  1. Is finding the derivative of trigonometric/circular functions, like the sine and cosine functions, part of the Math SL syllabus? Is this the level of Math SL or is it more advanced? I'm thinking of doing this in my calculations for my IA. Would it work?
  2. Hello I take maths SL and my homework for the winter break was to come up with a topic for the IA. I'm considering f/stops in photography which has something to do with geometric sequences and some mathematical explanation why these stop numbers make sense. It seems good enough, I guess, but my concern is that it's not very authentic. May I have your opinions, please? Hadassah
  3. I've been asked to come up with an IA for Maths, and I was thinkng about combining a topic with DT as I wish to do product design at university. If anyone had any idea big or small it would be very useful.
  4. I have chosen to do my EE on maths. I need some advice on what to do, I have submitted numerous topics for all of them to get rejected. The same reason is given and it is that it is not heavily based in mathematics. If anyone could help tweak one of my topics so it would be perfect as I am struggling quite a bit and I can not get help from my advisor as it is their first year doing this because the advisor I was expecting to get stopped doing EEs. My proposals have been: Geometry behind renaissance architecture, permutation groups and diamond quality, distributions of chance in game show games, statistical analysis of the premier league and use a general rule to predict a champion. If possible I would like to do the group theory one as that has always interested me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi all, I made a google classroom that is categorized into 6 modules for covering some interesting questions in IB HL. what I'm trying to do is to give you guys questions for each topic, hopefully every day. And I will always attach video solutions for them. Here is the code for you to join: 5btf45 Here is some nice question you can attempt on trigonometry: Question: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DpdllFl3wkIDNwVDaUSQokN_FC0pUh5t Solution: https://drive.google.com/open?id=13b3TVJYID4KsdUvJRQRNL6KUOoyNiYNS Hopefully you will get some help by the classroom. Any comment/advice will be much appreciated. Thank you! P.s. please make sure you join with your private gmail account. School domain address won’t let you join. p.p.s. you can share the code with your friends too
  6. SO I have been doing maths SL since the beggining of the year (I'm on grade 11/Year 12). I really want to study Design and Product Design in Uni and was wondering if I need SL for Design/Product Design Courses. The reason I want to drop to Maths Studies is for the simple reason that Art, Design Technology, and Maths SL takes most of the time. This decision is stressing me out as I'm scared Unis would reject my request for my maths studies. I don't think I ever got more than a 4 on maths SL. Any suggestions? My subjects are: Visual Arts (HL) Design technology (HL) Business Management (SL) English B (HL) Spanish Literature A (SL) Maths (SL) Theory of Knowledge (TOK)
  7. 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.
  8. Hello, Could anyone send their end of unit tests for maths hl? I want to use them to practice. Would be really helpful. Please
  9. How old can data for IA be? Is 2015 acceptable? I can't find it in criteria.
  10. Hi! So, I have been thinking of possible Maths IA topics for quite a while and have just decided to do it on Vectors (because I'm relatively better at it?). I have heard that quite a few game developers utilise vectors during the game development process, and so it would be in my greatest interest to base my IA on vectors in video games. However, I'm not quite sure on how to go about writing this. I have a basic outline of the structure of my IA (start with 2D then advance to 3D), but I'm starting to worry that it may not be as good as a topic as I hoped it would be. Could someone tell me if this is a feasible topic? What should I do to maybe add more depth to this investigation? Thank you!
  11. Hi! my maths ee councilor cant help me find any ideas with my math EE. I like puzzles and riddles, do you have any ideas?
  12. Hey! What do the CalTech Admissions people look for in a candidate? How do I maximise my chances of getting in? Any CalTech Alumni here, I would love your advice.
  13. Hey, I am currently giving maths tuitions to a 10 year old who has ADHD and am struggling with it. I was wondering if any of you either have ADHD or have experience with such classmates could give me some advice? Would really appreciate your help . Thank you!
  14. I have currently chosen to investigate tidal waves for my maths IA. However, I am unsure as to what other explorations I can do under this. (And whether or not this is too simple...) Is modelling and predicting future tidal waves appropriate? I have secondary sources that'll give me data of tides at different points in times at a beach, so I will be able to graph them. I will also use trig and algebra to find the ideal time to visit the beach with my "ideal" tidal height of 1.5 metres I am uncertain as to what other maths/exploration I can apply to this Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Hey everyone. So next year I’m going into the IB with- English A Literature, Chinese B, Economics, Chemistry, Maths HL and Physics. I really wanted to do Film HL but I thought it’s better to keep my options open and do two sciences instead as I would like to study engineering or medicine in uni. So im just wondering, would doing HL maths, physics and chemistry be way too much? I really love maths and I’m pretty decent at it. I’m also pretty good with managing workloads and im really interested in sciences but I still want to get a good final grade. Or would it be better to swap HL chemistry for HL Economics? Thanksss
  16. Hi, So I'm in 2nd year IB and I planning to apply for the London School of Economics, accounting and finance for 2018 admissions. For accounting and finance, they said on the website they require 38 points, with 6, 6, 6 in HL. I take HL econ, english B and maths, where I am predicted to get 7, 6, 5 respectively. So, because LSE is wanting a 6 in HL maths, and I am only predicted a 5, will I be kicked out immediately? and, if I actually do get a 6 in HL maths in the final exam is the result going to change in the end, like if I make a phone call or something will they consider me on letting me in or not? Thanks!
  17. In my school, you have to submit a World Studies EE proposal, and I have no idea what to submit, but I know that I most likely want to do something around the areas of Maths and Economics. What are some potential concepts/ideas that combine these two disciplines together and do you have any sources for them. I genuinely am considering this option since I like both the subjects, but have no idea what to research on.
  18. Hey, I need to collect data of many students for my Maths IA and would be really glad if some people could quickly fill it out. It's completely anonymous and only takes around 1 minute to complete:) https://goo.gl/forms/D5HvaJpxtSFxZdgt1
  19. I started the IB almost three months ago and I chose from the beginning to do maths SL. Now I regret that decision so much. I really wish I could switch from maths SL to HL but is it actually possible? I read that once you have started with Marhs SL you cant upgrade to HL but I haven’t asked to the IB coordinator yet. My Maths teacher thinks it wouldn’t be a problem for me to switch to HL and I really want it because I feel like I’m not using my full potential and I’m so frustrated. Maths SL is too easy for me and I’m above the level of the class. I don’t want to stay in the SL class if it’s still possible to pass to HL maths.

    Recommendation letters

    Hi, I'm thinking to applying to British universities for the course of accounting and finance. I was initially thinking to have my economics teacher write my recommendation letter but I read on the page from LSE for accounting and finance that you would be assessed on high numeracy skills and on strong analytical skills. So, I started to think that maybe I should get my maths teacher write my recommendation letter. I have good relationship with both the teachers and I take the 2 subjects as my HL courses, but I am doing better in Economics than in maths. What do you guys think?? Any suggestion/advice is very much appreciated!!
  21. Hi! I'm considering taking econ SL or HL. I think I would like the subject but I'm not good t maths and I'm wondering if this would hinder to success in the subject. I found SL maths in preIB quite difficult and I'm going to take studies in the IB. How big of a role does maths play in econ and is there a difference in the amount of maths between SL and HL? Thanks already in advance!
  22. I'm considering taking maths studies next year, because Maths really hurts my brain although I am able to score well, I do not enjoy it one bit. I am not pursuing a degree with anything to do with Mathematics, so I feel like this will be right for me and I will have time to focus on on my other subjects. However, I've heard a lot of negative things about maths studies, people are telling me that although I am pursuing a degree without mathematics, it will hinder my application to universities. How much truth is there in this? My current subject choices are: English A Literature HL Japanese A Literature HL Visual Arts HL Psychology SL Biology SL Maths Studies SL If i would like to enter a top university, preferably an ivy league one or UK's oxbridge, is this okay? Especially since I intend to go into languages or the arts, I've always assumed that they will not regard my mathematics. Top universities are very competitive these days. In a way, will I lose out to other potential candidates with a higher mathematics level than me, pursuing the same non-maths course? Or will they focus more on the overall IB score? I have to submit my choices very soon and any help or insight will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much!
  23. Hi! The Maths teachers in our school said for SL IA's, we could base our IA's on statistics and use formulas like Pearson's and Spearman's and Chi-squared (not in the SL curriculum but is in Maths Studies). However, they said we have to explain the steps of each equation, as in like why do you need to multiply d^2 by 6 in Spearman's rank. Is this really necessary for a 7? If so, how would you get sources like this that explain how equations are derived? Thank you!
  24. hey, I have been taking maths standard level for the last 6 months and on tests have gotten 4's, 5's and 6's. However on our mock exam I barely achieved a 3. At University I want to study Law, and the only requirement I have seen is HL6 in English and a 4 in a science or maths SL. I fulfill those requirements therefore I was wondering if I should drop to studies? I have emailed he universities I want to attend (Edinburgh and Glasgow) and they said it would not be a problem or affect my admission. (For reference I take SL; Biology, Maths SL, Spanish B and HL; English A Literature, History and Norwegian A Literature)Moreover, I have been doing quite badly in Biology SL and was thinking that if I moved to studies I would have more time for that subject, and neglect it less?My main question is if I should drop and also if I do how certain is it that my grades would improve?Thank you!
  25. My subjects are English Lit HL French SL Economics HL Chemistry SL Maths SL Biology HL all my teachers are telling me not to do the EE in their respective subject because it's too difficult, too much stress, marked harshly etc. Which is a bit disheartening because I have no clue what to choose. We have to put in two preferences (2 subjects), so I was wondering what you've heard/experienced doing an EE in these subjects. Any opinion would help so much!!!
