  1. Any resources that give IB reviews in relatively full sessions (not just selective chapters out of the course, History HL of course is different), such as youtube channels, teacher blogs, websites and such? or any sites that host past exams would be nice too for Biology HL, Chemistry SL, History HL, English Lit HL? Thanks !!
  2. Thank you so much for the feedback! ill try to squeeze in any math notations where i can... hard for me since i never learned this ..
  3. Hey im doing math exploration on norm-referenced grading, and i decided to add on a more complex explanation to bell curve in hope to earn some smiley faces... Im SL student so never learned anything about it, the paragraph is the essence of an hour on wiki, i just wanted to make sure my understanding is alright, i know it is not sophisticated or anything, but it is my accomplishment to put it in my own words.. plagiarism is sin, intelligent manipulation is gold.. just see if i got my basics right... Continuous probability distribution has the probability density function, and its random var
  4. Thank you! i already have my first rough draft in I am SL student, and i think it is little late for me to change it completely, so i was wondering is there something else i can add to it? I know it is asking too much but since i never learned anything outside of syllabus ... i can't really think off "outside of course" stuff any directional help is much appreciated, thank you!
  5. My math exploration is on the topic of norm distribution curve grading, where i examine how teacher can use norm distribution, z-score to alter students' scores, aka scaling My aim is to see who benefit the most from the class if a teacher do scale a test so ill be using a hypothetical set of raw scores from students as raw data, calculate the average, standard deviation, then i would use them to calculate the z-score of each student's raw mark decide what should teacher's "ideal distribution" would be, and plot in the z-score of raw mark to the new ideal bell curve to see the scaled mark and
  6. I want to do my essay on the reform movement happened in the 1890s China, particularly after the Sino-Japanese war, with Kang YouWei and other reform minded people I want to write about how those reformists' actions were enlightening the society, and how they were beneficial, and had greater effects on the society (such as Kang's idea of constitutional democracy, public schools, his book that denied old Confucian learning of three bonds) The research question I came up with is: To what extend can the reformations in 1890s China be considered an enlightenment era? I have A LOT of troubles to wo
  7. Haha i did mine on the plain and simple "abortion", and i got 18/20 for my legit TOK presentation One thing i always tell people when it comes to the presentation, remember it is a TOK presentation, not a moral debate, a science investigation, blah blah blah... It is the theory of knowledge, so like above said, its about AOK and WOKs. The tip my teacher gave me, is that the topic of "designer baby" or "abortion", are all just real life situation, your knowledge claim cannot be "designer baby is bad, go to hell with semen" it is about how this real life situation leads you to a broader, general
  8. remember the AOK WOK ? TOK is very different for each teacher, but for mine, he is very satisfied when we use AOK and WOK to answer the question. So, since the question is asking "how", why don you look at the WOKs? How do you know? Perhaps "reason"? reason can help you to determine if education is important for you! plz elaborate on your own... or "language" since your parents communicated the importance of education to you, how does language help you to figure out this question? TOK is theory of knowledge, remember to think of this when comes to answer questions,IT ISN'T about the answer to
  9. maybe is because you are "scanning" the writing instead? i do that ALL the time when it comes to boring, dry readings. a simple solution is to recognize when you "drifted off" by only scanning the words on the page, and take the hard way by going back to read it again and again until the words sink into you, this way, you will refocus yourself back into the reading. also, take a highlighter with you highlight the things that you think will matter for what you are learning, not only will it force you to focus, it can also be a great reminder when you finished a 500 page writing on Washington'
  10. The topic i want to do is the hundred days' reform of the late qing dynasty of china (donno if u guys know this, it was a radical reform in the 1890s involving Kang Yu Wei, and the Kuang Su emperor. it is called the hundred days reform cuz it only lasted for a hundred days.) i was looking into writing an essay about the falling of Qing, and narrowed my topic to something that is small, like an event, which is easier to concentrate on. Im researching right now, but need help on the actual research question forming, and the direction i want to go. The research question i can think of right n
