What students have to say:

silltilly says:

I did an extended essay in Maths which was cool because hardly anyone does that. They don't expect all that much from you. In fact, they don't care if you write about 1,000 words cos it's mainly formulae and stuff anyway.

I did mine on Vedic Mathematics (Indian Mathematics). I proved some theories including their method for doing square root by hand. It didn't involve too much time and effort actually. All I did was spend a couple of sleepless nights proving theories and then I just had to write it up.

I did mine in maths. Well, actually it was sort of maths/econ but I signed it up as maths. I investigated the uses/applicability of game theory in real-life situations. Was sort of fun to do, not sure if the maths content was advanced enough to get top grade though. This is sorta stupid, since I could have easily used much more advanced mathematical concepts but my supervisor told me that i couldnt expect the examiner to know anything at all about game theory. So I was stuck going through basic stuff such as randomised/dominant strategies and simple iteration...still happy with the result though.

Hi. I am Chemistry student going to UK university, but I did my extended essay in mathematics. I was going to do my extended essay originally in Chemistry field, but all of my plans for this was not accepted. So I decided to do it in Maths. My Extended Essay is about Epidemiology. During the time, there was an outbreak of SARS and so I decided to model the case of China to see if there's any pattern. The main purpose of this essay was to find out whether there's going to be secondary outbreak. My model explained the pattern of SARS in China saying that there will be another outbreak of this disease in China, which actually happened.

So, if you're doing math extended essay like mine, you should find something that is going on in the world.
