You mentioned chaos theory and determinism; these do seem like very interesting topics, but I don't know what kind of mathematics I could use with them. Homosexuality and equal protection under the law 61. Maybe looking into free birthing and whether this is dangerous despite women giving birth in this way for centuries? As far as the maths of chaos theory, I remember taking one look at some of the actual maths and I never went back. The depth of knowledge required is not quite university-level but you will be needing to get your own primary sources. Does an adversarial court system really determine truth? Pornography: is there such a thing in and of itself? The profit motive: just a way of life. Grade A To what extent are medications exploited with those who have mental health illnesses? Are there class differences in criminal behavior? Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do? Should the subject matter of Criminology be limited to the existing legal conceptions of crime? Sorry for the wall of text and all my personal bias against the qualification, I just had lots of teachers breathing down my neck for a long time trying to get me to do what I considered totally useless.
Other flair will be deleted without warning, repeat offenders will be banned. Flair should only be used for location information. Your suggestion about researching the different methods of synthesis was a good one however, I will probably include a section on that! Thanks for your post, it was very helpful. And if you do get weary of it like me and many others taking the class did and consider dropping it, make sure you don't write about it in your personal statement or anything like that, just in case. Can you determine the number of cylinders from this? Do you have any suggestions — if so it would be greatly appreciated.
We expect each student to develop their own ideas and we delight in any project concept that is both original and that pushes beyond the boundaries of A level. Remember that the final choice of project will be made jointly with your supervisor and that anything requiring too many, or expensive extra resources is likely to be turned down. I would try to research different ways of synthesising Ibuprofen and then discussing the methods, their costs involved and ways to minimise the costs, and maybe and other ethical maybe? Thanks for telling me about the personal statement. Do inmates give up all their rights when incarcerated? Determinism does sound very interesting, but I'd really like to have a fair bit of mathematics in there. Will it get too hard for me? I've started learning about the Lorentz transformation but that's about it. And if you really wanted to you could slip a bit of maths in there without it getting too heavy.
At the time it was enjoyable and I thought it was worth it as I got a B for my final piece and presentation and it really helped me begin independent learning and learning how to reference before going to University. Does it actually have to be accessible to every audience? What does the way a society responds to crime tell us about that society and its values. Edit: For what it's worth, I applied to university to study Physics. I'm guessing you're from Britain, I am too, and I tried to do an extended project on a physics topic. I know how to do some of the mathematics involving those topics but my physical understanding of them is not so great.
Is it one of those titles that is usually a question? You pretty much just need a project that will have more than one opinion on the matter, so that you can explain both sides and then say where you stand and why. There are some really good podcasts on iTunes of lectures from oxford on quantum mechanics to break you in, and the guy explains it all pretty clearly. Rules: Violating a rule will result in a ban. Is our imprisonment system pathological? You will be able to find most of what you need on these forums and wikipedia to be honest, but for the purpose of the project you will have to find other sources where you can say you got the information from as you need a diverse range of sources for a good grade :P silly, isn't it? Why some people are more inclined to be discriminative than others and whether it can be helped. Prosecutors and Defense Lawyers: adversaries or coworkers? What kind of mathematics was involved in chaos theory? What kind of controversial title do you have to choose? My worry is that I don't know if I can understand that mathematics in at most a couple months time. The social organization of people in a prison 59. Understanding crime through literature 22.
It's quite unnecessarily complex at this sort of level for what can be summarised very easily with words. I did mine on sign language in animals and other communications with animals and the interspecies language barrier. However, there is only really one successful treatment of autism which is behavioural therapies. I could determine the speed of gravity. The work must be mostly theoretical and fairly interesting enough for me to be able to work on for an entire year. Before we start, I ought to tell you about my own project which is now near completion.
Correctional Treatment: is there anything to measure? The synthesis of ibuprofen is probably not a great idea, what you want it to be is something 'flavour of the month' that is clearly above the syllabus. Good luck : A historical angle on this would be interesting, many possibilities. A historical angle on this would be interesting, many possibilities. Constitutional issues and Due Process 30. Good luck : Thanks, this was a really helpful post. I made up the Pope story. I have my interview tomorrow, so about 12 hours to decide; with sleep, that's about 2 hours.
The biggest benefit is how much it prepares you for University style learning. It was really fun, but I didn't know what I was doing with it, my essay went off in a lot of directions and the formatting and referencing was quite bad; had to do a lot of work on it in the final week to get it up to standard. My title concerns the originality of the first novel in the trilogy, so in the most basic terms: is Suzanne Collins a copycat? It definitely helped me in terms of my university application - it gave me something to talk about and showed my ability to research and write projects - i. I was thinking that perhaps I could do an extension of the experiment that I did in this thread. For example in investigating mental health issues, it's likely research would've included a type of survey which could be too sensitive for someone to complete and made a participant uncomfortable.
I also heard someone jokingly say on another forum not in response to me to do it about string theory. I found it particularly tiresome trying to come up with any title that related to the topics that I was thinking of that could be written in this way. The purpose and effect of police professionalism 56. Someone on another forum suggested I do an experiment on Special Relativity but I'm not sure how I would do this. It can be on any topic, from clay animation to the pyramids of Egypt. I ended up doing my dissertation on it instead though.
It wasn't too much of a time drain, I still managed to keep up with my other subjects at the same time. I discovered that the starting point of some drugs, is Salicylic Acid Google if you don't know already. If you can determine the speed of gravity, that should be good for a Nobel and a full scholorship to Oxford. My initial thoughts When initially thinking about doing an Extended project qualification, I was unsure of what subject and topic to follow. My understanding of string theory is not too great in terms of the mathematics I know about it, pretty much nothing I think. I'm not really sure exactly how you could get the maths in in a way that would be relevant, since determinism is more a philosophical debate.
