The ProjectInternal Assessment

Mathematical Studies


Step 1 choose and plan l.jpg
Step 1 – Choose and Plan

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

  • State the task – this means ‘write your plan’


Step 2 collect the data l.jpg
Step 2- Collect the Data

  • 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.


Step 3 analyse the data l.jpg
Step 3 - Analyse the Data

  • 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


Step 4 evaluate l.jpg
Step 4 - Evaluate

  • 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 l.jpg
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”


Step 5 finishing off l.jpg
Step 5 – Finishing Off

  • 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.


A few points to remember l.jpg
A few points to remember…

  • 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
