    About the IA The IA is a piece of written work which will be based on your personal research

    from a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to investigations, applications, statistical

    studies and surveys. This IA will be done during the course of the year. The project is an

    independent research and data gathering project for which you will collect, prepare, organize,

    analyze, and evaluate data. The project is an integral part of the course and will count as 20% of

    your final IB grade.

    During the summer however, you must come up with a project idea (topic) you wish to pursue.

    Refer to the packet to peruse through some ideas of IA topics. Write down your idea on Form A.

    Find a topic which interests you and which will be exciting to work with. Return the completed

    Form A on the first day with your homework.

    Thank you.

    Have a brilliant Summer! Looking forward to seeing you in September☺
