try "How did the [enter cause here] cause of the Berlin Blockade increase tension in the Cold War?"

And also "tension" might be a little broad.. try something more specific than just 'tension'

hey! i'm doing history EE "To what extent is Mussolini to blame for his overthrow in 1943?" But now it seems a lot too broad. any help?

Try 'to what extent is Mussolini's ____ policy to blame for Mussolini's overthrow in 1943"

Like narrow in on one of Mussolini's mistakes. To write about them all is too much.

im in the first year of the IB programme, and im pretty new to this, but what worries me is the topic for my extended essay ...

i was thinking about doing something related to science(physics) and cars, does any have any ideas??

That's much too broad for a topic.. there are many things you can do with a car in physics. Keep in mind though that many science EEs want an experiment (I think o.O).

Hey everyone. I'm new here and in my first year of IB. Wow, so many people are doing essays in English...I was going to do mine in English as well but I was afraid of "accidentally" plagiarizing..there are so many commentaries on every topic that you have to be extra careful to not repeat other ppl's words. Anyway, I decided to do my EE in biology but I haven't picked a topic yet. Does anyone know if you have to include experimentation in your essay? Can you solely do research?

Welcome aboard. I have to say that this is a really good, rather excellent site and the administrators here are just great.

Anyway, yes you do have to include your experimentation, since that is what the extended essay is primarily about. You might want to check the Biology Extended Essays around here and check any ideas.

Ok, thanks. :P My school's new IB coordinator is horrible...she has no idea about how we do our EEs and our teachers are too lazy to act as our supervisors.. ;) I was finally able to persuade my bio teacher to supervise my essay after practically begging :worship: The people on this site are really helpful and the links are useful too, except you have to be a VIP member to view most of them. I think I might submit a couple of my good lab reports that I did in chem to the site.

As a general tip to people getting started on EE's, even though it's probably fairly obvious, do something you are interested in, not that sounds easy or smart or that you think examiner's will like. I did mine on a topic I was really interested in and I found very fun, and it was still a bit of a pain writing the 4,000 words over the summer...

Also, I am hearing from a lot of people that they suggest comparing books for the EE if you are doing it in a language. No one told us that at our school, but somehow pretty much everyone ended up doing that anyway, so it must be easier.

By the way, how many people at your schools do math papers? Nobody in our class did, and apparently no one ever really has. ?

I was thinking about doing it in the Importance in Prime Numbers in Public-Key Cryptography and the implications of finding a a solution that reduces a number to its prime components :P

wow.... sounds interesting... but i suggest doing smthn in history or languages cuz u can guarantee the grade better

I am thinking of doing EE in Math - "The usage of logarithm in Richter Scale". Do you think it is good/bad? Kinda worry...

Too simplistic. I can't imagine there will be much you can say. I mean, what can you say? The Ritcher Scale is logarithmic ... it's kind of obvious...unless you're going to go into how they set the scale in the first place along with the damage done etc...but that mihgt go too much into Geog which you don't want to do because you're much better off doing a fieldwork Geog essay than research. another thing, what math will you apply with this title? a math EE often requires actual calculation.

I was thinking about doing it in the Importance in Prime Numbers in Public-Key Cryptography and the implications of finding a a solution that reduces a number to its prime components <_<

My friend did almost exactly this topic. She got a C. She's not a C student. At least, not in IB.

AFAIK it's a pretty hard topic to study. Especially if you go into all the technical stuff about it that might just sound like a load of waffle to the examiner who may not have any idea aobut cryptography, but could potentially make sense to someone with specialised knowledged. If you do you have to make it simple enough so that the examiner with no special knowledge in cryptography would be able to follow what you're saying. I'm not saying to not do it, but it's a hard topic.

I've always wanted to do mine in History. Unfortunately, I will not choose History for IB, because as a whole, I think Economics would be a better choice for me.

You can do it in History even if you don't do history.

This is good advice. I did a topic which bored my brains out, it was a real struggle to do it and actually commit time to it. I didn't set out to do a topic I disliked. Initially I wanted to do political geography, but then I was told that I couldn't. So I looked and found other interesting topics and they weren't good enough so I had to settle for the boring physical geographical title, looking at the water quality of a river. argh! I am telling you don't do that!

Hey everyone, I'm new to the site here and it definitely seems like a great place to be.

I'm finishing up my extended essay and the topic is as follows:

What effect did the muckrakers have on Progressive Era politics, economics, and social policies? That's my basic question but it basically goes in depth, talking about four journalists and how their articles helped influence the Theodore Roosevelt administration into passing laws that essentially defined the Progressive Era.

I'm going to write about the apartheid in South Africa and to what extent the culture influenced the outcome.I will refer to Nelson Mandela's autobiography and Alan Paton's Cry, The Beloved Country. I also plan to include the meaning of Rugby. Especially the World Cup 1995 when the Springbok won the championship and Mandelar gave Captain Pienaar the Cup.

i am doing my EE in chemistry...i want to know how to measure the browning in apples...i want to know how we can quantitatively measure the browning or the rate of browning in apples??

PLEASE HELP!!!

take the apple, put some saran wrap over the exposed part, and put it on a scanner

then you can use blur or some other effect to get the average RGB values of the color :P

I know, it's really long and stupid for figuring out an apple's color, but it's all I got

On another note, my essay is gonna be in Math...But I'm not sure what specifically

I'm interested in the physical and practical applications of math, as well as computers, and programming

Please help?

I really like to talk about religion, so I was centering mine around the actions of the church against any type of scientifical advancment in Galileo Galilei's era, around the Dark Ages, were his works were all banned from the public because he was going against the geocentric model, earth at the middle of the universe, which the church believed in with all its power, and if in fact this new heliocentric model was real, then the church would be seen as teaching wrong ideas, therefore they had Galileo jailed in house arrest till his death.
