  1. Hey guys, I finished my Y1 with IB and this summer I've been trying hard to finalize my topic for the EE. I know it's a little late not to have a topic so I reeaaallllyyy need your help on this I'm thinking of writing one on bitcoin but I don't know which IB economics concepts would apply. I'm specifically interested in the risks of bitcoin and how it will impact the economy in the future. I could look at the determinants of demand in the case of bitcoin, or talk about price levels, but I'm not sure whether those would work. I guess bitcoin is related to money supply, but how would I g
  2. Hi everyone! I returned the final version of my English EE few days ago, and after rereading it, I noticed a few spelling and grammar (punctuation) mistakes. Although they do not make the understanding of my essay difficult and are rather unnoticeable if one reads quickly, I am still afraid that I will not be able to achieve a good grade because of some silly mistakes I was not able to notice. I know I should have left more time to proofread, but I am a horrible procrastinator😭 Do you think examiners will take away points even if my content is good?
  3. The research question I have chosen for my Extended Essay is "Do common commercial pesticides stunt the germination and growth time of Phaseolus vulgaris (the common bean)?" I am planning on buying 5-10 bean seeds and testing different pesticides on each sample, and then measuring the rate of germination and the time it takes for the bean to grow stalks (having another sample with no pesticides as a control group, of course). Firstly, I want to know if this question is narrow enough. Secondly, is my experimental process too simple for an EE? I think if I talk about the importance of
  4. I read somewhere that i need to have credible sources and like published journals or whatever. I honestly don't know how to check the credibility of my sources, can anyone help? Thank you
  5. Hey, I am planning on doing my Extended Essay in Math. After doing some revision on my previous choice of topic I came up with a new topic: The geometry of GPS navigation My research question would be: What is the role of mathematics and geometry in particular in GPS navigation? Would that research question be specific enough? Or do you have any ideas for improvement or refining it? My approach would roughly be looking at triangulation, explaining with diagrams how it works and what role it play in GPS navigation. Then I would look at trilateration and how this helps Would including how speed
  6. Hello, So recently I've been working on my EE and I've noticed that my research question might be a bit too constraining, yet I have no idea what amount of depth will suffice. Plus, my draft is due September 6th so I would like to get everything sorted by then. My current RQ (translated) is: "How does the representation of hope change from x to y through the use of rhetoric in Angela Merkel's speeches about the corona pandemic?" I'm thinking about removing the part about rhetoric so that my research question just focuses on how the representation of hope has changed in angela me
  7. Hey guys, hope everyone reading this is well. I need some help deciding on my official research question for the EE. I am quite behind on the EE because we have some deadlines coming soon and I have yet to research my topic and question because I cannot formulate a strong research question. My EE topic is on the Hippie movement (history) and my initial research question was "To what extent was the Hippie Movement successful in advocating against violence and war during the 1960s and 1970s?" but relooking at it and after doing some more research I am concerned it is a weak research question. My
  8. Are there any History books that focus solely on Mao's Hundred Flowers campaign? Most of the books that I have concentrate on a huge period of China's history, but I only really need to read about this one event.
  9. Hi! So I just joined ibsurvival. So I'm taking English B HL for my ee. I chose the movie "The hate u give" and I'm planning to write about racism. I have come up with sort of a research question, but i think it needs fixing. rq: How does 'The hate u give" portray racial disparity is the rq too simple? Please help give me advice to how to improve the research question to be better!
  10. Hey Guys! I need some help narrowing down my question on the salem witch trial! Here's the research question: How did the Salem witch trials reflect the Americans' point of view on gender and power in the 17th century in the US? I am worried it's a bit too broad and I may have some difficulty exploring every aspect of it. What would you guys recommend? Thank you
  11. Hi, I have come up with an RS "How does the acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon impact its global market share in the e-commerce industry?", where it's mostly focused on researching on Amazon, especially its global market share. However, the internet and other sources have too much about Amazon and I am a bit confused and thrown back on which areas about Amazon should I research on. I plan on creating a checklist of basic areas I should research on so that I don't go off-track. Can I get some ideas about what should I be looking out for when researching? (like find statistics about its global
  12. Hello, forums. I've just joined here hoping for assistance in picking a more refined EE question. I am in year II of the diploma programme, and am pressed for time regarding my EE. My original Extended Essay was on aerodynamics, but due to several problems it didn't work out. As a result, I've had to make a decision to change my EE topic, and physics is what I'm sticking with. Currently, my chosen topic is optics - lenses, and while I'd prefer to do it on aperture, diffraction, or distortion, I'm open to doing other things in optics as well. By this point things have gotten to a head and I hav
  13. Hello! I'm planning on doing my extended essay on English Literature but I don't have any books or question yet. I am interested in American literature in the 20th century and I'm hoping I can talk about something from then. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  14. hi! I want to do my English EE on a music album, the album also needs to have three music videos accompanying it. any recommendations? thank you!
  15. Hi so I'm starting my EE soon, and I'm thinking about comparing duplicity in The Sympathizer and Harry Potter (focusing on the main character of The Sympathizer and Snape from Harry Potter). Has anyone read The Sympathizer? If so, would this comparison be a doable one for my extended essay? Any suggestions for me? Anything to help would be great. I know Harry Potter is overdone, so that's why I was thinking of using a more literary book and comparing the two.
  16. Hi everyone, Can anyone please give me some good Ib extended Essay topics which are related to Oceans and coastal marginal unit or any other topics, please!!
  17. Hii, I need to choose a topic for my EE. I was thinking about doing English B category 2 (culture and society) but I'm not quite sure on what specific to do. I brainstormed some ideas: doing a research focusing on Disney movies or cartoons and the impact they have on kids' views and values analyze the problems in a specific kid movie something related to traveling and moving around (and therefore the effect on the person) something about societies and the impact on individuals' identity Could someone give me some tips?? I'm struggling a lot on finding a specific
  18. Hi! I am planning on writing my EE in English A. These are some of the texts I have shortlisted so far: 1. 1984 2. Jane Eyre 3. Pride and Prejudice 4. Fasting, Feasting 5. The Dispossessed 6. Tess of the d'Urbervilles Could someone pleasee give me some tips on how to choose a book for the English EE and let me know if my current shortlist is okay? I am really interested in justice, particularly in gender roles/ gender inequality, challenging societal ideals and also in the negative impact of advancing technology as is seen in 1984. - I am op
  19. Hi! I am doing my EE in languages and literature. My research question so far is; How does rupi kaur discuss sexual assault and the female voice through poetry in her works; milk and honey, and the sun and her flowers? I wanted to write an extended essay surrounding poetry that dealt with sexual assault and the female voice (don't really know how to put it, but I mean how woman are portrayed through the media etc) through a feministic eye. Rupi Kaur is very modern and I thought she would be interesting to look at since her work has gotten a lot of attention and I watched her Te
  20. Hi IBSurvival Forum! As I am approaching my analysis portion of my research-based extended essay, I would be delighted to get some feeback on analysis I have planned and subsequent conclusion. Before I go into the main point of this post, my stubborn foolishness led me to stick to a Bio EE, and I would just like to say it is immensely difficult to write a biology extended essay that meets the IB requirement to a high standard. My supervisor happened to be the EE coordinator as well as my biology teacher and the essays she had supervised previously were all research-based essays. Ou
  21. I chose bootstrapping in stats as my research topic and I've already done a bunch of research. Bootstrapping requires computer software to run, and so I'd been planning to use Python and some libraries to create a confidence interval. But when I checked the IB EE guide (https://www.shaker.org/downloads/ibextendedessayguide2018.pdf), I saw "Computer programs may only be included (in particular circumstances) in computer science and physics essays." I'm not sure what to do. My topic is quite clearly math, and I'm not sure I can switch it. Are there any exceptions to this rule about computer pro
  22. I'm thinking of doing a world studies EE, but I can't seem to find any good example essays or helpful material on writing one. I've found only two sample essays online, but nothing beyond that. Does anyone have any good resources? Or anyone has written an essay on world studies could you share your experience? Thank you! Well, I managed to find some resources for myself and thought I could leave it here for anyone who might be looking for examples in the future. http://spmoodle23.aisgz.org/mod/folder/view.php?id=44664
  23. I want to do an EE on biofuels, and i was going to use a calorimeter for the testing of each fuel, but i was advised against it. Any alternative methods to test fuel efficiency?
  24. I have a topic idea, but am seeking advice as well as help forming a question. I plan on researching the effect bilingual education (second language acquisition?) has on childhood development within psychology. I plan to look specifically on education and brain development. First off, does that seem like a possible topic? I've never taken a psychology class, and my school does not offer DP psych. Any advice on how to approach it in a psychology standpoint would be very appreciated! Secondly, I need help refining a question. I think I will word it as: To what extent does second l
  25. Hi all! I am a 11th grader and a Math HL student. I have chosen to model traffic flow using cellular automaton as the topic of my Math EE. However I am not sure how deep can I go and whether my topic is advanced enough to become an EE topic (my school's Math group teachers allowed me to do this topic, but I would like more opinions), because I still have a lot of things to learn about it. What's more, I have looked through some related essays, but I did not find many proves of mathematical theories. Most of them contain mainly words and graphs of cellular automaton, so I am not sure wheth
