  1. Hello, I am going to start writing my IA for History, but I am stuck with making a proper question. I know that my topic will be the Indian Partition. I have a few potential questions, but they don't exactly sound right to me. Please let me know how I can fix them/ if they are too broad. Thank you very much. 1.) To what extent was the Partition of India caused by British authority? 2.) To what extent was the Partition of India inevitable? 3.) To what extent was the Indian Partition caused by Hindu-Muslim conflict?
  2. My question is "How do you account for Gandhi's devotion to the concept of nonviolence during the Indian Independence Movement?" I have found plenty of Gandhi's writings on nonviolence. I just don't know where to go from here. I'm just super stuck! I have my Plan of Investigation written. Here it is: The purpose of this investigation is to account for Mohandas K. Gandhi’s devotion to the concept of nonviolence during the Indian Independence Movement. The main body of evidence will be used to determine the origin and reason for the development of Gandhi’s devotion to nonviolent civil disobedience during the struggle for Indian independence. Evidence will include Gandhi’s writings on his life and his faith in nonviolence, interviews conducted during the Indian Independence movement, and documentaries detailing the life of Gandhi as a peacemaker and political leader. Two of the sources will be evaluated according to their purpose, value, and limitations.
  3. Hi, My maths IA plan is due in a week and I am having trouble figuring out how I could further my investigation. My idea is to apply calculus and the principle of Optimization to minimize surface area to volume ration of a house. Does any one have any good ideia to how I could go beyond finding the optimum surface area to volume? Maybe an additional area of mathematics would be good. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me. Thank You
  4. Hi Please help me fill up a really quick survey for my math IA. All you have to do is rate the models honestly! Thank you

    Maths SL IA

    I AM PANICKINGGG!! I thought about doing my IA on modelling a rollercoaster but I am not sure on how to approach it and how to use good enough math on it. Maybe polynomial regression. Any other good ideas for a Maths SL IA???

    Maths SL IA

    Hi! I am thinking on doing my Maths IA on modelling a rollercoaster. I do not know how to approach this topic or how to make it personal. Any suggestions?
  7. Hi everyone! Does anyone know the official IB deadlines for submission of IA's and Extended Essay?
  8. Hello so as the teacher advised me to consider carefully about my IA experiments, I would like to do an experiment about medicines. Could you please suggest me some good experiments about them? I thought about the synthesis of aspirin but the teacher said that it takes too much time. Also, since aspirin hydrolysis is already done by another student, it is preferable to avoid this topic. Thanks for your attention!
  9. After welllll past 24 hours of brainstorming, I have nothing to show for it. Despite my ideas being somewhat creative and interesting, they are deemed unworthy by my holy chem teacher. It seems like no matter what I do I can't either measure or even investigate the topic. Cab anyone please help me?
  10. Hey! I was wondering if anyone has done a Maths IA (exploration) connected with sport and calculations around it, can be both HL or SL. I have to write an essay in Maths (for a competition) which is somehow similar to IA (but it's not really about IA), so that's why it doesn't have any specified level of Maths required. I was thinking of calculating something with skiing (or figure skating) cause I'm interested in that and I think I could find some Maths in it. However, I'm not sure how to tackle the topic (I'm in Y1 so we haven't started our IAs yet) and what it could possibly be about. If anyone has done an IA (or another Maths essay) in any of these topics, it would be awesome if you could tell me what you did basically 😀 Also if anyone has any good, interesting ideas (not neccessarily connected with sport) and rather difficult ones (since it is a competition), feel free to share them with me! I just need to find some inspiration on what I can research and write about. Thanks in advance!!
  11. We had another IA and it’s due Friday but because I’m a certificate student I wasn’t told to do it. So I didn’t and I appreciated that I didn’t have to because of my ADHD. I’m in math studies and I am the only student who isn’t Full Diploma IB in the class and we’re preparing for the IA. If it’s only supposed to help me get the diploma then why would I even bother? I’m not gonna get the diploma anyways (I didn’t even find out I couldn’t until a few months into IB junior year) so I’d just be doing an IA for no reward. I don’t see the value in it unless it will specifically aid me as a Certificate Student. What am I supposed to do?
  12. I am taking math HL and want to write an IA about game theory I have to submit it in 4 days. I can't find any topic "mathematical" enough. Help!
  13. Hi everybody, I have recently been assigned the task; to do my philosophy essay So far I have not thought much to talk about but I know for a fact that I want to base it off of Albert Camus's Absurdism, but at the same time debate with John-Paul Sartre's Existentialism. My philosophical question I thought of is: Should suicide be an option? or this question: Why shouldn't we commit suicide [I like this one more] I would really appreciate any; ideas which I could contribute to this IA as I am currently experiencing Writer's block. Thank you so much guys! here's my stimulus:
  14. Writing my math IA and I want to do something with earthquakes, but I have no idea where to start. I’ve been thinking about maybe doing epicenters or the Richter scale but I can’t find a solid way to incorporate them. If anyone has any ideas please reply!
  15. Hello!! I am writing my psychology IA right now, but now I'm at the result section and I don't understand a thing! My teacher does not explain this well, and he doesn't seem to be certain about what he's doing. There was actually a few people last year who failed their psychology, mainly because of their IAs so I'm a bit terrified! I'm a HL student, so I will need inferential statistics but how does that actually work?? For example, my teacher said I should use the General Linear Model, but I don't know if I'm allowed to use that.. I haven't found anyone who have used it before, but it does calculated the level of significance. Also, do I need a graph or something similar for the inferential part? (I already have graphs in the descriptive statistics section of the essay) Thank you so much in advance!
  16. Hi all. I am working on my Computer Science IA, and am worried about Criterion C- Complexity. Apparently complexity can be added by adding features into our code, like recursion, 2D arrays etc, but is it ok to add these features even if it worsens the program's performance/slows it down, but does the job? I can then talk about how it might not have been the most effective solution in the evaluation section. Would this work?
  17. Hey! So my current topic for my Biology HL IA is "How does pH affect the glucose content in milk?" and I'm not sure if it is good enough to get a good grade (7). I wanted to change the pH of milk by the addition of bases and acids and then adding lactase which would break lactose into glucose and galactose. Then I would use glucose test strips to see what the content of glucose in all of the samples is. Is it good enough? Should I make it more complicated by checking something else? Or should I look for another topic? All tips and help would be much appreciated!
  18. Hey guys! my chem IA is due tomorrow and I still need to complete my conclusion and evaluation. The last two points of my calculated data seem to be outliers and cause my trend line to have an r^2 value of 0. Without these last two points i have a linear relationship. Where do I address why these are outliers? So I take them out?
  19. Hi, Now my teacher asked us to find a topic for our math exploration (IA) and he told us that it has to be something that we like. Now I like airplanes (jets, airbusses...etc) and I found more physics than math on the subject when I searched on Google. So my question is if there's any math behind airplanes, what level is it and what type (algebra, calculus..etc). And if there's not any math or Little math what topics can I choose instead? Thanks.
  20. Hi My math SL IA is the correlation of a country’s health care spending and its rate of tuberculosis. I feel like this doesn’t have enough math. Is there any way I could add more math to it.
  21. I am starting my math IA I have decided to choose the Monty Hall Problem as my topic. I was thinking about explaining the Monty Hall Problem using conditional probability and then expand the Problem by trying it on more than three doors like for example four or five doors in order to try and find a trend or a sequence or a general equation. Is this topic up to the level of the Math SL course and do you have any suggestions about things I should add to the IA. Thank you, your help is really appreciated.
  22. I've started my Math SL IA (finally) after not being able to find a topic for months, whatever I found I either didn't understand, was too simple, or my teacher said there was too little math in it. Currently, I'm working on an IA on the Tower of Hanoi, which happens to also be in an IB sample IA. I'm using the same aim and methods in the sample, but I am planning to cite the sample in my references and use my own words and personal engagement. I told my teacher about the similarity to the sample and she approved my topic, but I'm worried I'm plagiarising and will be penalised for it. Is this plagiarism or can I just continue with what I'm doing?
  23. My IA for macroeconomics is about inflation but the solution that the article states is redenomination, which is not in the topic of economics. Is it alright if I evaluate redenomination in a macroeconomics IA?
  24. I'm doing my microeconomics IA about monopolies, and I'm not sure how I should format it or what to write for each section of my IA. If there's anyone who's done this before, can ya'll please help. 🙏🙏🙏
  25. Okay, I'm new here and I need help regarding my IA. My experiment is as I've described in the title, my problem right now is, I couldn't get the data similar to what I've researched. From my background research, the graph should be in "n" shape. Increase a bit in the beginning and then it should decrease as density increases. What I've got is complete opposite of that. I got a "v" shaped graph. And now I' stuck as I cannot make any sound argument. Has anybody else carried out this experiment before? I really appreciate it if anyone can share their thoughts regarding my IA. The materials that I've been using are oil, water, methanol, detergent and honey. All constant at 100ml volume. And of course, by using the same wine glass.
