    Need advice!

    Hi there! I'm in need of advice concerning IB in general as well as exams. Obviously it's best to talk to my school coordinator, which I plan to do, but thought this might be a helpful starting point. I'm in grade 11 and am supposed to be taking my exams this upcoming May. I won't write out the whole story here, but if you're willing to lend a helping hand I would really appreciate if you could message me! The past few months have been very crazy and I'm just trying to figure out how to move forward in regards to the program. Again, I'd be extremely grateful if you could provide some advice just for a couple minutes.

    This is really helpful, thank you! I don't know if it makes much of a difference, but I was thinking about looking into the sugar content in soft drinks by titration as well. I think I would have more personal engagement when discussing soft drinks and its health effects rather than fruits. Maybe then I would be able to look at different brands and compare the sugar value already labelled to mine to help consumers. In terms of the experiment aspect however, I'm not sure how much harder/easier it would be than if I did it with fruits.

    Chemistry II

    Thank you for your response! Just to clarify, you recommend modifying my topic so that instead of merely investigating which fruits out of the ones I have chosen have higher glucose/fructose content, determine why that is the case? Would this just be something to discuss after I perform the experiment, or something I would need to incorporate within the experiment? I plan on doing more research on the effects of glucose/fructose in foods to hopefully link my investigation to a health aspect. This way, I can say that my investigation aims to determine glucose/fructose content so that consumers can choose suitable fruits according to their needs, if that makes sense. Sorry for all the questions - chemistry, and labs in particular, are not my strong suits.

    Chemistry II

    Hi there, I am a grade 11 IB student in SL Chemistry. I will be starting my II (Internal Investigation) soon and I was wondering if this would be a good topic: determining the content of sugar in different fruits using redox titration. Specifically, glucose and fructose, as I have read that the safest fruits are those that are high in glucose and low in fructose. Do you think this would be feasible? Should I just determine glucose? Any suggestions for improvement or a completely different idea? I would like to do my project on titration specifically as our two options are titration or calorimetry and I am not very confident in the latter. Thanks!
  5. Yeah, now I'm thinking Bezier curves aren't a good idea as we won't be learning about it in class whatsoever. I do like the idea of doing calculus, the question is what about it though. I've been looking into calculus and photography, any suggestions with that would be highly appreciated. I know you're not allowed to spoon-feed me topics so anything you can do would be extremely helpful.
  6. Proposal is due in a few days. We haven't received much guidance from our teacher though and many of my classmates still haven't picked a topic yet either. I started looking as soon as we were introduced to the IA (about 2 weeks ago) but still haven't found anything I'm dead set on. Today, I've been looking into calculus and optimization. Generally, do you think something in this field could be good? Thanks again.
  7. Thanks for your reply! Honestly we haven't gotten very far into the curriculum so it's hard to say. Maybe statistics and probability, but I know many advise against doing these topics for an IA. I'm open to any topic at the moment, but I understand that doing one I'm familiar with is best. We recently started looking into calculus and I have taken an interest in that. I know calculus is involved in many different applications, but am unsure what I could specifically do with calculus concerning my interests.
  8. Hi there! I'm new to this site and am currently in SL Math. I have been trying to find a topic for my math IA for a couple of weeks now but nothing has sparked my interest. I know there's hundreds of questions like this and people often say to simply find something you're interested in, but I'm having a really hard time doing so. I'm interested in photography, but feel like a lot of the math I have seen regarding this topic (e.g. f stop sequence) is too basic. I also thought exploring a problem related to my country (Canada) could be a good idea, but haven't been able to come up with anything. I'm interested in travelling and have looked into the graph theory, coastline paradox and arc length to potentially find a way to optimize a route, but am unsure if that's feasible or relates to the SL curriculum. In addition, I am interested in design and have looked into Bezier curves and math behind Pixar animations, but also don't know if that relates to the curriculum or is feasible. If you have any ideas about a completely new topic or extending one of the things I've mentioned, please comment! I'm at a point where I'm not happy with any of my ideas so any guidance and suggestions would be very appreciated! I really would like to get a 7, but can't do so with a bad topic. Thanks in advance!
