  1. Hey fellow IB students/alumni! I am/was an IB student (Exams 2013). I'm also the editor-in-chief of a local Teen Paper called Teen Times printed monthly in the Caribbean. This month I'm working on an article that will cover the current protests in Turkey. To make my article more interesting and accurate I'm looking for some students or former students living in Turkey who would be willing to provide their opinion on this topic. If anyone is interested then please contact me and I can give you more details. Then we can hopefully set a time for an interview I would be very grateful if anyone
  2. Hey everyone So my question is about the language B written assignment. Does the teacher or the student have to choose the text type? I know it has to be chosen from the paper 2 text types. The syllabus says : "Students produce a piece of creative writing that may be chosen from the recommended text types listed for paper 2 in this section." So I can't figure out whether it is the student or the teacher that chooses this text type. Thank you very much to anyone who can answer this question!
  3. I used Wikipedia to get a general idea of the information I'm looking for. Then if there's information that's cited you can check the source and cite that instead.
  4. No. No one can predict whether or not you'll like anthropology Also, History will be a lot of reading and research. Take it if you have an interest in finding out a lot of details about a few particular topics, writing essays about them with deep analysis as well as analyzing sources for their value and limitations. It won't be "superficial".
  5. To do TOK all you really have to do is be open-minded. If you consider thinking differently about things you'll be able to form good arguments because you consider different points of view and with most things in TOK you eventually realize that you cannot have a definite answer. You just have to argue everything from different perspectives and realize that you're not even close to always right in what you think and that things are often subjective and relative. In my opinion, the point of TOK is to make you realize that you don't know anything at all. Works for me
  6. What is Maths Methods? Is it the same as Math Studies?
  7. Taking Math HL instead of French B HL seems like the best option to me. Math HL is very challenging. However, if you study Physics, you're going to have to deal with a lot of math anyway. So if you don't like or can't handle the amount of math you'll have to deal with in Math HL, maybe studying Physics at university wouldn't be the best option anyway. I don't think there's any reason to take Chemistry at HL if you want to study Physics. I don't think you should take 4 HL's, especially since you have no choice but to take those local electives too and Math HL and Physics HL are challenging.
  8. I think that Pamoja is very good and organized. The main benefit according to me is that you set up your own time for when you want to do your work. You get weekly chances to speak with your instructor. In my course, every week, two sessions are set up in which you have a virtual class with your instructor. This is done using something called "Elluminate". It just creates a virtual classroom where you can talk to your instructor and your instructor speaks and uses a whiteboard to teach and answer any of your questions. The main disadvantage in my opinion is the fact that it takes a lot more se
  9. Yeah. It's Pamoja*. That's how I do Math HL. the interface is different than in the videos though.
  10. My least favorite subject is English A1. I love reading and analyzing literature, but things like IOP's are just annoying. Math is actually my favorite even though most people seem to hate it It's definitely applicable to many things. Even though learning sciences in IB is quite different from learning Math in IB, of course Math does go hand in hand with sciences.
  11. Your English subject must be one of those. A1 is taken if English is your best/native language. A2 is taken if you are fluent in the language in a "almost native" way. B is taken if you have 2-3 years of experience with the language. ab initio is taken if you have no experience with the language. You can have A1, A2, and B in SL or HL. Ab initio is only SL. So since you're in the US, you are probably taking English A1.
  12. I know this isn't going to be very helpful, but I have the TI Nspire CX and I love it just because it has many cool features... and color! Plus it works like a computer.. I use it for Math HL though which is why I don't know how useful it is for SL.
  13. We have 3 hours and 45 minutes per week for every HL. Two sessions of 1.5 hours and one of 45 minutes every week.
