  1. Going into jr year and class choices are due in a few weeks, please respond and thank you in advance to the ppl that do What sciences should I take and at what level if I wanna go into engineering or medical. Like what would be the best base for college? Also at what level should I take math? ^ 2 HL spots and 1 SL
  2. I am am work on my mathematics extended essay, and I want to do it on: 1. Coming up with a general formula for the volume of the five Platonic Solids (I need to know from other mathematics higher level students if this is two simple). 2. The proof(s) for Euler's polyhedron formula. 3. The Travelling Salesman Problem (not sure how much math is involved as opposed to computer science). I am most interested in the first but willing to drop it if it is too simple. I am also open to suggestions of other interesting topics in geometry (the subject I have the most interest in). I want to get some work done before the summer break ends in about 4 weeks, so I could really use some advice (especially considering my adviser has gone incognito).
  3. Which level math should I take if I want to be able to (on the side) take AP stats and calc ?
  4. I was talking to some of my friends and I told them that my EE was of probability. To be more precise it is of probability on a casino game named craps. My idea was to make an analysis on how the casino always has more chances of winning than the player. My concern is that they told me that this topic is not going to get me a good grade. What do you think?
  5. So I am trying to get my math IA done this summer but am having a hard time choosing a topic that I like. I am really interested in film and cinematography and would like to incorporate it in my math IA but have found nothing on math ia topics that involved film from past math IA topics. I decided that I would come up with my own math IA exploration that has not been done before. My topic/question is "Does movies/films that use the Fibonacci sequence and Golden Ratio make high profits compared to movies that don't?" Is this a good idea for a math IA topic? Could I make it better? Are there any other math IA topics that involve film or cinematography? Is there other ways I can involve film and cinematography in my IA like through geometry, conditional probability, etc.? What general topics make for a high marked IA? What makes for a good IA? Also these are my other topics for a math IA if film doesn't work out are: Modelling Infectious Diseases Medical Data Mining Finger Ratio Predicts Maths Ability? Modelling a Nuclear War Are these good topics that could get a high mark? Between 18/20 to 20/20? I am also interested in a topic in healthcare/medicine. Any topic ideas for that? All replies are appreciated, Thanks.
  6. So I'm currently a freshman (9th Grade) taking Algebra II/Trig, and was wondering which math class to take next year (10th Grade). The choice is between SL or HL math. I have gotten pretty different information from various sources. Plan #1: 10th Grade: SL Math 11th Grade: HL Math 1 12th Grade: HL Math 2 Plan #1: 10th Grade: HL Math 1 11th Grade: HL Math 2 12th Grade: AP Stats My guidance counselor recommended that I do plan #1 because I have consistently gotten good scores in Math, but others have told me that plan #2 was better because I would take three years of IB math, rather than two. So I'm rather conflicted with my choice right now. Thanks for any input!
  7. Hi all! I am a 11th grader and a Math HL student. I have chosen to model traffic flow using cellular automaton as the topic of my Math EE. However I am not sure how deep can I go and whether my topic is advanced enough to become an EE topic (my school's Math group teachers allowed me to do this topic, but I would like more opinions), because I still have a lot of things to learn about it. What's more, I have looked through some related essays, but I did not find many proves of mathematical theories. Most of them contain mainly words and graphs of cellular automaton, so I am not sure whether my topic contains enough mathematics theories and proves to write a Math EE. By the way, my supervisor said that since there are already such models, I can improve upon them by adding more considerations. But I am not sure how complex should the model be in order to be advanced enough and meanwhile allow me to handle the model well. (Sorry, English is not my first language. My language may not be used properly, so there may be some confusions in my description) Thanks for your help!
  8. I am currently doing math SL and I have a weak 3 (IB year 1 term 3) my teacher and the IB coordinator are both telling me to drop to studies. I would honestly love to go there but I want to do finance in UNI. whenever I ask my counselor about it she is somewhat vague and due to my introverted self I just nod and leave. my grades in economics Hl are quite average they do not really rise or fall. always at a strong 5. My question is can I do math studies and still get a good university where I can do finance or should I just continue to miserably fail math SL? I do: English lang&lit HL(5), French B HL(5), Economics HL(6) psychology SL(5), Biology SL(6), Math SL(3)
  9. I'm a month into IB and my classes so far are: HL Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Arabic B; SL Economics and English LL. However, I've been rethinking what I want to do in the future and have been moving away from engineering/physics towards more Maths and computer science. If I decide to drop chemistry for comp sci, my schedule will be as follows: HL Maths, Physics, English LL; SL Comp Sci, Economics, Spanish AB. My school doesn't offer computer science Higher Level. I'm worried that this setup is not as strong as the first one with regards to me applying for mathematics at Oxford. Also, without CS HL, there is no way I can apply for CS at Oxford and be taken seriously. Thoughts?
  10. I’m a matric student going into IB and I’m taking economics, business management, physics and math and I have no strong base on any of the subjects. But I am willing to do watever it takes to get above 35 in IB
  11. So, I think it's past the 24-hour period for both paper 1 and 2, and would like to hear other people's opinions on the math papers. I personally think paper 1 was considerably better, and paper two was more difficult. But I have heard very varied opinions on both papers, and kinda wanted to see the general view of their difficulty. Feel free to comment anything you want, (as long as it is about these papers xd) Strmblsd

    Math IA Ideas

    Hey guys! I need some help finding some ideas to do for my Math IA. I take Math SL and I want to do something that correlates with medicine. Can you guys please help find something to do? I am very lost nad could really use the help.
  13. Hi! Okay so I know that each year IB releases the conversions for last year and for SL math (and most papers I think) and for the 2017 conversions they had conversions for paper 1, paper 2 and final. What conversions do they actual use to mark your paper? Do they determine your level using the Paper 1 and Paper 2 conversions or the final conversions?
  14. Hi, I am in dire need of help with selecting my math ee topic. I currently have in mind brachistochrone curves, but I can't think of a suitable RQ.
  15. Geometrical designs used by architects in different places of the world. Math is a tool through which beauty can be calculated using ratios and therefore architects use geometry and many other mathematical concepts to build buildings. Some concepts to explore are geometric proofs, constructions, the Golden Ratio, and the Fibonacci Series.
  16. I really need more answers for my survey, my IA deadline is soon, I hope you can fill out my survey really quick!!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe7IuEph8ScgYcmxBfkcb0tid41fV1i1mycGQ-WJdw5q2s2Zw/viewform?usp=sf_link Thank you for your time!
  17. I need some more responses for my Math IA, so I would really appreciate if you would quickly fill out my survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe7IuEph8ScgYcmxBfkcb0tid41fV1i1mycGQ-WJdw5q2s2Zw/viewform?usp=sf_link Thank you for your time!
  18. Hello everybody, So i did the IB exams may 2017 and I ended up with a final result of 27 points which I am quite pleased with considering how I really struggled throughout the programme and was predicted to fail. However, the only grade I don't like is the grade 2 I got in Maths SL. I really regret taking SL and wish would have taken Studies instead. I am actually going to resit Maths SL and although I have studied, it has been a struggle to do so independently. I am interested in applying for UK unis in 2019 and I have found several unis that accept 27 points. (I want to study architecture). Anyway, my question is, if I don't manage to get a better grade, can they overlook my 2 in Maths? I am thankful for your answers.
  19. I have the exams in 1 month and did not start studying yet. I am extremely scared about the exams and dont believe i have sufficient time to study for them properly. I do math hl and physics hl and still did not revise anything. I believe i will fail the exams or get really low grades. I may be dramatic but i dont know what to do. Do i have time? How can i do this?
  20. So I really suck at math and I'd like to know if there are any good sites that provide SL math IB problems with answers? I find the textbook problems are kinda pointless because I can do well in that but always do horrible on my tests (which are IB questions) Thanks!
  21. please someone answer me so i can decide whether or not i should spend 30 dollars investing in this website, is it worth it? is it a good website? or am i being scammed?
  22. Hey, So I have been doing HL math for about the last 6 months of so, and I have done Topic 1, Topic 2, and Topic 3, and I more or less understand the topics, but the problem is when it comes to tests or quizzes I dont know how to attempt these questions, its like I have never seen them before. Can someone guide me on how I can study and learn these question as I am about 2-3 grade points under where I want to be. Thanks.
  23. Hello people, I know I will sound crazy/weird, but is it possible to self-study HL mathematics? My school does not teach the HL math, and so I am 'stuck' with SL. I really enjoy maths and I am quite pretty good at it. Also, I want to be a chemical engineer, so HL Chem, Phys, and Math are highly recommended. I am already doing HL Chem and Phys, which is satisfactory for most of the universities, but I really feel like I should also do HL Math. Thank you for your answers
  24. Hi, I am going into IB for the 2018-2019 school year. I have a general idea of what I want my course to be, HL Chem HL Bio HL Lang/Lit HL Geography SL Math SL Spanish My main concern is SL Math, currently I am in Honors PreCalculus and I hear that a good part of SL Math will be what I learned this year in HPC. I am on the fence for math, I want to do HL, but I also want to double on science and keep geography to raise my grade. For the future, I want to go to Medical School, so I think the double science is important. I wonder what you guys think about my current plan and your plan. Thanks!
  25. Hello, I am looking to study civil engineering (and eventually environmental engineering) in Germany (no specific university). I currently take high level physics, ITGS and mathematics in IB1. However, I am not the best at the type of math I am studying and as a result I got a mid-4 on my mid term exam. On the first term I got a 6/7. Although these grades seem sufficient, I personally struggle a lot with the material and know my situation is only going to deteriorate as material becomes extensive and more difficult. I would like to ask if high level mathematics is absolutely necessary in most German universities for engineering, because, after looking at standard level math material, I am sure I can get a minimum of a 6 in standard math. Dropping high math would also allow me to focus more on my sciences, high physics and standard chemistry (high chemistry after dropping high math). So I would much rather get high grades in standard math than struggle and possibly fail high math, but if I have to take it then I will do my best to achieve a good grade. I did some research already but did not find such details. I did find that a 37 in the IB is the minimum recommended grade for most universities, and I doubt this will be possible for me in high level math. 1a) Does anyone know if HL math is required for engineering in German universities? 1b) If so, what is the minimum grade? 2a) What is a recommended/suggested grade to get for the end of IB1 for engineering? It would be nice to have a known minimum to exceed. Thank you for your time!
