  1. Group 4 Friction Lab - did Johnny slip from the roof or was he pushed?

    If this force is greater than zero, such a fall is possible, and becomes more probable as the value of the force increases Given that Johnny's mass and the pitch of the roof are known, all that is left to discover is the coefficient of kinetic friction. This simple experiment involves dragging one material across another, and measuring the minimum amount of force required to do this at a constant velocity.

  2. Discuss the ways in which the main characters respond to change in at least two of the literary works you read. (Things Fall Apart & Death of A Salesman)

    He is afraid of being like his father, whom he views as weak, and he despises anyone like him, like his son Nwoye. When Christian missionaries arrive in Umuofia, Okonkwo immediately dislikes them, but the gentle 'new faith' immediately attracts susceptible Nwoye, and this causes for Okonkwo to shun his first son. When the white man tries to impose its culture on the Igbo culture and Umuofia does not go to war, Okonkwo kills himself. The one who responds to change in the most negative way in the book 'Death of a Salesman' is w***y Loman.

  3. Culture Shock

    The person has to get used to the conditions of eating, sleeping, working, communicating, entertaining...etc. even though he does not clearly know how. It takes him some time to be familiar with a new culture. This explains the disoriented feelings of most people being away from their own customs. For me, there have been a lot of changes in the language, the weather, the food and the people since the day I came to the US. During my first two weeks, I could not sleep before midnight due to the difference of time.

  4. Our practical was about examining the reaction of an enzyme in a particular type of food, in which the enzyme break down food and digest the existing proteins inside the materials (food). And to investigate the rate of the enzymes reaction when its get

    Second, it could still react with a wide range of different pH levels. Our experiment was based on the theory that implies: reactions of the enzyme with very high or very low pH level will be very slow. While the reaction reach its high speed if the pH level is at 8 which is called as the optimum of the rate of reaction of the Trypsin. Apparatus The material that is used to perform the experiment is Milk solution.

    To check how the rate of transpiration is affected by a change in the PH of the soil/water.

    This is the control. Take 10ml of distilled water. Pour a drop of paraffin wax into the test tube as this will prevent the water from evaporating in the sunlight. b. Pour 10ml of the dil.NaOH into this test tube followed by a drop of paraffin wax. c. Pour 10ml of the dil.HCl into this test tube followed by a drop of paraffin. d. Take 10ml of tap water and pour into this test tube. The PH of the tap water is taken to be 5.5 as seen using the PH paper.

  6. Environmental sciences Lab-1(Wet Stones Experiment)

    Method: * First we investigated what time to start the project since condensation level is high in the morning & therefore rocks would be wet in the morning. * Next, we searched through the beach for wet rocks * Different colours & sizes of rocks were collected to see the two above factors effect the temperature of the rocks. * 25 rocks were collected by our group * One by One rocks were kept on the Digital measuring machine & its weight were noted.

    Environmental sciences Lab-2(Stream Pollution)

    Hence contact with insects is not recommended. > Since current levels are high, any footwear in the stream such as flip-flops is not recommended. > Stones are wet & slippery, therefore rubber boots are recommended. Method: o First each site was marked in order to start the experiment. o Stream was divided into 5 sites in order to analyse the stream pollution index of the stream carefully & accurately. o For each site(1-5), Insects were searched & caught by a Net.

  8. HEAT TRANSFER IN SPORTS AIM: DETERMINING THE HEAT GIVEN OUT TO THE SURROUNDING WHILE PLAYING SQUASH AND TABLE TENNIS

    HYPOTHESIS Heat transfer is the process by which heat is given off from a body to the surrounding. When playing a sport, heat is normally generated as a biological mechanism to keep the body cool. Therefore in this experiment we sought to determine if this heat given off could be measured in an enclosed environment in order to determine the effectiveness of the structure in relation to the sport. We took two sports that can be played in an enclosed surrounding: squash and table-tennis. APPARATUS 1. Meter rule 2. Maximum and minimum thermometer 3. 3 Clinical thermometers 4.

  10. Investigating Hydrated Crystals.

    The texture after the heating appeared to look like ash, suggesting that it was dryer. Questions: (a) Calculate the mass of water in the hydrate. Total mass of water: Weight before heating - Weight after heating #4 48.72 � 0.02 - 47.75 � 0.02 = 0.97g Uncertainty of mass of water in hydrated salt: 0.02 + 0.02 = 0.04 Total mass of water = 0.97 � 0.04 (b) Compare the number of the anhydrous compound to the number of moles of water in the hydrate and use the ratio of these values to predict a formula of the hydrated compound.

  12. Ecosystems: Photosynthesis

    If it is green, then it photosynthesises. Some examples of these types of plants include the beach grass, shrubs, and maritime forest plants found on Plum Island. There is a huge range of plants that can photosynthesise, whether it be microscopic bacteria or extremely large trees. In every ecosystem, there are always active producers that photosynthesise. AIM The aim of this experiment will be to test the rate of photosynthesis using Gardenia Augusta Magnifica in a warmer environment against a cooler environment. HYPOTHESIS The rate of photosynthesis in a warmer environment will be faster than the rate of photosynthesis in a cooler environment.

The IB Diploma Programme is a demanding and robust programme of education which students follow at the ages of 16-19. The DP has been recognised as being a strong qualification by universities across the globe, and by leading employers. The DP ensures that students: develop their intellect with due ethical consideration, acquire a breadth of knowledge by studying subjects from 6 subject groups (unlike Advanced level where students generally choose three subjects), and undertake in-depth research into an area of personal interest.

The actual subjects studied include a choice of language, anadditional language, a social science, an experimental science and mathematics. In addition to this students then choose an either arts subject or can choose a second subject form the original 5 groups. Three core elements are also required: that extended essay, completion of the Theory of Knowledge course and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS), which is a range of activities which run alongside the academic programme. Assessment is completed by both internal means and by external examination. Each course is marked and students awarded a score between 1 (the lowest), to 7 (the highest). The diploma is awarded to students who achieve a score of at least 24 points.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, a widely accepted pre-university qualification, was developed in the 1960s as an educational standard for a globalising world. If you want to attend university in another country, or you just want to infuse your education with an international perspective, then the IB diploma could be a good option for you.

Excellent writing skills will be indispensable here: each course is partly assessed on written work, and students are required to submit an extended essay as well. To support you in all your writing endeavours, Marked by Teachers has amassed a collection of student-submitted IB essays covering everything fromthe group 4 projects to world literature. Study the teacher-marked and peer-reviewed examples to learn how to edit your own essays, and produce highly polished work.

After leaving school, you'll have the chance to attend university in another country if you wish; today, the IB diploma is recognised by over 2,000 institutions around the world. But even if you stay at home, you'll be well prepared to build a career in today's globalised economy.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
