    interesting topic.

    actually the usual thing really isn't to read 20 books and emailing Yale professors. more like 3-4 books and skim them to get the idea. :p: but OMG, you emailed Yale professors???? where on earth did you get the emails?

    i've narrowed it down to 2 options, still don't know which one to pick though:
    "To what extent are recursive mathematics used in fractals?" (Mathematics)
    or
    "To what extent are recursive algorithms used in fractals?" (Computer Science)
    any advice? do they sound alright for topics?

    I did "How and why have medicine prices changed in Mexico in the 2001-2005 period?" It was Economics and had a lot of fun doing it! Discovered some pretty shocking stuff when talking to people in the government and pharmaceutical companies.

    IBstuck, lots of people at my school are doing bilingual diploma so lots have done EEs on other languages. If you just learnt it though, it's not really a good idea to do that.

    Tirte__456, try to do something simple with experiments easy to do perhaps? With sciences, the experiments take quite a bit of time and you need lots of repetitions for a good set of results. Try finding something that you can control, stuff like enzymes or plants instead of animals (plus it's not a good idea to do animals for EE because you need to be responsible, take care of it, feed it, take it for walks, tuck it into bed, and you can't do anything cruel to them or you'd get thrown in prison).

    Hi guys. I am new here. Glad I found this forum... Congrats to everybody who had finished their EE's. I have to hand in my extended essay topic this monday and I am still so clueless.

    I'm in IB1, and I am deciding to do Visual Arts. I've found a lot of sample topics but none of them seem to interest me see I dont really prefer talking about its history.. not so into art history.

    i was thinking of something more like digital art or.. graphic design or .. something like photography

    Does anybody have any ideas? i'm just so confused right now..

    Hey carriez118, I didn't do art myself but I heard most people did something with art history. The reason is probably because it's easier to do a 4000 word essay on art history topics.

    On your topics, you need to really narrow it down and be much more specific. For example if you're doing photography you might want to do something like "how does light intensity affects the mood of the subject in black and white/colour photography?" So then maybe you can experiment with the lighting itself, exposure time or the way you process develop the photographs (leaving the pictures longer in the solutions, etc). An art history topic might be something like "how did architecture styles change from 19... to 19... in Brunei and what influenced these changes?" Doesn't have to be about how styles of painting changed you know?

    In my opinion, with digital art and graphic design there's not really much to say.

    Haha, I just noticed Milkyway's topic. That's definitely interesting :p: What did you find out? Heard people asking art teachers about that before.

    I did mine in chemistry:
    "A kinetic study on the rate of degradation of ascorbic acid in commercial orange juice".
    Basically used kinetics to explain how different conditions affect the concentration of ascorbic acid. I calculated a value for the activation energy and looked into the role of copper(II) catalysis as affection the process of oxidation

    i think that would be so hard, especially living in america where it is not a requierment by the public schools to even learn a second language, the only reason i started taking a second language i because of IB and i am so glad i did.

    Hi! I'm in IB year 1 and i'm thinking of doing my extended essay- in history-on suffrage. I might write a comparison between Britain and the U.S. in the 1920's or compare britain from the '20's and a Middle eastern country in the 21st century. Does anyone have any other ideas on a specific area of women's suffrage that i can write my EE on? Thanks.

    Btw, i think it is really amazing and cool that we are all from different parts of the world and we are on this one site to discuss the EE.

    This doesn't seem to fit into History then, it sounds more like some social science (psych/sociology I don't know). In history you can't talk about events that happened less than 15 years before the present so you can't talk about the 21st century at all.
