IRP Disaster

June 25, 2010

Although I have tried to follow the process and instructions of IRP, I am very dissatisfied with IRP process and its production. When I have analysed issues and difficulties that I have encountered during this process, I have found there are not just positive aspects but also there are negative sides I have ignored. These negative aspects affect negatively on my desire to create a perfect IRP compared with my desire at the beginning of strategies. In this blog, I am going to introduce the main issues and I have dealt with.

There are a variety of challenges that impact on my desire and IRP process despite of my accuracy to follow the steps of IRP.

1-      research paper experience

This is the first time I do research in my life. I do not know what research paper means. I thought just bring any topic and present information because I have never had any information about any research in my major which is Math. Therefore, I read more about research paper in math and some beneficial websites which provide a lot of effective and perfect strategies for doing that. Also, I have borrowed and read a helpful book which is Keys for Writers from BSL. Also, I print all important papers from my uni. Although, these strategies help me to have good knowledge about the meaning of research paper, I could not choose effective topic at the beginning.

2-      choosing topic

I followed many ways to choose a topic and I present two topics at the beginning but there are not anyone could help me about that especially because most research in my major about functions and numbers. Therefore, II attended some lectures and chose a topic which I interested in. the issue started from this point because there is not any one can judge whether my topic is appropriate or not. I tried to find comparison in this topic, but it was between facts, that mean not research. When I saw some my classmates topics and considered my teacher’s advice. I found that easy to me but after the time has gone.

 In conclusion, I think I benefit more and it was worth experience, especially about strategies and gain much math vocabulary. Please my classmates if you think I did something wrong advice me



  1. hi, hadil
    I think IRP is also a challenge for everyone. From choose topic to do much research, it is not an easy process due to English is not our mother language. But we try our best to complete it. Hence, I think we can learn more things from IRP: research skill and so on. Maybe we will face with more challenges when we enter the university. ^ ^come on, my dear.

    • Hi baixue
      yeah, i agree with you about new challenge, but actually most students could find a topic easily
      the problem is whether this topic can be suitable for doing research, this a big problem that we faced.
      thanks my best friend

  2. Hi hadil,

    This is first research we did. I sure you will do the second research very well. Do not froget that you gain good exparience from this essignment.

    Good luck with second research
