  1. I've looked around a fair bit now and all i can seem to find is English literature papers, any help would be appreciated.
  2. Help me with this example: Is there a causation between cancer and smoking or just a strong correlation? is it a causation if smoking will always cause a physical change in your cells, which in turn causes cancer, or is it a causation between smoking and causing a change in your cells but not between smoking and getting cancer, because there are many other factors (immunity, genes, etc.) that determine whether you are going to develop cancer at all. hope you get what im saying, cheers
  3. Admittedly i don't know what the exact specifications for this written task are, if someone could clarify as to what it is that would be superb. Thanks for the help!
  4. People have been invaluable on this site! I've come up with a topic which seems very viable and interesting and i would like input before i'm overly confident! So basically i had a theoretical science essay, i though it was worth the risk changing considering that i would probably fail anyway. So i thought i would try seeing how different types of honey ( frusctose corn syrup, normal honey, varting strengths of manuka honey) would affect bacterial growth in e coli ( any suggestions for a bacterium i should use would be appreciated) There have been numerous claims on the antibacterial propertie
  5. Thats really good advice, what is the average grade for an essay of this type? Can i at least pass?
  6. It says i have to use primary sources for my extended essay, i've found articles on pubmed.gov for my biology extended essay, they give me raw data of their experiments, along with a hefty text. If i used this and made my own interpretation of the results, would this be considered raw data? And if so why not? I know theoretical science essays always do poorly, but have to continue with my topic as my supervisor wont answer my emails in the summer. I can't understand why its so bad to use professional data if i come up with my own interpretation. Also, can anyone explain to me how to use
  7. I wish i would have found this website sooner, you see unfortunately i've dug myself a metaphorical hole Basically i've chosen to do a theoretical research question in biology, not knowing that most essays in theoretical science recieve a D or less. Unfortunately my supervisor failed to bring this to light, even though this is my fault more then hers.....i've sent her an email concering this and i'm waiting for a reply :/ http://mcommerce.roamdata.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/wpid-nokia-snake-300x225.jpg pic related So I made a related post on this earlier http://www.ibsurvival.com/topic/24
  8. Here's my extended essay topic: "To what extent can lactose intolerance be treated with the bacterium lactobacillus acidophilus" So i thought i had some solid primary sources for my extended essay: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11233016 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9276791 These are just the abstracts of some of the research papers im using. But now i've actually got these research papers in hand, they were not quite what i expected. The information they give is really good for my topic, but there is very little raw data presented, which worries me. That is to say i could write my
