### The ProjectInternal Assessment

Mathematical Studies

Choose an area to investigate

• This can be of your own devising or from the list of ideas given by your teachers

• Think carefully about the data you will require – is it going to be easy to collect?

• Decide on the TITLE of your project

• Once you have chosen your project theme, you will need to start collecting the data.

• This can be from the Internet or library books (secondary data) or direct measurement(primary data).

• You must credit ALL data sources fully.

• You must collect a suitable amount of data – not too little, not too much. Discuss how and why you chose the data you did.

• This is where you will carry out the calculations required – measures of central tendency and spread, strength of correlation, measures of independence etc.

• You will also create diagrams, tables, charts and graphs to illustrate your data – bar, pie, scatter, pictograms, histograms, box-and-whisker etc.

These are examples of the calculations/diagrams you COULD include – not exhaustive lists

• You must use your charts and calculations from Step 3 to compare, discuss, deduce, interpret, hypothesise, conclude and justify.

• BACK UP ANY STATEMENTS YOU MAKE WITH REFERENCE TO THE STATISTICS FROM STEP 3

DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING LIKE THIS

“ I enjoyed doing this project and it helped me learn a lot about height and weights of Grade 7 students. To improve it I would do more calculations and draw more diagrams”

• You must credit all data sources, and any books you use, especially if you quote directly from them

• You must sign the project to confirm that it is your own work.

• Your project should not exceed 2000 words - do a final wordcount.

• Check your project against the seven assessment criteria given on the blog.

Hand it in on time

There are penalties for missed deadlines.

• If we suspect you have plagiarised any part of the project, the penalties will be severe and could seriously affect your whole IB course

• You will lose marks for including calculations or diagrams that are inappropriate/irrelevant

• Include one full sample calculation for each process used, even if you have used a spreadsheet.

• It is a good idea to work with the assessment criteria at every stage of your project
