Extended Essay Outline
This is just a very brief outline. Much more detail can be obtained from the appropriate I.B. publications.
Give a clear title which says exactly what the essay is about.
Be precise. For example, if the essay is about transistors, "Transistors" is not a suitable title! Be sure to state the particular aspect of their behaviour you will describe; perhaps "The effect of temperature variations on the performance of transistor amplifiers".
On a separate sheet, a few sentences stating:
Give a clear set of subtitles to the various parts of the essay, including page numbers.
Separated into sections with subtitles (as stated above) starting with a general introduction to the subject. Number and label all diagrams, Fig.1, Fig.2 etc.
If you do practical work, include a complete experiment description in the usual way; title, method, conclusions etc.
The last section of the essay is the conclusion. This gives a concise summary of the essay and repeats any conclusions to be drawn from the experiments performed.
Give detailed reference to all sources used in your research.
