Math Studies IA Ideas

Recommended Posts

Hello IB community !

I am having a bit of trouble formulating a good topic for the math studies IA. I have an idea about what i want to do it on; the correlation between goals scored by premier league forwards who started the match compared to those who came off the bench. Or the probability of a forward coming off the bench scoring as compared to one who started. Can someone please help me better/improve these ideas ? What aspects would I need to consider if I selected one of these topics?

Thanks in Advance !

The answer above doesn't really answer your question I'm afraid, because 1) it's a math studies IA, not an exploration and 2) you're not asking for new topics.

Anyway I don't really understand your question, firstly are you talking about football (soccer if you prefer)?

Also, your idea doesn't seem to lend itself to a good Studies IA since as far as I know it's meant to be presented in the form "how does X affect Y?" (or similar) so that you can easily preform the statistical tests you need to get full marks on the math part. In addition to that, since a criterion is "commitment" the best way to show that is to gather data yourself - something you can't do with this topic (however, it isn't necessary.)

I suggest you read this post if you haven't already. It's really helpful and breaks down everything you need to do to get the best marks on your IA. Good luck!
