What is Group 4 Project?

  • What is Group 4 Project?
  • Project stages
    • Planning
    • Action
  • Research Question
  • Poster Exhibition
  • Reflection
  • It is a collaborative activity where students from different G4 subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) work together on a scientific topic, allowing for concepts and perceptions from across the disciplines to be shared.
  • TED Ankara College
  • to develop and apply your information and communication technology skills (ICT) in the study of science, (Aim 7)
  • to raise your awareness of the moral, ethical, social, economic and environmental implications of using science and technology, (Aim 8)
  • to encourage an understanding of the relationships between scientific disciplines and the overarching nature of the scientific method. (Aim 10)
  • TED Ankara College
  • to decide the main focus, make sure that all the subjects are included.
  • to decide which practical activities you will carry out and what equipment you will need… You should communicate with the appropriate science technician and teacher.
  • to keep communicating among yourselves… You need to let others in your group know how your part of the project is going!
  • TED Ankara College

10 hour activity is allocated to the G4 project which can be divided into three stages:

  • 10 hour activity is allocated to the G4 project which can be divided into three stages:
  • Planning (2 hrs)
  • Action (6 hrs)
  • Evaluation (2 hrs)
  • TED Ankara College

      • Since we have large group of IB students, the subject will be selected by science teachers.
  • Then, you must decide what subtitle that you will study during G4 project. The subtitles of the three subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) must be as related as possible.
  • TED Ankara College

  • All investigations should be simple enough to be carried out in school lab conditions.
  • The activities that will be carried out must be clearly defined before moving from the planning stage to the action stage.
  • At the experimental stage, apparatus should be specified so that there is no delay in carrying out the action stage.
  • TED Ankara College
  • TED Ankara College
  • There are 226 IB students. 185 from Mathematics-Science and 42 from Turkish-Mathematics track.
  • Each group may have a different number of students depending on the number of students in each class.
  • Only one student must be from Turkish-Mathematics (TM) track.
  • It is your responsibility to build your groups.

  • Energy
  • Assume a group picked the subtitle
  • "Light energy“

  • In Physics, students are investigating “how is the angle of deflection affects the rate of photosynthesis of Elodea canadensis .
  • The correct form of the RQ is; “how does the angle of light deflection affects the rate of photosynthesis of Elodea canadensis by measuring the volume of oxygen gas produced.
  • TED Ankara College

In Chemistry, students are investigating “how does the exposure to light affect the Vitamin C in orange juice by determining the vitamin C content by titrating it with iodine solution.”
