  1. Will we get a break down for each class of how we scored in each assignment? ex. paper 1 score, paper 2 score, IA score, etc.
  2. Notice they're out of the same number of points (90) and have the same scaling factor (.444) therefore they're equally weighted.
  3. Are you saying you used Finale or Sibelius to create your scores/soundtracks? If so you're fine. If you used something like Garageband it might be a different story.
  4. I did the first question under Drama about dialogue. Pretty easy.
  5. 1) Technically yes, but a better term for music theory would be music perception and analysis. IB Music isn't so much about music theory (intervals, chords, etc) as it is about listening to a piece of music and being able to analyze what you hear. 2)The exam is a listening paper. There are 2 set works which you will have studied in class, and then 4 pieces which you will hear for the first time. 3)Not necessarily, but you will be graded on things such as technical competence and interpretation. You will have to do a 20 minute solo performance, which can consist of one group performance. 4)
  6. Two questions: i) The solar intensity at the position of the Earth is 1380 W/m2. The average albedo of Earth is 0.300. Show that the average reflected intensity from the Earth is about 100 W/m2. ii) One of the expected results of global warming is an increased sea level. The increase in volume ΔV for a temperature ΔT is given by ΔV=ϒVΔT. Show, using the following data, that the resulting rise in sea level is about 0.5m. Temperature increase = 2.0 C Surface area of oceans on Earth= 3.6E8 km2 Average ocean depth = 3.0 km ϒ = 8.8E-5
  7. If I'm remembering the right question, it said find the "value" of his money which hints at adjusting for inflation. So find how much he would have using the compound interest formula, then adjust for inflation using the two exchange rates given.
  8. I thought it was incredibly easy...I'm pretty sure I got all of them right.
  9. What is the difference between TZ1 and TZ2? Obviously they were different works, but what dictates if you got TZ1 or TZ2?
  10. The first 3 questions are on the set pieces, Mozart's Symphony No. 41 and Copland's El Salon Mexico. If you are HL, you'll answer all 3 questions. If you're SL, you will answer 1 OR 2, AND 3. (So if you're SL either 1 and 3 or 2 and 3.) Questions 1 and 2 are specifically about one of the pieces ex. How successful was Copland in mixing 20th century tone colors with traditional tone colors? Question 3 will be compare and contrast the two pieces with regard to certain aspects (rhythm, timbre, etc.) Questions 4-7 are the pieces you listen to and analyze. They may be identified or unidentified- mo
  11. -Chronicle and Stranger are both pretty violent...or at least violence is prominent in both works. But you've probably already thought of that. -Societal expectations of men and women in Chronicle and Doll House. In Chronicle there are double standards between men and women in sexuality, while in Doll House women are kind of degraded. -I think you could make the case in all three works that the reader doesn't really sympathize with the protagonist. These are all off the top of my head, I hope they make sense
  12. I don't think it's absolutely necessary that you have a score but it definitely helps. Your score in one of the sections (I think it's section C) will go up if you can notate part of the music in your paper. This would mean copy/pasting a part of a digital copy of the score into your paper, or going into Finale or Sibelius, transcribing part of the piece, taking a screen shot, and putting it in your paper.
  13. This seems like it should be really simple but I can't get it... A ball is suspended from a ceiling by a string of length 7.5m. The ball is kicked horizontally and rises to a maximum height of 6.0m. a) Assuming that the air resistance is negligible, show that the initial speed of the ball is 11 m/s b) The mass of the ball is 0.55kg and the impact of the kicker's foot with the ball is 150ms. Estimate the average force exerted on the ball by the kick. c) i) Explain why the tension in the string increases immediately after the ball is kicked. ii) Calculate the tension in the string immediate
  14. Yes, apart from the discussion of your musical links you should compare and contrast the works you are analyzing. (according to the rubric, at least)
  15. If you don't already have one, a score of the Mozart symphony can be found here although I think it is missing a page: http://imslp.org/wiki/Symphony_No.41_in_C_major,_K.551_(Mozart,_Wolfgang_Amadeus) Unfortunately, the Copland score can't be found for free online because it's not yet public domain.
