  1. Hi, I am looking for advice on my physics IA ASAP. I want to experiment with rubber bands and hysterisis. Would it be an acceptable IA to test hysterisis in a rubber band by adding and removing weights?
  2. Hello! I am a French student doing the IB and I am doing a survey to complete my math studies IA. I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to answer my survey. https://goo.gl/forms/KIMSFSzwaWuudcPz2 Thank you, Thibault
  3. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1KKZMguXKnIiGoeYc5XJfzZ9285sJzC5HoG6NWV9ocyI/edit HI everyone! I'm currently working on my math studies IA and I would really appreciate it if you guys could answer a couple of questions for the data collection! Thank you!!! (it's in both english and french)

    BM IA

    So basically I don't understand anything in bm ia. I am gonna do it on a salon and the problems they are facing is of staff leaving so should I pose that as my RQ or focus on customers and what type of services or what should their approach be for maximized customer satisfaction?
  5. Hello, I'm in the first year of the IB and am writing my maths IA. As we aren't going to learn about complex numbers until much later I was allowed to write my IA about them even though they are in the course. I would like to include applications or uses of complex numbers, for example, Euler's Formula, fractals, De Moivre's Theorem or possibly some other applications (I have yet to do more research). My problem is that in order for the essay to be understandable to my target audience ie. my classmates who have not learned about complex numbers yet, I will have to include addition, multiplication, division of complex numbers as well and I'm worried that it will just look as if it had been taken straight from a textbook. Additionally although I am very interested in the topic I don't quite now how to display sufficient "personal engagement". Could anyone advise me on how to proceed with this project?
  6. I'm doing my IA on how changes in mass alter the rate at which a pendulum decelerates because of inertia and i have my data and stuff i just realized that i don't know this topic too well and its too late to change. also i'm not sure what exactly this should look like format wise. please help.

    math sl ia help

    i want to do my math sl ia on Zeno's paradox Achillies and the turtle. I need help on how to actually approach this
  8. Im literally so stressed right now, I have so much to do and all ive been doing is procastinate and not make proper use of the time I actually spend working. I work on something and go off topic quickly. I have an ITGS client that may or may not bail on me and I have to submite my product next week. I've not yet began filming and they are going out of the country for two weeks. Incase they do bail on me I need a backup plan. How do you fake an itgs ia? What are projects that I can do on my own and act as my own client?
  9. For my IA, I found a Website that I wanted to cite from Sony. I couldn't find an author so how should I cite it? Do I use the corporation's name as the author's name? Link: https://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/CorporateInfo/History/sonyhistory-c.html
  10. For my history IA, I initially thought of the question "What factors lead to the economic recovery of Japan after MacArthur's occupation?". My teacher said it was good so I found many sources but I found out that almost all the sources available about Japan after WWII doesn't touch the economy, but almost all of them talk about the technological advancements of Japan after WWII. Right now, I'm on my winter break and I can't contact my teacher. So I was wondering, will it be an okay topic if I change "economic recovery" to "technological advancements" in my topic question? Just a quick note: If my topic question doesn't sound right, that's because I'm writing my IA in french and I just merely translated my topic.
  11. hey guys, is it a good idea for me to do the laplace transform for my Math HL IA? I'll base it on simple harmonic motion of bungee jumping, and I need your feedbacks whether this is a good topic or not. There will be some out of the syllabus stuff, but it involves integration by parts, algebra and some basic stuff. I'm displaying the concept in an amateur way. Thoughts?
  12. Hello, I have been really struggling to find an IA topic I am in math sl . My teacher tries to be helpful but he is an extremely busy man, I really want to do something on Sundials such as how sundials are made, I just don't know if this is a good IA topic I am very lost I know I want to do something with sundials but don't know exactly what. Maybe I could do something with the equation of time?
  13. Hi, I'm a HL student about to start second year. I am doing my IA on "To what extent was nationalism contribute to North Vietnamese Victory". Where would the best place to start be? Do you recommend going through texts and trying to find references to nationalism or what? Any feedback on IAs in general or my topic would be amazing
  14. Hey! My biology IA is predicted at a high 4 low 5, I am trying to get a 6. However, If I keep a 5, will I still be able to get a 6 overall if I do well in my exams? And how much is the IA weighted in contrast to the exams?
  15. Hi I am not sure whether the topic of I want of to choose is appropriate for my IA. I was thinking of comparing the quality of apple fruits from mechanically thinned plants vs fruits not interrupted by thinning in their growth (my grandma has an apple orchard). Even though my teacher accepted the topic I have an impression she is not very familiar with this process and I am not sure whether it is not too simple. Thinning of the plants is a common way in gardening of improving plants' quality and increasing their development efficiency. Therefore, isn't it too obvious? I could explore the extent to which it does influence the quality of a fruit.. But I'm still not sure. I'd be very thankful for your opinions!
  16. I am a year 1 student and just covered 4 chapters in the book, but my teacher told us to do our IA already without telling us how to do it. So I just did my presentation before winter break about the Fibonacci Sequence and the teacher told me to change it since it's overdone. However, since we haven't covered much I was worried about my current level and what I can do for IA. Is there any Math IA topics to avoid other than the Golden Ratio? I was thinking of investigating the math in Islamic art because I am interested in photography and art. The other topic I'm contemplating is math in bridge building. Thank you!
  17. At the end of this year our teacher introduced IA to us and we had to start exploring the topics that we are interested in. As I am planning on pursuing biomedical engineering, I wanted to apply math into our body. Therefore, I liked the idea of math in biorhythms. The plan is I will convert the sine curves of the biorhythms for 3 strands (intellectual, emotional and physical) into co secant curve and then apply integral calculus to find the area under the graphs. But then I dont know if thats enough for HL Math IA requirements. I WOULD BE VERY THNAKFUL IF YOU GUYS COULD HELP ME OUT WITH THIS. Plus does anyone know how to create a biorhythm by hand??
  18. I am doing my History IA and I can't find any samples for the new format. I'm having trouble writing my IA because although I understand what the IB wants in terms of 'sections' (identification and evaluation of sources, Investigation and Reflection) I don't understand if I have to divide my IA in those specific sections or if it's something that my IA must have, even if it's not divided. If anyone has a good example of this new format I would really appreciate it!
  19. For the Math Studies IA the student is to pick 2 variables they believe are related to each other in some way and test this using statistical analysis calculations. You can literally pick any two variables. I for example chose how many hours people play video games on average per week and the amount of words they could remember in a 1 minute interval. You want this to flow like a story, no one wants to grade something where you just throw numbers at them. Explain what they mean. Explain why you did this (I don't care if it's simply saying you simplified a fraction, do it). I'm not saying the graders suck at math, I'm saying that you don't know who's getting it so assume your grader is an idiot. Here are the criterion and for each one I'm only going to post the most points possible because you want a 7... Criterion A: Introduction 2 The student produces a title, a clear statement of the task and a clear description of the plan. - Don't make a dumb title. Make it relate to your investigation. I should be able to read your title and know 3 things. Both of your variables and your guess on if they are related or not (gives drama to a math IA sort of...on a nerdy level). - Your statement. It should be explicit. It should be clear. It should outline what you are going to do with the 200 numbers you a likely to collect. I should now know 4 things. Both of your variables, a small prediction, and the math you plan to do to it. - Now to make the grader happy (happy grader=happier grading, yes it's bias but you might as well use it for your advantage ). Make an introduction. Make it like a story. Maybe there is a reason you chose these variables? Are you interested in something about them? If they are related to sports for example, did you pick them because you love that sport? Explain these things. Also you can give a brief explanation of WHY you think they should be related. You're testing this after all, always fun to start with a guess and be proved wrong Criterion B: Information/measurement 3 The relevant information collected, or set of measurements generated by the student, is organized in a form appropriate for analysis and is sufficient in both quality and quantity. - Alright, quantity. It's vague I know. Let me say this. Chi Squared test=100 data points. Just go get 100 sets of data and you're set. - Put it in a chart for the love of god. A nice columned chart (if you are doing Pearson's/Linear Line of Regression you may also include the xy, x2, y2 and the averages/totals you will need later) - Relevant information...if you stated your variable was flight distance, don't collect how far the car traveled... Criterion C: Mathematical Processes 5 The student accurately carries out a number of relevant sophisticated processes. - Simple and EASY 5 points. Do at least 2 calculations, do 3 even! Chi-Squared, Pearson's, Linear Regression Line. If you know how to do those 3 and do them correctly, perfectly, you just got yourself a free 5 points! DO IT Criterion Interpretation of results 3 The student produces a comprehensive discussion of interpretations and conclusions that are consistent with the mathematical processes used. - Don't be dumb. If your Chi-Squared value was way under your critical value, don't say your original hypothesis was right...because it wasn't. - Draw conclusions using ALL the calculations you did. Maybe your chi-squared value says they have no relationship but just barely (just slightly below your critical value, very slightly) but your Pearson's value says there is absolutely no correlation between the points (this is a value between -0.3 and 0.3) - Explain your interpretation. Some people may think that a correlation coefficient of 0.6 is pretty good but other's might think it's terrible. Relate the value to what you collected (this is why it says discuss), are there reasons that your value could be lower than what it should be? You can discuss (if this happens, I don't know if it's even possible) why your correlation coefficient suggests a decent relationship but your chi-squared test says there is none. Which one do you trust more? Etc... - This is where math meets practicality. Be practical. Take the conclusion out of the number world and into the real world. Criterion E: Validity 2 The student has made a serious attempt to comment on both the mathematical processes used and the interpretations/conclusions made. - Why you used the math you did. How valid are the results from the math? did you do it by hand? Did you do it by a calculator? Did you do both to double check your work? Explain what you did to ensure that your math is perfect. Criterion F: Structure and Communication 3 The student has produced a project that is well structured and communicated in a coherent manner. - STORY. This needs to flow. I know it sounds weird, stories in a math class, but you can make a coherent IA. You did it for your group4 IA after all - This is grading you on how you connected the math to the real world and how you communicated the numbers but as words and sentences. Criterion G: Commitment 2 The student showed full commitment. - How do you get these 2 points? Make an IA that LOOKS like it took more than 2 hours to make (you could BS data and do this in 2 hours, but you didn't, did you?). Things that show this are the collecting of 100 data points. Taking the time to make the story flow. Adding in background information in the introduction. Spell/grammar check the dang thing. If there are errors you obviously weren't committed enough to proofread... If you have more questions or still don't understand something related to the IA itself feel free to ask. Any specific math questions (questions regarding Criterion C and involve numbers) should be asked in the Math Help Thread Edit: I've continued to get messages regarding personal cases and, as much as I'd like to help, I do not check back here often. That being said - Send me a message with the understanding that you can't rely on my reply. Apologies.
  20. Hey! I am writing my first article for IA from Microeconomics. I know that I have to focus on this particular unit (not brining up other topic from our syllabus). I am not sure whether what I want to describe is clearly a micro-case. It's an article about imposition of minimum wage in Ontario, the potential effect of which would be job losses. As the topic is a microeconomic one, I'm not sure whether the solution that I aim to propose is (unemployment is a part of MACROeconomy in the syllabus). I was thinking about offering subsidies to firms to increase the production and therefore, the demand for workers? But I'm not sure. Thanks for your opinions
  21. I am currently choosing a question for my history IA, but I'm not sure if I can use a "Compare and Contrast" question.. Can I use it as my research question for my IA? Thank you!
  22. Hey, I need to collect data of many students for my Maths IA and would be really glad if some people could quickly fill it out. It's completely anonymous and only takes around 1 minute to complete:) https://goo.gl/forms/D5HvaJpxtSFxZdgt1
  23. IA rough drafts are due within the next few days, so, being the procrastinator I am, I just started my rough draft this past week. This is my first time writing an IA and my first time writing a math Paper. My paper is over the probabilities of different autoimmune diseases and evaluating a possible connection between autoimmune diseases (if you have 1, are you more likely to have another?). I am in severe need of assistance, so here is my intro: "While considering my own interests and experiences I realized the probabilities of my own life and conditions. I have an number of autoimmune diseases: type 1 diabetes, Celiac Disease, and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. There is no one I have met who has these three diseases, as I do, so I began to wonder what the probability of possessing them is and if, perhaps, having one autoimmune disease makes an individual more susceptible to another." Any advice is appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  24. Im planning on doing either effects of different glucouse concentration on cellular respiration (CO2 production), or effects of different substrates on cellular respiration (CO2 production) using glucose maltose fructose sucrose. I will be using yeast to create the CO2. Teacher wants me to branch this idea and take it to a more unique level. My questions: 1. I know that this is probably overdone, but I am struggling due to lack of creativity to vary this simple (?) experiment procedure and make it unique enough for the reader. 2. Is it acceptable to state that my curiosity came from learning the cellular respiration concept in-class and wanting to apply and see the concept at play in a real world application Not asking for someone else to come up with something necessarily, but just really struggling so any suggestions will be valuable to me. Thanks a lot!
  25. Hi guys, So my friend is deciding to replicate an old IB math exploration. I was against it but she said it wouldn't matter. The old ib exploration scored a high grade and it was on motion. She's gonna do motion too in another sport similar to the previous one with her own data though. Same format and general ideas and calculations throughout but again, her own data. Would this count as plagiarism? Also, the old IA didn't get sampled. It got 20/20 in 2014. Would this be detected on turnitin? Basically it's a complete replication of what was found in the IA using different numbers and different wording, just the same format and order and ideas.
