  1. IA rough drafts are due within the next few days, so, being the procrastinator I am, I just started my rough draft this past week. This is my first time writing an IA and my first time writing a math Paper. My paper is over the probabilities of different autoimmune diseases and evaluating a possible connection between autoimmune diseases (if you have 1, are you more likely to have another?). I am in severe need of assistance, so here is my intro: "While considering my own interests and experiences I realized the probabilities of my own life and conditions. I have an number of autoimmune diseases: type 1 diabetes, Celiac Disease, and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. There is no one I have met who has these three diseases, as I do, so I began to wonder what the probability of possessing them is and if, perhaps, having one autoimmune disease makes an individual more susceptible to another." Any advice is appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  2. Im planning on doing either effects of different glucouse concentration on cellular respiration (CO2 production), or effects of different substrates on cellular respiration (CO2 production) using glucose maltose fructose sucrose. I will be using yeast to create the CO2. Teacher wants me to branch this idea and take it to a more unique level. My questions: 1. I know that this is probably overdone, but I am struggling due to lack of creativity to vary this simple (?) experiment procedure and make it unique enough for the reader. 2. Is it acceptable to state that my curiosity came from learning the cellular respiration concept in-class and wanting to apply and see the concept at play in a real world application Not asking for someone else to come up with something necessarily, but just really struggling so any suggestions will be valuable to me. Thanks a lot!
  3. Hi guys, So my friend is deciding to replicate an old IB math exploration. I was against it but she said it wouldn't matter. The old ib exploration scored a high grade and it was on motion. She's gonna do motion too in another sport similar to the previous one with her own data though. Same format and general ideas and calculations throughout but again, her own data. Would this count as plagiarism? Also, the old IA didn't get sampled. It got 20/20 in 2014. Would this be detected on turnitin? Basically it's a complete replication of what was found in the IA using different numbers and different wording, just the same format and order and ideas.
  4. My math class has been assigned our IA's this past month. I'm wondering what kind of math processes would fit my topic best. the question is "Is there a correlation between number of drunk teen drivers and the total number of alcohol related crashes?" Although I'm not even sure if correlation would fit this best. I have to have the math portion of my IA done Wednesday so I'd really appreciate some helpful feedback.
  5. Hello guys, So for my engagement I'm doing an analysis of the impacts of the free education policy in Tanzania. What do you think the best engagement would be? Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone, Our teacher is asking us to finalize our IA topic and I decided to do something in tourism (in Singapore). So is this topic okay: "How does the number of tourists affect the number of local people in Orchard Road, Singapore?" Is this topic okay? Or too broad? I wanted to do something in tourism, so I was also thinking of a few other topics such as "How does public transport affect the number of tourists in X area"
  7. Dear Sir's/ Madam, I am currently struggling to derive a suitable Math IA topic for my Math Sl course. My teachers say choose something personal, that interests you. I am very interested in language and literature. Are there any Math IA topics that are associated with language and literature? Thank you in advance.
  8. Hey guys! There's the biology IA that I need to do and I've been trying to find topics for it that are interesting, and that seem simple to do. If you guys have any ideas, any advice or even any websites where I can get information and some ideas for my IA. I take standard level Biology, if that contributes to anything. Thank you so much for your help.
  9. Hey, I need to collect data of many students for my Maths IA and would be really glad if some people could quickly fill it out. It's completely anonymous and only takes around 1 minute to complete:)
  10. Hi everyone, I found an interesting maths IA topic that really interests me but found out that someone is using the same topic for her extended essay. So can I use the same topic for my IA? Thank You!!
  11. I'm looking for real data on bacterial growth that I can use to create a model (i.e. population density or population count vs time). Are there any reliable databases, websites, books, or papers where I can find such a set of data? Thanks!
  12. Hi! I am currently designing my Biology IA experiment to hopefully conduct this week. I am sure that I want to investigate the affect temperature has on blood pressure because I have my own electric blood pressure cuff. My dilemma is that there are many different ways I could study this relationship and all of my methodology ideas so far have been shot down by my teacher. I would really like to see some decent ideas that can help me better develop the ideas I already have. I know there are many risks I have to be aware of because I am using human subjects and that I also need to control the group of people I choose (gender, weight, etc.) These are what I have already asked my teacher about: -Having my friends over at my house for a few hours and I could change the temperature of my house slightly then test their blood pressures (just a time and control of subjects) -I could put the subjects in my car one at a time and change the A/C and heat of my car then record the temperature of the interior using a probe thermometer (my teacher had a concern of carbon monoxide poisoning even though I was going to do this outside anyway) I know there are so many factors that I would have to control like: what they ate that day, their exercise level, etc. It would be great if I could get eliminate the human subjects factor all together but with my topic that would be impossible. Any and all feedback on my ideas so far or possibly new ones would be greatly appreciated
  13. How strict is the 6-12 page limit for science IA's? Will the moderator just stop reading at 12 pages and pretend like the rest doesn't exist. And do title pages in that page limit?
  14. Hello, in a few weeks, my math I.A. is due and for it to be completed I need candidates to fill out a google form. It will take no less than 5 minutes and your completion of the form is necessary for my I.A. If you guys have any feedback afterwards feel free to reply to this post. Below is the link to the google form: Your help is greatly appreciated by a fellow IB student that is in a rush, thank you

  16. Hey there, does anyone know the work count/page limit for the Maths Studies IA this year? I've been reading up about it and it keeps changing every year so now I'm super confused. My teacher told me it was 12 pages, but teachers from the other sets have said that there is no limit... can anyone help with this??? please
  17. I am including an appendix of a map of the area I am discussing in my historical investigation. Additionally, I am considering putting in a table of data here. The problem is that I'm not quite sure how to cite these properly. My plan was to put them after the bibliography and then in the paper, when I have in-text citations in footnotes, I put next to them, "(See Appendix A/B)". Is this the proper way? Or should I put the footnote directly next to the appendices even though the appendix comes after the bibliography? Thank you!
  18. Hi, Could you please fill out this short 2 min (max) survey? Thank you for your help.
  19. Hi everyone! I am a DP2 student and our Math teacher has started talking about our IA. My main idea is to compare acceptance rates of for an example, top 100 colleges in the US for Econ (which I want to study) and then compare it to the median salaries graduates get from those unis. I want to see if there's any correlation between the two in order to figure out whether I should apply for highly selective schools. If the correlation is not that high, then it doesn't really make sense for me to apply to them as the return will be the same if I go to a moderately selective school. I would construct a regression line and everything. My main question is - is this too simple of a concept for Math SL? I want to add a more complex concept that would fit in with the topic, but I can't think of anything. Do you have any ideas that might help me? For an example, I thought about constructing a utility value curve or something, but after discussing it with my teacher, we figured that it wouldn't work. She suggested constructing some pie charts, but it sounds like that would be way too simple. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me as this is due by the end of the month. Thanks!
  20. Would finding the surface area of a hyperbolic paraboloid surface be a good enough topic for Math HL IA? I figured that I could use a pringle chip as my main reference for measurements and I could evaluate on the different ways I can approach the calculation (i.e. instead of using hypothetical measurements to find out the a and b variables of the hyperbolic equations I could graph out the x,y, and z plane individually and find out the variables from there). This involves multivariable calculus which is a topic that is outside of the syllabus, but I'm afraid that it will be too short of an exploration as all I'm doing is calculating the surface area of the shape. If anyone wants to chime in and give any advice that would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Hi guys. For my biology IA topic, I decided to focus on genetics and the subtopic would be inheritance. I have a few ideas on what to focus on but I need to narrow it down. So here are some of my ideas: Investigate on genetic diseases. Find the correlation between the variables that led to a specific genetic disease. Investigate a specific gene that led to a genetic disease. Focus on dominant/recessive alleles and how they affect generations of families I was thinking to choose between with family genes or plant genes. What should I focus on? Hope you guys can help me
  22. Hi! Please help me! I want to do my Math IA on something involving Korea and/or K-pop!!!!! I have no idea if I am allowed though to use as I'm not even sure where to find info for!
  23. I'm in history HL in a very small class with a very under-qualified teacher, and if I'm honest, I don't trust his judgement on my IA topic. The topic I proposed was: "To what extent did the Battle of Stalingrad force Hitler out of Russia?". I've also been considering similar topics such as "How impactful was the outcome of the Battle of Stalingrad on Germany?" I am really interested in this topic (and the Wehrmacht's time in the USSR in general) but I don't know if this is too specific, not specific enough, overdone, or even viable as an IA topic. He sort of just said "yeah okay" without giving any criticism or really any comments with substance. Would really like some feedback ASAP, thanks!
  24. I am trying to do a Math HL calculus IA on the flute and my outline is due in two days. I started by measuring the distance to the first open hole for each note fingering and graphing it on the x axis with frequency of the notes on the y axis. This gave me a quadratic function that can be differentiated to find the change in frequency with respect to distance (df/dD). I was hoping the differentiation would be a bit complicated but it's just the power rule since I got a quadratic. I am now trying to use related rates to find another rate of change, but I can't think of one that would be relevant. I was thinking of doing something with the volume of air required in relation to the distance to the first hole: dV/dD = dV/df x df/dD However, this would be way too simple. The variables I could change include length of the tube, volume of air, embouchure size, air speed and lung capacity. If anyone can suggest a way to salvage this idea, I would appreciate it. If I can't find a way to make this work I will probably cry myself to sleep because it's the only semi-good idea I've had.
  25. For context - SL student Hi guys, my school just started the chem IA process. I have a few (rather weak) topic ideas for experimental investigations, but would prefer to do a database ia because I'm lowkey terrible at lab work. My teacher also hasn't really told us how to go about developing methodology and approach so I'm a little clueless. Any examples of database IAs I can view? Also, how do you go from the initial topic idea to developing a methodology and approach? Do you look for existing experiments and modify their procedures? Finally, is there anywhere I can look for topic STIMULUS? (not topics, I'm not that lazy, but interesting chem things that could spark some ideas) Any advice is much appreciated
