you need, Pamoja has online IB classes that aren't too difficult to follow for SL or HL.

    Hi, I don't mean to be rude but the title of your thread should firstly be relevant and specific. e.g. "Maths Exploration Topic Suggestion Needed". It will also help others to look for similar topics if you use tags such as Mathematics, Maths HL, Maths exploration, Maths Exploration Topic. There are also pre-existing threads on topics similar to this with a quick search on IB Survival. The search bar is on the top right. These are a few: https://www.ibsurvival.com/topic/44674-math-ia-topic/#comment-279210 https://www.ibsurvival.com/topic/44419-math-exploration/#comment-278527 https://www.ibsurvival.com/topic/42304-math-ia-help/#comment-271796 Hopefully, you find what you're looking for in one of the links or in other threads. Cheers
  5. Hi, thank you for the input. My teacher had previously informed the whole class that the way to format the KQ is by explicitly stating the AoK hence my question's focus on ethics. I also chose ethics as it interested me and I'm planning to link it with philosophy and psychology when explaining hence the use of the term "ethical decision making" and "emotion". I guess all ToK teachers have their different opinions but I'll take your advice into consideration.
  6. Hi all, I'm currently doing a mock TOK presentation and I have gotten my main RLS and the RLS that I will link everything back to in the end. The AoKs that I am focusing on are Ethics and partially History. The WoKs that I chose are reason and emotion. Specifically, I am trying to focus on how ethical decisions can be justified by reason and emotion. I still need news example for the counterclaim and claim. I have two claims; The first being that reason is the most reliable justification for an ethical decision and the second being that emotion is not a reliable justification for ethical decisions. My two counterclaims are basically the opposite of the claims. These claims are derived from the main RLS of mine which is the revoking of the net neutrality law. These claims are then later further validated by my other RLS for the ending when we link back to the main RLS and another RLS that is different but relevant. This is what it currently looks like: RLS: Net neutrality law was removed Definitions: Ethical decision making and Emotion 1. Claim: Reasoning is the most reliable justification for an ethical decision Example: ? 2. Counterclaim: Example: ? 3. Claim: Emotion can cloud one’s ability to make ethical decisions Example: ? (Possible psychology study) 4. Counterclaim: Emotion strengthens the justification of ethical decisions Example: ? (Something about religion) Link back to original RLS and then link to China's strict omission of information both online and physically. I need help to find issues or news that are linked to this topic since I had only found two so far. I will appreciate any sort of recent publications that I could link back to my KQ. Any news or issue suggestions for Claims or counterclaims will be greatly appreciated. If I am at risk of being plagiarised, please tell me. Thank you in advance.
  7. Yes, this would be helpful. Any presentations, videos of people giving their TOK presentations, including their TKPPD would also be very helpful. We're trying to practice as much as we can and prepare ourselves for the correct structure of the presentations.
  8. Hi everyone! I would highly appreciate it if anyone would like to share their previously done TOK presentations from last year or later. This is the first year that my teacher is teaching TOK and our class kind of needs some presentation videos to see the proper way to present. We've currently seen around 4 videos and none of the presentations were from last year so they're all using the old format. Any recordings of any TOK presentations would really be helpful for our class to learn about making an A grade TOK presentation. I do hope to receive some good presentation videos that my class could see and learn from. Thank you in advance for anyone who sends a link to their presentation. - K

  10. You might want to edit this and give your IA a little background and explain why you need people to fill in your survey
  11. Hi, I meant more like instead of towards how they are trustworthy and factual, you could look towards how a WOK could be used to decide whether or not an AOK related to the topic you chose is true or false. Like the example I had mentioned, "To what extent can reason and emotion be used to make ethical decisions in the making of art?", this looks at how reason and emotion could be used to make ethical decisions rather than, let's say, "How is an artist responsible for ethics in their making of art?" The second question might have more of a confirmation biased answer since it is specifically asking for how they are responsible for ways they are responsible while the first question is looking towards whether or not reason and emotion can even be used to make ethical decisions and to what extent. I realise that it might not make sense since your question is "To what extent can we know that scientific reports are factual and trustworthy?" and it does look at the extent of how factual and trustworthy they are but while researching. It's not how your thinking might be biased based on the credibility of the report, it's more of how you might end up focusing only on how credible a scientific report is rather than looking at how it can be unbelievable. Yes, I do mean add the WOK and AOK to the KQ. I'm sorry if this was all over the place -K
  12. You're right about the universities, I haven't seen many that specifically state which science they prefer over the other, even for the course I want to take, which is psychology. I take HL Biology and it is difficult. I think your choice of class levels are to be suited to the universities you have researched. I don't know much about veterinary sciences but according to the University of Glasgow, you might want to change your Chemistry to HL together with Biology HL. It states that for the Internation Baccalaureate "Chemistry HL6 AND Biology HL6 AND Mathematics OR Physics at SL6. A minimum of 6 points in English at Standard Level is also required." It really does depend on your University of choice's IB requirements. I hope this helped -K
  13. Hi, I've actually heard about this issue a few times. Your teacher is right about how you might want to look at why people trust the report. Your question could be modified to look at it from both points of views. Maybe instead of "To what extent can we know that scientific reports are factual and trustworthy?" you could add a WOK and an AOK to make it less biased to one side of the belief. For example, there was a student sample presentation where they had chosen the controversial photograph of a starving child in Africa that became quite popular. They made implicit and explicit claims. Implicit claims being about art and photography and responsibility while the explicit claims were straightly taken off of the article itself, involving the name of the photographer and what he did. The student then generated four questions to make the ultimate KQ. The KQ that they made didn't focus on whether people would believe it was right or wrong. It involved two AOK. "What should be the role of Ethical decision making be in the production of art?" was the one the student went for. "To what extent can reason and emotion be used to make ethical decisions in the making of art?" could be another one. So then when you make your presentation. This is a website that helps with effectively structuring your presentation I hope this somewhat helped.
  14. Hi! Recently I was told by a friend who is a teacher at a school in the UAE that Math Studies will actually not be offered to the coming DP students for reasons I sadly forgot. I do however think that dropping down to Math Studies isn't the best choice. From what I have seen in multiple Universities is that they don't even mention anything about a Math Studies and always mention Maths SL/HL. Often times, they don't even mind which one you take and I often see that the minimum requirement is 5 for both HL and SL. I hope this helps!
  15. For English: If it's English LAL, you could do a big five chart that involves Audience/Purpose, Tone/Mood, Content, Structure, and Stylistic Devices. For Biology: There's this guy called Alex Lee on youtube that does all these Biology unit videos. This website is also good for notes - K
