  1. hey. im currently in my IB1 year and take physics as an HL. my only problem is that MY TEACHER DOESNT TEACH???!???!?! he just asks us to read whats on the powerpoint slide that he took from a website, then he takes a look at an example and briefly explain how and why they got that answer. he just doesn't make sense and I really dont want his teaching to affect how well I do. Im currently struggling a lot and I need help before its too late. does anyone know any good websites/ tutoring videos that can help me ?? PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!
  2. Hey guys, I need advise or opinions on my Physics EE plan. I’m considering about investigating the effect of drag force and Magnus effect on a projectile motion of a tennis ball. Is this a advisable EE topic, or is it too simple for an EE? I was worried if this fits more on an IA rather than an EE. Thanks a lot!
  3. I'm in IBDP year 2 and we're in the process of finalizing our IAs. We got our feedback for our first drafts and my teacher told me my IA can't get above a 5. I don't know why my teacher approved my topic in the first place knowing I couldn't score well, but alas, here we are. The problem is that my topic is super simple. I was investigating the acceleration of a falling mass on a ramp, which is really basic for a HL IA. Regardless, I'm not opposed to just restarting with a new reasearch question, but I have no idea what else I can do with the data I have. My investigation was changing the

    Physics EE

    For my physics EE I decided to look at gravity and stability(my topic) and "how does the loading of a truck affects the shift of the central gravity and how that shift affects the tipping point of a truck if its in a stationary position?"(research question) . For my experiment I've used blocks of different masses that I placed on a aluminium platform using different variation. Where aluminium platform is like a truck platform and the blocks that I used act like loading. So basically I placed them in different ways and looked at the which angle each object will tip over. In my essay I will show
  6. Hi! I'm in Grade 11 and I'm having a little bit of a crisis about my HL subjects. I'm highly interested in both biomedical engineering and medicine as future career options, but I don't know which combination of science HLs I should take in order to increase my chance of success in these fields. Currently, I'm taking Biology and Chemistry in HL, but I'm wondering if I should switch my Biology to Physics HL while the missed workload from Physics is still manageable, even though the thought of dropping Biology pains me. I've been deeply passionate about science all my life and scored c
  7. Hello, I am currently self-studying three* subjects for May 2019 as I want to apply for German Universities, for which I needed subjects that my school does not offer. Before registering me with my subjects: Math HL: Option Calculus (self-studied as my school olny offered math studies), Physics HL: Option Engineering Physics (completely self-studied with support from an IB teacher from another school), English B HL (with extra work as my School only offered sl and support from my teacher), History HL, Environmental Systems and Societies SL and Spanish A: Literature SL, I sent a mai
  8. I want to pursue CS HL and go in the field of robotics, so I have chosen Physics HL, Maths AA (For those who don't know, AA stands for Application Analysis, maths has been divided into AA and AI HL/ SL) HL, CS HL, Psychology SL, English SL and French SL. What are the basic requirements an MYP student should have to take CS HL? (For example, we should know HTML, CSS, Python etc.)
  9. Hi, My school is offering Astrophysics, but I am really considering Imaging. Is imaging suggested or how easy is it?
  10. Hi, I am learning physics HL. And my school has provided me with Oxford 2014 Physics Course Companion by David Homer and Michael Bowen-Jones, but I feel it misses out some topics or content as per syllabus. So is there any better book? Please suggest...
  11. Hey, could you look over my subject selections? I want to do cosmology and astrophysics in Uni. Physics HL Maths HL/Further if possible English HL Chemistry SL French AB Business Management SL
  12. hello, I'm facing a huge problem in deciding what to do for my physics EE. i thought of many topics but nothing seems to fit into the criteria of a good topic. the latest one i thought of was: "to what extent is it true that a body, which initially moves at a particular speed starts moving with a speed closer to that of light, makes the factors of time dilation and length contraction become evident?" I am really confused about what to do.as my school doesn't have any proper apparatus for a good experimental topic.
  13. Hi, I am doing the IB program in Chennai, India, and I am halfway through year. My subject choices are: HL Mathematics HL Chemistry HL Physics SL English Literature SL French Abinitio SL ITGS I'm aiming for a 7 in all subjects. When is an ideal time to start working on the Internal Assessments and is there any guide which I can follow to ensure that it matches up to the criteria required? I am also planning to do my EE in either physics or chemistry. Would taking a HL subject for an EE be too stressful? Also, for my ITGS IA, my teacher recommends making
  14. I was planning on making a solid fuel rocket for my internal assessment and experimenting with momentum. So can I do experiments with rocket again on EE but this time it would be about aerodynamics or maybe a water rocket (I know its too simple for EE but I can't think of any other at the moment) for example?

    Physics IA

    Hi, just wanted to now for physics IA hl can I use a database that already has the recquired data as my own data.Obviously I'll mention that I got the information from that database, but still, would I be going against any rules?
  16. Hey Guys I'm halfway through my IBDP, i will be writing my summative exams for Grade 11 in May. I'm currently in math HL, but i'm scoring quite bad. I am considering shifting to Math SL, but i will have to push another subject to HL. I considered Econ for HL, but too much is already done. My best route, now is to take English HL. Should i make the move? In what way will it affect my college application, if i'm going to take engineering? My current subjects are (Math, Physics, Chemistry: as HL); (Economics, Spanish Ab, English as SL). I am extremely confused, as i'm able to score pretty w
  17. Hi everyone! I'll be taking the IB soon (sadly) and I'll have to choose between Physics and Chemistry for my last HL. I'm hoping to major in Architecture and already have Geography and Literature as my other two HLs. I'm interested in both subjects and generally get roughly the same scores for both of them (though slightly higher for Chemistry). In terms of rigour and appropriateness for my future major, what would you really suggest?
  18. Hey guys!! So as it is July, my November exams are only a few months away. Currently, my worst subject is physics HL. I find it really difficult to grasp (and memorise) all the different concepts and I'm slightly stressed out at the moment as the only topics I'm kinda confident in are topics 2, 3 and 4. So my current plan is to go through the Oxford textbook and take summary notes of each topic. Then after taking the summary notes I plan on doing questions for that topic. I'm not sure how effective this method would be, and it would also be very time consuming. Also I heard that the

  20. Hello fellow sufferers, right now I am facing the GREATEST dilemma. I am starting the IB programme in September and have thankfully already decided on my SL subjects (World Arts and Cultures, Greek, English A Lang. & Lit.). I have also decided to take Math HL and Physics HL (both of them are requirements for undergraduates wanting to study Physics or Engineering). So now I have to decide on whether to choose Biology or Computer Sciences on HL. My parents do everything they can to get me to choose Bio, although both of them know I would be better in C.S. And yes, I do have a more posit
  21. Hey guys, I was planning on taking HL Physics for IB. I'm unsure about the difficulty of this subject because everyone says its really hard. I am not GREAT at physics but I like it and I think if I put in the effort i can definitely manage, but is it really as hard as everyone says it is? I'm pretty worried already. :/
  22. Hello IB Survival, I need help for deciding my EE topic, I am in Physics HL, very interested in engines, specifically for Motorcycles. Wanted to know if anyone could help me for deciding a topic and even a possible Question. I was thinking on mostly Work Done or the Efficiency of the engine. Thanks ahead if I don't thank you later
  23. So basically I've been doing four HLs, and I'm not feeling incredibly swamped or anything, but I can't guarantee that I will get 7 in all of them. I want to study Computer Engineering, so Physics HL would definitely be recommended, but my physics teacher is terrible and I don't believe he can finish anywhere near the curriculum in time. Furthermore I feel that he doesn't like me... he's marked multiple assessments of mine incorrectly and doesn't like listening to me when I ask what I did wrong. Even though Physics is a good HL to have I don't feel he will support me through my four HLs. Sho
  24. Yooooooooooo! I've once again found another question about waves that I'm unable to answer. This one is from November 2009 HL paper 1. I know how to do number 14, that's a pretty basic one; however, I'm stuck on number 15. The answer is supposed to be B (0.8 cm), does anyone understand how to get to that answer? If so, could you explain? Thank you in advance CHEERS!
