  1. Hey, While viewing my IBO coursework it says that there was an unexpected server response like so. Does anyone know why is it happening?
  2. My extended essay question is "To what extent can primate non-verbal communication with humans be considered innate behavior versus acquired?" Would anyone be willing to give me some feedback? Also i'm unsure which subject area this fits in to. I originally created it to be a part of Culture, language and identity in world studies but i'm unsure if that is the best subject area for this topic. My teacher has been out for some time so i have been unable to talk to him. If anyone has any feedback, suggestions, and/or criticisms i'm completely open and it would be much appreciated!!
  3. Do any of you guys know if we will be able to right our extended essay on global Politics? It'd be really helpful if you could give me some answers, thank you!
  4. hey there I was just wondering if it is normal for other IB schools to put an internal deadline on the Extended Essay in IB1. Our IB coordinator has set our deadline at the end of IB1 and if we do not live up to this internal deadline, we would fail the IB. He has done the same with many other IA's that we have done, and he has given us all of these IA's during the period of our exams stressing us out completely. If I do not complete my EE this year, can he actually kick me out, even though my grade average is 6 and I barely have any absence.
  5. I am planning to write my ee on film, and my current topic was 'How are filmic/cinematic techniques utilized by Tykwer and his team, in order to portray a sense of smell in his film, 'Perfume: The Story of a Murderer' and how can their efficacy be measured?'. So I was going to analyze just 1 film 'perfume: the story of a murderer', but my supervisor says I need to select at least 2 films to compare. I looked at the Extended essay guidance for film, but it just mentions that 'For primary sources, there must be detailed references to at least one film (or major television work). Primary sources could consist of the film(s), the script, the screenplay, the score, personal contacts, or personal correspondence with individuals involved in making the film.' Do I need at least 2 movies to compare? Thanks
  6. Hi, I'd like an opinion on two ideas I have for a Chemistry Extended Essay: "How does the Kc of a hibiscus indicator change with temperature?" and "At what pH values do red, yellow and white hibiscus indicators change colours? What kind of titrations can they be used for?" I'd like to know which of these topics would be simpler (I need to do a lot of reading and learning either way) and which one sounds original. I personally prefer the second one as I think its results will be more useful for real-world applications but I think I feel like its already been done. Thanks in advance!
  7. For my extended essay I originally wanted too choose Quantum mechanics but I was adviced agaisnt this. The topic I am now considering is the effect of the curve and the length of a curve on the time taken for a ball to get from one position to another. This has already been solved and is known as a Brachistochrone. is this still a valid topic for my extended essay? If not does anyone have any other better recomendations for me? Is this more related too maths? Thanks
  8. Hey, so I recently posted a survey on the internet as a method of collecting primary research data. The thing is, some people would like to see the results of the survey once the number of responses slow down a bit. I would personally love to share the results, but with IB being IB I don't know if it will come back to bite me in the ass. Am I allowed to make the results accessible by anyone? If I am, will I have to somehow prove that the results are 100% collected by me? Is it possible to be accused of plagiarism? If I'm not, when will I be able to do it? Thanks
  9. Hi there. This is my first time using IB Survival, and I need some help with my extended essay. I have never taken an IB Business and Management class, but the extended essay I am writing is something I am very passionate about. My RQ is: To what extent has the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's "Triple Aim" framework improved the performance of urban health systems? From what I have deduced, this falls under operations management and business strategy, so if anyone has any pointers for me, that would be awesome!
  10. Hi! I am currently planning my RQ for my EE in Lang & Lit. I want to write an essay on something along the lines of "the use of humour/satire in The Simpson's & Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream". However, I am confused on how I should frame my research question as what I have right now seems very vague. Are there any specific topics I could explore more in depth that are common both of these works? As well, is this a suffiecent topic? P.S. I am pretty sure this would be a Category 3 Essay - and the guidelines states that the essay should have "textual analysis" and have reference to a "cultural context". I am not sure to what this would mean..

  12. So I'm doing my EE in Biology and my research question is "To what extent does constant cold acclimation at the temperatures 18˚, 5˚, and 0˚ degrees centigrade affect the seed germination rate and subsequent total biomass yield produced in Phleum pratense L. (Timothy grass)?". The experiment was supposed to investigate the effects of seeds germinated under cold temperatures and the effect on the biomass produced in seeds after germination among different temperatures. I even had some data with around an 80% germination rate for the seeds at 10˚C. But 10 days in, and 100% of the seeds at 18˚ (my control group!) germinated and 0% of the seeds germinated in both the 5˚ & 0˚ groups. I have no ideas for any other topics in Biology. What do I do? Continue writing the EE with my failed experiment and try to come up with reasons why it failed, and even attempt to state that this could be beneficial to the scientific community? Try to switch research questions within Biology? Or do I all out switch subjects to English and just "type away"? I need answers quick, because I have 9 weeks left until I have to present an EE without a conclusion. Future message to those who reply: Thank you for taking your time to read and answer!
  13. I'm doing my EE in economics, and I need some help to develop survey questions. My EE is based on the market failure caused by a pharmaceutical firm in my locality. My supervisor isn't very helpful in guiding me, and i dont know what sort of a survey I should take. I was thinking of interviewing the firm, and then the local residents. How should i base by survey question?
  14. extended essay

    I was wondering how I could change my biology EE as it's starting to seem feel as though its way over my head. Right now my research question is "How does the toxicity of organic herbicide acetic acid differ in toxicity from its conventional counterpart 2,4-D when exposed to algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii in similar concentrations to what is used in agricultural farming?" However, I've started to realize that some of the equipment I need in order to conduct this research project is too expensive or impossible to get a hold of. Right now I was wondering if there is any way I could modify this topic to make it more feasible or if I should give up and come up with something completely different. What do you guys think? Is it possible to modify a topic like this or should I change it completely? If I should change it what suggestions do you guys have for a good biology topic? I still kind of want to do something related to pesticides but doing something with noise and/or light pollution's effects on animals also sounds pretty cool.
  15. I am doing mathematics for my extended essay and my topic is on Morley's Trisector Theorem, which states that if you trisect the three angles of any triangle, then the resulting intersections of each adjacent pair of trisectors forms an equilateral triangle in the center, deemed the Morley Triangle. My topic is on finding an expression for the area of that triangle depending on the placement of one of the points of the triangle in space, and later find the maximum area of the triangle as the area of the outer triangle extends to infinity. The problem is... I am not sure what to do about my sources. So far, I have one source that gives the proof of the theorem, one that gives the same proof but in a slightly different step-by-step guide, one gives the history of the theorem, and one just introduces the theorem itself. That is four sources, and if I were to include the Calculus Options textbook as a source (which I'm allowed to do but sounds kind of needless) that would be five sources. Is that enough? If that is all I need to do a more or less in depth analysis, is it okay to focus more on my own mathematical skills rather than facts or methods that I see other people doing? If it helps, I have done minor research to see if anyone else has done this topic, and although it has been touched on it has been trivial, so I do not think that those sources would be of much use to me other than stating my justification of my own topic. Please help, because I do not want to get marked down on the "Investigation" category for not having enough sources or not using them effectively.
  16. My Extended Essay title from Economics is What market structure best characterizes medicine supply industries in my area Baku? Is it too narrow or too broad? I could've chosen another city but this where I live so I can do some primary research.
  17. Hi everyone, my name is Giovanni and currently I am doing my IB. I need some help for my extended essay, i've got some research but its not enough.

  18. I decided to do my ee in psychology and this week we have to upload an outline for our essay, I don't know how the outline is required to look like or how detailed it should be.
  19. Hi! I was wondering if one could do an Extended Essay on a subject they are not taking for example: if I wanted to do an EE on Gesualdo's Madrigal "Moro Lasso Al Mio Duolo", even though I am not taking IB Music. Thanks in advance
  20. Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a dilemma over my research question for the IB Extended Essay. My research question is as follows: What role did the diet of the Roman Army play in their Egyptian military campaign? Ideally, it should fall under History, but since nutrition is involved, it also qualifies as a Biology topic. My dilemma is, what subject area does this research question fall under, and whether or not it is allowed to write an Extended Essay in two subject areas - History and Biology in this case. I know this might be a really stupid question, but I hope that you guys can help me! My tentative plan (subject to approval) is to write the entire nutrition / diet part of the essay in terms of Biology (including diagrams, reports, microscope images (if applicable), etc.) and then use the historical part of this essay to compare the nutrition to the terrain the Roman Army used to fight on in the hope of answering my research question. I'd also appreciate feedback on this plan. Thanks!
  21. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone can give me feedback about my EE question. To what extent was the Russian Revolution inspired by Karl Marx? Any feedback is welcome, Thanks.
  22. Thoughts on doing my EE and my Outline on psychology. Help.
  23. Hey Guys, So i wanted to write my EE on the effects of segregation in schools in the 1960's do you know any good sources I could use?
  24. Hello, When does the IB start grading stuff that you've submitted to IBIS, like the Extended Essay, TOK, IB Visual Arts material, and your English Written Assignment? etc. Does this happen before the exams are over? Like, are they marking everything now? In addition, if you, let's say get caught plagiarising on any of the above, do you get contacted? Or do you just fail your diploma? I'm pretty sure they contact you before your diploma is out to justify. Correct? Regards
  25. I have been throwing around different ideas for my extended essay on bees for a while. At first I wanted to see if they had a significant impact on ecosystems where they were introduced, but realized no one on Earth has kept data on that, so I decided to see what sort of data there is on bees and other pollinators so I can determine which are important. However, there's only articles on that and I can't find any quantitative data. I'm having a hard time figuring out what possible idea I could follow that has data collected already, which I can also conduct a small experiment for. Does anyone have any ideas? I'd really appreciate them.
