  1. Quite the subject combination you have there.
  2. "The International Baccalaureate (IB) computer science course will be taught as an option in group 4, experimental sciences, from August 2012." https://www.ibo.org/diploma/curriculum/group5/ComputerScience.cfm
  3. An explicit subsidy is a subsidy that the government makes clear will go to a firm. For example, if you produce x units of wheat, then the government will pay you $x*y, where y is the subsidy (or the amount of money paid per unit you produce). An implicit subsidy is when the government suppresses supply, and hence raises price. This means the firms in the industry are able to charge higher prices and therefore make higher profits, but it usually doesn't cost the government as much. If you do a search for "implicit" on this page it gives some good examples.
  4. I think my online course is my favourite (economics). However, that could just be because I intend to study it at university. The course is quite interactive and you have many opportunities to interact with the other students through discussions and blogging, and I find my online teacher to be more knowledgeable and helpful than any of the ones at my regular school. With regard to turning in tests, the only problem I see is that you could potentially cheat and not respect the time limits or the fact it's a closed book test. However, I don't think very many people in my class do this, since we
  5. You could browse the library at http://www.khanacademy.org/ and http://patrickjmt.com/ while looking at the math HL syllabus and watch the corresponding videos. I prefer to learn from these two than any math teacher I've had.
  6. http://www.questia.com/ is pretty good, although you do have to pay to make an account (I think it's about $50/year). My city doesn't have a decent library either, so our school bought us all an account on that.
  7. Did you consider taking it online at http://www.pamojaeducation.com? That's how I'm taking it, and despite the fact it's an online course, it's by far my favourite And I feel my econ teacher knows far more about IB than the teachers at my regular school.
  8. You seem to have a pretty good start, but my teacher told us to use the DEDEE method: Define, explain, diagrams, example, evaluate. I find if you follow this guideline closely you end up not having to write as much as you normally would, and I've gotten all 7s on my unit tests.
  9. This is helping me prepare for Calculus BC, it should be able to help you. You can adjust the difficulty level, so it should be good for you.
  10. You can buy it from the IB store, here. Sorry, but I don't know which paper it is.
  11. I use anki (http://ankisrs.net/) to make flashcards from Mastering French Vocabulary (http://www.amazon.ca/Mastering-French-Vocabulary-Thematic-Approach/dp/0764123947/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323395213&sr=8-1). Sometimes I read articles on lemonde to see which words appear a lot and put them in anki. Qasana.com is also pretty useful, if you haven't already used it.
  12. I would have liked to take HL Math and Further Math, but only SL math is offered at my school . Philosophy also sounds a lot more interesting than history, I wish I could have taken it.
