  1. Hey there, I have just met with my supervisor for the EE and he told me to fix my research question by making it clearer for the examinor to understand what I will be discussing in my essay. Here's my RQ: I tried my best to convey what I want to talk about in the essay but he told me that I need to use better words to clarify this part "work independently in their own context". I want to say that both books are meant for different audiences from different fields (one's for a poet, and the other is for the son of the writer talking about modern problems). What can I write to convey what I want to say in the clearest way possible? Thank you in advance
  2. I was wondering why their example is within their expectations , but seemingly does not fit the criteria? they state: "2(a): Essays of a sociocultural nature about the impact of a cultural change on language The essay should consist of a cultural analysis of the impact of a particular issue on the form or use of the language." example given : "The effects of globalization on language and social media in the Middle East" golablisation being a big topic affecting many countries I dont understand how it fits within their criteria A : "For category 1 (language) and category 2 (culture and society) essays, the introduction must make clear how the chosen topic is specific or of special interest to the target culture and/or language . Overly broad topics on society, social movements or general media issues should be avoided." I was hoping to write an Essay about how Climate Change changed the usage of the english language by media/Brands in England, now I am not sure if this would fail criteria A. Is that still possible or is my "particular issue" not related closely enough to British culture ?
  3. Hello everyone, I have to propose EE topics in a few different subjects in a couple of days and I'm struggling a bit. I've narrowed down my subjects to ESS, Biology and Chem, I just don't know whether the topics are too broad. I was considering writing about the following for each subject: For ESS, the effectiveness of a specific species different conversation efforts For Biology, the buildup of micro-plastics in organisms through the tropic levels (idk for sure what experiment i could do) For Chemistry, the water quality of two different bodies of water by my house and its effect on biodiversity I'm open to change, so feel free to reply with any questions, comments, or concerns, all input is appreciated!
  4. I am writing my Extended Essay trying to analyse the economic activity during Indian Demonetisation, did it serve its purpose? Because after it happened, people shifted to cashless payment, but when cash came in the economy, they quickly shifted back to cash. I wanted to analyse why did that happen, could you give me any tips? If you have any suggestions on any other way to approach the Indian Demonetisation scenario, that would be nice.
  5. My subject for the EE is chemistry, and I was wondering how far I can stretch that subject to apply to other subjects. My main idea is that I should study how cottonmouth venom is synthesized into an antivenom. The final topic is due tomorrow. However, there are a lot of problems with this topic. First of all, my TOK teacher (not my subject supervisor) told me that this topic leans too heavily into biology, but he isn’t the best resource on scientific EEs, which he admitted to me personally. Second of all, venom is a toxic chemical. Am I allowed to study this, even though I don’t plan to do am experiment myself? The subject says explicitly that toxic and dangerous chemicals are prohibited, but I’m unsure if that applies only to personally-conducted experiments, or to the topic in general. Lastly, I can’t do my own experiment in this topic, obviously. Will this cause me to lose points? These are my main problems/ questions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  6. I'm really struggling to figure out an EE topic for this subject. I wanted to do my EE on greek mythology but all the topics I come up with are too broad and I can't seem to narrow it down. Plus, I'm still a bit confused about the requirements for the EE in this subject because it's not offered at my school, I have a mentor who has taught some Greek but they aren't really around much. I'm worried that I might do the EE entirely wrong and I'm still not entirely sure if i needed to know greek or latin in order to actually do this subject. I just really need some help in narrowing it down and if anyone did this subject for their EEs (probably not but worth a shot) advice would be appreciated Heres the syllabus for the EE http://schools.cbe.ab.ca/b865/media/extendedessay09/09ClassicalGreekandLatin.htm
  7. Hey all, just hoping to get some help regarding my extended essay topic. I'm currently doing my extended essay research question on To What Extent Did the American Red Cross Impact World War One Europe? I've been ok-ed by my teachers for this topic and have been chugging along. I just got my hands on the extended essay guide course companion book and read through some parts, and looked around online for additional information. My problem is I'm starting to think my topic can't really be looked at from other angles. All my research blatantly shows they had a large impact, how would I argue against that or view it from another angle? I was thinking about maybe writing something about how they compared to other humanitarian aid organizations in that area, maybe find some information on how they did stacked up to others? I'm really not sure so I'm hoping some smart people here can give me some guidance. If possible I'd rather not overhaul my EE topic to something super different as I've already sunk 10 hours into this, and don't want it to be for nothing. Thanks!
  8. Alguien habla español? Alguien que haya tomado Español Literatura? Que libros están leyendo? Alguien haciendo su Extended Essay en español?
  9. Hey I am from India and I am doing Extended Essay in Hindi and I am stuck up with what topic should I take and how to take a topic and how to go on with it. I have taken help from my teacher but he has just given the broader topic like language, literature and culture-society but I need a more focused topic to frame my research question. So can anyone please guide me through the topics Thank you
  10. Here is my Chemistry EE Topic and Question that I have developed: Topic: "A comparison of NaOH and CaO as alkaline catalysts in the transesterification reaction of Vegetable Oil to Bio diesel based on Green Chemistry Principles" RQ: “How would NaOH and CaO compare as alkaline based catalysts in a green synthesis of bio diesel from the transesterification of Vegetable Oil?" Independent Variable/s: Type of Catalyst - Homogeneous (NaOH) and Heterogeneous (CaO) [amount and concentration are control] Dependent Variables: Rate of Reaction Yield of bio-diesel Produced (might replace this with something else since yield is not affected by the catalyst; suggestions?) Amount of dissolved catalyst in produced bio-diesel (it affects the performance of the fuel) Thoughts? Questions? Comments? Concerns? I'd appreciate some constructive criticism with anything on this post. I'm trying to get a solid grasp of my topic at this time so anything helps! Please point out the uncertainties and invalidities and I'll be thankful.
  11. I am thinking of writing an essay about Scarlet Witch (Wanda) in Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am considering if I should write about the symbolism and social issues surrounding the character or the importance of this character and future prospects of the character. Also, I am wondering if I should put it as a Film paper or a Literature paper. Please help me out.
  12. I was talking to some of my friends and I told them that my EE was of probability. To be more precise it is of probability on a casino game named craps. My idea was to make an analysis on how the casino always has more chances of winning than the player. My concern is that they told me that this topic is not going to get me a good grade. What do you think?
  13. Hey, Im currently in Grade 11 and we've just been introduced to our EE and I've decided I wanted to do mine in Economics even though humanities essays are considered more difficult. I need to make a proposal to my economics teacher by this week since he's very sought after and teaches two subjects so if anyone could let me know whether my idea is suitable it would be much appreciated. Basically, in my essay I wanted to talk about Brexit and the fall of the pound as a result of this and I wanted to link it to either Income of British expats in Abu Dhabi (local context) however i thought that this might've been too specific even though its easy to get primary data on since I'm exposed to many professional British Nationals. I could talk about sending money back home and for retirement accounts and how the fall of the pound effects this. My other idea was how the fall of the pound effects the tourism industry in Abu Dhabi since a lot of British citizens come visit Abu Dhabi, however I thought for the secondary data it would be very hard to isolate just British citizens. In this option, I could talk about how British nationals spend more since the weak pound give them the luxury to do so but again I thought this might seem to be too weak of a link and be considered a stretch by the IB. My general layout for the EE would be first talking about the economic theory of exchange rate and purchasing power parity and then Brexit and talk about how mainly that and other factors contributed to the depreciation of the exchange rate of the pound. Then from there I would either talk about the tourism industry or the effects on income of British Expats. BTW, sorry this is a really rough overview since we only got introduced to the EE two days ago but i believe my econ teacher will be very helpful and i need him as my supervisor as soon as possible. Please let me know if you think this would be appropriate for an EE or if you have any other ideas about what I could link the fall of the pound to. Thanks in Advance !!
  14. Want to share the title of your extended essay? Or perhaps need help choosing one? This is the place. Psychology - The Psychology of Road Rage: A discussion of psychological explanations of road rage and policy implications.
  15.

  16. I need help i decided to write my ee in spanish and i will also be the first one to write it in another language too. i need help with extended essay questions in spanish. some examples plss
  17. Hello, I need help deciding what topics to pursue. The topic I really want to do is how do the different isomers of butanol affect the yield of carboxylic acid in primary alcohol oxidation. I am planning to do some reflux experiments with this. Unfortunately, I thought this topic was well researched but it seems perhaps the mechanism has ok research but not the compound. So I am having research problems, but I can probably generate more theory since I essentially will talk about elements of molecular geometry that affect its oxidation. I have abundant ideas of further research topics for this if I down this route (ex. what if I use phenol or what if its the same formula but different pattern of bonds?). Currently, the research I have may suffice, but I will have to piece the research together (for example I have research talking about butanol as a compound, then combustion data..etc) to develop it to be adequate. The other topic I feel uncomfortable with, but A LOT of research is written about it. It involves seeing the efficiency of hydrogen production when using a strong base or strong acid. If I go down this route, I will be conducting experiments of electrolysis. I have found abundant research for base electrolytes, but it feels kind of answered and I just have a faint idea of how I am going to discuss this in theory. I would love to hear your opinions and thanks too!
  18. Hi! I just wanted to know if I could do my CS EE on random number generators. The basic idea is that I will code a two random number generators in different computer languages (Java and C++) and then compare the two. My CS teacher has no idea what number generators are and blatantly said yes... So do you guys think this topic is good for CS? Thanks guys! Appreciate it!
  19. I'm doing a bio ee and I gathered and processed all the data but I'm facing a dilemma, what should I do if there is no correlation/relationship between the independent variable and the dependent variable? I'm really scared that I'm going to fail, I'm hoping to get a B but I'd be happy with a C... Can someone that has experienced this give me some advice?? should I fake the data or should I explain why there's no correlation?
  20. Hello, my name is Martina and I really need someone to help me with the EE, since my supervisor is avoiding me. The subject I chose for the EE is biology. I'd like to come up with an experiment that would allow me to talk about human physiology, but without involving people. (i did the same for the IAs in bio and chem by using enzymes and antacids) I'm now thinking about using visking tubes for my experiment. They could represent either the gut or the dialysis machine. I suppose that I cannot use them as a gut model since I'm already talking about the digestive system in the abovementioned IAs. So my question is: How can I carry on an experiment on dialysis with visking tube? I could possibly use the substances that are present in the dialysis fluid (like sodium, potassium, calcium etc) and showing their diffusion through the tube as in the machine, but I wouldn't have variables. Do you guys have any ideas? I'd really appreciate your help, I'm really struggling
  21. 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

    BM EE Help

    Hey! I'm starting my EE research. My topic is about the acquisition of Flipkart. For the EE, is there any analytical tool that is suitable for analyzing the acquisition? Besides SWOT Analysis, any tool suggestions are welcome (both within and beyond the scope of the syllabus). Thanks:)
  25. Hello everyone, For my EE, I have decided to make it over the Nuremberg Trials and in History/Group 3, since I love learning about history and have am interested in law as well. My current research question is as follows: "To what extent were the Nuremberg Trials hampered by tensions between the Soviet judges and Western ones?" Basically, I wanted to analyze how the beginnings of Cold War tensions and oddities of the trials, such as how the Soviets themselves participated in the invasion of Poland, may have hindered the proceedings of the trials through the relations between the Soviet prosecutors and judges and those from the US, UK, and France. I am still in the process of researching, but for a vague idea for my argument, I would analyze the differences between the legal practices of the USSR and the West, which were pretty different, and events during the trial such as the Soviet judge "discussing" the invasion of Poland as a German indictment when they participated as well, and how this affected the trials and the audience. I would look at sources from both sides My questions are: Is my question appropriate for the EE? Is it too narrow or not narrow enough, and would I need to reword it? And would my argument be reasonable? (I pulled these questions off of the IB Survival EE Guide). Thanks!
