The IB and spoons.

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the thread, and greetings! I am Frizzy! Consider me a human, a dinosaur, or even IB student. Possibly all three at the same time.

I have created this thread for a few reason. Firstly, I wanted to create a thread to help give and overview of what the IB is. Then there's the fact that today is speech day and I have nothing better to do (No chance to sit down and go full on with homework). And finally there's the fact that I let my mind wander and have found myself focussing quite a lot on kitchen utensils, specifically spoons.

So I thought to myself, "What if I could describe the entire IB using spoons!?"

And so I am here, doing my best to define each IB course using everyone's favourite table-side tool.

Economics- How cost efficient is it to produce more spoons into a spoon deprived market? How does the sale of spoons have an effect on the way money flows?

History- Where did spoon come from? Who invented the spoon? What effect did spoons have on World War II?

Chemistry- What is the chemical formula for the reaction that occurs when placing a spoon into H2SO4?

Physics- Explain how different shapes of spoon fall at different rates. Then give a full report on exactly what took place in each experiment.

Enviromental Systems & Societies- What is the effect of spoon production on pollutants? Would cutting spoon production aid against the environmental crisis?

Biology- Identify and cultivate the bacteria of an unwashed spoon used for breakfast. Study them over the course of the week then give an in-depth analysis.

ToK- Is a spoon really as spoon? How do we know that? When does a spoon stop being a spoon and become a knife?

That's all I got for now, speech day break just ended! See you all soon!

Visual arts: Do a 10 page investigation about spoons, find an artist who draws spoons, then create a 5m x 10m oil painting of said spoon
