IA Would this be an appropriate Math Studies IA topic?

Recommended Posts

I read an article on this and I thought it might make a good Math Studies IA since I am still in the process of picking a topic. My idea is investigating the relation between family income and SAT scores, so for example, the higher the family income the high the child's SAT scores. Then I was thinking of using a free survey website and possibly putting it on here to find the results to get my results (I need to survey a minimum of 100 people) and I feel that it would be to invasive if I did this survey in person so by doing it online would be anonymous.

So if anyone has any feedback, ideas, thoughts on this please let me know! :)

That'd work fine. Two variables and you're testing them against each other. Could always add a thing in the appendix that all names are kept confidential yada yada if you're worried about the ethics part.

Sounds good to me, you have the two variables and are comparing them. Remember for math studies ia you wanna think sciene lab: Hypothesis, data, conclusion, etc. GOOD LUCK !

Would it be easy for you to ask the SAT scores of your fellow classmates or schoolmates?

Isn't there a minimum number of data you're supposed to get?

Well my minimum amount of people I need to survey is 100 but I was just planning to do an online survey and post it on here. I would ask my fellow classmates but I feel like even if I did have them fill out an anonymous survey some of them would still be embarrassed to admit their scores or family income, which I will respect. So Doing it online just seemed easier, plus survey takers will have their scores at their fingertips as at school one might forget their exact scores and could just lie.
