  1. Hey guys, Just wondering how many hours everyone spent on their long term project. Everything else seems to be coming along fine except my long term project hours. I've even done consistent reflections for everything else except that. That doesn't go to say I haven't done any. The reflections are just not very consistent.
  2. Hi guys, I'm writing my EE on economics at the moment but I've just realised I'm having to use a lot of stuff from HL, especially from the theory of the firm section describing market structures etc. However, I'm a little worried about this as I'm only taking SL and not "supposed" to have learnt it. Do you think its still okay to use in my EE? Thanks in advance
  3. Questions says it all really. Are we allowed to use the word "I" in our EE's? I'm writing about how the essay question applies to me and I've used it quite a few times already....
  4. I've been sitting here writing an essay for nearly 8 hours and I found a quote which I think I may be able to use... Until I realised I have no idea what it actually means.... "a fact can only mean confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent" Sorry this may seem real dumb but I honestly cannot seem to get my head around it :/ Would anyone be able to briefly explain what it means? Thanks in advance
  5. I've decided to do my TOK essay on "It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts"(Arthur Conan Doyle). Consider the extent to which this statement may be true in two or more areas of knowledge. I've spent about a week thinking up things... And I have no idea what to write... I'm not asking for answers, just a bit of guidance to what I should think about. I'm feeling wary about the "capital mistake" bit as well cause I have no idea what it means... Would anyone please be able to help me?? :/
  6. I'm just working on a lab report at the moment where I have to calculate the t-test values for a set of data... I'm looking at the lengths of the internode and leaf in the Wandering Jew plant. One set has been grown in sunlight and the other has been grown in the shade. I manually calculated it the first time and got: Internodes: -27.0879671 Leaf length: -25.25046944 But then I tried again in Excel and got a different value of... Internodes: 4.97254E-48 Leaf length: 2.26466E-44 Would anyone be able to help me with interpreting these results because I've just about given up...... Thanks in adv
  7. I'm doing my portfolio task at the moment and I want to find the equation of a line with known points. I know that you have to use POLYSMLT2 on the TI calculators but I have a Casio. Would anyone be able to tell me what I have to use? Thanks in advance
  8. Hi! So I'm just doing a lab write up at the moment and I'm up to an absolute uncertainty calculation... Absolute uncertainty calculation (3.13/100) x 24.406745 = 0.76393... Am I supposed to round this to 1 and then also round my reading of 24.406745 to 3 sf? So it would be.... 24.4 ± 1 kJmol-1 ?? Thanks in advance!!
  9. I'm trying to write an essay on how the characters in Haruki Murakami's "The Elephant Vanishes" and Akutugawa's "Rashomon and 17 other stories" experience dissatisfaction, alienation, isolation etc etc from society. I'm kinda stuck at the moment and was would appreciate any help that could get me started. Thanks!
  10. That is kind of what they are saying in this article i'm reading. It says that homework isn't making kids any smarter, so why give out more? There is apparently no actual evidence that says homework is even beneficial in the first place but they can't seem to do any tests because they can't have a control group with students who don't do homework for years. Although I did find something on Sudbury Model schools which was very interesting.. They don't have any homework, tests, assignments whatsoever. However, there isn't any evidence saying that no homework makes kids smarter, or not in the s
  11. So I'm doing my TOK presentation on the issues surrounding the amount of homework that students get these days. This comes after reading an article which said that private schools in New York are starting to decrease the load of homework they give to students so that they can basically, have a bit of a life. This is contrary to the long established rule on homework which seems to be "the more, the better." My knowledge issue is : How do people formulate theories that seem to contradict long established knowledge Any ideas of how I could do this??
  12. So I started IB in February this year, so its been about... Half a year since I've started. I've been doing most of my CAS regularly, but I've missed a few reflections. We've been advised to do at least one every month, but there are times when I've done 2 in one month and none in the month after, but then started again the following month. Also, there have been problems with my long-term project which involves visiting an elderly person every week. She's been real sick these past few months so I haven't been able to do anything. i'm getting paranoid about all this as I heard that so many peo
  13. So basically the title says it all. I kinda need to know the trend in the standard electrode potentials chart on table 14 I think in the data booklet. Is it stronger reductant at the top of the right hand side and stronger oxidant on the bottom of the left hand side? so confused....
  14. It doesn't have to be long. I just need an idea of what its like. But its okay, don't go to any trouble typing it up
  15. Would anyone be willing to send me an example of a written commentary of theirs that got a good mark? I have an English exam for midterms tomorrow but our teacher is not so sure about how the marking works etc herself so I only have a vague idea of what I'm doing. It doesn't help that we're the first cohort for IB at our school either... I don't want it so I can copy off it etc and the chances that I get the same prose/poem is very slim Thanks
