  1. Hi, I need help with my Physics IA topic. I was deciding on conducting my investigation on Hooke's law and springs. I was thinking of investigating the effect of the length of the spring on the spring constant. Another idea I had was investigating that if a spring with a spring constant of k was cut into four equal springs, would the spring constant of each spring be 4k. I was told by my Physics teacher that this would make a good IA if I was able to explain it correctly, however, I am still unsure. Would this be a good physics IA topic, is there anyway I could expand on the experiment, or should I look for a better investigation? Anything would help Thank You in Advance!!!

    Help with self-studying

    Hello, I am currently self-studying three* subjects for May 2019 as I want to apply for German Universities, for which I needed subjects that my school does not offer. Before registering me with my subjects: Math HL: Option Calculus (self-studied as my school olny offered math studies), Physics HL: Option Engineering Physics (completely self-studied with support from an IB teacher from another school), English B HL (with extra work as my School only offered sl and support from my teacher), History HL, Environmental Systems and Societies SL and Spanish A: Literature SL, I sent a mail to IB Support. Their reply was that the IB has no policy against taking subjects not offered by my school as long as my School supports me with this action. I have been working on this since August and, as for now, I have covered at least 70% of the syllabus from each one of the three subjects I study and worked in my Internal Assessments for each one so that I can have time to practice for External Assessment. Now, my concerns are that I may be missing some paperwork owing to the fact I have no teacher, such as 4PSOW from which I knew nothing until a week ago. I have the guide for each subject but sometimes it is difficult to read and remember everything. I am worried that something I am not expecting could happen and I cannot solve it. Has any of you self-studied mathematics or a science before? Do I need to make alone experiment planning and documentation alone? Could any of you share a list of document requirements for the IB for Physics and Maths HL? Can use an interdisciplinary experiment with an University as Group 4 Project? Any comment that you think could help me is welcomed. Thanks you all for your time. I hope I accurately described my situation. Best Regards Daniel Meza *It is difficult to explain as self-studying means different things for each one of them. Basically, I changed 3 subjects to options not offered in my school
  3. Commentary: One of the world’s most important jobs has put the U.S. in great danger by increasing national debt, causing unemployment to be at its lowest, and increasing interest rates. Despite the tax cuts, Trump has increased his import and export tariff expenses causing multiple debt situations. According to this article, this debt is caused by poor decision making from the president and minor setbacks that cause major debt. Analysis: Under President Donald Trump’s administration, the United States government debt has grown faster than any other former president’s administration. Since 2012, the national debt has grown over $5 trillion, from $16.7 trillion in 2013 to $21.9 trillion in 2018! By the end of Trump’s term it is expected the debt will increase by another $4.4 trillion. The national debt has grown by 6.6 percent since Trump took office in 2017. Much of this was accrued during Trump’s first year in office. Despite unemployment rates being at their lowest and a booming economy, this is the fastest growing rate of the national debt in our country’s lifetime. The irony is one of his platform points was he would reduce the national debt. His defense is we haven’t yet felt the impact of the corporate tax cut, which was supposed to open opportunities for corporations to invest money in the US and boost our economy. The government sets the value of the dollar and the base interest rate. When the national debt increases, the interest rates increase, and the higher the interest rate, the more consumer debt is incurred. This is good for the government because when they have higher interest rates on the consumers, the more other countries invest in our country. Other countries want to invest at this point because they get a higher return on investment. For example, if the interest rate increases, the demand for homes decreases since the monthly payments will be higher so the price of homes would go down [Graph 1]. As a result, the supply for furniture would decrease and the price of furniture would increase because there will be low demands for homes [Graph 2].This exemplifies of how national debt can cause problems so small that can affect the economy. Graphs Graph 1 When the Demand for houses decreases, prices will also decrease for houses Graph 2 When the supply for furniture will decrease but the price for furniture will increase Unemployment Rates- The percentage of unemployed workers in the total labor force. Interest Rates- The proportion of a loan that is charged as interest to the borrower, typically expressed as an annual percentage of the loan outstanding. Investment- purchase of goods that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth. Evaluation In the long run, the interest rates are increasing so people spend less amounts of money on products and, the supply along with unemployment, increases at a impactful rate which causes a recession. The national debt will increase because with higher interest rates job wages will increase. In the short run, since the interest rates are going up many people will decide to use substitute goods, and stop buying stock and complementary goods. The national debt will still be active because the small issues like the wall building for example only causing an increase in more debt on subsidies or government spendings. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-12-12/u-s-debt-under-trump-has-swelled-by-size-of-brazil-s-economy
  4. Hey! I have just finished my draft of the Mathematics SL Exploration. I showed it to my teacher and he said that I have to put double space and separate my calculations from the text. I told that if I do that I will exceed 12 pages. Though, he contends that it is okay. Is it really so? In Maths guide there is nothing on double space and all that stuff that we have in EE. Plus it is explicitly written that exploration must fit into the range of 6-12 pages. So I am confused whether I have to do what the guide is saying or what my teacher claims to be true. Help, please!

    Psychology IA number of feedback?

    Hello, I would like to know how many times is my IB Psychology teacher allowed to give me feedback? Is the maximum number of written and oral feedback different? Can my Psychology teacher give feedback on all my IA drafts regardless of the number of drafts? I tried to find the information via google but failed to do so. Any link to some reliable source where it answers my question would be really appreciated though I would gladly accept any answers regardless of whether it's backed up with some source or not ☺️

    Company for B&M HL IA

    Hello, guys! I am currently working on my research project in Business & management HL. I know exactly, that I want to investigate the relationship between staff motivation and efficiency of the company. I have already gathered plenty of information about motivation and efficiency, but I still do not have any company to work on. Can you give some tips, advice on how/where I should search for possible organizations and what I should take into account when making my choice? I am looking forward to your replies^^
  7. Is finding the derivative of trigonometric/circular functions, like the sine and cosine functions, part of the Math SL syllabus? Is this the level of Math SL or is it more advanced? I'm thinking of doing this in my calculations for my IA. Would it work?
  8. Hi! I was wondering if anyone could look over my History IA question and offer any criticism or concerns that they notice. I've been kinda struggling to get this question to sound good and I'm worried that it could be too judgemental... The question is: "To what extent did Andrew Jackson fulfill his received title of the people’s president?"

    History IA about Suez Crisis

    I'm doing history HL nd I am interested in doing my History IA about the effect of the Suez crisis on ending the British Empire. Is this a good topic? Is it overdone? Thanks in Advance
  10. 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!

    Checklist for Biology IA-HL

    This is a handy checklist to use while writing your Bio HL IA. It has all those small detail that you may easily gain marks from putting in your IA.
  12. 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.
  13. I have just finished my product for my ITGS IA. I am doing a DTP software using photoshop. However, my client gave me pictures that can be found in the internet. I absolutely have no idea about this. What should I do? Please help!

    MATHS IA VECTORS (video games)

    Hi! So, I have been thinking of possible Maths IA topics for quite a while and have just decided to do it on Vectors (because I'm relatively better at it?). I have heard that quite a few game developers utilise vectors during the game development process, and so it would be in my greatest interest to base my IA on vectors in video games. However, I'm not quite sure on how to go about writing this. I have a basic outline of the structure of my IA (start with 2D then advance to 3D), but I'm starting to worry that it may not be as good as a topic as I hoped it would be. Could someone tell me if this is a feasible topic? What should I do to maybe add more depth to this investigation? Thank you!
  17. Hey guys, can someone please let me know the format of the front page and the other content pages of Business Management HL IA? If possible, please show me an example of the BM IA format. Thank you!
  18. I've been generally panicking about things I've noticed in my IA (which has already been submitted ). I just noticed that I forgot to include an in-text citation for where I got my method from. I used Kjheldahl's method for analysing proteins, and while I gave credit to Johan Kjheldahl for making the method, I didn't state the source I found this information from in the body of text (it's in the works cited though). I also have several instances of using knowledge from the syllabus without citing it. Should I have cited my textbook? I need to put my mind at ease because I'm really worried it could be deemed academic malpractice. Does the severity of infringement decide the punishment? I didn't copy and paste anything, and I'm quite sure my turnitin percentage is quite low, so could the punishment be less severe? i.e I get a 0 for the IA, but can still be eligible for diploma. Sorry for the long post! I can feel my life shortening with every IB panic attack, so I tend to ramble.
  19. Hey! I am writing my first article for IA from Microeconomics. I know that I have to focus on this particular unit (not brining up other topic from our syllabus). I am not sure whether what I want to describe is clearly a micro-case. It's an article about imposition of minimum wage in Ontario, the potential effect of which would be job losses. As the topic is a microeconomic one, I'm not sure whether the solution that I aim to propose is (unemployment is a part of MACROeconomy in the syllabus). I was thinking about offering subsidies to firms to increase the production and therefore, the demand for workers? But I'm not sure. Thanks for your opinions

  21. Hey guys, I recently started planning out my chemistry SL IA. I was thinking of using different materials and analyzing how they affect the calorimeter. I was thinking of linking this to the thermodynamics module. I was thinking for example of using styrofoam cups, metal, plastic. Do you think this would be a viable analysis, as I'm wondering if there really is something to analyze here... thanks a lot, Cyril

    Math IA HL help

    hey guys, is it a good idea for me to do the laplace transform for my Math HL IA? I'll base it on simple harmonic motion of bungee jumping, and I need your feedbacks whether this is a good topic or not. There will be some out of the syllabus stuff, but it involves integration by parts, algebra and some basic stuff. I'm displaying the concept in an amateur way. Thoughts?

    Maths IA survey

    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:) https://goo.gl/forms/D5HvaJpxtSFxZdgt1
  25. So, basically me and my coordinator as well as my principal aren't in the best of terms, i was retaking my IB2 year and they decided that I shouldn't retake any classes and as well as my finals. But I know that I can still retake my subjects. Since they didn't want me to do so they will not accept any Internals from me, even though the deadline the school has has yet not passed. Should I get in touch with the IBO or let it be? Subject in matter: psychology and economics
