How good is this IA topic? "Investigating the effect of increasing concentration on the rate of reaction between sulfuric/hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate." Are there any possible improvements to this topic? Like is this possible to do? If not, what are some changes I could make?
I am currently in Business Management SL but will be taking HL next year and for my IA topic, I am choosing my dad's smoke shop. Is this an appropriate topic? I feel like it isn't and I'm gonna fail when it comes to the IB scores. Please help, thank you so much!!!
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?
