Is there a rule about using first person in your IA?

Recommended Posts

I turned in my rough draft and I received notes as well as an angry teacher about using the first person in my paper. However, I looked through sample IAs and literally all of them use the first person as well, which leads me to believe that there is not a rule against it and that my teacher just has her own rules. Also does anyone have any tips on how to write my IA without using "I" or "my?" I can write perfectly fine in other subjects but this is sort of a challenge...

It's acceptable to use the first person in an IA.How can you even get full marks for Personal Engagement without using "I" or "My" in the background information? Nevertheless, this is a good resource about avoiding the personal pronoun.

Yeah like what Rosalina said, first person should be totally fine for the math IA because I did also notice that the exemplars used "I" and they did not get penalized on that.
