I am really struggling with simply finding a good topic for my math IA that is at HL level. I was thinking of modeling the spread of gossip as a different approach to modeling the spread of disease but still using the same mathematics. However, I don't know if its going to work and am open to any ideas. Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

Honestly modelling the spread of gossip will probably be a lot different from modelling the spread of diseases... Doesn't sound like a good idea. Simply change the type of disease your modelling. 

Have you heard of SIR model? Sounds like a pretty good topic, check it out. In fact, I happen to have a high-scoring student written Math IA which modelled the spread of diseases using an SIR model. You can check it out here.

Cheers! Let me know if I helped.
