  2. Whether there is a correlation between amount of sleep and reaction time? Hello, I would really appreciate it if you could do this mini game on reaction time ( http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime )and record the 5 different numbers you get. Afterwards, comment those five different numbers with the number of hours you sleep on average every night.it's really important this is for my math studies ia Thankyou!
  3. Hi everyone, My research question for my IA is: What is the correlation between the number of hours of sleep and academic performance in mathematics? I know with this I will be able to get more points in personal engagement but I'm worried it's too simple for mathematical knowledge and I'm afraid my teacher might reject this topic. Are there any ways to increase the complexity of the topic and what kinds of maths/equations would I be able to do with the statistics/data I collect? Thank you in advance for your help!
  4. Hey my teacher just told me that you should never ever stay up at night and that it's crazy. Do you guys agree? Because sometimes I stay up all night but I don't really think I'm crazy. Also if you do believe staying up all night is crazy are here any situations which justify staying up all night? Thanks, BongSoldier OUT.
  5. http://goo.gl/forms/vA4l96uHBW Hello all! I am running a survey for my Math Studies IA, and I hope all of you guys can fill this form out! Try to answer as honestly as you can, because all the data I receive will be anonymous. Thank You!! http://goo.gl/forms/vA4l96uHBW
  6. So has anyone here skipped grades and also done the IB program? I'm 15 and going to just have turned 16 when I (hopefully) get my IB diploma and unsurprisingly it's unbelievably stressful. Being able to do coursework at a more advanced level doesn't give me some magical ability to do a ton more of that work. What are your experiences related to stress? How much sleep do you manage to get compared to other people in the IB program?
  7. Personally, I usually sleep at around 12 or 1 AM and get up at 7:30. (6-7 hours). During the weeks that I have an exceptional amount of work (usually around when each quarter ends), I'll be up until 2 or 3 though. I know some students who somehow finish their work early and are in bed by 10 PM, though. Yet somehow, they do pretty decently in school, despite not being overly intelligent.
  8. Hello all, (Sorry if I'm doing something wrong here. I'm kinda new.) I'm doing my extended essay in Biology. It involves changes to the hamsters' sleep-wake cycle as an independent variable. However, I'm not sure of the extent to which I can disturb the sleep patterns of hamsters without going against the animal experimentation policy/seeing a fall in my EE grade. Obviously I'm not going to keep the hamster awake for 24 hours. But is a little sleep deprivation (say, 1 or 2 hours) passable? How about just a mere shift in their sleep cycle (say, they sleep and wake up 1-2 hours later than they're used to)? I know that one of the sample Bio EEs circulating the internet has done something similar, involving 1-hour light pulses. Is it okay if I use that procedure? Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi. I am a Year 2 IB student, and I'm planning on doing my EE on Psychology. I have a topic, but I would like to hear some advice on it before I start planning. - I don't know where to start. How can I plan my essay? - Is my research question too vague? Research Question: “How does sleep deprivation affect one’s psychological health?" Thanks!
  10. Edit: IA handed in, thanks for all the responses! Hi guys - so my friend doesn't have an account here so posting it on her behalf. She's doing a math exploration about whether there's a correlation between sleep and grades. If you're currently in IB2 (class of 2016) and have your predicted grades, could you please fill this two-question survey? Thank you ^~^ https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3WG9ZLM Results collected are anonymous.
  11. Hi Guys As you probably know, being an IB student, taking hard IB subjects (like literature, Hl math, physics or sciences) means quote heavy sleep deprivation and sleeping really little on a daily basis, even on weekends. I've gone many long nights doing work and I would stay up all night doing work if I could and weren't so tired during the day. All the lack of sleep made me think: Should we eliminate sleep in the future? I mean about 1/3 of all our life is devoted to sleep (8 hours a day average), so if scientists focus on a way so that we don't have to sleep any longer and don't have any negative consequences, it would be the equivalent of living about 30 years longer. Imagine how much more things you could do. Or even just reducing the amount of time the body needs for sleep? Should we try to eliminate sleep? What are your ideas on this? Thank you for your responses! -ncarmont
  12. How do you guys stop this procrastination ****?? Feel free to share humorous anecdotes as well
  13. Hi, Im trying to collect data for my Maths IA and I would really appreciate if you could fill out the poll!
  14. Hi! Could any current middle school / high school / university student possibly answer to my survey for my Internal Assessment? https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9QGWBFV It's about the impact of the amount of sleep on grades/academic performance. Thanks in advance. Also, if you find something unclear, some mistakes, or come to the conclusion that something could be improved in the survey feel free to write about it. I want to make it as clear as possible since I'm going to ask some non-native English speakers from my school to complete it as well.
  15. Hi, I'm supposed to be working over my math IA over the winter break, and I'm planning to do a stats IA to see the correlation between sleep deprivation and anxiety, since we'd be very familiar with the two things. By "anxiety", I'm asking specifically about feelings of worry, uneasiness, or nervousness to the point where it affects your ability to function. It can be anything from mild (ie: not being able to focus) to moderate (ie: feeling nauseous) to severe (ie: hyperventilating). So for the survey: 1. How many hours of sleep do you get on an average school night? 2. Do you experience any anxiety from lack of sleep? Rate your anxiety from 0 to 10. 3. How many hours of sleep do you get when you have a test the next day? 4. Does your anxiety get worse during test days? Rate your anxiety from 0 to 10. All names will be anonymous. Thanks!
  16. Ever since this semester started, I feel exhausted because I never get enough sleep... I only sleep an average of 6 hrs per night, and apparently that's not enough for my body and brain to function properly Maybe I don't have enough self-discipline to stick to a regular sleep pattern, maybe I'm depressed, I don't know... The point is I really want to increase the amount of sleep I get. But it's also a problem of finding time to study. I wake up at 6.00 and return home at 17.30, sometimes even at 6.30, and obviously I never feel like studying right after getting home... I'm such a pro at procrastinating I've always been getting good grades so far, but I want to give my best in all my subjects and I feel that I can't do it unless I start sleeping more. Does anyone else have the same problem as me?
  17. Hello! So, I'm doing this survey for my maths studies project, and it's on sleep in IB. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LG66TDY I'd really appreciate it if you could fill the survey, and share it with any IB students (or former IB students) you know. It shouldn't be hard, and I need to have everything ready by the 2nd of October. Thank you!
  18. Hello all. I'm having trouble formulating my RQ. I have something along the lines of " how does sleep affect the brain"? I'm wondering if the RQ is too broad. I'm also contemplating on changing the term brain to mind - is this wise? I have something about the stages of sleep and how different substances affect the brain and its ability to fall asleep. I don't have any specific studies which is scaring me... EEG is also a part of my initial notes. Any suggestions/help? I'll be adding more questions on this thread when I come up with new questions to ask. Thank you. EDIT: Sorry about the title, I didn't realize that I forgot to put the topic there. - > okay it's there now.

    I Sacrifice.......

    Basically, this is to all the stuff we sacrifice as IB students. Let's try mentioning just ONE thing you sacrifice for IB. We all sacrifice a lot more. Starting with me, I sacrifice family time because of IB.
  20. Is there a correlation between the amount of sleep and facebook hours a student at George Mason High school? I have a lot of data for it...but I don't know, I feel like it's a little too simple? Should I somehow include gender? Thanks!
  21. I just completed my first all nighter with school in an hour. I had to crack down two biology lab reports and a Works in Translation essay. I used a can of red bull and had a bottle of Evian to sort of "balance it out" in a psychosomatic view. I just want to know what are your experiences with all nighters, have you done many? Were they productive? Is a frequent occurrence? Do you benefit from it? I'm apprehensive to find out how the whole day will pan out. Will be interesting!
  22. There's a saying that's been floating around for years now that says in the IB you are presented with three things and can only choose 2: sleep, good marks and a social life. I was wondering if this were true at all. How much sleep do you get and how are your marks/social life?
