  1. Hi! Sorry for another EE help post but I really don't know what I should do next for my EE... Here's my situation. I'm currently writing my economics EE with the research question " to what extent would Quebec's dairy industry be threatened by the removal of trade protections?" and I'm still a little confused about how I should answer questions based on "to what extent." Should I be answering it with my opinion of "yes it will be threatened" or something more like "it will be threatened in/because of certain aspects"? Moreover, would this research question fall under the "research question should not be hypothetical or in the future" section under the five year rule? I just saw this but my mentor has already approved my topic? Also, I have written out all the economic theory that I plan to use in my EE, how should I write an outline? Should there be arguments for or against the RQ? I'm not really sure how I can approach it, as to me, this is very different from the other essays that we've written in English or the other classes. Sorry for the bombardment of questions and I hope that I can receive some responses!
  2. Hey. This is my first time posting, so hopefully someone can help me out here. I've just got my Extended Essay proposal back from my supervisor, and she flat out rejected it and said that I need to get something else to write about. The topic of my essay is "To what extent did aviation affect the outcome of WW2?". I would like to write about something regarding aviation and/or the second world war, but there is a lot of pre-existing research on the topic, so it's difficult to find something original to do and I also need to find something that presents an argument, which is a bit difficult because history is pretty straight-forward (to me at least). Can someone help me find something interesting to write about and make suggestions as to how to narrow down my research question and make it argumentative? Thanks in advance, --A Drooling Failure
  3. For my History Extended Essay, I use a few websites that have old constitutions of the People's Republic of China. But I have no idea how to cite them! For example: http://en.pkulaw.cn/display.aspx?cgid=52993&lib=law https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/mod/1949-ccp-program.asp Is there a proper way on how to cite them? Or should I simply cite them as websites?
  4. okay so it's the first year my school is doing IB and they've lied to my class the whole past year about what IB actually is, i really don't know much about it and what i find on internet is kinda confusing. anyways, i chose to do my EE on Language B High Level but it's been more than three months and my teachers are not helping, we don't have any idea of which topic to do so can someone recommed me titles please? i don't want to do literature but the other to options are fine for me.
  5. So I am doing my extended essay in psychology, on Alzheimer's disease and its possible treatment. My research question at the moment is: To what extent do biological and psychological factors influence the possible treatment of Alzheimer’s disease? Is it too broad, and would I be better just picking either biological or psychological factors that influence it only? Or is it better to pick one factor, say music therapy for example, and change the question to, TWE does music therapy influence the possible treatment of AD?
  6. Hello everyone, I am currently doing my EE in computer science and i just want to make sure that my chosen topic is good and i can start working on it My research question is "To what extent is the increase in processing power diminished the need for a complicated sorting algorithms in large data structures" Is the research question fine or do i change/refine it. One problem is that i found a similar question on the official IBO website. Thank you in advance
  7. So far I have begun to start my EE, and I've already got my EE research question ready (How and to what effect does Nathaniel Hawthorne use sin in The Scarlet Letter?) What would be the best way to format the body for an EE? What should I talk about when referencing the research question?
  8. Hi, so I am planning on writting my EE in Business Management and I wanted to look at how trade/labour unions impact the productivity of a determined company. I dont know if this is a good topic and I am having a little trouble finding any specific theories, etc. to use in my essay. Please if anyone can help me with that and also by giving me some pointers of how to tackle the EE I would apreciate it.
  9. Hello guys, so I am currently in year one of IB diploma and in the middle of it, I have to move away to another country. I know that it will somehow affect my study and it will be really stressful for me. I have to change two of my subjects cause the school im moving to doesnt offer the subjects. Im also stressed out because in my current school, we haven't start our EE and IAs yet but the school I am going to started theirs already. How can I be able to cope with this? How am I be able to catch up in a new environment?
  10. Hi! I'm currently editing my History Extended Essay, and I wasn't sure if I should write my research question in the introduction of my essay, or do I need to reword it? My exams are in November 2018, and I can't find any information on it, and since this is my supervisor's first time supervising an EE, she's not sure either. Thanks 🙂
  11. 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!!
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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).
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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!!! 😁
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. How many sources should you have for a History Extended Essay? How many different factors or reasons should you cover?
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
