    Did anybody do their extended essay on math. What type of topics did you decide to follow?

    Few people choose to do maths extended essays. This the EE popularity ranking most schools are looking at.
    1. English
    2. Humanities
    3. Sciences.
    4. Other
    5. Maths
    You may have more luck trying to get some past EEs from your IB co-ordinator (from your own school) - and if there aren't any, you'll see that few people actually consider a maths essay.

    Most people at my school steered away from math. The only people who have done it have done such topics as the probabilty of winning the lottery or winning roulette. I can't even think of something challenging but understable that would get a good grade. I was thinking something about calculus.

    :eek: a "B"? It's too good to be a B! The content and writing style are excellent...If I was the person, I would give an A.

    By the way, good luck with all those who are brave enough to write EEs in maths. In my opinion, writing EEs in maths and physics means that you are insanely courageous...

    I'm thinking of writing my EE in philosophy...

    Yea, I wouldn't have given that one a B. Maybe the formatting was off. I didn't see any word counts, for one

    If I could do my EE again, I'd do it in math. Good luck, fellows.

    my friend did it on fibonaccis
    in, this year's IB1, there are like 6 people doing maths EEs
    although ppl think its harder, my friend says its not because they teachers help u a lot. also it's about the only subject you can get away with a very low wordcount!
