This is a really hard thing to do if there isn't a lot of information. I can't give you IA topics, because it depends on the level of maths you're taking and what your interests are. I've usually seen that the best IA's are done in topics that you're passionate and familiar about. I've seen some people model equations during sports and others using maths in law cases. The best way to wrack up the points is picking something you know inside and out, so you know the ins and outs of it. This will be very helpful during the maths process.
So there are 2 main topics when picking a question:
What are my interests?
- Extra curricular activities?
- favourite class?
- future career options?
What did I like in maths?
- find the topic(s) that you liked /did well at
- sometimes it could be useful in the long run if you pick your weakest maths topic, as the IA will offer significant revision. However, for this to work you'd need to put in the effort to really get good at it.
Once you know these 2 things you can just google it, for example if you really like bitcoin and want to work with calculus, you could search "bitcoin calculus" in google and get a general idea of what you're working with!
