  1. Hi guys, I'm about to submit my IA idea for math and I just want a few pieces of advice choosing one. Currently, I'm very much interested in cryptography and machine learning which are the topics that I want to do my Math IA on, are these viable ideas? Earlier when I talked to my teacher, he said that writing about the Global Positioning System (GPS) would be a great idea, but I'd much prefer the other two topics. What should I do to ensure that I get a high grade while doing something that I actually enjoy?
  2. So for the past weeks I have been thinking about my maths IA but I am just really unsure about my topic. I was thinking about a research question like this : How long would it have taken for every human to get covid 19 if there weren't any restrictions. I am doing maths AI in HL and I would just like to know your opinions or suggestions about my idea.
  3. Hey guys, I was woking on my maths internal assesment when I decided to look up soome examples online about my topic (golden ratio on my local city) and I found out that the topis is "overused" and that I could get a bad grade because the topic lacks from creativity. This golden ratio in architecture topic really interested me and even more considering that theres no information about it being used on my city online (Im from Montevideo, Uruguay) so I would be the one that makes the whole progress and maybe, that could compensate tge creativity issue. What do you guys think? Is it really lik
  4. So I thought I was all set up and ready, and did my IA recently. Let's just say it didn't go as well as it could. Several things went wrong. So I'm going to post them here so anyone else doing the IA can learn from my mistakes. 1. When you are recruiting people to be a part of your study, make sure you give them something physical with your information and officially take down their names and contact numbers. Make sure it seems like something that can't just be skipped if they feel like it, because apparently going to a Psychology study doesn't automatically rank as something important in peop
  5. Hi, For my math IA, I chose to do traffic flow. So far, I narrowed down my potential questions to: a) How do trucks contribute to traffic jams and b) What causes traffic jams. Do you guys think that one of these is a do-able topic question, or should i change it? How can i structure my IA to get a good mark? Thanks :))
  6. Hi, I am in despirate need of help. My maths teacher has said that she set the maths IA draft deadline for the end of the school term nd has said that of we do not meet this deadline anything we hand in later is considered a final draft and she will give no feedback on what we submit. Is this allowed? I wasn't aware of the deadline and have also had Philospohy, Biology and ESS IA's at the same time as well as the EE draft to be handed in and the TOK exhibition AND mocks the second week back of september. Any feedback would mean the world to me!!!!!
  7. 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!
  8. (Sorry this is so long but really need urgent help! Draft due next week!) Hi everyone, So I've been stuck on my Maths IA for a while after having to change topics because my old one was too fiddly. I've discussed doing the Birthday Paradox with my teacher, and she said it was a good topic. However, I'm on holidays now and have sent her an email asking about a problem I was having and possible solutions. In her reply she said she was worried I wasn't doing enough maths. What I was previously planning on doing in the IA was: - Discussing the Birthday Paradox itself and the maths behind i
  9. Can I choose a movie (instead of a literary text) and analyze it for my higher level essay? Would it make any difference with regards to grading and requirements?
  10. Hi guys I have a math Ia due by the end of this week, and I basically am not close to finishing. Im using probability and statistics to find the outcome of a football (Soccer) tournament. I need to find ways on how to do this. So far I used the poisson distribution to predict outcome of matches, but does anyone know how I can use the graphs in my IA (like how should I analyse it). And im also looking for other methods of calculating a match outcome, one where there is only loss or win for the knockout stages. The tournament I am predicting is the Euros 2020. Yes I know it has passed, but I'm t
  11. I am doing an interview with one client next week, but I couldn't decide the questions to bring out the client requirements or specifications, and problem statement. What could be some general questions to bring out the specifications like 'What is the most important thing to consider with designing this product'?
  12. Are there any articles that are easy to work on the Econ IA in the Microeconomics section?
  13. Wow, I haven't been on this site since I started MYP. It's great to be back here, this time as an IB student!! So we were recently introduced to our Global Politics IA (Personal Engagement Activity), and I'm semi-lost as this is a newly offered course at my school and no one's ever taught it before. My teacher isn't being that helpful in terms of the expectations and all, but I have a broad idea of what I need to do. We're expected to have proposals ready in the next couple of week and present them to our teacher for approval. As this is a relatively new course offered by the IB itself, t
  14. For the past 2 years I've been trying to complete my computer science IA based on very little support from my teacher. The class had never been taught how to code properly and more importantly how to make databases and make http requests. After lot's of struggle I have a quite poor Android Studio application that meets few success criteria of the client. I'm wondering If even with a detailed criterion B and planning stage I could get decent marks? The teacher gave the impression that without a perfectly functioning and complex programme that we would fail so all of my efforts have been to
  15. 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
  16. Hey guys, I have got 6 out of 24 from my chemistry internal assessment. I am not surprised, because it was soooo weak. I wonder what percentage of the points are taken for the final grade. Is there any one who can answer my question?
  17. URGENT, Guys, can anyone tell me the word count for ESS IA, or how much can be the appropriate word count for it??
  18. 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
  19. Hi guys! Recently our Computer Science teacher assigned us to find a topic and a client for our IA. I found my client who requested an android app that would let him save bills of the things he bought and track their warranty date. I liked this idea because it seemed manageable. However, when I presented this idea to my teacher he said that it is an alright idea but I don't have a chance of scoring more than a 5 for it. His reasoning was as follows: firstly, writing anything for android usually requires you to use APIs and supposedly IB tends to grade the projects using APIs poorly, se
  20. My topic for the internal assessment is “exploring gini coefficient and seeing correlations to development indicators in Asian countries” The issue with this is that I don’t quite understand the gini coefficient and I’m having doubts on whether I should continue with this topic or changing completely. Is gini coefficient overdone as a topic? I am genuinely interested in this topic if I could actually understand it. I would appreciate it if anyone could link some resources that explain how to use gini coefficient or suggest ideas for easier IA topics.
  21. Hello everyone, currently I am writing a new math IA and i decided to write it under the topic of Projectile Motion. What what I want to do is take a video of a setter (in volleyball) and him setting the ball up. I'll take that video and create a graph and will derive that function. The thing is, I think that this is a little to vague, and I really don't have a clue on what to really explore within my topic. For the volleyball idea, I wanted to originally see what's the best place to put the ball in the air to get a good hit in for the spiker. If you have any further suggestions on what e
  22. My aim is to understand the use of Pythagorean theorem and SOHCAHTOA in calculating the location of an end effector in 3d space. Any feedback is appreciated
  23. Okay so I am in HL Chem and I am worried my IA idea might be too simple or obvious. Basically I want to test if the temperature of water affects the rate of the Acid Base reaction between Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid in bath bombs. I would make the bombs myself to standardize the amount of everything that goes in and test a bunch of different times in water at different temperatures. Then I time the reaction to see how long it takes in each different temperature of water. My one concern is that it seems a bit too obvious that the temperature will affect the rate and I worry that it's jus
  24. Hi! I am having some trouble coming up with a topic for my business standard IA, does someone have any suggestions? What did you do for yours? Thanks!
  25. Hey guys, So I have a doubt about the tools I can use. So far it is, Ansoff Matrix, Force Field Analysis, SWOT Analysis and Decision tree. My questions is, can I make a proposed marketing mix for the business and use that as a tool? I was suggested it by someone but I would like your opinion on it, just to be sure. Thanks in advance.
