Hello, fellow International Baccalaureate students! I need your help here please with the Group 4 project. This year, our class has been the first IB class at my school required to take IB Biology our Junior year. We also have IB Physics HL as a 6th subject at my school. We have no other IB sciences. Our teacher is new to understanding IB in general and we are receiving many conflicting and confusing statements from him. I cannot find any requirements for the Group 4 project set out by IBO. Can somebody please inform me on what they are? Are projects supposed to be analyzed from Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and Environmental points of view? Are we allowed to or supposed to use all of these points of view despite not having IB Chemistry or IB Environmental Science at my school? Also, in the group there is nobody who is taking IB Physics, are there any tips you can give us? Thank you for all of your advice and help!
I want to write a world studies essay using biology and environmental sciences (possibly another subject if necessary, math maybe? With statistics? I don't know I'm very confused as to what is expected of me with a world studies EE) about the global food crisis and how it can be solved using genetically modified crops. I am not sure how in depth and focused my research question needs to be though. I can go as specific as corn in different areas such as Kenya and the United States, or take it on a how this impacts the environment route if that makes any sense. But I'd like help as to what I need to do to make it more or less concise, please. Thank you
I am working on my extended essay, which is about the conflict between Mexico and the US over distribution of the Colorado River. I am thinking my research question will be something to the effect of: Was the 1944 US-Mexico Water Treaty effective in managing the Colorado River? Would this be a history or environmental science essay? My school prefers to submit history papers, but I don't want to register in the wrong category... Thoughts?
Hi! I currently have an idea for an extended essay on environmental sciences regarding acid mine drainage in my local area. I know I will be experimenting more than using published research as I am testing how the local soil affects the pH levels of water. Some background information on acid mine drainage is that it is a chemical reaction when ferrous iron is oxidized and turns into ferric iron (thus polluting water sources). My problem is that I have no clue how to fit this into an extended essay subject! I'm know that it is probably going to end up being under a Chemistry EE but what are your thoughts? I'm used to writing abstracts and experiment proofs (mostly biology) but never have I done one on a chemistry based-subject matter! How else could I focus this more so towards chemistry without forgetting its real world environmental application? I truly thank everyone who took the time to read this and possibly answer my question!
