  1. Hi! I am doing my EE in languages and literature. My research question so far is; How does rupi kaur discuss sexual assault and the female voice through poetry in her works; milk and honey, and the sun and her flowers? I wanted to write an extended essay surrounding poetry that dealt with sexual assault and the female voice (don't really know how to put it, but I mean how woman are portrayed through the media etc) through a feministic eye. Rupi Kaur is very modern and I thought she would be interesting to look at since her work has gotten a lot of attention and I watched her Ted talk and it was amazing. I'm having such a hard time getting started and I've been trying for weeks. Idk if I should choose someone to compare her work to but my advisor told me I could just focus on her if I wanted to, will that score well? I've tried doing an outline and have read many articles about the metoo movement and the portrayal of woman as objects in media. Im having such a hard time and need help!!!! Sincerely, a stressed out IB girl
  2. I basically want to know if it is okay to research body temperature as the measuring includes putting the thermometer inside of one's ear. I looked at the EE guide for biology, but all I could manage to find was "inflict pain on, or cause unnecessary stress to, living organisms are not appropriate for submission. Investigations that are likely to have a harmful effect on health" My personal thought is that it must be okay as there is a guy in my class measuring vital capacity, which also touches a body entry, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. I'm not sure about the research question yet, although im thinking something in the line of " does eating a proportional amount of calories have a different effect on body temperature in males and females aged 18+- 1 year?" Any help or thoughts are welcome!
  3. 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).
  4. Does anyone know the creators and origins of these two cartoons about Mao's 'Hundred Flowers' Campaign? I can't find any websites that have them but that also mention the name of the cartoonists and when they were created.
  5. Hey, I need help finding a research question for my Global Politics Extended Essay. I want to write about 9/11 but I have no Idea of what to write about or what to do. My supervisor is new to IB and doesn't know anything about the program or anything and I'm starting to get really worried. I just need help finding or a little guidance to find a narrow research question related to 9/11, please.
  6. Hi so I have decided to write my extended essay on the world studies topic of Chinese traditional medicine. However now that I have chosen this topic, I am not sure where to go next. I wanted my research question to be something a long the lines of "to what extent is chinese traditional medicine effective...". I wanted to answer this by comparing the treatment and its results for chinese traditional medicine with those of western medicine for a particular disease, however I am finding the research for a particular disease to be quite hard. Do you think I should continue to research for a disease or should I scrap that idea and write the essay to be more along the lines of the history and concepts behind chinese traditional medicine and how it came to be? or is that to broad and generic? I am really lost so if anyone has written their ee on chinese medicine, can you send let me know what you wrote yours about? Also if anyone knows any good sources regarding chinese medicine and/or alternate medicine, please inform me! Thanks
  7. Hi everyone, I'm going to start my first year of IB in the fall, and something that has confused me is the Extended Essay. What can I write about and what's off-limits? I know that you have to pick a topic that relates to the subjects that you take in IB, but can you write about a topic that relates to a subject that you aren't taking? The classes that I will be taking are: Math SL Biology SL Spanish B SL History of Americas HL Visual Arts HL English Literature A HL Thank you!!! 😁
  8. I wanted to ask whether this topic would be suitable for an extended essay in chemistry. It involves comparing the effectiveness of different (or components in them) of physical and chemical sunscreens. In order to do so, I can either find out the effect they have on the voltage output of a DSSC, or I was thinking of using spectrophotometry. So is this idea okay? The topic is finalized, but just finding the exact research question/aim was difficult. Any help is appreciated as my supervisor doesn't reply to emails and we currently have holidays for a few weeks.
  9. Would it be okay to write my history EE on comic books? like, I want to compare the use of comic books as propaganda in different wars. how could I make a research question out of this?
  10. How many sources should you have for a History Extended Essay? How many different factors or reasons should you cover?
  11. 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.
  12. I read the guide and I think my topic fits into: aspects of the current computer science syllabus that are taken to a far greater depth than that provided in the course but do I have to do an "experiment" and report my findings as I have read in a website? http://ib.compscihub.net/ee "Computer Science is counted as an experimental science by the IB and thus requires you to do some kind of experiment in the realm of computer science and then report your findings." ---- Because I'm not doing any "experiments", I'm just doing research ---- My RQ is "How reliable is straightforward RSA to send data over the internet" I chose straightforward RSA since it has more vulnerabilities and I thought I could explain away more stuff vs RSA or is that a bad idea?
  13. Hey all, I was thinking that my World Studies EE Research Question is too broad and I am having problems narrowing it down. My EE supervisor says that a broad RQ is fine for a world studies EE but when I look it up online it says that the research question has to be focused. I am extremely confused right now. My RQ is- To what extent has the migration of unskilled workers into Dubai, UAE affected its economic performance and how has this affected the migrants themselves? So, this RQ has two parts. The first is focused on economic impacts and the second is focused on personal psychological consequences of migration. Any advice would be appreciated.
  14. Hi all! I am a 11th grader and a Math HL student. I have chosen to model traffic flow using cellular automaton as the topic of my Math EE. However I am not sure how deep can I go and whether my topic is advanced enough to become an EE topic (my school's Math group teachers allowed me to do this topic, but I would like more opinions), because I still have a lot of things to learn about it. What's more, I have looked through some related essays, but I did not find many proves of mathematical theories. Most of them contain mainly words and graphs of cellular automaton, so I am not sure whether my topic contains enough mathematics theories and proves to write a Math EE. By the way, my supervisor said that since there are already such models, I can improve upon them by adding more considerations. But I am not sure how complex should the model be in order to be advanced enough and meanwhile allow me to handle the model well. (Sorry, English is not my first language. My language may not be used properly, so there may be some confusions in my description) Thanks for your help!
  15. Long story short, I did a bio extended essay, messed up the experiment, instead of isolated colonies I got a single weird blob. No data collected. Failed the experiment. Am I allowed to use external data to support my arguments?
  16. Hello, I'm kinda freaking out as I am a perfectionist who wishes to find the best way to organize my way through IB (I'm starting it in August). My HL's (Math, Physics, Psych) and my SL's (Lang & Lit, Mandarin, Econ). What supplies should I buy to best prepare for these such as binders and notebooks. (I'm already buying an accordion folder btw) Also advice for any of these topics is very much appreciated. (ex. homework load, amount of worksheets handed out, how hard the class is in general) + general tips on CAS and my EE would be amazing Thanks in advance !
  17. Hello! I have to have my English EE book choice in on Monday, and my choices have mostly been shot down by my school. My number one choice is Stephen King's The Gunslinger but my teachers have said that since he's a "pop culture" writer, IB will frown upon it. They're adamant that I choose a winner or finalist for the Man Booker Prize, but none of the books that have won really seem to interest me. My favorite genre is fantasy, but I also enjoy sci-fi (The Island of Dr. Moreau?), (some) historical fiction, and adventure. If you have any advice on whether The Gunslinger will work or if you know of any other books I could use, that'd be great! Thanks!
  18. I have a topic idea, but am seeking advice as well as help forming a question. I plan on researching the effect bilingual education (second language acquisition?) has on childhood development within psychology. I plan to look specifically on education and brain development. First off, does that seem like a possible topic? I've never taken a psychology class, and my school does not offer DP psych. Any advice on how to approach it in a psychology standpoint would be very appreciated! Secondly, I need help refining a question. I think I will word it as: To what extent does second language acquisition affect childhood development? or something like that. I'm having trouble coming up with question starters other than "what" or "to what extent". Again, any advice is appreciated! Thanks!!
  19. So I started off with choosing The Civil Rights Movement as my topic for the Extended Essay but then I was told not to pick a topic that's so common, because the markers usually get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. And also, if you're going to do a topic that's so well known, it has to be exceptional. So I was hoping if you guys could please put some suggestions that I could focus on that has a sufficient information for me to able to conduct the essay. Thank you! x
  20. Hi guys! I’m choosing the topic of my English B EE topic. Most of the topics I’ve seen in the internet are related to the books but I was wondering if I could do it on more “social” topic like for example how does the development of the internet affects sth?
  21. Hi. I've decided to do my EE in English, focusing on Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I'm not getting any good advice from my supervisor, and the internet isn't really helping me. I've gone through a lot of book changes prior to this, more specifically dystopian and feminist books. However, I've read that these are really overused topics, so I wanted to try to think out of the box. I decided to choose Percy Jackson because I think that there is a lot of content I can analyze for my 4,000 words. It's okay to choose a relatively 'easy' book for EE, right? Right now, I need help on choosing a topic and formulating a good research question. Honestly, I'm stuck at choosing which topic I should focus on. I'm scared if the topics I have in mind will be good enough for an EE. I would really appreciate feedback on the topics, and the research questions that come along with them. Here's what I have so far. 1. The Portrayal of Greek Mythology in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray classic characters from ancient Greek mythology in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief? : Classic vs revised character traits of the Greek gods How does Riordan associate ancient Greek mythology with modern literature in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Plots of the original Greek myths affected by modern technology, environment, characteristics of the Greek gods, etc. 2. Family Roles in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray family roles in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Nature of family, duties and responsibilities of a parent and a child; how gods neglect their roles as parents, and how their demigod children are expected to do more 3. Coming of Age in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray the coming of age in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: How internal conflicts faced by the character is portrayed in the form of monsters and evil villains 4. The Hero Concept in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan define the meaning of a hero in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Characteristics of a hero; analysing different characters and how they are considered heroes
  22. I’m doing my Extended Essay on the effects on the city’s tourism of a music festival and all the smaller events it sponsors. I’m planning to mention how it gathers people and activates different economic areas, so it triggers economic growth in the region. My question would be ‘To what extent is the music festival effective at increasing tourism in the city?’ or something along those lines. Though I think it’s too broad and should be specified more. I appreciate any tips on how to make it more narrow or maybe approach the question in a different manner! Thanks.

    IB Bio EE

    Hi all! I am in the process of deciding an EE topic. I have come up with a possible topic but upon discussing with my teacher she has told me that it does not have enough depth for IB diploma and lacks a biochemistry angle. My proposed topic is: The regeneration of Planaria Researching whether freshwater Planarian (flatworms) reproduce asexually by regeneration and what factors affect its ability to regenerate. Essentially, Planarians possess neoblasts (pluripotent adult stem cells) which have the ability to transform into a huge range of cells that are able to maintain and regenerate. I will be cutting planarian into segments, ranging in size. I will also research some other factors that may affect its ability to regenerate and incorporate those factors into my experiment. There is a lot missing from this and I am hoping to research and develop this more, but for now, I am stuck. My question is, how can I make this experiment more "IB-like?" and does there need to be biochemistry involved in these topics? Or is it because my teacher prefers us to focus on biochemistry because it is all we have learnt in IB Bio so far?
  24. Hi, I am in dire need of help with selecting my math ee topic. I currently have in mind brachistochrone curves, but I can't think of a suitable RQ.
  25. Geometrical designs used by architects in different places of the world. Math is a tool through which beauty can be calculated using ratios and therefore architects use geometry and many other mathematical concepts to build buildings. Some concepts to explore are geometric proofs, constructions, the Golden Ratio, and the Fibonacci Series.
