  1. Hello, I'm new to this whole website so I'm not really sure how it works here. But anyways, I've got a question: What's the best way to practice analysing, comparing and contrasting two texts? Recently I realised that I have this issue with me where I'm not able to think quickly or make sense when I write on paper (my sentences are always jumbled up, disorganised). I perform great with assessment tasks but writing is a bit of difficulty. Conventionally, I use my laptop to write the answers to the questions then transfer it to my paper, however I won't be allowed to do this during the actual exams, thus I'm quite nervous about my ability to perform an excellent result. So my only option is to start practicing from now, I want to be able to get used to it and hopefully improve by the end of next year, I just need some tips on improvement (maybe some past papers I can download to practice on them), so I was hoping if you guys could help me thanks!

    Math IA

    I still havent started my IA, but i was looking for a good question that doesnt include probability does anyone have suggestions
  3. For my Art EE, I was thinking of using the question "How are American and Japanese art influenced by one another and how are they different?". Is this topic too vague? Should I specify a specific area of art? Is the topic even usable at all? Any feedback and suggestions on this topic would be great. My 2,000 word checkpoint is next week and I haven't even started so I need help ASAP!! Thanks!
  4. Hi! So my math sl ia is due sometime soon, and I can't seem to get started with it. This is the fifth time I've changed my topic, so I've wasted quite a lot of time. I finally decided to do my math sl ia on this topic: Modelling the development of swimming performance in the Asian Games.I'm planning to focus on the gold medal winning times in the women's 50 and 100 freestyle. However, I'm not sure on what mathematical concepts and processes I'm supposed to use to model it. I've read a lot of literature on it, but I still don't quite grasp the concept of how to model it. I've tried asking my teacher, but she isn't much help. Anyone can give me some guiding points on how I should take on the topic? Thank you so much!
  5. Hello all. I'm in the search for good quality student model woodwind instruments for the growing music program in my school. One of the biggest problems has been the type of glue used for the joint corks on the clarinets. They have not held up to the hot tropical weather. Any suggestions are more than welcomed. Thanks in advance. -Emanuel
  6. Hello everyone, I am currently in my fifth week of IB Year 1 and I have gotten settled with my new teachers and classes. I have set a goal for myself to get at least 40 points in the IB, but I do know that it will be tough and will require the right mentality (I'm working on it!). So, I wanted to come here and ask if any of you more experienced IB students had some advice or helpful tips for any of my subjects: IB Math HL IB Physics HL IB Economics HL IB Computer Science SL IB German B SL IB English Language and Literature SL Any help (including general IB mentality/work-ethic as well) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  7. I will be starting my two years of IB diploma in September but have been seriously doubting my choice. Will IB help me get into a good med school or will it just cause me pain and stress? my schedule is IB english 20, IB history 20, IB TOK ethics 20, IB Math foundations 30, IB Health science 20 and second semester it is IB world literature, IB History 20, IB Health science 20, IB Pre calc 30, Communication Media-Film 20 and IB French 20 I will also be taking IB phycology, law and physical science 20 over the summer.
  8. Hello! I'm doing my extended essay on plant growth, but I only have 3 trials from my experimenting. I was told that theres hardly any statistical analysis that i can do without more than 5 trials, aside from calculating the mean, and I have no idea where to go with my data. I was planning on a lab based EE from primary data, but I'm not sure if thats possible anymore seeing as I dont have enough trials for in depth statistical analysis. Should I run more trials, or should I change direction with my EE and use my primary data to support secondary data, turning it into a research based essay instead of experimental?? Please help!! - Thanks, Cherry
  9. 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.
  10. Psychology IA Statistics Help (Tversky and Kahneman 1974) I chose to do my IA on the Tversky and Kahneman 1974 experiment on the anchoring bias. Basically, it was an independent samples design. In condition A, the participants were asked to estimate a numerical expression in ascending order 1 X 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 x 8. In condition B, it was presented in descending order 8 X 7 X 6 X 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1. I already ran the experiment, but my problem is with getting the statistics. As it is independent measures, my teacher said to use the Mann-Whitney test. However, when I input my data, I get this notification: The sum of ranks for samples A and B combined does not equal [n(n+1)]/2. Please check your data entries. Do you have any suggestions for what to do? What test to use instead?? Or do I stick with the test and create ranges (that's what my teacher suggested)? Any help is appreciated. If you want to see the original experiment https://msu.edu/~ema/803/Ch11-JDM/2/TverskyKahneman73.pdf (Study 6: Extrapolation) *Btw the actual value was 40,320
  11. Hello! I am starting my first year of pre-IB in two weeks or so (the fourth of September) and I’m quite anxious about it. I’ve been doing a lot of math sheets and reading material that the school has suggested all pre-IB students do. I’m just wondering if anyone has any advice for me, or any advice specifically for pre-IB students. Basically, anything you’ve done in pre-IB that was stupid that (hopefully) I can avoid. Thanks!
  12. Hi there! So we are currently on the stage of finalising what topic we want to do for our EE and I am doing mine in History, but am having some trouble choosing which one to do. I really want to get an A or B on the extended essay, so need a topic that sounds like it has a lot of good material in order for me to get a high grade So the topic I am currently interested in are: - How the African National Congress with Nelson Mandela was influenced by the Indian independence movement with Mahatma Gandhi and why peaceful protests worked in India, but not in Africa (this could possibly also explore ideas of terrorists vs freedom fighters? I'm not sure) - Princess Sophia's (From India) impact and influence on the suffragettes' movement in England - An exploration of Britain's rule on India and what kind of negative impacts that had (Maybe also explore the idea of whether or not Britain should pay reparations to India --> this idea came from the novel 'inglorious empires' by Shashi Tharoor) Any help is appreciated!! Thanks :))
  13. I have just started the second and final year of the program, but I have wasted last year and my summer, do you have any tips for studying and covering everything on one year?
  14. Hi, I need to write a written assignment for the external assessment which is the 1500 word literary essay on a work studied in part1. I'm writing my essay on Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman. My guiding question for the essay is "How does Dorfman create conflict between Paulina & Gerardo through the use of dramatic dialogue and how is it resolved?" I plan to constrain it to act 1 scene 1 while linking it to other parts of the play. Do you think that this is an appropriate topic? And I'm not sure about the structure of the essay. What do I start writing with? Please help ASAP!! Thanks
  15. So I'm currently a freshman (9th Grade) taking Algebra II/Trig, and was wondering which math class to take next year (10th Grade). The choice is between SL or HL math. I have gotten pretty different information from various sources. Plan #1: 10th Grade: SL Math 11th Grade: HL Math 1 12th Grade: HL Math 2 Plan #1: 10th Grade: HL Math 1 11th Grade: HL Math 2 12th Grade: AP Stats My guidance counselor recommended that I do plan #1 because I have consistently gotten good scores in Math, but others have told me that plan #2 was better because I would take three years of IB math, rather than two. So I'm rather conflicted with my choice right now. Thanks for any input!
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. Hi Everyone ! i misunderstood the standard level bio IA instructions for the amount of data points. It turns out you are just supposed to do 250 data points for each variable. i have 5 variables of course, and my ia is testing the length of grass seeds in different vitamin-soil mixtures. so I misunderstood everything and I did 250 data points for each variable, so all together I have a 1,000 data points. For example I tested Vitamin C, in 5 trials, with 50 data points per trial. So all together 250 points for one variable. The 50 points per trial were measuring the length of 50 grass seeds. now my teacher isn’t replying. I did all my data, and processed data like standard deviation and averages. please help. I have no idea what to do. I put all the raw data in the appendix. And all the processed data (averages of each trial) I put in the actual lab report. what should I do ? I’m not going to go over the 12 page limit. Can graders penalize me ??
  19. I made the stupid decision of writing my EE on a subject which my school doesn't offer, and regret it... but whatever! I'd love it if somebody who takes the course or goes to a school that offers it could help me out by sending me some kind of study guide, curriculum, a sample essay of any kind or even putting me in contact with somebody would help-- I'm just looking to better understand the subject and hopefully find someone that can give me some tips or even read my essay! Thank you so much guys!!
  20. Hi, I am doing a Psychology IA on the effect of music on test performance, and am struggling to find a theory or model that describes what I am investigating. If any of you guys have perhaps done a similar study, and have a theory or model you are happy to share, that would be greatly appreciated. The original study I am using is attached below. Thanks, Altre01 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4066931/
  21. 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?
  22. So I'm still really confused about what exactly we have to do during TOK presentations and how we have to structure it, but one idea that I had was to explore different painting as my real life situation, or that one thing that happened where the two boys put a pair of glasses on the ground of an art gallery and everyone thought it was a piece of art. On e of the ideas I had to do for my KQ was: “To what extent do sense perception and emotion influence the value of art?" If this question good enough to explore to get a high grade? I have some stuff I could take about with it, but it doesn't sound as fancy as some of the ones I've been seeing online as really good. Any help is appreciated!! :)))

  24. Hi I’m going into math sl and we have to write an IA. I wanted to write an IA on population growth in China but i have no idea how to. Can someone tell me how to write this and if it’s a suitable subject for Math SL IA?
  25. Hi can anyone please try to give me some ideas for the biology HL IA? I had an idea about compost and taking the temperature of it, but I think it would take too long and require a lot of attention. I also am interested in enzymes. I love biology so much and I really enjoyed the first year of ib and I did well on the tests, but now that I'm starting to look at experiment ideas I feel so stupid and I don't understand them. Might end up dropping out. Oh well! :/
