  1. Hi! I also take higher, and one website that honestly made me understand certain topics (Equilibrium, for example) in a way that it clicked in my mind is Khan Academy. Its basically a collection of videos about every subject we need to know for chem. Its super useful and I highly recommend them. You can also find the vids on youtube. www.khanacademy.org Good luck!
  2. Hi! Here's a few books that could help with your EE topic - The boy in the striped pajamas - In WWII Germany, the main character is a Nazi's son, the other character is in a concentration camp. Othello - The differences between Othello and Iago - there's a lot to talk about it. For example, Othello has a higher position, so he speaks in verse, while Iago mostly speaks in prose (its by Shakespeare) The Great Gatsby - New rich vs old rich vs poor vs in-between characters. Also gets interesting with the differentiation of the characters through the use of color. The Book Thief - What's interesti
  3. I also opted for revision guides - they are really useful to use on top of the books that your teachers give! I take chem HL, and I bought the book Chemistry for the IB diploma - Oxford IB study guides. its by Geoffrey Neuss. Its been really useful, and separates what you need to know for higher and for standard. Also, each option is explained in detail. What's good about it is that it really provides what you need to know, with no superfluous things that textbooks can have. I have the same one for geo and I must say that its really helpful. They have the same versions of the book for most cl
  4. After reading this, I'm worried. I've never been good at memorization, and our teacher decided that we would do both further organic and human biochem. I've already failed my further organic test (I've never failed a test/quiz ever and this was so difficult!) and honestly i wish that our class would have had more input on the teacher's decision.
  5. We have it as well, but we rarely use it We do write up our reflections on it, though. And that's how far our manage-bac activity goes X)
  6. I take two B languages, and that problem has been hitting me hard in both classes. We are three students who take German B. We started off as two students, until someone from the A class dropped down because 'her writing needs to be worked on'. I had that problem once taking French A in IGCSE and I had a separate tutor for that. I don't see why that couldn't have happened. In Dutch B, we also have a fluent student. We do a lot of interactive orals, and he puts all of us SL students to shame. We also get intimidated by him, because he talks so fluently and for so long. All of the SL grades have
  7. elloh! I have a chem ia due on Friday. I'm technically done, but I can't help but think that I'm missing something something in my conclusion :/ I know that for the CE, we have to add any chemical explanation to the experiment - pretty much explain in through chemistry. I don't know what to write about for this! The reaction was a redox titration between Fe and MnO4- . Simple. I got the calculations, uncertainties, weakness/improvements, well, everything else done. My conclusion is written up, but what can I mention in my conclusion that has to do with redox? So far, I have: In response to the
  8. Chem HL - Started redox, finished acids and bases Math Studies - Started Logic, finished further Functions Geography HL - in higher we started economics, and in standard we started resources English A langlit HL - Othello German B - started on education Dutch B - practicing for mocks nothing fancy =P
  9. Hi! So I have my TOK presentation on Friday, and I would like to get some opinions on this. My KI is is it ever right to take someone's privacy away for the purpose of security, and my RLS is the truth serum. The truth serum is classified by the UN and EU as a mean of torture, and by some agencies as a mind-control device. BUT ultimately, it does sometimes squeeze some elements of truth out of people, which can increase security. So My question to you is what do YOU think? Should we value privacy or security more? Personally I'm against the truth serum, and I want to see what others think. Th
  10. Your topic sounds interesting! Here's a few ideas for your essay - Look up Camus' 'philosophy of the absurd'. It basically says that there is no point in looking for a meaning in life, since there isn't any meaning. People always strive to find their meaning even though it doesn't exist. Meursault is Camus' 'absurd' character, since he got the gist of not looking for meaning. You can link it to Sisyphus and the Rock (Greek myth)Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a good link as well Emotions - us vs. Meursault.Also, Meursault was not African! He lived in Algeria, which was highly influenced by the
  11. Ok, long story short; My situation is kind of complicated - I have a 'supervisor' who isn't really supervising me, but is saying that I have to give all of my raw data from my Chemistry EE experiment. My chemistry teacher isn't my supervisor but she is helping me with my EE because my supervisor isn't supervising me like she should, and my teacher is saying that I literally can't put any raw data, just analyze my averages. So I'm getting two opinions from two different teachers on one topic. I went to see another teacher who told me to do what my 'supervisor' is saying, but my teacher who is h
  12. Someone in my TOK class - sir, can we do a presentation on how un-ethical IB is toward students? We all laughed pretty hard at that Also TOK - Someone was doing a presentation about how video games can make people violent, so people shouldn't play video games Teacher - So how about this, one time, I was wearing yellow socks at school, and I shot the principal. Does that mean that every time I wear yellow socks I automatically feel violent? So I should be banned from wearing yellow socks? English - we were talking about the metaphor 'having butterflies in the stomach'. Someone in class - so it
  13. Hello, I'm doing it on the same topic, and might have some advice. Our teacher tells us to consider counter examples, and reply against those counter examples. This shows knowledge and understanding about the subject. Try to have a 3rd example, either another one in the natural sciences or in history. Hope I helped

    IA help please

    Ok I have to do this set of math 10 times today and I don't even know if I'm doing the first one right or not. I'm absolutely terrible at this and I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out even on one part! I'm so confused and I don't want to get a zero because of confusion Ok so originally, I had 10 cm3 of 3M HCl, No water, no ethyl ethanoate, 1cm3 glacial ethanoic acid, 4 cm3 ethanol, to do a esterification reaction for our equilibrium topic. 25.80 cm3 of NaOH were titrated against the mixture, and 14.30 cm3 of NaOH were titrated against 3M HCl The questions are as follows 1
  15. Hello, I have an idea for my tok presentation topic, but I dont know how to make it a knowledge issue and/or a tok-ish question. Here's a quote I have about an article i read called 'space versus time': "The route to a truly powerful theory of reality passes through an intimate understanding of space and time" Any ideas on how to make it a tok topic? And how to present it? Thanks
