    Math IA about multiple dimensions

    Thank you! I`ll keep this in mind do my more research!

    Math IA about multiple dimensions

    Hi, I want to do my Internal Assessment using more dimensions than 3. However, I don't know exactly what I could/should do. I saw someone solving the "Wolf, goat, cabbage" problem using 3d geometry, and wanted to try to solve the "River crossing puzzle" using the same idea. I believe it would require 6 dimensions, and I would use matrixes to represent it. My teacher said she couldn't predict if it would turn out good or not. I don't know if it's too simple or too complicated. I still really like this topic, and if this is not possible, I would probably do something with a hypercube or something, but I'm not sure yet. Does this sound like a good idea? Thank you.

    EE topic help

    I have my books figured out now so I'll narrow it down. Thanks!

    EE topic help

    I told my teacher that I wanted to do my EE in English, using the work of Stephen King. I asked if it was better to talk about one book or to compare two different books, and he told me a comparison would be a more interesting choice. I was reading IT but still had to find the second book and the topic to compare. I wanted to take a completely different genre of book but that would be a lot harder and I don't have much time, so I might end up choosing another one of his books like The Shining or Pet Sematary. Regarless of what book I choose, I still don't know what topic to discuss in my EE. I was thinking about taking two characters or the way each book treats a certain theme, but I'm not sure. My question is: what are interesting topics/things to compare in horror/thriller books?
  5. For the 2020 exams, group 2 changed. My teachers haven't really explained what the changes were, nor how and what we have to learn for the exams. Since there are no past papers (or at least that I know of), I am kind of lost. For our lang B class, we are talking about sharing the planet. It feels a bit odd, because I haven't found the connection with learning a language yet. Does anyone know anything more specific about the changes in the curriculum or how we are going to be assessed? Thanks

    What's your study schedule?

    That's a great idea, thanks!

    What's your study schedule?

    Thank you!! I am doing physics, chemistry and English B HL and history, math and portuguese A SL. I also have 4 non-IB subjects that I have to study for. My plan was to study my HLs (and math) almost everyday and my SLs about four times a week, and the non-IB subjects just once a week, since they aren't that important.

    What's your study schedule?

    I've just started the IB and I'm having trouble organising my study schedule. I have to spend most of my time in math, physics, chem and history, but still don't know how to space my study blocks. Do you have any tips? What should I do to study? Past papers? Exercises? Thanks
  9. My school offers Portuguese A at HL or SL, English B only at HL and French and German B HL or SL. Nothing too crazy and not as many options as many other schools.
  10. I've just started the IB and I'm doing Physics HL and Chem SL. I was thinking of doing both of these at HL but I have a problem: my school has a very bad schedule. The science HL and lab classes are at the same time, so I would have to do some self studying. My math teacher told me I could do math HL if I wanted to (which I don't). There are a lot of people in my class doing a science and math at higher level, so I would like to know which one is easier (considering that I'd have to split my time with the two sciences). If you have any thoughts or tips, please comment them below. Thank you.

    Am I making a mistake?

    I think the first thing you should do is check the universities' entry requirements for the course you want. As far as I know, competitive universities won't accept you if you do math studies, and they usually require either math or a Science at higher level. I've also heard that history HL is a very complicated course, so the fact that you are doing that and bio HL is good. About visual arts, I wouldn't worry too much because it's standard level (unless you want to study visual arts at university, then you should probably switch to hl). Wish you the best of luck with your subjects
  12. I want to study Astronomy in university and I'm thinking of doing Chem HL and Physics SL. I know that I should probably be doing Physics HL, because that's a lot more connceted to Astronomy that Chemistry is, but I know that I won't be able to get a good score in Physics HL. I also really love chem. I've looked at some universities and their entrance requirements and none of them specified that you need Physics at HL to get in. I'm just curious if they are more inclined to choose someone who did Physics HL instead of someone who did two sciences, but Physics SL. Thanks.
  13. Thanks! I know that it is possible because so many people do it but I feel like my school doesn't have enough resources to push their students forward. They have a very specific student profile that they want and that's not what I'm aiming for. There are so many subjects that they don't offer and I think that it's because no one does really well on the IB in my school.
  14. I’m starting the IB next year and I’m planning on taking Chem HL and Physics SL, but now I’m starting to get nervous because I don’t know if I can do it, since people have been telling me that it’s very hard to do two sciences and my school doesn’t like it very much. I really love chemistry but I don’t know if I can handle the amount of content. I don’t enjoy physics as much and I’m also not the best at it, so that’s why I’m doing it at SL. Plus, I think that it’ll give me better chances to get into a university. I just want to know if it’s too hard to take two sciences and also if the amount of work is not overwhelming.
