  1. Hi Does anybody has the syllabus for languages B for exams on 2014?
  2. So those who are over with IB, anyone planning on taking a gap year? what made you decide on taking a GY? what will you be doing?
  3. Geographyyyyy!! Belive me it's not "hi I'm a map, draw lines on me" in fact I can't recall any time where I had to drew a map. Let me elaborate what geography is really about. To some extent you will be required to memorize a gazillion amount of fact/dates/statistics and theory just as in history. However you do learn a lot of interesting stuff and it also helps you to evaluate everything from different perspectives, also you get to learn about current issues. In terms of grades, I did not take hist HL but IMO geography isn't a a subject where you will easily get a 7 because question (Especia
  4. thanks Mine is also going to the IB... anyone doing geog IA that might need help, feel free to post or PM me.
  5. Does anybody knows the final deadline to submit the ToK essay online?
  6. Hey there, I haven't started Geography yet, so I wouldn't know, so I was wondering if Geography really covers current affairs and such things, as that's what interests me the most. Also, would it help to study Geopolitics in the future? Thanks Yeah, as said above, geography's a pretty well-rounded course in the IB because it's focus is on HUMAN interactions with the environment, not just necessarily the environment itself. And the case studies aspect of it keeps it quite contemporary and relevant - and hopefully relevant to geopolitics as well. The geography course does explore how our action
  7. Case studies are basically real life situations. For example my teacher chose to do as an option "Freshwater issues and conflicts" so as case studies we learned about water conflict of the River Nile and Jordan. Case studies are what quotations are to english papers, they are examples that support/give evidence of the essay questions you have to answer. You have to learn figures and important facts for each situation (yeah its hard but not impossible). The syllabus encourages to use a combination of local and international case studies. For example I have case studies of the countries, my coun
  8. Hey there, I haven't started Geography yet, so I wouldn't know, so I was wondering if Geography really covers current affairs and such things, as that's what interests me the most. Also, would it help to study Geopolitics in the future? Thanks Well, yes you cover a wide variety of current issues. I am in IB2 and when I first decided to choose geography I thought it would be a physical geography style course. However, I found out most of the core (SL) and the extension (HL) deals with human geography. The options are the ones where the physical geography is studied. IMO it is an interesting c
  9. My first one was "To what extent does Zeus and Jocasta do not portray parental figures"
  10. agh I feel so dumb I screwed up the last section of the portfolio. Will that affect my grade?
  11. So I was told to redo my WL over the Christmas break and I forgot to look for my teacher and discuss what I could do. So I need help from you guys I was planning on doing "To what extent is secrecy the cause of tragedy in Oedipus king and Prometheus?" Any help would be appreciated.
  12. I have tried to "analytically" get a function for a cubic formula. The first time only like the first three point fit, so I tried to work it out with three other point. But I don't get a good model. I am using f(x)= ax3+bx2+cx+d Can someone spot a mistake in the function above? I also tried a exponential but also I am not getting a proper fit. Thanks for the help in advance.
  13. For a geography EE if I include things like statistic do they count as a word?
