  1. Hi all, i am just finishing off my business and management EE, and I was wondering if it was appropriate to add images into the EE rather than going into depth explaining a physical description of products, so I have more words to analyse. Any advice welcome!
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everyone, i am scary close to the deadline of my EE, and my supervisor says my EE is too descriptive. Does anyone have experience with a business and management EE that can help me with the structure and type of analysis required?
  4. So I have been thinking on doing my EE on Orwell's literature, more specifically a comparison of the representation and pillars of authoritarian regimes in his work (1984 and Animal Farm). I have not yet made a research question, so Id like to know if, first of all its a good idea to do my EE on this and what RQ should I use.
  5. Hi! I want to do my extended essay on proving Newton's law of cooling. I want to use different liquids and do an experiment in order to compare what the law says to the real life situation. I'm on Math HL and Physics SL and I'm not quite sure where this ee could fit. My preference is math, but I'm afraid that maybe it's too experimental. What do you think? Thank you!
  6. I am currently wirting my extended essay and am currently about half way through but realized that my question is too broad and not specific enough. the question is: To what extent did the Mexican muralist movement of the 1920s go on to influence the Social Realism movement of the 1930s? I don't know if I should focus more on the mexican muralist movement instead to be more specific, but don't know how to phrase a question for this topic. Could someone help me?????????????? Thank yhou!!! All help is appreciated!!
  7. I was thinking about doing my EE in HL maths and found some interesting topics like Rubik's cube permutations, golden ratio and beauty, what 'e' is, what 'π' is, and so on. One of my hobbies is coding (I also do HL computer science and know python), and on one website, someone said that you could involve coding in your EE. How exactly is this done? Has anyone done this before? Thanks, help is always appreciated!
  8. For those who have done an EE in CS, how hard was it? And how do you collect data if you need to? Do you mainly use secondary data for the essay?
  9. Currently, I am a bit confused. Looking over the extended essay May 2018 guide I see that the title of the essay cannot be stated in the form of a question (I take that to mean that it also cannot be the research question itself). However, in the mathematics section of the guide it says that "In mathematics, the title of the essay must be in the form of a question" (taken directly from the guide). Then, they proceed to give an example of an essay title when describing how you must explain the title early on, but the example they give is not in the form of a question (they give the example "Methods for approximating Π throughout history"). So, that begs the question, should the title of my maths EE be my research question itself, or just a regular title (a statement)?
  10. I would like to know the requried amount of short stories minimum needed to complete an EE in literature.
  11. Hello all! My extended essay is due Sunday. I am doing one in maths, and I have spent quite a lot of time on formatting. However, I just reviewed the IB Extended Essay Guide for May 2018 exams, and apparently double spacing is required in the formatting. If I do this, then my entire formatting system will be messed up and it will look weird (I currently have it set to 1.5). Is this requirement wavered for math papers? How much will I be marked down if I keep it at 1.5 spacing even if making it double spaced would make the formatting look worse in general? Also, as a side-note, how does the electronic turn-in detect when the 4000 word limit has been reached? Does it know when there is a parenthetical citation and to exclude that? Thank you!
  12. Hi all! I'm planning to write my EE in physics but I don't really have a clear idea of how to work with the topic I'd like to cover. My teacher will only be taking 2 students & there are more than that planning to write theirs in physics so I'm kinda in competition with them to find stuff out ^^" SO if any of you guys have some suggestions go ahead & let me know! I'd like to work on something related to prosthetics seeing as I'd like to go into medical engineering sometime later on so any ideas in relation to that topic would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
  13. Hello everyone, I'm currently doing my psychology EE and I am investigating to what extend personality influences academic success. A counter argument that i am writing about is intelligence influencing academic success. Is it considered not answering the question? If anyone would like to give me advices on what i should include i would be glad. Thank u
  14. Hi! I'm not really sure about what the EE reflection is, how it's done and when to submit it. My school told me to create a "reflection space" to write about my thoughts during the EE writing process, but I don't really know if it is useful or just a waste of time. Will this be submitted? Or do I have to fill in a document summarizing the thoughts I wrote on the reflection space and send it with my EE to be graded? I'm so confused.
  15. Hey, My RQ is How significant was religion as a factor in the formation of the Taliban. My supervisor isn't helpful at all. I wrote 3500 words and she said that it's too narrative and I completely agree with that. I can't find helpful primary and secondary sources. How do I make my EE more analytical? Should I change my topic completely?
  16. Hi All, I'm being cheeky and copying in my post in the EE forum as I think it might have a better chance here So I have been researching a lot about what book/s I should do for my EE. One of the aspects of literature that really interests me is the use of magical realism and mysticism in modern literature. I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers around the following topics - I know the research questions aren't too well formulated but my supervisor should be able to help with that, she just doesn't know much about any of the books or topics I want to write about at this point. - How does Tony Morrison use mystical elements in Beloved to portray the psychological impact of slavery? - How are mystical elements employed in Zadie Smith's 'White Teeth' and Haruki Murakami's 'Kafka On The Shore'? (or maybe The Wind Up Bird Chronicle) - Possibly some kind of comparison of Zadie Smith's 'On Beauty' and E.M. Forsters 'Howard's End' as the former is based on the latter, however I don't really know whether that's a good idea or how I would go about it. If you have an opinion on which question is best, or have read any of the books and could let me know whether you think they'd work for an EE, I'd really appreciate it
  17. Hello everyone. Currently I'm trying to think of a topic and a research question for the extended essay. Among the 6 subject groups, only math(and maybe physics) is of interest to me, but right now I'm not sure if my topic would work well for me so I would like to ask you guys to pitch in your thoughts or suggestions on it. My idea is trying to derive a formula for any conic section that is in an angle using analytical geometry and loci, and maybe compare it with other methods like matrices or rotation functions. I don't have a lot of idea on matrices though I also want to try to use the applications of calculus, but i dont know where to start thanks for the help
  18. Hola fellas, first full copy of EE is due on Oct 5th (internal deadline-don't panic), and I was wondering how many resources like books or journals mates doing their ee in physics have. As you understand, the majority of the theoretical background for the experiment can be covered by 1-3 resources only, but our school's guidelines talk about a "vast range" of sources, without specifying the acceptable number for each group. I'd appreciate some input. Thanks a lot
  19. Hi guys, So I have been researching a lot about what book/s I should do for my EE (due 2018 but I need my topic in the next month or so). One of the aspects of literature that really interests me is the use of magical realism and mysticism in modern literature. I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers around the following topics - I know the research questions aren't too well formulated but my EE supervisor should be able to help with that, she just doesn't know much about any of the books or topics I want to write about at this point. - How does Tony Morrison use mystical elements in Beloved to portray the psychological impact of slavery? - How are mystical elements employed in Zadie Smith's 'White Teeth' and Haruki Murakami's 'Kafka On The Shore'? (or maybe The Wind Up Bird Chronicle) - Possibly some kind of comparison of Zadie Smith's 'On Beauty' and E.M. Forsters 'Howard's End' as the former is based on the latter, however I don't really know whether that's a good idea or how I would go about it. Also, for what its worth, if you think all of these are terrible and I need to start again, please let me know Thank you so so much!!
  20. Hi, Throughout my Chem EE (APA citation), I'm using different pieces of information from the same page in the same website. So I have the same in-text citation whenever I use the website's info (which is fine, I think, because there are a lot of other citations in between), but in the bibliography, I have the same citation repeated four times. Is that fine or should I use an abbreviation? What should I do about it? This is the bibliography citation btw: ACID_BASE INDICATORS. (2017). Ch.ic.ac.uk. Retrieved 19 June 2017, from http://www.ch.ic.ac.uk/vchemlib/course/indi/indicator.html
  21. Hi, Can we use contractions like 'it's', 'I've', etc? I'm doing a Chemistry EE and we need to keep the formal tone, but I'm going over the word limit so I'm hoping contractions will save me. Thanks in advance!
  22. Hello, my fellow IB students. I'm seeking help for my English B Extended Essay, I already have my topic, RQ, but I'm struggling with the overall approach to it. The EE is going to be focused on how Trump effectively used communication (persuasive language, tweets, etc.) to succeed in his presidential campaign because I'm fascinated by this crazy phenomenon. I have plenty of info and ideas already, I'm just not sure how to appropriately put them all together and that is why I need help very bad. If anyone is willing to give me working tips suitable for my EE, I'd be more than happy. I don't want to give my exact topic, rq, etc. online, so comment here and I'll send you a private message.
  23. I write art EE in pop art. To be specific, the topic is To what extent has western artist Andy Warhol influenced eastern artist Ai Weiwei's work. I have wrote about 700 words, but I find it very confusing. The research I did for preparation work cannot help me at all. I haven't write anything since those 700 words. Any advice on art EE?
  24. So far I've narrowed my topic down to something in the area of how cloud computing has helped businesses establish better customer relations, but I also have another topic similar to this and I don't know if its feasible or not. I’m having a hard time thinking of a research question, so would something like “To investigate how cloud computing can help businesses in establishing better customer relations.” be a decent question or does it need to be more refined? Also, another topic that’s similar to this which I’m having a hard time deciding which I want to do is the idea of social media helping businesses increase visibility or helping with customer relations. My problem is 1. I’m not sure if I can get enough primary research done by my draft due date and 2. I’m not sure how specific I have to be with my research questions, as I’m concerned with whether or not I need to add specific locations (Ontario, Canada for where I reside and can perform primary research) or specify which type of businesses can be affected (Food? Service?) Thanks in advance
  25. Hello fella ib students! I am very new to this, but I desperately need help to any of you who are willing to I am doing my EE on english lit, and my topic is: "an examination of Emily Dickinson's treatment of nature on a selection of her poetry." My supervisor suggested me to choose this topic. Now, my research question, I believe, can still be refined, and so far what I got is "How does Emily Dickinson’s treatment of nature in [four to six] of her poems help to convey her questions in life and her psychological state of mind?" What do you think? I am a little bit concerned that I will focus too much on her life/biography, and from what I've read in the IB guide it says that “Essays that interpret literary works in terms of the writer’s life tend to produce reductive readings based on second-hand information. Such essays receive low marks and the IB therefore advises students to avoid biographical topics.” My supervisor said that I dont have to worry too much since I can just focus on how the poems convey the meaning of life in general than oppose to what the poet thinks. Nonetheless, I am still in my second semester of year 11, and I think I can still develop my RQ. I have other ideas which still have Dickinson's nature poems as a focus: - Comparative study on her nature poems with other poets. - Focus on the two ways she approach or represent nature in her poems. I would really appreciate anyone's help tbh!! Give me your opinions
