  1. Hello everyone, I need Math HL IA ideas, which are not overused! thanks in advance!
  2. Hello guys, as a topic in Math IA, I chose to explore mathematics behind voting systems. According to my research from various papers, its closely related to probability/statistics, but nothing else. If I won't have Calculus and stuff like logarithm in my IA, does it mean it is a weak IA? If anyone has Math sources on voting, please help me out. Thank you in advance
  3. SOoooo I being open here is the IB always this hard. I'm a year 1 and I'm 2 months into school. So far I am doing terrible in all of my classes except Mandarin SL. Can anyone else relate to the first few months being rough annnnnnndddd how do I get out of this bad grade slump because I've NEVER gotten the kind of grades I'm getting right now, like ever, in my life. It gets better right? Because if yes, how did ya'll do it??
  4. Soo, I did my IA based on Newton's law of cooling (for differential equations) and, although in the beginning my teacher said it was ok, now he told me that it is too simple and that I should somehow expand on it. Does anyone have an idea on how I could make it a bit more complex? Or perhaps something that I could add to make it more diverse?
  5. 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?
  6. Hi guys!! Im retaking HL Chemistry and SL Math this upcoming November and I was wondering if there is any advice anybody could give me?.. Or if there is anybody in the same position as me who is also retaking one of the subjects in November:) If you guys have any advice regarding possible online review courses, materials you recommend, or just the nature of the November examinations I would really really appreciate it. Thank you!!☺️

    Math IA

    I still havent started my IA, but i was looking for a good question that doesnt include probability does anyone have suggestions
  8. It's my first year at IB and I took English, Biology, Chemistry and Geography as HL, but I wasn't good enough on my math test so the teachers assigned me into math studies without any chance to even shift to SL. I was wondering, are there any unis that accept you for having a high level of sciences, but a low level of math? I was researching some stuff and most of it is terrifying for me since they require to have a minimum of SL. I was looking around Western Europe and Canada and I don't know what to do. Please help me ;-;
  9. 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).
  10. Hey guys, Im not sure whether or not IB goes into Permutations and Combinations too deeply or even at all. I've asked my seniors and other IB schools if they did this topic, for which i got a reply saying no. IB HAS stated Permutations and Combinations in their 2016 syllabus so does that mean it's going to be in IB diploma exam? btw i start the IB program in 2 days
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. hi i have to write an ia for math sl and i wanted to model climate change. is this a suitable topic for math sl? also i need help writing it because i dont know how to go about it? like what do i do first? do i make a sine curve? the internet isnt really helping right now. can someone give me a few steps on how to model climate change? please i really need help! im very confused!
  14. 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
  15. Which level math should I take if I want to be able to (on the side) take AP stats and calc ?
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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)
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
