  1. I have completed few reflections and checked all my learning outcomes for each activity (ie creativity, action and service) Is that enough?
  2. For the IB math HL exam I have heard from the graduates of M19 exams that slowly the exams are getting harder and that IB is tryna test us on our intuitiveness than what we can just regurgitate information or just solve problem, based on how we were taught. So in order to really prepare for my upcoming M20 exam, I assume that the textbooks wouldn't cut it, past papers MEH! I guess.... although they are essential, they probably won't give u anything for the M20 exam, cuz IB knows that we are using past papers, so they try and make exam harder and gives some hecka twisted question... that would make us cry in the examination. So for the IB math HL examination, I was thinking of looking for something big, something that is bigger than myself. I was thinking of some uni level practise-questions that is immensely good for exam practice. Does anyone have any suggestions???

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    Well I since, I am quite interested in the topic and I did do prior research on normalization before DP1 and in-fact did my Grade 10 personal project on Schrodinger's equation. I guess for my EE, I might as well take it further by talking about the intricate mathematics of the equation.

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    Hey I just read the guide... it say IB discourages student from taking topics, that are too complicated. Do you think, my topic is way to complicated for a Maths EE?

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    I not necessarily working out normalization of a particular wave-function, and just explaining the normalization , but my EE as I have mentioned before is explaining HOW the unitary operator (time evolution) of the SE work to preserve the inner products of the function thus preserving the SE's norm for all times. I don't really know how much of a mathematical explaining I have got to do for this.. but the actual explaining of the mathematical operator of SE, I guess gives it away. I don't really understand what you really mean by personal engagement (is it to show how enthusiastic am I about the topic, idk I hope you can explain) like you menstioned about "not much original content" .... ofcourse in the guide it say that restating secondary research or not giving any personal research at all is not good for a "good enough grade". I think by personal engagement you mean... when some himself/herself do some personal research (correct me if I am wrong), but to me undestanding why the SE stay or not stay normalized over a period of time seems quite intriguing and I literally don't have a clue about how to answer and approach my RQ as stated at the very beginning. Although the answer to the RQ is pretty well know to the scientific community... to me it's just a black canvas. So, could me myself actually trying to learn, deciphering and demonstrating my understanding be the reason behind the preservation be a personal engagement??? Again I want to appreciate the awesome help you're providing me with and helping me understand the whole situation. 😁😁😀 U're the BEST!

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    Essentially I was thinking of this structure for my essay: - A consider a particular function with a normalization condition - Then I would evolve the function in time and show that it is normalized for all time - With that out of the way... I would explain why the SE stays normalized and here I dicuss the mathematical propertise of SE and it's unitary functions; time evolution. Essentially researching what gives away to the preservation of the wavefunction. I understand the explanation is more mathematical than physics, but what I really fear is writing a maths EE with complex mathematical explanations. Infact, do you need complex mathematics such as vector calculus and eigenvectors to make my EE good for A or at-least a B, what exactly are the examiners looking for? Or I'm I good explaining the whole preservation thing with some IB calculus and some-what uni-level mathematics?

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    Hey, I just looked at the EE guide and found that we could use secondary data and the candidate may very well get a high grade for the theoretical physics EE From guide it says: "Students can choose to answer their research question with an essay based solely on theory or one based on data and theory." "Student using data elsewhere can assess all assessment criteria and achieve the highest marks" So what do you think... is the explanation of the SE preserving it's norm a more mathematical based EE or physics based. I understand if I consider a mathematical basis of this question I would have to go pretty deep into complex mathematics such as eigenvectors, vector calculus and as an IB student it way over me and I probably won't have time to even study them individually for my essay. Whilst the physics I may make use of my calculus and highs school mathematics and merge them with explaining the physics behind the norm of particle in a box and how it stays normalized with of time

    How difficult is to write a Maths EE?

    Hey thx for the reply, I was actually thinking about this research question: "How does the Schrodinger's equation preserve its normalization?" Now the concepts and theories in this questions heavily relate to physics and in-fact the question stated above was my RQ for my EE of physics, the subject I initially chose to work. Unfortunately, my teacher, when I presented my RQ to him today, he said that the RQ was way to theoretical and that IB considers theoretical essays, that solely rely on secondary data and not consider any experiments, to be ugly (hence a connotation for IB giving me a C or even less). So me taking my teachers advice that he switching my entire EE subject to maths, and focus on the mathematical reasoning behind how the equation's unitary functions preserve it's inner products, therefore keep the SE equation normalized at all times. I don't know if you understand QM... but it seems like you have pretty good experience with IB maths. If do understand QM, is it cool if we continue the conversation in depth and I share my EE structure, and hear u're thoughts??
  9. How hard should I work? What approaches should I take? Would it be difficult to get an A, than a physics or any-other EE??
  10. Possible IA topic: "Devising an experiment to prove maxwell's equation"
  11. "How can the normalization of a wave-function in one dimensional infinite box stay normalized with its evolution of time?" I essentially wanted to discover the concept of normalization and how beneficial is it. This is my first attempt to a RQ. PLZ can anyone take a look at it!
  12. I am doing a physics research EE on Normalization of the wave-function, I really don't have research question yet. But I was wondering does your EE research have to be perfectly correct or does IB look at the process and everything.
  13. Is it better to review topics from my DP 1, or is it better to work on new content for DP2
  14. As an international student, can I get into a Uk uni, with a regular IELTS instead of UKVI?

    How to study for HL Math and SL Physics

    True.... I have been doing past papers a lot, and questioned whether it was ethical or not. But, in the end I am gonna give the IB exam, whether I like it or not, hence past paper is the way to go. Sometimes, even if you do past papers, you don't get to do all of them. In fact teachers has a whole archive of paper since before 1980s, right? So they tend to give questions from all over the time, so may be 1 or 2 question comes from the questions I practiced, but the rest is just unknown. So in the end... it's still a challenge.
