  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!!
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Hi! I have a research area but I'm not sure if it's narrow enough: Switzerland's role in the Third Reich's Progression during WW2 I'm really interested in this topic, but I've found quite a lot of sources analyzing how Switzerland aided the Axis Powers, and I'm not so sure that it'll be original enough for an EE. Though there is definitely scope for me to accumulate different perspectives and form a strong conclusion. I'd appreciate any help or feedback!
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. My current topic is To what extent does the social class we are born into affect us and our future? on The Outsiders. I was thinking it was good for the literature category, but my teacher first said it was okay, then said it was not okay, and she said that the book is not literature. I realized that she doesn't really know how to help me even and I started searching up online, but got even more confused. Is this topic good? Or should I change it?
  22. Hi! I'm doing an Extended essay on English Language and Literature, focusing on Agatha Christie and her novel And Then There Were None. I'm especially fascinated by the subgenre in which this book falls into, the locked-room mystery/impossible crime. I want to look into how choices made within the story and choices made by Agatha as she wrote the book contributed to developing an impossible crime. (Eg. Character interactions/how they viewed one another, and literary devices Christie employed respectively. Hopefully this makes sense.) The research question I'm considering is: How is the lo
  23. I have already written my Economics EE on what factors have caused public transportation ridership to decline in the US in recent years . My Math IA is currently on whether population density affects the ridership of public transportation in the US. As you can see, it is not the same topic but it is very similar and I was wondering if I was allowed to use writing from my EE (my own) and incorporate it into my Math IA. Would it count as duplication? Anything helps so thank you in advance.
  24. I want to do my EE in History about the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Maybe look into the international response, or compare two responses (e.g. China's vs Britain's). I don't know how to formulate a RQ tho, and I'm also a bit lost regarding the analysis part - I don't think I have one yet. Possibly which response was more crucial..? Any help/ideas would be very much appreciated!!
  25. I have been researching topics for a while now and have come up with an idea that I like. My idea is to investigate the effect of the angle of attack of a frisbee on its trajectory/displacement. The topic would include investigating how lift is generated, how torque comes into play, the temperature and pressure of that air. I have seen a few extended essay exemplars and their topics seem much more complicated and advanced. Do you think my idea is suitable for an EE?
