# Is this a good topic for my Math HL IA

## Recommended Posts

I want to do my topic on continuous fractions and I find it very interesting, and I don't take SL maths. Most of the people I see doing this topic are past Math SL students. Is it ok if I do it on continued fractions or should I do my math hl ia on something else?

It would be nice to relate continued fractions to infinite series and some Option Calculus stuff, like convergence of series. The trick is to relate non-syllabus topics to the syllabus as much as you can.

thank you!

i also want to make a good aim for it. Is it ok if I write the maths such as golden ratio or the pi to this topic, or should I use mechanics and physics.

Including discussions of continued fractions of golden ratio and pi is a good idea. Be sure to connect the topic to other topics in the syllabus, such as inf geometric series, Calculus Option (if you have time to learn some of the convergence rules). Also be creative and see if you can "make up" some connections to other units as well, for example what probability questions can continued fractions answer.
