  1. I'm doing my IA this summer, meaning I don't have a way to contact my teacher with questions. Does it matter how many words I have in part A and B and C if the word count all together is 2,200? My total words at the moment are 2,300 and I have 1,600 in my investigation (I know, I've already had like 5 panic attacks about it) whilst the other are shorter but still have everything they need I think? Advice on what I should do? My deadline is on August 10th.
  2. Hi, I would appreciate it if you guys would take some time to fill out a questionnaire for my ESS IA. LINK- https://goo.gl/forms/ZClR3gI2o61pd6772 Thanks!
  3. So I am entering my second year as a DP student which is both exciting and unnerving due to the shear amount of work there is to do. That being said my math teacher over the summer wanted us to finalize our math IA topics. I have narrowed it down to two potential topics which are the geometry of ice hockey or how does listening to music affect ones ability to solve math equations. Thanks so much, Maddy
  4. Hi, second year IB student here who takes psychology HL. I just recently got my draft back from my teacher, with a quite low score. Is there anyone here who knows what they are doing, who would be willing to read over my fixed version and tell me what they think? Please PM me if you can God do I hate the one draft policy...
  5. Hi, My fieldwork report (IA) is due to be finished till the end of summer tbh my class has done a fieldwork investigation already in an urban park area in a bigger city, but the whole data collection was messed up and now i'm thinking about doing a research on my own :( I live in Hungary and the only place where they grow rice is around the little town where i happen to live...they have bio rice, wild rice and all kinds of stuff, anyways It sort of a HUGE deal, the paddy fields take up an area of 1000 ha land, they water it from a special canal and supposedly it satisfies 30% of the European wild rice market demands... I've been thinking about doing an IA related to this, but i'm not sure which topic would be optimal for this and what things could i really measure... Maybe it could be about something related to soil degradation or impact on the local environment in general, and the question could be like "How has agricultural activity at Location Y affected X?", but i can't really examine the impact over time...so I don't know :/ Any idea/suggestion/tip is deeply appreciated and desperately needed :3
  6. So I am trying to get my math IA done this summer but am having a hard time choosing a topic that I like. I am really interested in film and cinematography and would like to incorporate it in my math IA but have found nothing on math ia topics that involved film from past math IA topics. I decided that I would come up with my own math IA exploration that has not been done before. My topic/question is "Does movies/films that use the Fibonacci sequence and Golden Ratio make high profits compared to movies that don't?" Is this a good idea for a math IA topic? Could I make it better? Are there any other math IA topics that involve film or cinematography? Is there other ways I can involve film and cinematography in my IA like through geometry, conditional probability, etc.? What general topics make for a high marked IA? What makes for a good IA? Also these are my other topics for a math IA if film doesn't work out are: Modelling Infectious Diseases Medical Data Mining Finger Ratio Predicts Maths Ability? Modelling a Nuclear War Are these good topics that could get a high mark? Between 18/20 to 20/20? I am also interested in a topic in healthcare/medicine. Any topic ideas for that? All replies are appreciated, Thanks.
  7. Hi, I am really desperately looking for an IA history topic, preferably concerning the Cold War. It should be a topic that could help me answer possible test questions. I am generally interested in a more anthropological aspect of history. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much
  8. Hey guys, I have a Math IA due on Sunday December 15, which is about 9 days from now. I want to do my topic on the golden ratio because firstly, I'm genuinely interested in it, and secondly, it's extremely risky to change topics at such a late stage. I know some of you will scold me for procrastinating on it but believe me I've legitimately been working on it. However, I'm having trouble finding an original idea based on the golden ratio. I did an introduction where I introduced it and such but I'm having trouble with how to proceed. I know it's supposed to be an exploration on a real-life thing because I looked at past IAs; even my teacher said that my topic is good but I have to find a way to make it unique since it's pretty redundant. Once I knew that, I tried looking online for IAs based on the golden ratio but to no avail. So now I'm appealing to anybody for ideas because I want to involve quite a bit of maths based on the syllabus AND I'm trying to make mine stand out. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  9. I've been asked to come up with an IA for Maths, and I was thinkng about combining a topic with DT as I wish to do product design at university. If anyone had any idea big or small it would be very useful.
  10. My teacher told me the biology ia has to involve the variables. i.e. the investigation must be about the effect of sth on sth. That doesn't sound right to me. Isn't it supposed to be an exploration related to ANYTHING we've covered in the course? I want to do an identification of lactobacilli in yogurt by DNA profiling. Is it possible that my teacher is mistaken? What about other restrictions on the choice of topic? DNA profiling tech is unavailable in my school lab. Is it ok to use more advanced equipment in outside labs? Or would it be considered beyond our level or even academically dishonest? Or, does it have to be a lab experiment at all? I heard about someone doing polygenic traits with computer simulations. Is that also acceptable? Could it be disadvantaged compared with a lab experiment and receive a lower score? P.S. How much time should I spend on my IA in all? I know the guide says 10 hrs but does it take longer in practice if I'm looking to achieve higher scores?
  11. For my IA this year, I was given the topic of exploring surface area and drag. The assessment requires me to produce a graph with a meaningful gradient. I am using the drag equation to formulate my graph (where Fd = 1/2 p u^2 Cd A) and when I plot drag force against area I get the gradient as (2 Cd/ pu^2). My question is if this gradient is useful? Surely the graph implies the the drag coefficient is a constant, but surface area is changing. Any improvements and/or changes to my possible graph would be much appreciated.
  12. Hi, I'll have to decide on our ia topics by tomorrow! I came up with 2 potential ia topics but can't decide which one to do: Does my city fit the multi-nuclei model? What factors affect the sphere of influence of the local supermarket/store? With the 1st one I'll need to find certain features in the, say 5-6, potential commercial centers in my city, and use the definitions to prove that they are indeed CBDs, and then piece them together. There're a few classmates with similar topics and we're supposed to go in groups, but still it might be pretty tough fieldwork? With the latter I'll first measure the sphere of influence, and then come up with affecting factors, like the types of goods they sell. Problem is, the effect of sth on sth is usually pretty relative, means there has to be a range of variables? Like I need to go from the grocery to the supermarket and to a department store? That would be too much for 2500 words. Has anyone done similar topics before? Any tips on that? Which one should I do??? Thanks a lot.
  13. Hi everyone, We were asked to think of math IA topics. I really enjoy doing origami as a hobby. I thought of investigating some topics such as Haga's theorem, or the ratio of an A paper (√2:1) Are these topics too simple or is there scope for investigation? Thanks!
  14. Helloooo I am really new to this but I really need help. I need to get my IA proposal done by this week but I'm still struggling. For my IA, I am planning on doing 'How does soil salinity affect the growth of mung beans?' I was going to collect soil from 5 different areas then calculate the ECe to determine the soil salinity then start planting. However, after I talked with my teacher, he suggested that there are too many uncontrolled variable and that I should just start out with the same soil then use salt water to increase the salinity. My problem is that I tried to search up how to make salt water and the amount needed for it to be normal but I am getting nothing. I am really not good in science. I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thank you
  15. This is a informative and detailed guiding document that give explanations and instructions for understanding and using descriptive statistics in Microsoft Excel. The file is divided into two parts - The first part explaining concepts and the second part giving instructions for how to use it in Excel. Note that this document only covers for: Quartiles Interquartile Range and Semi-Interquartile Range Outlier detection Standard deviation A description for the median will also be explained. As this file is aimed to help those who are doing their Psychology IA there is also a section about how to plot a column chart showing median/mean values with S.D/SIQR as error bars.
  16. Hello, Does anyone know what the word count for an ESS IA is and if there is any abstract required? Thank you very much
  17. I am not sure what I can do my chem ia but I was hoping to do something in relation to medicine if its possible. Do you guys have any ideas of something that I could do? I really need the help.

    Math IA Ideas

    Hey guys! I need some help finding some ideas to do for my Math IA. I take Math SL and I want to do something that correlates with medicine. Can you guys please help find something to do? I am very lost nad could really use the help.
  19. I want to do my IA on cantilevers using a wooden ruler (I know, overdone) but I'm having trouble formulating an actual question. I already know what variables I want to change, would my research topic just be something like, "the factors that effect the period of a cantilever" or something like that? Also, is there a way for me to make this appropriate for HL? Or if I want to do HL, should I do my IA on another topic entirely?
  20. Hi, guys. I am currently having a bit of trouble figuring out how to control oxygen concentration for the yeast and measure rate of respiration (based on carbon dioxide gas production) at the same time. If you have any ideas, please suggest how I could do this? I have never worked with oxygen before or tried adding a gas while measuring another. My biology teacher has told me that physically it may be difficult... But I feel like this is 10000x better than doing sucrose concentration. I have a few ideas such as isolating the yeast in a container with a specific oxygen concentration and having an aspirator/vacuum pump come out of it somehow for the carbon dioxide to be captured but I'm not sure how practical this is. In addition to that, how do I go about finding 'the best' oxygen concentrations for yeast? Do I just find the minimum oxygen concentration needed and then use values significantly higher/lower than that? I've researched that there's a point where that respiration will stop occurring in yeast if the oxygen concentration is too high. I was just wondering how I could go about finding this range/value. In addition to the above point, if this seems too difficult/impractical should I change my dependent variable? Should I measure the rate of respiration by the presence of another variable? Thanks, imperialbee
  21. Hi, I was wondering whether I could use business tools in my SL Business IA that aren't in the Business Management syllabus for SL as well as HL. If necessary, the tool I intend to use is Porter's Five Forces Analysis. I do SL Business Management. Thanks :)
  22. Hi, I'm doing my ia on the topic of women's rights movements and women's suffrage movements, can you guys check my possible question? are they contentious, doable, good questions? · to what extent the war challenged gender roles and to what degree society accepted them (everywhere/America/France/UK/WW1) · to what extent do the suffragette campaigns explain why women were given the vote in 1918 (UK) I also have backup questions: · to what extent was the LON a success (in the 1920's) · to what extent did President Truman help African Americans which one would be best???? Thanks!!!!!!!
  23. Hello guys, I need an interesting bio hl topic for my IA. I was thinking about something connected with allelopathy, for example, planting mint and cucumber near each other and measuring how the cucumber is affected, maybe adding different temperatures so it wouldn't seem so easy? or something with essential oils and how they affect the growth of different plants but I don't really know which I could choose. What do you guys think?
  24. I really need more answers for my survey, my IA deadline is soon, I hope you can fill out my survey really quick!!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe7IuEph8ScgYcmxBfkcb0tid41fV1i1mycGQ-WJdw5q2s2Zw/viewform?usp=sf_link Thank you for your time!
  25. Hi everyone, I am currently planning for my IA and the RQ is about the effect depth of water on the road and weight of a car have on dynamic friction. Is this topic worth investigating (I of course don't know the answer to my RQ)? Or should I find a better real life situation to connect it to? Thanks a lot!
