  1. Hi everyone, I was wondering if I could get your opinion on whether this topic is appropriate for a Math Exploration in HL. I am planning on analyzing Poker Odds, mainly by focusing on Pot and Card Odds. I will certainly be using conditional probability, Bayes Theorem, Factorials, Permutations, etc. I will basically give an invented scenario and, from there, I will find the probabilities of having a certain hand and of winning based on the opponent calling or betting. I will also use probability to determine if the odds of the hand are profitable to continue playing. So, what do you guys think? Do you think this is a good topic and that the math used is appropriate for HL? If anyone has a recommendation on what I should investigate in the exploration, or on any changes I should make, feel free to tell me! Anyone who has done an exploration or IA on a similar topic, please comment too! Thank you!
  2. I'm starting the IBDP next school year and I just submitted my final courses for IB. I chose HL - psych, bio and french b, and SL - math aa, english and chem. Initially when I picked these courses, I was planning on doing Zoology in uni, but now I'm a bit more hesitant on doing Zoology. What major/degree can I get in uni with these IB courses? And what do you think of these courses? (aka what are the stress levels like for these classes). Thank you very much!
  3. Hey guys can y'all please tell me which textbooks are great for the following IB subjects: HL-Phy,Chem,Math SL-Eng A, French B, Business management Thank you
  4. Hi! I'm currently thinking of a good topic for my Math Exploration, and I decided to take "The Handshake Problem" as my topic. However, I do not know exactly how to outline/start my IA. Like, i was thinking of applying the "N choose R" in it because we actually discussed that in class. But, I don't know how to make my IA even more sophisticated from then on. I was also thinking of applying this in a more practical sense, like "how many handshakes in a certain country," but isn't that too simple because i will simply just use the formula? Or, how should I explore the exponential growth (curved graph) of the increasing values of the handshake problem? But, I don't exactly know what to explore in that, and it's quite too simple because i will just simply graph. I really need help. Hope anyone out there can help me deepen and structure my essay. Thank you very much in advance!
  5. Hey guys can y'all please tell me which textbooks are great for the following IB subjects: HL-Phy,Chem,Math SL-Eng A, French B, Business management Thank you
  6. Writing my math IA and I want to do something with earthquakes, but I have no idea where to start. I’ve been thinking about maybe doing epicenters or the Richter scale but I can’t find a solid way to incorporate them. If anyone has any ideas please reply!
  7. Hello! So I will be attending UWC next year and I want to do a physics major in university in the US or UK. I have already completed 2 years out of 3 years of high school so I already have good kbowledge in math, physics, chemistry, biology, technology, history, geography, french, arabic, english. I am pretty good in scientific subjects so here is my list of potential ib subjects next year: Math HL (further studies) Physics HL English A Environmenal and Social Studies SL (as a social science) French B Computer Science SL Does this list make me elligible for a physics major? And should I take chemistry SL instead of Computer Science SL? Help would be appreciated
  8. Hey guys! I was looking around for textbooks for HL Math and I was wondering which one of the four I should buy? 1. Pearson http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pearson-Baccalaureate-Mathematics-Diploma-International/dp/0435074962/ref=dp_ob_title_bk/275-7064412-8084468 2. IBID http://www.ibid.com....097_mathematics 3. This textbook by Peter Smythe http://www.amazon.co...s/dp/1490915710 4. Oxford http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/0199129347 Any input will be appreciated! Thanks!
  9. Hi Please help me fill up a really quick survey for my math IA. All you have to do is rate the models honestly! Thank you
  10. I chose bootstrapping in stats as my research topic and I've already done a bunch of research. Bootstrapping requires computer software to run, and so I'd been planning to use Python and some libraries to create a confidence interval. But when I checked the IB EE guide (https://www.shaker.org/downloads/ibextendedessayguide2018.pdf), I saw "Computer programs may only be included (in particular circumstances) in computer science and physics essays." I'm not sure what to do. My topic is quite clearly math, and I'm not sure I can switch it. Are there any exceptions to this rule about computer programs?
  11. Hi everyone, Lots of people says that many universities in UK doesn't allows students with Math Studies. However, only Math HL/SL. I've never been a Math person, so that's why I've choosen Math Studies, it's lot easier. I wanna attend an University in UK, most likely England; Bristol, Leeds or other nearby London. I'm planning on studying Law so badly, and my question is; Do you guys knows any Universities in England who allows Math Studies students, that want to study Law? - Nimra Iqbal, Denmark.
  12. Hi everyone, I need help!! So I have to submit my first draft for MathsAA IA soon and Ive been thinking about this. My idea is to model a queue behaviour at a service counter like at a government counter or banks. So basically how many counters should be opened to meet a certain maximum queuing time for each customer? Please give some advice and tell me what mathematical concepts you think is the best I'd appreciate it a whole lottt
  13. Hi, For my math IA, I chose to do traffic flow. So far, I narrowed down my potential questions to: a) How do trucks contribute to traffic jams and b) What causes traffic jams. Do you guys think that one of these is a do-able topic question, or should i change it? How can i structure my IA to get a good mark? Thanks :))
  14. I want to investigate the use of math in GPS. however, I feel like its too broad of a topic how can I make it more specific?
  15. Hello The first draft of my math IA is due in week, and struggle to decide on a topic. I was thinking of using a sin function to model the motion of a ferris wheel, however, I'm a little unsure how to develop my topic and what maths I should include in my exploration, Any help is greatly appreciated!
  16. Hi, I need an urgent help for my math IA. I have the attached graph, for my set of data. I need to find a suitable function for it and I really cannot find correct one. I tried to split the graph to different parts but the teacher said it won't be good. Therefore, if someone knows how to find a function for this graph I would be very thankful. Thank you in advanced :)))
  17. 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?
  18. Hi guys, I’m currently working on my Math SL IA and I need help on what maths to use. I am investigating the variables affecting reaction time, such as sleep, gender and involvement in sports. My teacher approved my topic, yet he said simple statistics would not be enough for an SL IA. He said I could calculate probabilities from the distribution graphs, but I’m not sure what he meant. If anyone could explain how I could use probabilities and give me more ideas on what maths I could apply in my investigation, I would really appreciate it.
  19. Im planning to do an IA on creating a model of female BMI from age 0 to 20, is creating model and finding out the sine equation enough? If not what else can I do? Thanks guys.
  20. So... I want to do my IA of math aa about the correlation of respiratory diseases and the level of pollution in my country. I don't know if it's a good topic and I want to have a good grade :( Could someone give me more ideas please? I would ask my teacher for help but it is her first year as an IB teacher and my school has just started with the program sooo its kinda messed up Thank you and sorry for my english<3
  21. My math IA is due soon and I was going to focus on weight vs. heigh of jump (grande jete) of ballet dancers. iw as going to take my data from famous dancers and analyse the videos in LoggerPro but I realised that I don't know the scale of the video and each dancer is a different distances from the camera. What should I do? Another idea I had was to look at the height vs. flexibility of a dancer and I could collect the data myself by getting dancers I know to do "sit-and-reach" tests. I would then find the minimum, maximum, median, lower and upper quartile, and IQR. Then I would create a scatter plot and a cumulative frequency curve. Is this complex enough for a Math SL Ia? Please help!!!!
  22. I am currently in year 1 and am a bit worried if taking math applications and interpretations SL will harm my chances of getting into a decent college in the US. My HLs include bio and chemistry (also economics) because I am interested in a major relating to biology or biochemistry. I know that in certain European countries they don't accept math AI SL, but I thought that maybe in the US since they're pretty holistic they wouldn't mind as much, but now that I think about it, because I am interested in the STEM field, choosing a course that is equivalent to the past math studies might not look so good. I was thinking that maybe I can compensate by getting good marks on the SATs since my maths isn't a weak area of mine and I was placed in the advanced class last year so if I score high then it will indicate I am a strong maths student, but I don't know if this would still apply. While I am not aiming for Ivy leagues, I am still looking into quite competitive colleges in the US (acceptance rate 15-40%) so I just wanted to know if whether switching to HL would be a better option. However, I'm scared whether I can keep up with the workload with two HL sciences and HL math. Is it better to change?

    Math IA

    I have decided to have my Math IA revolve around the probability behind the prisoner's dilemma. I need help deciding on three simple maths and one sophisticated math to explain the game (besides a tree diagram and expected prison sentences). I am afraid that I won't have much numbers/math to work with. Thank you in advance.
  25. I have been trying to think of math HL IA Topic relating to music or guitar, so if you guys have some topic that would like to share, please share! Thank you in advance.
