  1. Hello, I'm starting IB and I really want to start working on my EE this year so that next year isn't so rough and that way I don't do it carelessly. Anyways, I was thinking of doing it on English B, and Immigration (I'm only starting so I don't really know what I'm gonna focus on) is something I find really interesting and my teacher is someone who I adore and I get along very well with. Is it a really common topic? I really like it, but if it's something that's way too used I want to change it and pick something thats a bit less used. ☺️?
  2. I'm taking English A literature as one of my IB subjects and I was wondering whether the following research question for my EE would be relevant to my subject: How and why does the English language influence our way of thinking and hence, behaving in comparison to other languages?
  3. I'm starting my extended essay and I want to do something about chemistry (but not biochem, since I don't take biology) or physics For chem, I came up with 2 possible topics: Determining acidity levels of different fruits (or same fruits produced in different places) Verifying “real fruit” statements on juices by analyzing both the juice and the fruit they’re claiming to use For physics, I came up with 3 topics: How does the injection of HHO in the mechanical engine improve its efficiency? Hydrostatic pressure in different heights from the ground Concentration vs refraction Are these doable? I'm in first year for both courses and will take HL next year, but I don't feel like I've learned much so far. I'm leaning more towards chem (more for a teacher-hunting purpose), but I'll have to do physics if those topics are undoable. Thank you
  4. Can anyone please help me with this For my Extended Essay, I plan to do research on the business/economic aspect of football. As football is becoming more of a business in the modern day, and many decisions are business motivated it is what i plan to research. However, the issue is that along with checking in with my supervisor we realized that the Business Management EE is more an analysis of an organization making a decision or activities of the firm and that business tools would need to be used. Also, we could not find how we would apply this topic to the Economics IB syllabus. Examples of what I would wish to study are analyzing China’s recent activity in the football market and their 50 point development plan for football in China or the expansion of the world cup to 48 teams. There is nothing specific under this topic I wish to do my EE in and any thing that I can find suitable to do my EE related to this topic will be great.

  6. Hello, I'm just starting my extended essay. My subject is English. I want to analyse archetypes in The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. If I picked a few situational archetypes, a few character archetype and maybe a few setting archetype and I discussed them in my essay and took passages from the book that would prove that this archetype is present in this story would that work? Is it too broad of a subject? Should I keep it to one sort of archetype only? This is my school's first year in the diploma so we don't know what would be considered as a vague topic.
  7. So far I've come up with three different approaches to what I want to work on for my EE; which is western animation. The movies that I have seen potential in for analysis are the ones mentioned in the questions. I need some feedback on which of these is more acceptable for an English Extended Essay (if any) and some suggestions on the wording/scope of them. The first was suggested to me by my adviser. Topic Question South American Settings How are South American settings explored in Postcolonial American Animated Films “The Road To El Dorado” and “Emperor’s New Groove”? Postcolonial Theory To what extent are Ancient World Cultures portrayed accurately in Postcolonial Animated Films “Moana” and “Kubo and The Two Strings”? Character Dynamics To what extent do the main characters in “The Road to El Dorado” and “The Emperor’s New Groove” interact through similar dynamics? Thank you!
  8. Hi everyone! We just had an EE launch. I'm a Year1 IB student. I want to do Computer science at university and our school does not have IB Computer Science as a subject.

  9. So i have to choose my extended essay topic in a few days and i have a "few" areas of history which i believe i would like to do the essay in. I just have no idea about what form the questions could take regarding these areasss and so i ask for your help to suggest questions for them? Also if you have any critiques regarding these areas, i would appreciate any advice. 1) Medicis - Italian Renaissance 2) Racism in 1920s America 3) Henry VIII's reign 4) French Revolution 5) The tudors... (this is very broad but i'm generally open to any questions with regards to this time period?) 6) Hitler and the Nazi Reign 7) Winston Churchill
  10. So I'm currently working on my EE on economics. My RQ is: 'to what extent does the price discrimination used by Singapore Airlines affect the demand for Singapore Airlines plane tickets?'

But I don't have any ideas what to change the RQ into.......somebody pls help... the data that I currently hv include: SIA's monthly & yearly revenue, load factor, available seats, passenger yield, sales in advance of carriage, passenger revenue by route region etc.
  11. Hi, so this is my first year in IB and I'm not sure which lesson I should take my EE from. Everyone suggests Turkish (my native language) as it will be very easy to get a good grade, but that's not what I really want to do. I am very interested in music and how it is affected by different political situations. I was thinking of writing my essay on how music is affected by a certain political situation or social problem and focus on the 20th century, but I'm not really sure which lesson I need to choose in order to do something like this. Another idea is to analyze music (maybe a few songs) and investigate how it reflects the political or socioeconomic situation of the era and the country, and I was thinking of focusing on the US during the Vietnam War for that. I thought about taking it from music, but my essay will focus on the society and politics and use music as a tool, so I'm not sure if that will be a good idea. I thought about taking it from world studies, but I'm not sure if it will make sense as I'm not thinking of focusing on a "global" issue. What do you suggest me? Thanks!
  12. Hi! SO my EE is due in a couple of hours (English EE) and it's a well written essay, but because I had to make some adjustments to my original draft which was horrible, I'm at 2000 words... I don't have enough time or resources to even bump this up to 2700 ish... so will I get a bad EE grade? Can anyone reassure me that they were able to get Cs and Ds on the EE even if they wrote less than 3000 words in the humanities? I have enough examples, and sources, and it's well written... It's super easy to get a D because I followed the rubric, but I'm just worried that they'll be harsh at grading just because of the lack of words.
  13. So i have decided to do a comparitive essay on Lolita and a Clockwork Orange for my extended essay. I did research the two books and saw aspects like the similarity in narration techniques and diction in the two books. I also saw similarities between the protagonists of each book as well as differences between the same.The third spect was as to how the reader feels sympathy for the protagonists despite their criminal nature. However, i am having a tough time in formulating a research question for the same. Any help and other possible points to look at will be greatly appreciated.
  14. For the extended, I would like to do an investigation of aspects of the Fibonacci Sequence that apply to real life. Would this work?

  17. Hey guys If possible, could you please let me know if this is a good enough research question for an Extended Essay in Literature? Research Question - How does Cormac McCarthy use the relationship of the man and his son to address themes of morality in his novel The Road? I know there's a lot of meat when it comes to morality in this book, and the relationship of father and son seems to form the centrepiece of it. I'm just not 100% sure if this question will help me fulfil all the requirements for a literature EE. Thank you so much.
  18. Hi everyone, I am wanting to begin writing my extended essay and get the majority of it done in the week before school goes back. I am going to be doing my extended essay under the subject of Visual Arts and l am having difficulty choosing a specific topic/question. I have two ideas that l am keen about and l actually believe that l could incorporate psychology into both areas of research. Do l need to include a second subject into my extended essay if it is applicable? The two topics/questions are: * To what extent is art therapy healing for the mind, the spirit and the body of an individual? And * The art of propaganda and how it is manipulated by political parties The first question l found off a website offering ideas for visual arts extended essays. The second one l came up with myself. I'm not sure which one to choose and so l was wondering if someone could offer me their opinion. Also, if anyone has any advice on the extended essay in general and how to approach it and all that, that would be much appreciated. Thanks xx
  19. Hi Everyone, you probably know how it feels to start researching your EE, especially if there isn't so much literature on it. My topic is especially complicated as I chose to research the Effect of methanol, ethanol and propan-1-ol on the photosynthesis of the plant. I tried to find sources but it seems as there isn't any material connected to my research topic. I would really appreciate if you helped me find any useful literature and give any advice regarding my research. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
  20. Hi, I'm in my second year of IB and I really need help with trying to process my ee data. My research question is how does the thickness of a metallic strip affect the amplitude of the strip in a standing wave. I am open to any recommendations to change my question. I have all my raw data but I'm stuck on how to process the data. The raw data is the amplitudes from the standing wave. If there are any possible formulas that I could use which includes amplitude in it I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

  25. Hello, I am in Grade 11 and am about to embark on the journey on writing an EE. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice, or critiques on the question I am going to submit? I don't have it fully written out but its about how women in houses/windows are used to symbolise their feelings of entrapment in both House on Mango Street and The Yellow Wallpaper.
