Would my Biorhythms topic be appropriate for a Math HL IA?

Recommended Posts

At the end of this year our teacher introduced IA to us and we had to start exploring the topics that we are interested in. As I am planning on pursuing biomedical engineering, I wanted to apply math into our body. Therefore, I liked the idea of math in biorhythms. The plan is I will convert the sine curves of the biorhythms for 3 strands (intellectual, emotional and physical) into co secant curve and then apply integral calculus to find the area under the graphs. But then I dont know if thats enough for HL Math IA requirements. I WOULD BE VERY THNAKFUL IF YOU GUYS COULD HELP ME OUT WITH THIS. Plus does anyone know how to create a biorhythm by hand??

Biorhythms does not seem to have a scientific basis so it will not help with BME. I do not understand how you plan to convert sine into cosecant, but cosecant integrals do not converge.
