  2. Your supervisor knows best. Maybe delve into synthetic biology usage for detecting bacteria? Look up iGEM - international genetically engineered machine. It's a collegiate competition that employs students to come up with ingenious ways to tackle humanity's biggest problems. A lot of the projects end up using synthetic biology and electronics to detect certain diseases. Recently, I helped develop a machine that worked with salmonella. It used restrictive digest to cut out a gene in the salmonella so it would uptake a gene that we wanted it to - a gene that would make it produce a red fluoresce

  3. answered the survey! (this is very random but pls help me out) hey guys lol, I basically chose golden ratio in art (i know very basic) but I'm seriously not the best in Math and I just chose this because why not, i didn't expect this to be so overused. My IA is due very soon and I'm basically making my own art using the golden ratio for personal engagement as well. this is basically my investigation: I will pick samples of paintings, 3 paintings which do not fulfill the golden ratio and 3 paintings which use golden ratios, as well as two paintings I have made

  4. i find that in my school IB students tend to clump together in "packs." I think that in general, because we share so many classes together IB students tend to hang out with exclusively IB students with some mingling between regular students. In my school people seem to really take pride in the fact that they are part of the IB program and i sometimes feel as if it's very exclusive. Does anyone feel the same? Or is it different?

  5. The title is pretty much self-explanatory (lol) but if not, this is a post about writing an a1 language ee, primarily focused on english obviously, and based largely on personal experience. If you have any questions about this post (turned out longer than I expected!) or the ee itself, send me a message. Also, if you have a draft and are looking for feedback, I might be able to help. Ground rules first - you need to have a good grasp of your the language you are writing your extended essay (latin and ancient greek possibly excepted) -- and this probably means a good grade in the relevant class

  10. no they arent, how is that sexism? i find it funny how you were able to relate those two things do you even know how high 10 cm above the knee is? who would want a bunch of half naked girls walking around school as for the boys if shorts go 10 cm above the knee, they shouldnt be called shorts; more like boxers or underwear and pretty sure none of the men wear only underwear to school maybe a cultural thing in japan...

  11. Excuse me for saying this, but I found so many things that are wrong with your arguments. First, I think you are really misusing the word "confidence". Humbleness and confidence are not opposite to each other. In fact, both of them are ones of those qualities that make up an ideal person. On the other hand, arrogance and humbleness are 'mutually exclusive' (i.e. you can't be humble and arrogant at the same time). Arrogant people would think highly of themselves. Confident people would not! Look, confidence isn't a black & white thing. A guy may be very confident at public speaking,

  12. I'm all for gender equality, and I think there is a plethora of issues that need to be addressed. In most modern societies, there are laws in place which set standards for gender equality. This is what I believe is the foundation of gender equality, social attitudes and perceptions will change slowly, and over generations. Having said that, I would definitely not label myself a feminist. Whilst the core principles of the movement strive for equality, I feel a large part of its more extreme adherents propagate a negative message. They have opinions that are very gynocentric and alienat

  13. Well this pretty much sets me back to square one. I was considering the SEIR model, as having the SIR as a first model, and then the SEIR model as a second model in the exploration. I was thinking of taking it the route of modelling the spread of "zombie apocalypse" but that has no practical use or anyway to prove or disprove a model. For the Hardy Weinberg principle, was that a HL IA? I am looking at the growth of tumours as well. There seem to be different types of models there. I would have to somehow derive these models for a good exploration, correct? I may need to find some patient

  14. I think people exaggerate how much work IB actually is. Honestly, it's not that bad. You'll have time to go out/be in a relationship and keep up with your work. most people on here seem to be saying pretty much the same thing: find a balance. If you're with your girlfriend/boyfriend ALL the time and don't do ANY work, then obviously you're not going to stay on top of school. But if you're working ALL the time and don't have ANY social life then you're missing out on loads of teenager-ey stuff. My advice is don't just do one or the other -- both are important. But make sure you manage your time

  15. Hypothetical question: if there was a woman who could perform as well as men, could she be accepted to the special forces in your opinion? Yes, she should be, but I mean on an average, women just cannot perform as well. Though the exceptional cases should definitely be accepted. Going along with this idea, it's generally true that men are physically stronger than women due to biological and physiological reasons. There are exceptions, yes, but overall a woman isn't going to be as strong as a man or have the same endurance levels. As an example, many of the armed forces in the U.S. have re

  16. As much as I believe in gender equality, I find it hard to accept the term 'feminism' because of the connotation many women have given to it throughout the years. Don't get me wrong, but nowadays there are many women who use feminism as an excuse for a special treatment. Even in my limited experience of things, I've come across many women who were not too scrupulous when insulting the other gender. Why is this acceptable? Does an empowered woman really have the right to pigeonhole all males as "stupid pigs"? Maybe if we started calling it "equality", some individuals would not use it as a jus

    This is my Mathematics SL Internal Assessment, which scored a 20/20 in the May 2014 exam session. It is a project centering on the modeling of the segment of a roller coaster. It was a real pain in the ass and it took a lot of time. Take into account it is way over the page recommendation IB imposes, but was not sanctioned. Please review!

    This is an essay I wrote from one of the "possible essay questions" mentioned in the IB Companion. I received a 95%; therefore, the information is useful for helping in setting up a psychology essay for the exam, specifically concerning the Biological Level of Analysis
