  1. Hey, I am confused that the IA topic I am doing is basically copying. Since I am doing database (thanks to covid-19), I realised that I needed various independent and dependent variables. I could not find a topic and had constant rejections so my sir had given another classmate's alternative topic. I have a feeling that its mostly copying since when my classmate had given me the topic, he/she also gave me a research paper for this as a resource. When I had looked through the research paper, the research question was similar to that of the research paper, with same independent and dependen
  2. Hi everyone. I'm having a little trouble with my Math IA., I would like to do the topic "The Mathematics behind Medical Testing", where I would speak about false positives / false negatives and the probability of getting them. However, I don't know where to get data from. Am I supposed to make up a hypothetical situation / disease and then make fake numbers for it ? Is that even allowed..? I would be using conditional probability to find the probability of a student testing positive for the XYZ disease, actually having the disease. I would be using the conditional probability
  3. https://forms.gle/cwArgy6A4B5styA88 Hi , I'd really appreciate it if anyone would be willing to fill out this form it shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes ! Thank you
  4. Could you share the topic of your History IA (and your grade if you already have it) ? This could be helpful for many! Do you have any tips about choosing a topic? I was planning on choosing a topic related to what we've learned in class because it may help me study for the exams. Do you recommend this? Do you recommend a topic related to Ancient History or to Modern History? Too bad nobody answered Well anyways I want to share the process I went when deciding a history topic First I wanted to do something related to witch hunting: ¿What factors caused the young women to be acused of
  5. Hello everyone😄 I decided to write math ia about BMI of women in different countries(especially countries which have really different kind of diets). Do you guys think it is appropriate for math HL ia? Also, I do not know which formula I should utilize to analyse topic... Pleaseeee help me😂 Thank you.
  6. Hi, I was wondering if any one has any ideas for the Math IA that relate to scuba diving? I'm really struggling to find something... Or if anyone has done it in the past, what was your idea? Thank you!
  7. I need help choosing a Research Question for my History IA topic. So far I have brainstormed the following: - To what extent was Stalin's First 5 Year Plan successful? - To what extent was the Stalin's First 5 Year Plan motivated by political/economic/ideological reasons? ( I will choose one of the factors) - To what extent were the methods employed in Stalin's First 5 Year Plan successful in meeting its aims? - To what extent was collectivisation successful in increasing the industrial output/meeting the aims of Stalin's First 5 Year Plan? - To what extent was the Mar
  8. Hey so I have a question. If lets say I do my IA in biology and follow an experiment that has been done before but I change a few things to make it my own? e.g the effect of temperature on seed germination but instead of copying the exact temperature conditions, I come up with my own. Is it plagiarism? Do you have to come up with your own experiment?I'm freaking out
  9. Hello, I want to do an experiment relating the properties of a transition metal complex to the wavelength of light that the complex absorbs, but I can't seem to find any data on the wavelength of light absorbed by different complexes. Are there any databases that contain this information or information related to the absorption spectrum of transition metal complexes?
  10. Hello, I'm doing my chemistry IA on paper chromatography of different colours of leaves. I really would appreciate a sample IA about chromatography that I can get the structure from. can you please share with me anything that might help? Thank you very much.
  11. Hi, For my Chem HL IA, I want to investigate how the different ligands in transition metal complexes affect the color of its compounds. I plan to use software like ChemSketch and Molview to draw the structures of transition metal complexes, but I can't find any tools in the software that I can use to calculate the energy released from the splitting of d-orbitals. Is there any website or application that I can use to calculate this?
  12. Heyy!! I really need help finding an Econ IA article for Macroeconomics on unemployment or interest rates!! Please help. Thanks
  13. We had another IA and it’s due Friday but because I’m a certificate student I wasn’t told to do it. So I didn’t and I appreciated that I didn’t have to because of my ADHD. I’m in math studies and I am the only student who isn’t Full Diploma IB in the class and we’re preparing for the IA. If it’s only supposed to help me get the diploma then why would I even bother? I’m not gonna get the diploma anyways (I didn’t even find out I couldn’t until a few months into IB junior year) so I’d just be doing an IA for no reward. I don’t see the value in it unless it will specifically aid me as a Certifica
  14. Hi, I started doing my chemistry IA on the effect of temperature on buffering capacity. I added a pH 7 buffer to distilled water and titrated it with NaOH. I then measured the amount of NaOH taken to increase the pH of the water by a unit of 1. I tried this for temperatures between 5 and 80 degrees but there was no significant difference between the data obtained. This there any notable fault in my methodology? I have to finish gathering data for my IA within one week. Since I was going to discuss the effect of temperature on the equilibria of the buffer solution, I am in the p
  15. Hi everyone, I am researching for my history EE, and I am having troubles with finding the evidence for an event. The event consists in a conversation between the king and Mussolini, which is mentioned in multiple books but without any reference to a primary source, but always to other secondary sources (other historians' books ) or no reference at all. My supervisor was bemoaning this, however it seems fair that there is no "transcript" of a private conversation. Is it common\acceptable? How can I back this event better? Thank you in advance
  16. How good is this IA topic? "Investigating the effect of increasing concentration on the rate of reaction between sulfuric/hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate." Are there any possible improvements to this topic? Like is this possible to do? If not, what are some changes I could make?
  17. Heyy! My history teacher has randomly gone off the radar over summer, so I'm here looking for advice on my IA topic (HL) At the moment my inquiry question is "To what extent did the assassination of Indira Gandhi repair the relationship between Sikhs and Hindus?" I came to this as I thought arguing that it repaired the relationship would be an interesting and "controversial" stance to take considering the riots and social divide that shortly followed. Anyways, how's the topic? Is the premise narrow enough or do I need to be more specific and include "repair the relationship as a long ter
  18. Hello, I hope you are doing well. I need to do my Math SL IA on SIR model. (Simulation of pandemics) There is a hypothetical and isolated country with 10 million people. Then, there are 10 immigrants who entered this country and 5 of them are infected. R0 is 3, and I am varying the immunity rate. My research question is how does the immunity rate affect the spread of the virus? I am having difficulties in simulating a mathematical function which will simulate the behaviour of this case with SIR model. Could somebody please he
  19. I've got a standard electrolysis IA, my dependent variable is obviously the deposit of the ion on the other electrode, but my independent variable is surface area. I've had some troubles with coming up with a way to test this, but I've concluded the the best way would be to cover up some parts of the electrode with waterproof tape. What uncertainties may be present? How could a certain amount of waterproof tape placed onto the electrode to test surface disrupt the electrolysis?
  20. Hi, I am doing my physics ia project about lift force. I have done a lot of research on how to measure the lift force with Bernoulli principle, and after I done the experiment. I found that it may not followed that principle As a result, I searched the other ways to explain the lift force, and realized probably Bernoulli principle was not the best explanation. However, I did found some trend and relationship between variablesin my data, which obeys the Bernoulli principle but not correct according to the real life. That's why I come here and ask for help. THANKS!
  21. Hey guys, I have a Math IA due on Sunday December 15, which is about 9 days from now. I want to do my topic on the golden ratio because firstly, I'm genuinely interested in it, and secondly, it's extremely risky to change topics at such a late stage. I know some of you will scold me for procrastinating on it but believe me I've legitimately been working on it. However, I'm having trouble finding an original idea based on the golden ratio. I did an introduction where I introduced it and such but I'm having trouble with how to proceed. I know it's supposed to be an exploration on a real-life th
  22. Hi, I need to find ideas for my MATH SL IA and want to do Probability. My 2 ideas are either Probability in testing in medicine (false positives). Problem is I don't know what to do with the idea (what math to use) Normal distribution (any topic, just measuring distribution). If you could help me with ideas on any of the two as in what topics to include to get the highest grade I would be thankful. Is it enough to do a Chi squared test, normal distribution graph and use the equation? (for Normal distribution idea) Please I need urgent help and thanks
  23. Hey, I was really confused about how I should start my IA and about the research involved. Can someone please help me? My research question is "To what extent was Hitler's economic policies helpful in revitalizing the German economy from 1933 to 1941?". Thanks, Payas
  24. I have to do a IA on the germination of seeds. I have my independent variable which is salinity. I am looking at it effect on the time it takes for a seed to germinate. I have a few questions, What is a good range of concentrations? How much of the concentration should I add? What is the best way to get my concentration? Should I add the concentration to the soil and add the salinity of the soil on top, or change the salinity of the soil to a fixed point? E.g. add 1% to soil or make the soil have 1% salinity. All help would be great! Thanks!
  25. So I am working on my HL essay written assignment and I was thinking about working on A Dolls House as my literature piece.
