    This is a worksheet containing guiding questions in order to help students earn top grades for their math studies IA.
  2. Are there any medical universities in Canada that accept Math studies? My HL’s are biology, chemistry and psychology
  3. I am tasked with writing a math IA for Math Studies, but I have no idea what to write on. Our teacher is heavily leaning on the class to either write about a topic that uses Chi Squared testing or Linear Regression as our higher math process, but I don't know what to choose. I've always been bad with coming up with writing topics, but this one has me totally lost. What are some good topics to write on?
  4. Hello! I am a French student doing the IB and I am doing a survey to complete my math studies IA. I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to answer my survey. https://goo.gl/forms/KIMSFSzwaWuudcPz2 Thank you, Thibault
  5. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1KKZMguXKnIiGoeYc5XJfzZ9285sJzC5HoG6NWV9ocyI/edit HI everyone! I'm currently working on my math studies IA and I would really appreciate it if you guys could answer a couple of questions for the data collection! Thank you!!! (it's in both english and french)
  6. I'm doing an IA for math studies. I need to collect data. Please help and complete this preference survey with honesty: https://goo.gl/forms/zpEMRy58PymOdPQD3 The survey is completely anonymous.
  7. Hi! I take math studies, indicating that I absolutely don't want to study anything that has to do with math after graduating from the IB. However, I'm considering to apply to the US so I want to do the "standard" SAT tests (math & English). Some people say that the math is way too hard for math studies students to manage, while others say that the math is simple enough for basically anyone to get a good grade in. Does anyone have any experience with SATs? Can you get a good score even if you're in math studies? Help pleaseee!
  8. Whether there is a correlation between amount of sleep and reaction time? Hello, I would really appreciate it if you could do this mini game on reaction time ( http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime )and record the 5 different numbers you get. Afterwards, comment those five different numbers with the number of hours you sleep on average every night.it's really important this is for my math studies ia Thankyou!
  9. Hello, I'm writing a simple math paper for my Math Studies class and I'm in need for some data, I need 100 pieces of data at least. My paper is on determining wether speaking more than one language influences someone's memory capacity (Does it make them remember things clearly?) and so I'll compare that to people who only speak one language. I found a memory test online created by the university of Rutgers:http://www.memorylossonline.com/learning_memory/mem_games/verbaltest1.html If you guys could do the test honestly and then write your results on the comments along with amount of languages you speak FLUENTLY ex: comment results (or comment a screenshot of it) and next to results comment either 'monolingual' or "speak more than one language" It would mean a lot if you did this as I came late into the class and I really need these results please and thankyou
  10. Hey guys! How did you find Paper 2? I am in TZ1 and i thought it was relatively easy but i had trouble with the first question on the exercise with the pyramid.
  11. Hey guys! How did you all find paper 1? I was in TZ1 and i thought the paper was just brilliant! I only had trouble with exercise 9 who asked something about the amount of money that he would have got without the commission.
  12. hello, I just have a quick question about my ia hypothesis question, I want to know if its testable for ibo. I've gone through a series of questions already and would hate to have to start over because my questions isn't up to ibo standards or isn't testable. topic question: DID THE HOUSE MARKET CRASH OF 2006-2011 AFFECT THE US ECONOMY? or maybe DOES THE CRASH OF THE HOUSE MARKET AFFECT AN ECONOMY? (in case saying US is too specific or needless for math) I did plan on looking only at data from the US house market crash of the recent years , is that okay? I'm open to suggestions in addition any ideas what ibo means by using two equations when analyze data? thank you
  13. Hi guys, so I'm in the middle of a dilemma right now. In university, I plan on going into animation. The problem is, I don't know whether to stay in SL Math or to drop to Math Studies. I don't think I'll need Math SL, but I've heard that universities in Europe tend to not count Studies as a subject.. So should I stay with Math SL or drop to Studies?
  14. The university of Toronto website says that I can't get in if I do Math studies, even though I want to apply to do a bachelor in Arts. Is there any way they might overlook it, particularly because I have no interest in a math related major and my actual predicted score is decent. My predicted scores are: English A HL: 6 History HL: 6 Economics HL: 7 French B SL: 5 Physics SL: 6 Math SL Studies: 7 EE: B ToK: A Total: 39
  15. I'm testing reflex speed verses typing speed. Please respond:) Thank you!! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5WGH6JM
  16. Hey guys! So I've been trying to make up my mind on whether to switch to Math Studies from SL. Math has ALWAYS been a struggle for me. I've had Math SL since IB1 and have continued with it in IB2; however, my grade has been constantly a 2, close to failing, but I've just passed my Mocks (basically by taking advantage of method-points.) Anyway, so the student counselor said it might be a risk for me to take the Math SL final exam what with my grade being a 2. I'm just afraid that if I switch down to Studies that it might close lots of doors to unis for me. My intentions, though, have never included studying more math or going into a career in which math is essential (medicine, engineering, whatever). Being in Math Studies would also raise my overall GPA (even though it is good at the moment, but it'd be a bonus.) So: I'm worried that sticking to Math SL will result in me failing the final Math SL exam; but unis would appreciate SL more. Math Studies would give me better grades and I'd pass the finals; I'd have time to invest in my other subjects even more. On the other hand, there's the question of my future studies and universities not liking Math Studies (even if I'm not interested in a math-based/centered career.) I would really, really appreciate the input and any advice you'd have to offer me. Thank you! (:
  17. Hi, I'm currently doing my Math IA and I would appreciate if you take my survey it's really quick https://es.surveymonkey.com/s/ND2NVT6 Send me the link to your surveys and I will take them too
  18. Hi! Here's an overview of my math studies IA, My question is "Do the heights of high school students follow a normal distribution?" I gathered the heights of about 90 students, grouped them together in a frequency table then I will draw a histogram, calculate the percentages of the standard deviations and compare them to those of a normal distribution. Finally, I will also use a chi-squared test to see if my data satisfies a normal distribution. Would that be enough? Are there any OTHER mathematical statistical tools I could use in my IA? Or any way I can incorporate a graph into this? Help much appreciated, Thanks a lot!
  19. I'm doing my math studies IA on the nation's national debt compared to suicide rate and Im confused on what math to do. Do I do spearman's or pearson's or chi squared or what? Thanks! Any input is appreciated
  20. I'm about to start by IB course in a month yet I'm keep doubting my options!! I am really at loss for what HLs to take. Being more of a humanities student, math doesn't come easy to me and sciences are… ehhhhh. These currently exemplify my emotional distress My choices are: HL Lit (confirmed, so excited!!) HL History (pretty sure) HL Economics or Chemistry SL Mandarin (compulsory) SL Economics or Chemistry SL Math For my IGCSEs, I took Co-ordinated sciences, Eng Lit, Eng Lang, Geography, Economics, E Maths, Chinese. I'm not taking Geography for because even though it's fairly easy, I find it really troublesome memorizing all the case studies. BUT there isn't much physical geog in the IB syllabus, and I was wondering if the syllabus was interesting??? Will HL History really hard for someone who hasn't taken history at O levels standards? I know that it requires a lot of essay writing. That is perfectly fine with me esp since the syllabus looks really interesting. HL Economics Pros: Econs theories come pretty easy to me I have fun learning the subj I've learnt it before The past papers don't look too forbidding Cons: It needs math?? (which I'm not great at) Taking two humanities as HLs limits university course options HL Chemistry Pros: Chemistry > all other sciences (in terms of how much I like it) Opens up a lot of university courses Cons: I'm not the best at sciences.. in general (way better in eons) It's hard af!! (apparently) Hard to get a 7 I really just need someone to push me the right way so I can finally make a choice! I tend to do much better in subjects I find interesting. Preferably, I would like to go to into Law, Political Science, Sociology side of university degrees. Thank you!
  21. Hello, I'm currently doing my IA for Math Studies and in the process of collecting the data. My Math IA is only for IB students so It's a little more difficult to collect sufficient data, so I need as many responses as possible. Those who are IB students either DP1 (otherwise known as Year 12 / Grade 11) or DP2 (otherwise known as Year 13 / Grade 12) are able to complete this survey. Those doing the full IB are able to complete it, but those doing Certificate need to be doing 6 IB courses to be able to do it. It wont take that long please answer truthfully and complete all the answers Thanks a lot to those who help :-) This is the link :https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1rSSSfqL_EkRJEfEOVtnaDXTFz0o-HoRzI_tDrOJ9_Fs/viewform (Please try and do it, you know my pain)
  22. Hi fellow IB students So I have started the first year of IB two months ago and I've been taking Mathematical Studies. However, I like maths and I've started wondering recently whether I couldn't switch to SL (although I don't need for the university courses I have chosen). I would like to know which grades I could possibly get at Math SL (with some effort but without spending much more time on Math than on other subjects), considering that right now I get about 75 to 80% on Math Studies without studying at all and 90% to 100% with some effort (about one or two hours of preparations before a test) and quite bad teacher. Is there anybody who have moved from SL to Studies or the other way round and can tell the difference in grades and time spent on studying Math? Oh, and in the Polish version of GSCE in 2012 (which is quite easy, though, I have put a link to it below, so you could maybe compare it with your GSCE) I got 93% without preparing. I have also done pre-IB where I got about 65% in tests. The material we did in pre-IB was considered to be SL material but without harder parts of it. However, when I compare this year SL material with material from pre-IB, I can see some differendes so I can't really say if it's the same level of difficulty. And I also had a bit worse work ethic in pre-IB, I was often unprepared, so my grades may be better at SL this year, as I am willing to work harder (although I'm still not very good at maths - I only like it and that's why I suffer on Studies). To sum up, considering this, I would like to ask how well I could do at SL. I don't want to move without being sure that even with Math at SL I have chances to get at least 32 points (but rather about 35) that I need for my univesity course, especially that I don't need to chooce SL after all. I would also appreciate some examples of your grades changing when you have moved to another level. Thanks in advance and sorry for all the mistakes. I'm still not that good at English, although I have been learning it at school for past ten years. http://pliki.echodnia.eu/pdf/egzaminGimnazjalny2012matematyka.pdf - this Polish GSCE sample in Math, you probably can't understand much of it, but it's easy to see its difficulty, it's not even Studies... however, I did well on it and some people complained, so maybe I still have some chances at Math SL?
  23. I'm doing my IA on the correlation between gender and social media usage (time spent social networking every day). I am going to do a chi squared test for my first sophisticated process but need help finding a second one. Does a t-test count as a sophisticated process? PLEASE HELP!
