  1. Hey there, does anyone know the work count/page limit for the Maths Studies IA this year? I've been reading up about it and it keeps changing every year so now I'm super confused. My teacher told me it was 12 pages, but teachers from the other sets have said that there is no limit... can anyone help with this??? please
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. Hello, I hope everyone is doing well. For the last two years we have not had a good teacher, and unfortunately this may affect my finals because I am behind in some topics. Therefore, I would like to ask if you guys know any study guide that cover the 7 chapters of Maths Studies, or any advice that you can give me to do well in the upcoming exams. I am really worried. Thank you so much, D.
  5. Hi there, I am currently working on my Mathematical Studies IA that l have to get done before the school term commences and l am experiencing a lot of difficulty. For my IA, l am looking at the potential correlation between Secondary School Gross Enrollment Ratio (for both male and female) and a country's GDP (Gross Domestic product - basically how much a country earns/how rich they are). I will be doing this for my Pearson's Correlation Coefficient. For my chi squared test of independence, l will be looking at Unemployment Rates and again, GDP. I have gotten my data from the world book (a resource that offers all this statistical data for each country). In total, l have obtained data for 96 countries and l have been told by my teachers that this is enough data. I have formulated my data into a table which l will include in an attachment in this post so if you are able to check it out and let me know whether it all seems ok, that would be great. After collecting all my data, this is about where it stops. From this point onward, l have no clue on what l need to do and l am really stressing out because l need to have it completed asap. Some people were telling me that l need to calculate my chi squared and get the expected frequency table and make sure that all the numbers were above 5. I honestly have no clue what all this means. I would really appreciate it if someone could offer me some help. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks heaps xx Maths Studies Data.docx
  6. Hi guys! Do you think doing maths studies will hurt my chances of getting into top universities, for an art & design degree? And is it better to get a 7 in maths studies or a 5/6 in maths SL? I think id be able to get 5/6 in SL if I work hard, but I'm wondering if I should take studies to be able to focus more on my Art HL... I was in IB MYP extended before, but wasn't one of the strongest ones in my class... subjects: Art HL English HL ITGS HL Physics SL French AB initio Maths SL (thinking about studies) let me know what you think? thanks!
  7. i am interested in the Bussines and Management course in the UK I am currently doing my IB DP course and i look at some requirements. But i have some questions which someone can help me I am currently taking HL Bussines and management HL Economics HL Computer Science SL French SL English SL Math And my question is I’m doing SL math right now but i was considering Maths studies. And if i do math studies can i still apply UK universities because im feeling SL math is hard and i think if i do studies i will easily get a 6 or 7 making my IB points go higher and also i can focus on my HL subjects and get them at a higher level at around 6-7 What do you guys recommend Thanks A lot,
  8. Hey guys, Recently my teacher pretty much told me that the raw data int he appendix of my maths ia is too long (its about 2 and a quarter pages of temperature readings in a chart). How could I either cut this down, or would this be necessary?
  9. I'm not sure if this is an appropriate question to ask, so let me know if it isn't! I'm retaking my Maths Studies exams this November as I got a low grade and I really need to aim for a 6 in order to get my foot in the door in terms of applying to a teaching course. I'm rubbish at maths, but it's just something I need to ace to pursue the career I want. I'm currently revising by doing past papers and initially I was using an old grading scale to figure out what I'll get, but of course (as many classmates have told me) the grades you get in the exams really depend on how everyone else scores. So I wanna know how many of you who have taken the exams have managed to score over a 5 in Maths? And did the majority of your grade get high grades, or what was the norm?? In terms of percentages, what is the equivalent to a 6 in Maths Studies? I'd be grateful for any input!
  10. I'll love you forever if you do this survey, need 50 sample size or higher... Appreciate'cha!
  11. Hi guys! I'm doing my Maths Studies IA about the the relationship between time spent on using social media and cognitive skills among teenagers. In order to gather data, I need to carry out an experiment. It is going to look like in the following way: - use Facebook for 5 minutes - then go to, play these 4 games, save both your score and the percentile from every game - then use Facebook for 10 minutes and again, play these 4 games, save both your score and the percentile from every game - then use Facebook for 15 minutes and do exactly the same. Next day, use Twitter for 5, 10 and 15 minutes. After each period, play 4 games, save your scores and percentiles. Then do exactly the same for Snapchat. You can do everything on the same day, or you can break this experiment into smaller components. Just make a break between using each social media, so that the gathered data will be unreliable. I created a special table, where you can enter your data. I think I need the table completed until Monday afternoon (Central European Time).You can upload the finished table below or send it to me in a private message. I'd be eternally garteful if you could help me with this. Thanks! social_media.docx
  12. Could you help me get data for my internal assessment? Just answer this survey: thanks
