  1. I am currently doing my economics extended essay on the following topic: How will the new steal tariffs affect the steel industry in the province of Quebec? I just need some advice on what exactly I should focus on analyzing.
  2. I need a to form a "research question" for my EE, I just don't know what kind of question. I know for my EE I want to analyze either Debussy's string quartet and Ravel's string quartet (based on debussy's) or just Debussy's alone, but how do you make a question out of that? I have something along the lines of "To what extent did Debussy's String Quartet affect the structure and content of Ravel's string quartet" or something like that but I feel like that isn't like... IB enough. Like AP focuses more on music theory specifically but Ib music focuses more on analyzing the context, style, and feeling of music rather than the technical aspects of it, and I feel like that research question doesn't encourage enough analysis of that. Any other suggestions?
  3. Hello Folks, My Research question for my social & cultural anthropology essay is How have Indian traditions & culture impacted the Jewish cultural identities & their culture in Mumbai”. As part of my primary research, i have interviewed & surveyed a head of a Jewish community center in Mumbai. I have garnered a lot of information about the history, modern day statistics, rituals, comparison between Mumbai & Jerusalem as an abode for Jews, personal experiences of Jews in India and so on. My secondary research mainly includes you-tube documentaries, a limited amount of research publications & some community forums. I am unable to deliver my essay a proper format/structure, hence this is restraining me to write. I have included the background information about Jews in Mumbai in the introduction. I need some urgent help with an appropriate format & some tips on my research work for the same. Thank You Amish Agarwal
  4. Hi guys. I have already looked through lots of ee on econs and I found out that most students did their ee on market structure, e.g. to what extent is ... operating in a perfect competition? If I were to do my ee on market structure, will it seem to be lacking originality which IB examiners are looking for?
  5. So, I am planning on doing my EE in Art and I was thinking of doing the topic "How are American and Japanese art influenced by one another and how are they different?", or something along those lines. Is this too vague? Should I specify a specific area of art? Can I even use this topic? Any feedback and suggestions would be awesome. Also, my 2,000 words checkpoint is next week and I haven't started yet, so please help ASAP!
  6. For my Art EE, I was thinking of using the question "How are American and Japanese art influenced by one another and how are they different?". Is this topic too vague? Should I specify a specific area of art? Is the topic even usable at all? Any feedback and suggestions on this topic would be great. My 2,000 word checkpoint is next week and I haven't even started so I need help ASAP!! Thanks!
  7. Hello! I'm doing my extended essay on plant growth, but I only have 3 trials from my experimenting. I was told that theres hardly any statistical analysis that i can do without more than 5 trials, aside from calculating the mean, and I have no idea where to go with my data. I was planning on a lab based EE from primary data, but I'm not sure if thats possible anymore seeing as I dont have enough trials for in depth statistical analysis. Should I run more trials, or should I change direction with my EE and use my primary data to support secondary data, turning it into a research based essay instead of experimental?? Please help!! - Thanks, Cherry
  8. So I'm in year 2 and my EE topic has failed because my supervisor kept on delaying meetings, and then said that my topic might not work, so I have to go with a Plan B topic: How heating in the brewing of coffee affects the amount of of caffeine/(some other chemical) in it. I could also look for a chemical that is harmful/beneficial. I will have a good personal engagement for this one, but I heard that topics with coffee are overdone. Is this true? Any advice? Thanks for your help?
  9. I have chosen to do my EE on maths. I need some advice on what to do, I have submitted numerous topics for all of them to get rejected. The same reason is given and it is that it is not heavily based in mathematics. If anyone could help tweak one of my topics so it would be perfect as I am struggling quite a bit and I can not get help from my advisor as it is their first year doing this because the advisor I was expecting to get stopped doing EEs. My proposals have been: Geometry behind renaissance architecture, permutation groups and diamond quality, distributions of chance in game show games, statistical analysis of the premier league and use a general rule to predict a champion. If possible I would like to do the group theory one as that has always interested me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Hi there! So we are currently on the stage of finalising what topic we want to do for our EE and I am doing mine in History, but am having some trouble choosing which one to do. I really want to get an A or B on the extended essay, so need a topic that sounds like it has a lot of good material in order for me to get a high grade So the topic I am currently interested in are: - How the African National Congress with Nelson Mandela was influenced by the Indian independence movement with Mahatma Gandhi and why peaceful protests worked in India, but not in Africa (this could possibly also explore ideas of terrorists vs freedom fighters? I'm not sure) - Princess Sophia's (From India) impact and influence on the suffragettes' movement in England - An exploration of Britain's rule on India and what kind of negative impacts that had (Maybe also explore the idea of whether or not Britain should pay reparations to India --> this idea came from the novel 'inglorious empires' by Shashi Tharoor) Any help is appreciated!! Thanks :))
  11. If I submit my first reflection after the deadline, will I lose points in the Extended Essay?
  12. I'm currently writing my Extended Essay and have a few questions about citations and footnotes. Note: my school uses MLA 7. When I use a source for the first time in an essay, must I write down the whole citation? If I then use it again later on, should I use an abbreviated version of the citation? If I have several sentences from the same source, should I put the footnote at the end of the last sentence or multiple footnotes after every sentence? Should I place my footnotes before or after a comma or full stop? Can I put more than one footnote in a sentence? Additionally, if I have multiple footnotes in a sentence, should I put them before or after punctuation? How should I reference websites in footnotes and abbreviated footnotes? If I use information that I find in a book, but it comes from a different book that the author has cited, should I write in the footnote “[A diff source] , as quoted in [my source/the book]”? In summary: what are the rules when creating footnotes and citations?
  13. I am am work on my mathematics extended essay, and I want to do it on: 1. Coming up with a general formula for the volume of the five Platonic Solids (I need to know from other mathematics higher level students if this is two simple). 2. The proof(s) for Euler's polyhedron formula. 3. The Travelling Salesman Problem (not sure how much math is involved as opposed to computer science). I am most interested in the first but willing to drop it if it is too simple. I am also open to suggestions of other interesting topics in geometry (the subject I have the most interest in). I want to get some work done before the summer break ends in about 4 weeks, so I could really use some advice (especially considering my adviser has gone incognito).
  14. Hi there, I am struggling to come up with a topic for my extended essay. I have a marine aquarium and I really wanted to do it on something relating to that. I am currently thinking that maybe a biology one about the symbiotic relationship between coral and zooxanthellae bacteria but am unsure how to word the question. Also thought maybe a world studies on chemistry and ESS about the relationship between calcium and alkalinity (they precipitate each other) and how this effects reef formations. I am open to ANY suggestions whatsoever so please don't hesitate to throw any ideas at me! thanks so much guys!
  15. Hey y'all so this is my first time posting but I have to come up with my EE topic and i'm not quite sure how to phrase it. I have a general idea of what I want to do, but I want to do it on Coral and its symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae. However im not sure what my research question should be...Any ideas? Anything would be much appreciated!!!
  16. Are there any History books that focus solely on Mao's Hundred Flowers campaign? Most of the books that I have concentrate on a huge period of China's history, but I only really need to read about this one event.
  17. Hi! Sorry for another EE help post but I really don't know what I should do next for my EE... Here's my situation. I'm currently writing my economics EE with the research question " to what extent would Quebec's dairy industry be threatened by the removal of trade protections?" and I'm still a little confused about how I should answer questions based on "to what extent." Should I be answering it with my opinion of "yes it will be threatened" or something more like "it will be threatened in/because of certain aspects"? Moreover, would this research question fall under the "research question should not be hypothetical or in the future" section under the five year rule? I just saw this but my mentor has already approved my topic? Also, I have written out all the economic theory that I plan to use in my EE, how should I write an outline? Should there be arguments for or against the RQ? I'm not really sure how I can approach it, as to me, this is very different from the other essays that we've written in English or the other classes. Sorry for the bombardment of questions and I hope that I can receive some responses!
  18. Hey. This is my first time posting, so hopefully someone can help me out here. I've just got my Extended Essay proposal back from my supervisor, and she flat out rejected it and said that I need to get something else to write about. The topic of my essay is "To what extent did aviation affect the outcome of WW2?". I would like to write about something regarding aviation and/or the second world war, but there is a lot of pre-existing research on the topic, so it's difficult to find something original to do and I also need to find something that presents an argument, which is a bit difficult because history is pretty straight-forward (to me at least). Can someone help me find something interesting to write about and make suggestions as to how to narrow down my research question and make it argumentative? Thanks in advance, --A Drooling Failure
  19. For my History Extended Essay, I use a few websites that have old constitutions of the People's Republic of China. But I have no idea how to cite them! For example: http://en.pkulaw.cn/display.aspx?cgid=52993&lib=law https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/mod/1949-ccp-program.asp Is there a proper way on how to cite them? Or should I simply cite them as websites?
  20. okay so it's the first year my school is doing IB and they've lied to my class the whole past year about what IB actually is, i really don't know much about it and what i find on internet is kinda confusing. anyways, i chose to do my EE on Language B High Level but it's been more than three months and my teachers are not helping, we don't have any idea of which topic to do so can someone recommed me titles please? i don't want to do literature but the other to options are fine for me.
  21. So I am doing my extended essay in psychology, on Alzheimer's disease and its possible treatment. My research question at the moment is: To what extent do biological and psychological factors influence the possible treatment of Alzheimer’s disease? Is it too broad, and would I be better just picking either biological or psychological factors that influence it only? Or is it better to pick one factor, say music therapy for example, and change the question to, TWE does music therapy influence the possible treatment of AD?
  22. Hello everyone, I am currently doing my EE in computer science and i just want to make sure that my chosen topic is good and i can start working on it My research question is "To what extent is the increase in processing power diminished the need for a complicated sorting algorithms in large data structures" Is the research question fine or do i change/refine it. One problem is that i found a similar question on the official IBO website. Thank you in advance
  23. So far I have begun to start my EE, and I've already got my EE research question ready (How and to what effect does Nathaniel Hawthorne use sin in The Scarlet Letter?) What would be the best way to format the body for an EE? What should I talk about when referencing the research question?
  24. Hi, so I am planning on writting my EE in Business Management and I wanted to look at how trade/labour unions impact the productivity of a determined company. I dont know if this is a good topic and I am having a little trouble finding any specific theories, etc. to use in my essay. Please if anyone can help me with that and also by giving me some pointers of how to tackle the EE I would apreciate it.
  25. Hello guys, so I am currently in year one of IB diploma and in the middle of it, I have to move away to another country. I know that it will somehow affect my study and it will be really stressful for me. I have to change two of my subjects cause the school im moving to doesnt offer the subjects. Im also stressed out because in my current school, we haven't start our EE and IAs yet but the school I am going to started theirs already. How can I be able to cope with this? How am I be able to catch up in a new environment?
