Welcome to Laurier’s Library website! This is a great place for resources that you may need this year and next.
IB expects that you will reference any material that is not your own. In the case of the Math Exploration/IA, you may be referencing articles, studies, research done by others, images, charts, graphs, etc.
APA is the formatting style that you should use for Math. However IB will accept MLA or Chicago as long as whichever format you use, you remain consistent throughout.
The following links are here to help guide you in this process.
Today we’re going to look at some databases within the TDSB’s Virtual Libraryfor your peer-reviewed articles.
Remember that the databases are password-protected and some of the passwords have changed since last year. You will need to be logged into AW to access these resources. Look for the orange Passwords & Info icon in the Virtual Library.
We will also review APA referencing as you will need to cite your source for your article. Please reference the following document for examples, specifically on page 2. OWL Purdue is also another good source for reference help.
