Advanced Math Investigation IdeasI am an eleventh grade student taking HL1 Math for the IB diploma. For the uninitiated, HL Math is essentially AP calculus, but covering more topics. Anyways, students have to do an Internal assessment, which in Math, takes the form of an investigation of the student's creation. I was wondering if anyone in this marvelous forum could hook me up with some investigation ideas, maybe centering on calculus, infinity, e, or 0. Really though, I'll take any ideas. I know the equivelent of College Freshman differential Calculus and Integral calculus, along with implicit differentiation. Last edited by Laughing Reaper (20130105 10:43:41) #2 20130105 10:57:02
Re: Advanced Math Investigation IdeasYou can do differential equations, or summations, or DUIS, or contour integrals, or... The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #3 20130105 11:05:54
Re: Advanced Math Investigation IdeasHi Laughing Reaper; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130105 20:26:40
