  1. yep my friends used it as creativity: they knitted a final product. OFC to make sure you shld ask ur supervisor
  2. Hi thanks for your response! I was quite silly to not clarify in my post that I'm doing a database 🙄😅 sorry 'bout that!. And the root of my question I guess is in my background information I talk about limiting factors such as temperature and ecological niches; would it be wrong to apply that to a genus rather than a species? Because most research, litreture, on corals is about their genus rather than species. Species ( which is more specific than a genus) was thus hard to find data on. Thank u
  3. Hi guys, This is pertaining to the ecology unit as well: so I'm doing my IA on how an abiotic factor of temperature effects corals. Except I just realized that all my data involved a genus of corals, rather than a species of corals. So I've been investigating the effect of a genus on temperature, but my background pertains to species ( such as ecological niches and species, abiotic factors being limiting factors, natural selection for species). What should I do? Should I apply all this background to investigate a genus and list off the fact that I could not get data on a singl
  4. So I'm doing a rate of reaction IA with different catalysts. I've calculated the standard deviation and shown them as error bars on my graphs. Now, do I need to calculate absolute uncertainty and if so, what do I do with the calculated values?? Help would be awesome.
  5. Hey guys, I'm having second thoughts about my research question for my chem IA. I'm doing different catalysts (5) for decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. Does the underlined, red text sound too lengthy and awkward? I was wondering if I should group this into a range like " classes of compounds" but I'm not sure and just confused what to classify these names into. Oh, and for reference, my compounds are maganese oxide, iron oxide, lead oxide, potassium iodide and catalase. Any suggestions to help would be appreciated. Any constructive criticism would be awesome RQ:
  6. You absolutely can improve. Grade 11, first IB year was so bad for me I was getting like 70s in math and not my best in other subjects either. So in the summer, I studied, and in the second year I broke most 🙈 of my bad habits, and yeah I feel more confident. You have loads of time to improve but start now. Work on your weaknesses, try to study ahead in the summer cuz grade 12 becomes a little bit easier and dont allow yourself to procrastinate. Delete all your social media or whatever hobbies distract you. You can do it!
  7. Hey guys, working on my works in translation ( for final hand in to IB). In class, we talked about psychological setting briefly when discussing short stories. It was basically tone, mood and atmosphere. But im unsure because we only touched upon it. However, in my essay, I want to use it. I searched it up to clarify the meaning of this type of setting but can't find anything. Do you guys know what psychological setting is in literature? I want to know for sure. Thanks!
  8. Hey, In terms of memorizing studies ( ugh torture) it was basically me remembering each study in terms of Aim, participants, procedure and Results, And then I'd have a few key points for discussion such as limitations. I did this because examiners look for these points right away when talking about studies I'd write them down on cue cards, constantly review them. I'd write them in places I could see them so that I could glance at one or two on the train. That's why it's important to start reviewing in advance so you can just review. Although if u are short of time u can still
  9. Hey guys, so my EEs is on risk perception of GMOs, and how this influences implementations in countries. So I have psych as part of my interdisciplinary and bio. So do I do APA citations or MLA citations??? I'm so confused and this is due tomorrow and i just realized this. Welp
  10. hey guys, I am planning on doing my chem IA on different catalysts impact on the rate of reaction of decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. I was planning on measuring this rate of reaction with gas pressure ( with gas pressure sensors). My different catalysts are manganese dioxide, Potassium iodide, catalase, iron dioxide and lead oxide. So 3 transitional metal catalysts, one ionic compound and one organic compound as my catalyst. But now I am beginning to have second thoughts on this topic because ultimately I am not using a quantitative value as my IV. I've just chosen 5 different
  11. This question is definitely a great starting point, however, if you want a good and detailed argument (claims and counters) you need to be even more specific. For example in your question, consider: what sort of knowledge? Contextual knowledge? Emotional based knowledge? Is this knowledge the truth? Clarify this. And for the second part of your question consider what types of behaviour? Emotional responses to the historical event? Biases towards different sides? Because really anything can be behaviour. I feel this part of the question could focus on emotion so that your overall q
  12. hey, well here is a list of ways my teacher suggested in class -measuring the diameter of the stem: how wide it is. You can use measuring tape or string -measure the height of the stem in cm -leaf size can be measured without taking them off, just measure across or from the bud to the end with a measuring tape/ or string. Although I do admit this may be more tedious -you can even try measuring the heaviness of the plant. That would entail measuring the pot with soil at first before the experiment. And then every time you measure your plant in the pot, you subtract the
  13. A big aspect of motivation is that you clearly see the end goal. It is especially easy to lose motivation when you have a distraction around you. So, as a first step try to remove any distracting factors, such as social media. Just delete it, and you eventually will stop thinking about it. And as aforementioned, sleep is very important, You think much more differently with 5 hours of sleep compared to 8-9. As well, a little bit of competitiveness gives rise to motivation. Look to your other classmates, listen to them talk about assignments. Allow yourself to become a bit competitive
  14. Hello, As I am doing my world studies EE research, I came across a few obstacles. For my world studies essay, (which requires 2 subjects to approach a topic) I want to approach the biological and societal effects of using a gene editing technology called CRISPR in modifying and killing off mosquitos that carry Malaria. There's a global project going on called project target malaria, that has already conducted lab experiments and have proved that mosquito populations with malaria can be reduced. However what has left me rather confused is if I can approach the topic the way I want to
  15. well, it depends what your EE is on. (There are a lot of potential topics to choose from, and obviously, not all topics can be explored through in school experiments. You may have to choose to use secondary research and data from that.) The thing about Chemistry is that a lot of it is quantitative, and analysis is done through calculations. So most of the times calculations are important. Pretty much all chemistry EE examples I myself have gone through do include calculations, and analysis of the topic based off of those calculations So with whatever topic you do choose, you wou
  16. Anyone watching the Pakistan elections right now? What's your opinion on it? As I watch...I have one word: INTENSE
  17. Yes, ofc! Just be sure to check in with ur CAS coordinator, and make sure that the supervisor for this activity signs ur CAS paperwork so u can get the paperwork approved before u start ur activity. Have fun!
  18. Hiya guys, To Hl students for chem, I was just wondering do the AHL chapters build off of the core content or are they absolutely new content? Because, as I understand, each core chapter is a new overall concept, so, as a Hl student would those HL chapters be completely new concepts each? Thanks in advance!
